However, Nunes has now apologised for these comments and others she made in the aftermath of the fight, claiming that they were made in the heat of the moment.
White said Rousey was in good spirits after recent conversations, but he had the sense she did not want to return to competition. "I think she's going to ride off in the sunset and start living her life outside of fighting". She was the only fighter to hold the UFC women's bantamweight championship for three years. Her match against Nunes was her first more than a year after losing her belt to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015.
White said on the UFC Unfiltered podcast that he had spoken to Rousey recently and did not get the indication that she wanted to fight again.
Top MMA star Ronda Rousey is unlikely to fight again in the octagon, according to UFC president Dana White.
Pena, who suffered her first UFC loss to number one ranked Valentina Shevchenko at UFC on Fox 23 on 28 January has slammed Rousey for her actions and says it was one of the reasons she can't take the beating during her fights.
Nunes stormed Rousey from the first bell, beating her senseless with a hailstorm of power punches before referee Herb Dean was forced to call a halt to the contest just 48 seconds into the first round.
"It's not that I even think it was an invincible thing, it's that she's so competitive that her career and record meant everything to her", White said. And then once she lost, she started to say to herself, 'What the (expletive) am I doing? This is my whole life?
She's got a budding acting resume and a deal with Reebok, plus an autobiography that's being made into a film.
Not long after, Nunes sent an Instagram post that rubbed salt in Rousey's fresh wounds to gloat over her triumph.
