Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey may not be speaking to the mixed martial arts (MMA) media -- or anyone else, for that matter -- but she is willing to make an exception for promotion president Dana White.

After all, they've grown very close over the past few years.

"I've talked to her almost everyday after the fight and when she sat down with me and Lorenzo a few days ago, she said, 'I was exhausted going into that fight. I was exhausted mentally, physically, emotionally,'" White told "Off The Record" with Michael Landsberg. "She had a lot of personal things going on, too, with her family."

No kidding.

Rousey was knocked out by Holly Holm in the UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) main event last month in Australia, and since then, has made her best effort to stay out of the public eye. While she appears to be healing up based on the brief glimpses we did see (video), it sounds like she could use the time off.

Before her inevitable rematch in 2016.
