Former UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is "probably going to retire" from mixed martial arts, according to organisation president Dana White.

Speaking to ESPN reporter Brett Okamoto, White explained that while "Rowdy" remained a part of the UFC's anti-doping programme, she has no fight plans and will likely step away from the sport before returning:

"I think people realize she's probably going to retire."

"That's not because she had to, that's the way Ronda Rousey is built. Ronda Rousey is super competitive and doesn't like to lose. I know she's been criticized for that by a lot of people, but that's just who she is and the way she is.

"And the way she is, is what made everybody get behind her. It's what blew up the women's divisions. Now she's going to move on to the next chapter of her life, get married and have kids, do that thing. It's not sad, it's the way she wanted it."
