But cautions that her idea of a "break" is probably much different than Georges St. Pierre's.

Rousey has been very active.
She will definitely be on that year end card
Co main to Pettis vs Melendez


If the ufc thinks that injury bug Pettis will not pull out of the fight they are nuts
They need a double title fight for insurance
I'll telling you now Pettis will pull out

Ronda just gets on my nerves! She is no doubt the best female fighter out there right now. But there are some girls knocking on the door. If she takes a break I hope they make a intrem belt. Now about Pettis, I could definitely see him getting "injured" before his fight will Gill. But if some how he doesn't we will have a new Champ at LW by years end.

If every champion defended there belt three times a year (Febuary, July, as she stated "end of year card")
I would be so happy.

Taking 6/7 months out I have no problem with given she's already beaten everyone but Zingano (who needs a tune up fight) and Ronda fought twice inside 2 months.

I dislike Ronda but she's earnt a break and the division does not need an interim champion, ughhh

Sounds good to me, maybe she won't be in every other headline.

She is gonna run through Davis, I really wish Zingano didn't get injured....not that she would have beaten Ronda, just think she presents a more interesting match up.

Chick is talking about 1 month off...not really headline material, but the media loves stars.

People forget, Zingano not only coming off an injury, but her husband committed suicide this year. Glad she even cares about the sport now.

If ronda wins she will take a few months off, and rightfully so, she has wrecked shop in the division and a little time off will help the division solidify the next contender by years end. If she loses to Davis, that will be one angry Ronda Boo Boo who will be willing to fight again instantaneously. But does anyone else see her taking some time off for a new movie perhaps?
