By all accounts, Rousey's move to WWE wouldn't necessarily be full time because she's now in production on her next film role in the movie "Mile 22" where she will star alongside Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich and "Walking Dead" star Lauren Cohan.
After Bazsler's win, Rousey was confronted by Charlotte Flair, clearly teasing a potential battle.
What had been rumored for months now appears close to becoming a reality: Ronda Rousey is set to join the WWE.
Ronda Rousey might be looking to win a WWE championship belt.
And it seems like the first ever female UFC Champion will embark on a different adventure as two people close to her told USA TODAY that she's finalising a switch to WWE. By the time Rousey lost to Nunes she was coming up against an athlete who devoted her entire existence to excelling at MMA, and it showed. Name the place", then added, "Oh, not today? "I'll be waiting to hear from you".

Charlotte police say Megan Stack, and her daughter Ava, were last seen Monday as the mother picked up this child from school. Authorities say they are concerned about their safety due to Megan's emotional state, which they did not elaborate on.
Overall, if this move comes to fruition, it's not so much a direct loss for the UFC given the likelihood Rousey wasn't returning to the cage for them.
Rousey has always been known as a big fan of pro wrestling, even as she rocketed to fame as a former Olympic bronze medalist in judo and then became a dominant force in MMA. In a video posted to her Twitter account on December 1st previewing Rousey's new website, footage was shown of Rousey training at the WWE Performance Center. She has not fought in the UFC since her loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 on December 30th, 2016.
That will nearly certainly stand as Rousey's final MMA fight, as even UFC President Dana White has said he doesn't expect her back in the octagon. "I think she's interested in the opportunity, I'm interested in offering her the opportunity, so we have some talking do". Meanwhile, she has appeared this year on NBC's "Blindspot", and is filming scenes for a Mark Wahlberg movie called "Mile 22".
Speculation has been running wild over a possible Wrestlemania appearance next year at New Orleans for a long time now and the 30-year-old fuelled the rumours last September.
