Ronda Rousey recently signed a deal that will keep her with the Ultimate Fighting Championship for the foreseeable future.
The women’s bantamweight champion indicated during a recent appearance on ESPN’s “First Take” that she had recently renegotiated her contract with the Las Vegas-based promotion.
"I'm a UFC fighter. I just renegotiated. I have a lot of fights that I have in the UFC before I would be able to go do anything else," Rousey said in response to a question about her interest in a potential boxing match against Laila Ali.
Sherdog.com confirmed with a UFC official on Thursday that Rousey has indeed signed a new long-term deal with the Zuffa-owned organization.
The Olympic judoka is coming off a 14-second submission of Cat Zingano at UFC 184. Rousey’s next Octagon appearance will take place on Aug. 1, when she defends her 135-pound belt against the unbeaten Bethe Correia at UFC 190.
