Ronda Rousey Breaks Her Silence

Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey has not ruled out returning to the Octagon despite her devastating 48-second loss to Amanda Nunes.

Rousey suffered defeat in her first fight since she was knocked out by Holly Holm in 2015.

The former champion was bludgeoned by Nunes from the first bell as the Brazilian retained her bantamweight title at UFC 207.

Rousey did not face the media following her defeat on Friday but has now revealed she will not make a hasty decision about her future.

"I want to say thank you to all of my fans who have been there for me in not only the greatest moments but in the most difficult ones. Words cannot convey how much your love and support means to me," she said in a statement to ESPN.

"Returning to not just fighting, but winning, was my entire focus this past year. However, sometimes - even when you prepare and give everything you have and want something so badly - it doesn't work how you planned.

"I take pride in seeing how far the women's division has come in the UFC and commend all the other women who have been part of making this possible, including Amanda.

"I need to take some time to reflect and think about the future. Thank you for believing in me and understanding."
