Ronda Rousey saying goodbye to MMA?

Ronda Rousey has announced she will be retiring soon.

The mixed martial art artist confessed her Dec. 30 fight with Amanda Nunes will be one of her last fights.

“I’m wrapping it up…,” she told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday. “So everyone better watch. The show isn’t going to be around forever.”

The 29-year-old admitted it isn’t the training itself that is hard, but the anticpation of it all.

“I think it’s more the buildup that’s tiring more than anything else,” she continued. “If we had a fight right now, I’d fight and then go get dinner and I wouldn’t feel really tired about it.

“It’s the weeks and weeks of buildup where you know you’re fighting this one person and it’s, like, this showdown and the most important thing in your whole life and then there are millions of people watching. It’s that buildup for weeks on end. If it happened right now, I wouldn’t be nervous. It’s the waiting.”

As most of the world knows, last year Rousey faced off against Holly Holms as an undefeated champion, and walked away the loser.

Rumours have been spreading about a future rematch, but no date has been scheduled.

Since the loss, Rousey stepped away from fighting and dived into acting. She made an appearance in the last “Fast and Furious” film and will star in the upcoming “Road House” remake.

Sad to see her go, but hey you can’t be the great forever right?
