With that being said, Ronda Rousey has been announced for Wrestling REVOLVER’s “UNREAL” event on November 16th in Los Angeles, where her next match will take place.

While her match hasn’t been announced yet, she is expected to team up with Marina Shafir again.

Rousey tweeted the following about this:

“This is gonna be fun, hope to see ya there – All profits from ticket sales going directly to Lahaina wildfire survivors via Venmo Mutual Aid.”

• UFC recently announced that they will hold their first ever event in Saudi Arabia in March 2024.

According to the Wrestling Observer and ESPN, word going on is that Vince McMahon played a big role in helping UFC land a big money deal with Saudi Arabia, as the UFC-Saudi Arabia announcement was made after the WWE-UFC merger to form TKO.

In 2018, Vince struck a 10-year big money deal with Saudi Arabia, where WWE is contracted to hold two big premium live events in the Kingdom every year, where they get paid around $50 million per event, which is more than what WWE makes from WrestleMania.

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, UFC CEO Dana White called Vince McMahon an incredible business partner, and noted that McMahon has already added value to the UFC brand.
