Ronda Rousey has shocked the UFC world by admitting that her upcoming fight at UFC 207 against Amanda Nuneswill be one of her last.

The 29-year-old is deemed one of the biggest names in the sport, with president Dana White claiming that she is in fact the biggest star in the octagon, despite the antics of Conor McGregor, who probably has a different opinion.

Rousey has been absent from UFC for over a year now, ever since her shock defeat to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015, and despite some fighters not being happy about it, she will compete next month for the female bantamweight title.

However, Rousey fans, and UFC fans for that matter, may have to sit back and enjoy the female fighter next month because it could well be one of her last ever fights.

Rousey has recently been a guest on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", which airs later today (November 1), but a snippet of the interview has already been released, and the fighter has confirmed that she's already thinking about retirement from the sport.

The 29-year-old has had a glittering career in the octagon and is one of many that have helped grow the sport to the worldwide phenomenon that it is today.

However, due to her age, she is seriously considering calling it time on her illustrious career.

When asked about her future, and what's in store for her after UFC 207, she said: "Not that long, I'm wrapping it up.

"This is definitely one of my last fights. Everyone better watch. The show isn't going to be around forever."

Rousey currently has a UFC record of 12-1, spanning back from her debut in 2011, which was a win over Ediane Gomes via submission, to the shock defeat to Holm last year.

Although it's not officially been confirmed, maybe it's time to start thinking about a UFC world without the great Ronda Rousey.
