While appearing on ESPN earlier today to promote UFC 199, UFC President Dana White said Ronda Rousey will be out of action for a few months after she underwent knee surgery yesterday.
White said the procedure to clean up Rousey’s knee was ‘nothing serious’, but also said they were hoping to get the former UFC Bantamweight Champion back this year, possibly hinting at her return being delayed until 2017.
In regards to who Rousey could face when she does return, White says Rousey will be in line for a title fight:
“Whoever has the belt is who Ronda Rousey will fight. Injuries happen, somebody falls out and somebody else slides in. I’m not saying Holly Holm couldn’t be the champion by the time Ronda comes back. Whoever holds that belt when Ronda is ready.”
