Does Ronda’s entrance into the UFC hall of fame mean that she has officially retired?

    On the other hand, if she was still fighting, would the UFC have put her in the hall of fame at the same time?

    UFC hall of fame is the biggest joke in sports

    Officially? No. I don't know if there will ever be an official retirement announcement from her. Randy and Mark Coleman were inducted into the HOF and they were still fighting, in fact they fought each other at UFC 109 after they were both HOFers.

    Ronda doesn’t belong anywhere near the hall of fame.

    Didn’t see get beaten up by Holly Holm?

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!!!

    No. Ronda even left the door open for a possible return to MMA somewhere down the road, plus she's on record as saying she doesn't see the need for an official statement even if she never does end up fighting again.

    Fighters are elected into the hall of fame while still actively fighting.

    Look man. UFC is political as can be, but there is no joke about that HOF.
    It may need additions to it (I can name a dozen) but it's legit.

    A handful of those people were in, whilst fighting.

    I don't care about hype or personality. I just admire fights so Rousey belongs there. I'd also be happy to see her back. She had some serious holes, exposed but was tough as fuck. Did you see the shots it took to knock her out? A launched head kick then follow up punches. Nunes still left her standing for the TKO. Mad ground skills and actually finished the "submission" the way you should; until completion. Don't see many of those any more. Mir style.

    She should’ve had a tune-up before Nunes honestly.

    GOAT of WMMA. Until some other female fighter can do what she did in just 6 years. But until then, Rogan was right. Once ever. GOAT.

    I can see her making a return down the road... Shoot. Another cross promotion with WWE. Ronda and Brock at the big July UFC.

    I believe the last thing she alluded to was that she wasn't saying never, but that she is happy now and doesn't foresee it.

    So beating Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano makes you HoF material?

    Coolest story ever.

    when she signed with wwe that ment she would never fight mma again. cause after the brock lesner thing wwe ended letting people do that.

    brock was a huge pr hit to wwe and showed there drug program was a joke.
