Ronda Rousey Has 50-50 Chance Of Return - Trainer Edmond Tarverdyan

Ronda Rousey Has 50-50 Chance Of Return - Trainer Edmond Tarverdyan

Ronda Rousey had in her last fight lost to Amanda Nunes in a one sided Bout back in UFC 207 in December last year, and since then has refused to address the future of her UFC career. 

UFC president Dana White has already stated that it's unlikely she will set foot in the Octagon again but her long-term trainer Edmond Tarverdyan still believes that she still has a "50-50"  chance of return to the sport. 

"It's going to be her decision," Tarverdyan said. "Maybe one more. I've spoken to her; I don't know if she'll do it. If her body does give her one more fight, and she really wants to, mentally, she might. It's 50-50 right now, I'd say."

Ronda Rousey (12-2) has had injury issues in recent parts of her career but hasn't ruled out a comeback to the Octagon and Tarverdyan also admitted that She still has hopes of the superfight against current UFC featherweight champion Cris "Cyborg" Justino.

"I would love her to fight one more fight, and a fight I always wanted for her was 'Cyborg' versus Ronda," Tarverdyan said. "When I trained Ronda, I knew Ronda could beat 'Cyborg.' I know that. 'Cyborg' is too slow.

"I'm telling you, she's too slow for us. Ronda would beat her. And Ronda needs a challenge. She really needs to be like, 'This person is no good. I need to prove something to the whole world.' That's how Ronda works good. She didn't have that with Holly [Holm] ... This one, she has it."

There has been speculations of her potential switch to professional Wrestling and had even been there to support her close friend and former professional fighter Shayna Baszler at the WWE weekend in Las Vegas.

No deal has been announced by the WWE concerning her switch and current UFC featherweight champion Cris "Cyborg" Justino is also focused on getting a fight with Holly Holm, which is not also made official yet.
