If you were in the camp hoping to see Ronda Rousey take an extended leave after her loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193, you might get your wish. Rousey's only been a pro since 2011 but was one of the most active UFC champions as she became the mainstream face of MMA. Her look, dominance and attitude made her the sport's biggest star in short time and it may have finally caught up with her. "MMA? Yea, they've been making me go non-stop," Rousey told MMA Junkie. "I mean, my first year I fought six times. I feel like I've been burning the candle at both ends for a long time. In Judo, I took a good period of time off after the Beijing Olympics and I feel like I'm bodily and mentally in a similar space where it's just what I need right now." That post-Olympic break in 2008 is what Rousey has referred to as a time she didn't think she "could get any lower." A total 180 from a life of strict discipline, Rousey has said she spent those next two years "partying," smoking, drinking and developing a Vicodin habit. But it was also during that time she discovered MMA and fell back in love with competition. "It's been surprising to me how happy I've been being away from [fighting]," said Rousey. "I'm being purposefully mysterious right now because I think people have taken my availability for granted, and I've kind of just wanted to disappear." http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/2/1...r-mcgregor-donald-cerrone-mma-news/in/2530418 Looks like Ronda's judo coach might have been right when he said she wouldn't come back.
