Ronda Rousey is an intimidator, not a “Terminator.”
The former UFC champion-turned-WWE prospect bristled at a question Tuesday morning during her appearance on ESPN’s “Golic and Wingo.” And she had good reason for doing so, too, as host Mike Golic stumbled through a question about whether she’ll return to the UFC in the future or go back in time to do so.
Here’s how the awkward exchange went down, per The Sporting News’ Sarah Jane Harris.
Golic: “Let’s go back and start when you knew from the MMA when you were done there. When you knew in your mind, ‘I’m not going to fight anymore?'”
Rousey: “I never said that.”
Golic: “Ah, so there is a possibility that you could go back in time?”
Rousey: “There’s a possibility that I could go back in time? That’s your question to me?”
Golic: “Go back in time, and fight. Go back in the octagon.”
Rousey: “I do not have the ability to go back in time, no.”
Golic: “Would you fight again?”
Rousey: “I don’t know.”
Rousey will debut in WWE next month at WrestleMania 34
Rousey hasn’t fought in UFC since a 48-second TKO loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in December 2016. She never retired from the promotion but has since refused to confirm or rule out a return to the octagon.
And until she, or “Terminator” star Arnold Schwarzenegger, travels through time, we’ll just have to wonder whether she’ll ever try MMA again.
Just don’t ask her about it.
