Only the good retire young…

Ronda Rousey was on top of the MMA world before her shocking knockout loss to Holly Holm nearly a year ago, but she's slowly but surely getting back to her old self.

The 29-year-old athlete is already scheduled to return to the sport in a title match against reigning champ Amanda Nunes on December 30 — Just don't call it a comeback…

Because it may actually be more of a retirement party!

Ronda stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday where she spoke openly up about eventually leaving mixed martial arts, saying:

"I'm wrapping it up. This is definitely one of my last fights. Everyone better watch because the show isn't going to be around forever."

Luckily for Ronda, it sounds like she is gonna go out on top — she's apparently been doing two-a-days for two straight months!

But if things somehow don't go her way, there's always Entourage 2

She's ready to take back her title.

It's been nearly a year since Holly Holm upset the entire sports world by handing Ronda Rousey her first and only loss… but the mixed martial artist is already poised for a comeback.

That's because UFC head Dana White just announced that Ronda will be taking on reigning champ Amanda Nunes this December to see who's really the best that Bantamweight has to offer!

As part of UFC 207, Ronda and Amanda will be fighting it out in Las Vegas on Friday, December 30 — meaning only one of them will ring in the new year with that fancy belt by their side!

Dana shared the MMA update on FOX Sports 1 Wednesday afternoon, simply saying:

"[She had a] bad loss and lost her title… but she's still Ronda Rousey at the end of the day."

While we're happy to hear the 29-year-old is healthy… we're a little conflicted about who we're rooting for.

Amanda just so happens to be the first openly gay athlete to win a UFC Championship, after all!

Guess Ronda Rousey had better things to do?

The MMA fighter wasn't that interested in watching Holly Holm — the one woman to defeat her — defend the Bantamweight title against Miesha Tate at UFC 196 on Saturday night!

That's because instead of watching the fight, Rousey decided she was going to do something a little more low key… like watch professional wrestling at an American Legion Hall in El Lay!

Rousey was spotted in the crowd in Reseda, California, taking in a night of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's All-Star Weekend 12 — but from what it sounds like, she WAS paying attention to the fight on her phone!

According to reports, right around the time that Tate was choking out Holm in the fifth round for a surprise victory, photos of Rousey checking her phone and smiling surfaced!!!

Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey always keeps it real.

Which is why on Thursday night the MMA superstar took to Instagram to profusely apologize for posting a photo from her Tonight Show appearance that she didn't realize had been Photoshopped.

Earlier in the day she shared a snap of her sitting on Jimmy Fallon's couch as an effort to thank her glam squad for her styling for the interview.
