Dana White has shot down reports for a second time that Ronda Rousey will be returning to the UFC at UFC 300. White had previously denied the rumor after people speculated she would be making a return at the historic UFC event, saying there’s “no shot.” He did it again in a quote to TSN Sports’ Aaron Bronsteter after a report from the Daily Mail cited a “confidante” of Rousey’s as saying the WWE star is “now focusing on potentially making a run to have one last fight in the UFC and compete at UFC 300 when that presents itself sometime next year.'”

White told Bronsteter:

“Stop reading the Daily Mail, everything that they write is a crock of s**t. Ronda’s having kids! Ronda built this whole thing that’s going on with the women here, then her dream was to go to the WWE, she went there and did everything that she did there and achieved, she’s made s**tloads of money. She’s moved on with her life.”

Rousey last fought in the UFC in December of 2016. She has hinted at being done with the WWE as well for now after she lost to Shayna Baszler at SummerSlam, saying in a tweet to Baszler, “you were the reason I got into this business… Now I got no reason to stay.”
