Most people’s retirement plans don’t include beating someone to a bloody pulp — well, unless you’re Ronda Rousey.
During a post-workout interview Monday, the 28-year-old said she wants to end her career by “beating the crap” out of defamed UFC fighter Cris “Cyborg” Justino.
“Once I feel like women’s MMA is really self-sustaining and something I can see lasting for decades without me, then I’ll be able to step away,” Rousey told reporters. “I have this idea in my mind that my final fight would be just beating the crap out of Cris Cyborg.”
It’s pretty clear that a Rousey-Justino fight would be one for the ages.
Justino, though, competes at 145 pounds — which currently isn’t a women’s weight class — and for now the UFC and Rousey will not organize the fight unless “Cyborg” can cut down to 135 pounds.
While Rousey’s retirement plans seem tempting, we’re just going to stick with a nice celebratory dinner when our working days are over.
