Two days after the most devastating and humiliating loss of her career at the hands of the current women's UFC Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes, Ronda Rousey has officially announced her retirement from MMA competition. In a move many observers had expected, the former Champion who once enjoyed an aura of invincibility, in a written statement and with tears streaming down her battered face which was still red and swollen after Friday night's beat down from the Brazilian, said at a press conference:

"I know that this is going to come as a great shock to many of you and to many of my adoring fans who have supported me in my ups and downs, but it is with deep sadness that I inform you that today Sunday 1st January, the first day of the new year 2017, I Ronda Rousey have officially retired from MMA competition. I honestly thought to myself that I stood a chance of defeating Amanda and of gaining back my title but I guess that I underestimated her strength and punching power. I should have known after my loss to Holly in November 2015 that I am not a brawler. Maybe I bit off way more than I could chew by fighting her. She really is a BBA. A Brazilian Bad Ass. Its going to take something really special for anyone to stop her in the near future and any woman who fights her I wish them good luck because they are going to need plenty of it."

Then came the other shocking part of her announcement:

"Although I am sad that I am leaving the octagon, I am not giving up on competing. I have decided that for the benefit of my broken ego and overall health, I will now be fighting in the WWE. I spoke to Mr. McMahon over the phone last night and he told me that it would be great to have me in the ring. He is still organizing my contract and when he's done, I'll be on the verge of a new job and unlike MMA; I already know the results of the fights. That said, after all that pounding my head took on Friday night, I hope I'll be able to remember the script when I start competing."
