Ronda Rousey is off to greener pastures with the WWE, but much of her past still sticks with her.

During a sit-down interview with ESPN after her stunning debut Sunday night at the Royal Rumble, Rousey discussed all things in her life, including her long-term plan with WWE. When the topic turned to Rousey’s losses to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes over the last two fights in her UFC tenure, the former Bantamweight champion couldn’t bring herself to discuss the traumatic events.

Rousey was knocked out by Holm in November 2015 that may go down as the biggest upset in UFC history. The former champ returned only to suffer a TKO loss to Amanda Nunes in December 2016.

Rousey seems genuinely happy after moving on from the UFC to the WWE. She refused to say she was retired in the interview though, leaving the door open for a return one day to the Octagon. At 30 years old, on the heels of two devastating losses though, she may very well be done.
