Ronda Rousey is back in the gym.
Whether or not she’s preparing for another fight in the UFC is unknown. In the interim, Rousey appears to be staying in shape while also teaching young men and women the fine art of judo.
However, the teacher swiftly became the student when an 11-year-old boy managed to get the upper hand on the 2010 Olympic bronze medalist.
A 5th grader identified as Jaxton Lundell got the best of Rousey with a sweep of her left leg, which caused the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion to take an awkward tumble to the mat. Lundell immediately smiled and admired his work while a man can be heard off-camera shouting, “You gotta finish! you gotta pin her!”

It was all captured and published on Rousey’s Instagram page and it’s clear the former champion is not in hiding after her loss to Amanda Nunes in December like she was when she was stopped by Holly Holm over a year ago. She has been far more visible and is clearly having fun while back in the gym.
Even though she is training, there has been speculation that Rousey may not compete for the UFC again. However, you never know when it comes to the ultra-competitive Rousey. A return is not totally out of the question. Until then, she’ll have to work on staying upright when her young students try to take her down.
