Ronda Rousey became the first female UFC champion by putting on dominant performances. Many fans and followers acknowledge the fighter as ‘The Baddest Woman On The Planet’. Besides MMA fans, the NBA star, LeBron James, holds Rousey in high regard as well. The four-time NBA champion and Los Angeles Lakers superstar also revealed why he did not meet Rousey, even though he had an opportunity to.
@DatDudeDHoov As long as she wanted me to last. I wanted to introduce myself to her at the ESPYs but didn't want her to kick my butt.
— LeBron James (@KingJames) July 28, 2015
On Twitter, a user asked LeBron James, “@KingJames how long would you last in the ring with Ronda Rousey?” James noticed this tweet by the user. The NBA superstar replied, “@DatDudeDHoov As long as she wanted me to last. I wanted to introduce myself to her at the ESPYs but didn’t want her to kick my b*tt.”
In a similar instance, James once also did not meet the Undertaker. The WWE legend was at a Cleveland Cavaliers game. Undertaker stood outside the locker room for what was described as an uncomfortable hour. However, LeBron James never showed up to meet the WWE legend.
There was an explanation to why LeBron James did not come out. However, this explanation won’t make the Undertaker fans happy. “Here’s a life lesson. If you don’t have an appointment, don’t already know James personally, aren’t a business associate or a small child, the odds of “meeting” James before or after a Cavs game in or near the locker room are not great.”
“I once saw Houston Astros stud second baseman Jose Altuve try to get a meeting with James after a game against the Houston Rockets in Texas. The request came through various team PR officials. Let’s just say James had no interest.”

There is no doubt about Ronda Rousey’s credentials. While the fighter has faced a lot of top-level competition, she has been absent from the UFC octagon since December 2016.
What has Ronda Rousey been up to since her absence in the octagon?
Ronda Rousey dominated the UFC women’s bantamweight division. She was one of the key factors in developing women’s MMA. However, since her loss against Amanda Nunes, fans have not seen Rousey back in the octagon.
In her time away from the octagon, Rousey shifted to the world of pro wrestling. The former bantamweight champion also made appearances in movies and TV shows.
While the fighter never announced her retirement, it seems unlikely that she would return to the octagon. When Ellen DeGeneres asked Rousey if she would return to MMA, the fighter replied, “I think it’s just as likely as me going back to another Olympics for Judo.”
