Earlier this week, reports suggested former UCF star Ronda Rousey was considering leaving the WWE in 2019 to start a family. The report, from wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer said there's a "very good chance" Rousey will wrap up her WWE career after Wrestlemania in April.

Not long after Meltzer's report, TMZ revealed Rousey is under contract with the WWE through April 2021 and that she doesn't plan on leaving any time soon.

Rather than continue to listen to reports about her own future, Rousey spoke with ESPN's Ramona Shelburne to set the record straight. She had a very strong comment when asked about whether or not she plans to leave the WWE to start a family.

"I honestly don't know why [anyone] feels [they 're] an authority to speak on plans for my uterus. It's my vagina, my life, keep the speculations to yourself. Leave me and my reproductive organs alone," Rousey said.

It's a strong quote, but Rousey isn't new to making headlines with her actions or words. After dominating the UFC for years, Rousey took over the WWE and could start looking for the next challenge in life.

Whether or not that challenge is raising a family is up to her - as she stated.
