Ever since Holly Holm shocked the world by knocking out Ronda Rousey at UFC193, Dana White has been teasing that a dream rematch would definitely be on the cards.
It had been highly speculated that the rematch would happen in July at UFC200 on a card that is also likely to include Conor McGregor but now Dana White has come out and said the highly anticipated rematch probably won't happen so soon.
According to White, Rousey has asked for more time off in order to complete filming for the Road House remake she's set to star in. Yes the remake to the Patrick Swayze starring cult classic Road House.
“The filming of the movie got pushed back,” White said. “She could do both, but the question is, should she do both? She could do both, but why should she? The filming is in a time frame where she’d finish before 200, but it would be cutting it too close.”
It seems Rousey has learned her lesson about having too much on her plate and will not be entertaining fighting Holm again until she has the time to fully prepare. The only issue for Dana White of course is that Holm is going to have to defend her title at least once if not twice before Rousey returns to the sport. By that time she could potentially lose her title, in which case the highly anticipated rematch won't have the same allure.
