Is Rousey off to WWE?

Ronda Rousey is ripe and ready for a swap over to WWE, that's according to WWE supremo Paul Heyman.

Rousey's MMA career is in the balance following back-to-back losses to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes. 

There has been no word from Rousey's camp since Nunes knocked her out in just 48 seconds at UFC 207 in December, fuelling rumours that she might be done with the sport altogether.

However, Heyman believes the former UFC women's bantamweight champion could prove to be an asset to the WWE brand

"I think Ronda Rousey doing anything in WWE is a natural fit," Heyman told The Fight Society podcast.

"I'd love to see it and would be happy to discuss with her all the benefits that she could endure by being a Paul Heyman girl.

"I think the WWE audience would embrace Ronda Rousey with open arms. Just her name recognition alone is huge. It doesn't matter, her past two experiences in the UFC. All that matters is if she got involved in a story that people could relate to and sink their teeth into and get excited about."

Rousey has appeared in WWE before, back when she seemed untouchable in the octagon. After her fifth consecutive title defence in 2015, Rousey threw Triple H on the floor and caught Stephanie McMahon in an armbar.
