Influencer-Boxer Elle Brooke wants a showdown with Ronda Rousey in WWE.
Brooke has only recently begun competing in combat sports, yet she is unbeaten in three fights. The 25-year-old has two unanimous decisions and one finish under her belt, most recently defeating Aleksandra Daniel in the quarterfinals of the Kingpyn competition.
Rousey announced her retirement from MMA in 2016 after losses to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes. She has now evolved into a full-fledged WWE superstar, winning the 2022 Royal Rumble and becoming a multiple-time Smackdown and Raw women's champion.
Ronda Rousey is widely regarded as one of the greatest female fighters in the history of mixed martial arts (MMA).
She began her career in Strikeforce, where she won the bantamweight championship in 2012. Rousey then moved to the UFC, where she became the first-ever UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion. She defended her title six times, all by armbar submission, before losing to Holly Holm in 2015. Rousey retired from MMA in 2016 with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses
"I was never a religious WWE fan but I knew what it was obviously and I’d absolutely love to do it. I’d love to fight Ronda Rousey one day. I’m not at her level right now but that’s something to work towards – that’s if she’d ever fight me,” Brooke told in a recent interview (H/T Sportskeeda).
She went on to further add that she might not be famous enough to share the squared circle with Ronda Rousey.
"She’d probably want millions and I’m probably not famous enough to do that. But the sky’s the limit! I watch a lot of wrestling clips on my TikTok feed and I think it’s so impressive what they can do. It doesn’t look too aggressive, they’re not trying to kill each other like in the UFC! That’s not for me. I don’t fancy an elbow to the face,” she added.
