Ronda Rousey opens up on Royal Rumble appearance

Ronda Rousey won’t be making her WWE debut at Royal Rumble this weekend.

The former UFC world champion had been rumoured to be appearing at the flagship wrestling event on Sunday night.

But she has revealed she is currently filming in Colombia.

"I’m actually leaving to Colombia right now to finish shooting ‘Mile 22 and won’t be back until mid February," Rousey told TMZ .

"I haven’t signed anything; no pen to paper for me.

"I’m fortunate enough to be able to choose what I do with my time and I’m having a lot of fun doing this [filming]."

Rousey is not expected to return to mixed martial arts having lost her last two fights in the Octagon.

The 30-year-old reigned as the bantamweight champion for two years until she was knocked out by Holly Holm in 2015.

A year later she took on new champion Amanda Nunes but was again stopped, this time in the first round.

Rousey has since explored a career in Hollywood and married fellow fighter Travis Browne.
