Former UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey has expressed interest in training to become a pro wrestler, according to Fightful.com, who claim to have gained information from unnamed sources close to WWE.

Rousey has apparently started training with current WWE superstar (and trainer) Brian Kendrick, who currently competes on 205 Live. Her entry into the industry was apparently a big talking point backstage at the tapings of the recent Mae Young Classic (which airs on the WWE Network later this month).

MMA fans will be very familiar with Rousey, one of the biggest names in the world of combat sports. She is a known wrestling fan, and memorably appeared at WrestleMania 31 in a segment alongside The Rock, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon. At the time, this led to wild speculation that Rousey would be booked for a match at a subsequent ‘Mania – although nothing has come of it since.

She has also dabbled in acting, appearing in The Expendables 3 and Furious 7.

Rousey last fought at UFC 207 in December 2016, losing to Amanda Nunes in a matter of seconds. She has since teased a ‘big announcement’ on her official website, but it’s unclear whether this is linked to her rumoured venture into wrestling.
