Jonathan Coachman Says That WWE Will Never Bring in Ronda Rousey

"I think that she has a lot of people maybe around her who don't necessarily have Ronda's best interests at heart", Harrison said in a TMZ interview Wednesday.

The firebrand Rousey went down in a flurry of punches from Nunes, a similar fashion to her first loss at the fists of Holly Holm over a year ago.

Rousey's current suspension will last until February 14 and she won't be able to undergo any contact until January 30 due to the injuries she suffered in her loss to Nunes.

While the UFC will ultimately decide who Nunes will face in her next fight, she has set really high standards for women in the UFC. "I think it's important for Ronda to show her fans how great she truly is by displaying her courage and giving it another try". Rousey's striking has always been a weak spot for the Olympic judo medallist, and she was utterly unable to cope with Nunes' punching ability, showing little growth in the past year from the weaknesses exposed by Holm. It was without a doubt, Rousey's worse performance of her career. With McGregor taking time off as he awaits the birth of his child, and Rousey's future unknown, the UFC will most likely be without the services of their two biggest draws for at least the first several months of 2017.

With the cloud of invincibility no longer hanging above Rousey's head, the famed MMA nutritionist said she should just focus on healing up rather than contemplate what her next move will be.

Nevertheless, a familiar Rousey foe - who she has yet to fight. and probably won't now - Cris Cyborg (17-1, 1 NC) now steps back into spotlight. Back when I started, and you had The Rock or Stone Cold, Undertaker and Triple H-all these stars.

Rousey took on the highly regarded Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015. I really just hope she's OK.

By the way, I fully appreciate that many of you probably don't know your MMA from your HSA.

The 40-year-old trainer and weight cut coach also shut down notions claiming "Rowdy" was unprepared and not in shape coming into the fight.

Except that she deserves credit for setting herself up with millions to spend while licking her wounds in ignominious retirement....

She was then asked if she thinks Rousey is-gasp-overrated. She did not want that.
