    For those that haven't seen it

    "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," Rousey said in a statement provided 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."

    I don't see it that way. I think she ditches Edmund and comes back.

    I think she should give it one more go, but she has to dump Edmond. If she changes camps and still loses, then it's probably best to retire.

    At least she congratulated her opponent by name this time.

    Can you imagine the speculation if Ronda announced that she is no longer with gfc?

    Not a fan by any means but it's nice that she at least made a statement on the loss this time around

    Actually wouldn't mind to see her fight one more time and retire afterwards. Just tell Edmond to fuck off

    Publicly you mean....they hugged and shared words in the cage. I don't need Ronda to give Amanda props for me to hear

    It's embarrassing and classless of her to not show her face to the media. She had no problem doing it while she was winning and all her defeated foes would do it all the same. Once it was flipped and she lost she couldn't handle it. Even Conor got embarassed by nate and still went to the media. Keep hiding ronda

    the woman's division didn't come a long way since ronda. It 's just better fighters like cyborg were suppressed from stealing ronda's spotlight. The whole WMMA agenda was a sham

    She still has imo the most natural talent of anyone in that division.

    She has to change camps though.. She was already done before she even attempted a takedown, its just absolutely ridiculous considering how good she is on the ground, that she didn't even try to take Holly or Amanda down.

    (I know she tried after being rocked, but at that point you're off balance and not at your best)

    Very stock standard. It's basically one of those statements where they say nothing at all.
