LAS VEGAS - Is Ronda Rousey pondering a break from mixed martial arts?

The UFC women's bantamweight champion didn't come right out and say so on Monday. But it also doesn't take much reading between the lines to realize she's going to have some choices to make.

Rousey defends her title against undefeated Cat Zingano on Feb. 28 in the co-main event of UFC 184 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

After that, Rousey said she has "decisions" to make.

"After Feb. 28, I have a lot of important decisions to make," Rousey said at Monday's press conference.

Later Monday, when Rousey did a scrum interview with print reporters, the champ wouldn't give specifics, but made it clear she's juggling several potential outside opportunities.

"I've got everything getting thrown my way right now," Rousey said. "I'm in a fortuitous situation where I have so many options, that I could take very many different paths right now. And which path I choose will very much depend on the manner in which I beat Cat Zingano."
