Last Week on ESPN’s Sportscenter, Dana White appeared to promote UFC 199, but also fielded questions about Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz, and Ronda Rousey.

It was originally anticipated that Rousey would return to the Octagon in the fall, but now a minor surgery has set back her return to 2017:

“I’m hoping we’re going to get Ronda back this year,” White told ESPN’s “SportsCenter” earlier today. “She actually just had surgery (on Wednesday) on her knee. Nothing serious – just get in there, scope it and clean it out a little bit. She feels great, her spirits are great, and she’s been training. So if she fights, I’m hoping that she either fights in December. Or if not, she’d probably fight on the New Year’s show or beginning of the year or something.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
