How much will the mixed martial arts (MMA) world miss Ronda Rousey when she's gone?
We may soon find out, as "Rowdy" plans to go off the grid following this weekend's (Sat., Nov. 14, 2015) title fight against Holly Holm at UFC 193, which is set to blow the roof off the 60,000-seat Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
"I'm selling a product and I have to be out there ... I don't have the option not to be," she told Rolling Stone. "But, after this fight, I'm definitely going to let some people miss me, for sure. Believe me, there's nothing I would like to do more than disappear for a while."
Rousey has been a busy bee over the last few years, bailing out Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) when it needs a last-minute headliner to get the promotion out of a pickle. In fact, her bout against Holm will be her third in 10 months. In addition, it will only be three months since she knocked Beth Correia's block off at UFC 190.
As far as when she'd like to return, Rousey is eyeing a comeback at UFC 200, which is tentatively scheduled to go down in July of 2016 (details).
"I would like to wait until UFC 200 to fight again. I'm going to be filming [movies] in the meantime, so I'm still going to be keeping busy," she continues. "When I'm filming it's kind of weird, I'm on camera the whole time, but nothing really goes out until a year or two later. It is kind of like disappearing in a way."
Question is: If Holm flips the script and upsets Rousey in "The Land Down Under," will Ronda lobby for a quick rematch?
But, if all goes as planned and Ronda secures her sixth consecutive title defense, how much will you miss her once she goes on hiatus?
