Unbeaten UFC fighter Ronda Rousey has said that she would love to become the WWE Divas champion once her career inside the Octagon is over

WWE executive vice president Triple H has already responded to the statement, saying that Rousey is "always welcome".

Rousey, who fights Holly Holm at UFC 193 next month, has previously revealed her love of the WWE, and appeared alongside The Rock at this year's WrestleMania, taking part in a segment that also featured Triple H and his wife Stephanie McMahon Levesque.

The 28-year-old Rousey was speaking about what else she wants to achieve, and said winning boxing, jiu-jitsu and WWE titles are in her goals. Rousey won bronze at the 2008 Beijing Olympics

"What I would love to do, I got an Olympic medal, I would want to retire from MMA as one of the greatest of all time, I would love to have the chance to be the boxing world champion, and I would love to have the chance to be a jiu-jitsu world champion. I’d love to have the chance to be the Divas world champion and just be the best of everything at one point," she said.

"How that is possible to do, I’m going to have to figure that out but I am trying to figure that out. I think if anybody’s capable, I think that I am,” Rousey said. “I think it’s just a matter of prioritizing and timing and figuring out when I can do which, when. I’m figuring it out. I’d love to, but it’s a process.”

Upon hearing this, Triple H wrote:

UFC 193 takes place on 14 November in Melbourne, Australia.
