Rousey signs long-term UFC deal

Rousey has put pen to a multi-fight contract that will likely have ensured that she is one of the highest paid athletes in mixed marital arts.

Speculation regarding whether Rousey would switch to boxing in order to face-off against Laila Ali sparked talk of her future, but the former Olympian says she is committed to MMA.

"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 told ESPN earlier this week.

Rousey dispatched of Cat Zingano in just 14 seconds last month, and will be looking to repeat the trick at UFC 190 in Brazil when she meets Bethe Correia.
