Ronda Rousey to become first woman to enter the Octagon while 8 months pregnant

Rousey followed up her pregnancy announcement with the news she'd be returning to the Octagon

Preggo women have been making waves in elite sports over the last few years. Not to be overshone by Serena Williams Grand Slam win while two months pregnant in 2017, Ronda Rousey will become the first UFC fighter to enter the ring while 8 months pregnant.

The fight will be the first return for Rousey to the Octagon, since her humiliating loss to Holly Holm. 

“I’m coming back with twice the power,” Rousey told The Rodent, “and I’m ready to kick whichever sterile bitch I’m up against right in the pussy.”

The Divas star denied allegations that the move was just to create a story arc in a failing reality show about WWE fighters. “It’s not exactly like people are going to pay extra to see a pregnant woman do MMA,” Rousey said. “Why? Do you know anyone who’d be willing to pay? How much?”

Following her MMA return, Rousey is planning on transitioning her WWE persona to better reflect her pregnancy. “I’ve been workshopping a few different ideas with Vince McMahon,” Rousey said to The Rodent. “At the moment my favourite is just painting my belly black and slamming into people, I’ll be ‘The Bowling Ball.’”
