Next up for Rousey is Bethe Correia at UFC 190 on August 1 in Rio de Janeiro. “I want to be done with school so I can devote all my time to being a great father and National Football League quarterback”.
“It just doesn’t look fun no more”, Tyson said with a smile. I apologize because I didn’t know.
