When former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey lost her belt to Holly Holm at UFC 193, few thought we'd ever see her in the Octagon again. She went into hiding, refusing interviews and TV appearances, and later admitted she had contemplated suicide. So, it's no surprise that UFC president Dana White isn't sure about her future with the promotion if she loses again.

“I think if Ronda wins, we will see her again,” White said to ESPN (h/t MMAFighting) “If she loses, I don’t know.”

Unfortunately no one can ask what her intentions are — win or lose, because she has a full media blackout this entire week.

“She’s very competitive, so if she loses I’ll have to see how this thing plays out, but her legacy?” White said. “I mean, she held the title, she was the most dominant female ever. And if you look at since she lost, every time there’s been a fight the belt has been handed over. So, on Friday night she has the opportunity to come back, get her belt back and cement her legacy.”

Rousey has already voiced her desire to retire soon to pursue other opportunities, so it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility, no matter the outcome.

We'll just have to wait until Friday to find out.
