Ronda Rousey Will Not Fight At UFC 200 Has Asked For More Time Off

Dana White told Yahoo Sports that Ronda Rousey has asked for more time off.  And by time off she means time out of the octagon.  Because the chick is still working.

She's going to star in what will be a horrible remake of Roadhouse.  And it is the filming of this that has been pushed back and won't leave time to train for UFC 200 in July.

White, who has been critical of fighters taking too much time off in the past, was perfectly fine with Rousey's request for more time:
"The way I look at this one is, Ronda has worked her ass off for us for the last three years," White said. "She's been fighting, promoting and building the sport. If anyone deserves the time off, it's her. The night [of UFC 193] Holly said she'd do the rematch and that Ronda deserved it and everything else. So we were holding it for her if she wanted to do it. 
"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."
Which makes perfect sense.  White knows when she returns the Rousey-Holm rematch will be major bank for the UFC.
