UFC President Dana White went on Sportscenter and said that former UFC champion Ronda Rousey recently had minor knee surgery and it might keep her out for the rest of the year.

“I’m hoping we’re going to get Ronda back this year. She actually just had surgery (on Wednesday) on her knee. Nothing serious, just get in there, scope it and clean it out a little bit. She feels great, her spirits are great, and she’s been training. So if she fights, I’m hoping that she either fights in December. Or if not, she’d probably fight on the New Year’s show or beginning of the year or something.”

White also said that Rousey's next fight will be for the UFC championship no matter who the champion is at that time.
