Ronda Rousey has been keeping a low profile since her loss at UFC 207.

What was supposed to be the former women’s bantamweight champion’s glorious return to the octagon proved to be something of a disaster when she was brutally TKO’d by Amanda Nunes after just 48 seconds of the first round in 207’s main event at the end of December.

Speculation has been rife since regarding the 29-year-old’s next move, when she will return to competitive action or indeed if she might walk away from the sport altogether in the face of two successive bad defeats.

She has been uncharacteristically quiet on her social media channels since December 30th, but has finally broken her digital silence with an Instagram post on Monday.

The quote, taken from a speech given by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling to Harvard in 2008 in relation to her own struggles, appears to indicate where Rousey is at mentally right now – demoralised after such a public humiliation.

It gives no clear indication as to what is in the pipeline for her, but if the post can be taken at face value it may a hint at be a much quicker turnaround between fights than after her loss to Holly Holm in November 2015, which saw her take over a year out to absorb the defeat.

That being said, all speculation will remain as such until Rousey makes an announcement one way or the other.
