According to Dana White, Ronda Rousey isn't going to fight at UFC 200, even though that was planned to be the card that Rousey would get her rematch with Holly Holm at.

In an interview Tuesday with Yahoo! Sports, White stated that Rousey has requested extensive time off following her second-round knockout loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November.

Ronda is both busy and hesitant to get back too soon

She was expected to return to the Octagon July 9th at UFC 200 in Las Vegas, but many fans thought it wasn't going to be enough time to train. Apparently that hesitation from her fans has been mirrored by Rousey and her camp.

Besides losing to Holm and needing to recuperate, Ronda's filming of the new movie "Roadhouse" has been a big part of this delay.

Here's what White said,

"The filming of the movie got pushed back. She could do both, but the question is, should she do both? She could do both, but why should she? The filming is in a time frame where she'd finish before 200, but it would be cutting it too close."

Rousey has already said she wanted to fight Holm, but it's not happening.

"What that woman has done is above and beyond what anyone has done. I mean, it's just unbelievable what she's done in the last three years. Anything we needed, she didn't say no to anything. Said no to nothing. She even took over responsibilities somebody else was supposed to have. So when she tells me she wants more time, you know what? She's got it."

I guess we'll have to wait for that rematch.
