We have not seen former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey inside the octagon since her devastating loss to now former champion Holly Holm at UFC 193 in Australia, back in November 2015.
Rousey suffered a brutal knockout loss and sustained damage to had jaw but more importantly her ego. For months Rousey remained as distant from the limelight and refrained from media interaction as much as she could, before slowly opening back up.
The former champion opened up on the Ellen DeGeneres show about contemplating suicide while struggling to find herself once again. Several months ago when Rousey was finally cleared for training TMZ had spotted her back at the Glendale Fighting Club where she often trains, but since then, not much has been seen.
In the time that Rousey has been away from the octagon, Holm has defended and lost her title to current champion Miesha Tate. After Tate won the title, UFC President Dana White said, “Ronda wasn’t watching the fight. I text Ronda and she said ‘What happened?'” White said. “I said ‘Miesha just choked her unconscious’ and she said ‘Looks like I’ve got to get back to work.'”
Now we have proof that she’s back in the office.
The below photos are from today on Venice Beach.
