UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate thinks Ronda Rousey will only fight “one or two” more times before she retires, reports ESPN. 

“I think one if she loses and two if she wins her comeback. That's the most she'll do,” Tate said, adding that she thinks Rousey’s “mind is elsewhere.”

Tate went on to say that Rousey was already talking about retirement before her loss to Holly Holm and that Rousey’s decision to take a year off from fighting following her defeat is indicative of her desire to retire.

Holm knocked out Rousey in the second round of their November fight, handing Rousey her first loss in 13 professional contests.

Tate went on to beat Holm by submission earlier this month in the fifth round of the UFC 196 fight.
