A manager’s combat sport manager’s job is to negotiate and bring the best possible deal for his client(fighter).He should have sound knowledge about both the fight game and it’s business aspect.

On March 15,2018,Golden Boy Boxing announced the signing of boxer Ferdinand Kerobyan on Twitter,advertising him the first boxer under the management of Rousey.Her company is named as One Fight management and as per reports it won’t be related to boxing only.(via Twitter):

Rousey also posted about Kerobyan.Ferdinand ‘LuckyBoy’ Kerobyan is originally an Armenian undefeated prospect (8-0),who trains in California. Rousey has a long relationship with the Armenian community in Los Angeles,going back to her Judo days.(via Instagram):

Rousey on ‘The Ellen show’ earlier this week said,”I think it’s just as likely as me going back to another Olympics for judo.No one demanded a written resignation from me for judo and I don’t really think the same thing is necessary for fighting. I’m just doing what I enjoy and WWE is what I enjoy right now.”

Hence,Rousey has not officially retired from the UFC but she is now a full-time employees of the WWE.Rousey has made couple of appearances in WWE one at ‘WWE Royal Rumble’ and one at ‘WWE Elimination Chamber’,where they had an official contract signing for her.

Rousey is set to make her WWE in ring debut at Wrestlemania 34.
