Rousey Resurfaces to Purchase Firearm?

Former UFC women’s star Ronda Rousey has been largely in ninja mode for over a year. Prior to her loss to Holly Holm, Rousey had been subject to by far the highest media demands of any figure in MMA history, to the point that in 2015 she was #3 for Google’s top trending people.

#4 was Donald Trump.

She changed her life dramatically after that. In 2016 she was in a near media blackout. ‘Not At All Rowdy’ appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Conan,” was the subject of an in-depth interview with ESPN the Magazine, and played the role of Gallus Mag on Drunk History. She did one faceoff for the fight with new champion Amanda Nunes, with no speaking.

Then she fought in public, lost, and the media blackout returned. There was an official statement provided by her team to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, a post on Instagram, and she was photographed when some lowlife vandalized her home with unreadable graffiti.

Perhaps concerned about the vandalism, TMZ reports that Rousey has applied for a concealed carry permit. She and her boyfriend, UFC heavyweight Travis Browne went to The Range 702 gun store in Las Vegas, where she took a special course required to get a concealed carry permit. The permit reportedly takes around 90 days to complete. The permitting process wisely requires some shooting at the range, which witnesses say Rousey did with the single stack Glock 43 9mm pistol.

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.
