It has been confirmed that Rousey will not be present for next Wednesday’s Ultimate Media Day to promote UFC 207.
Ronda Rousey has completely shut out the media ahead of her bantamweight showdown with Amanda Nunes at UFC 207, MMA Junkie confirmed on Friday.
Rousey, the former 135-pound champion, lost the belt to Holly Holm at UFC 193. The Olympic bronze medalist was knocked out in the second round by a vicious head kick and follow-up punches, and has shunned the MMA media ever since.
There was a time when Ronda Rousey was as broke as can be, living out of her car before she made it big in mixed martial arts (MMA). While she is undoubtedly one of the highest-paid athletes in the sport, "Rowdy" isn’t motivated by money.
Unlike other mega combat stars such as UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor and boxing icon Floyd Mayweather — who aren’t afraid to flaunt their millions — Rousey isn’t about that life.

One — well, almost — and done.

In the first of two title fights at UFC 211, Joanna Jedrzejczyk strawweight champion put on a striking clinic and picked apart Jessica Andrade on her way to another successful title defense.

UFC champion Conor McGregor is never hesitant to discuss money. Today, however, he put a price tag on his financial gains from a busy 2016 fight campaign.
The year has already been very good to McGregor (20-3 MMA, 8-1 UFC).
