Ronda’s former coach: “You may never see her again.”

Ronda’s former coach: “You may never see her again.”

We are literally hours away from Ronda Rousey making her return to the octagon and speculation has been swirling ever since her fight with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes was announced as to what she would do following UFC 207. Some think that a loss would mark the end of her career in mixed martial arts, while others believe that win or lose she might call it quits.

One person that has known Rousey for most of her life is her former judo coach, Jimmy Pedro, Jr. In a recent chat with Bleacher Report, Pedro gave his thoughts on what he believed Ronda would do following UFC 207:

“I think she needed the time off. She needed to heal. She was severely depressed. She needed the time to put things in perspective and realize, again, that everyone is human. Everyone gets beat. No one is invincible. When Ronda has something to prove to the world, she’s tough. It’s the way she was brought up. It’s part of her DNA. The Ronda that I know, you have to kill her. She’s never going to quit. If she’s alive and breathing, she’s still fighting. I think she’s going to come out, win this fight and you may never see her again.”

On a recent appearance on Ellen, Ronda herself hinted that may she be looking to retire soon as she said, “I’m wrapping it up,” in response to how long she expects to stick around.

Whatever the case may be, fight fans are in for one hell of a fight tonight.
