Germaine de Randamie’s Manager Says Retirement Rumor Isn’t True
By FCF Staff
The manager of Germaine de Randamie is denying that the UFC featherweight champ is thinking about retiring.
De Randamie has yet to be booked for her next bout, after she defeated Holly Holm in February to become the promotion’s inaugural, women’s 145 champ. Not long after the fight, de Randamie said she wanted to rematch Holm. The UFC 208 bout saw de Randamie land late punches in the fight on two occasions, and the Dutch fighter wanted to prove that her win was legitimate. But, de Randamie also reported that a nagging hand injury might require surgery.
Well, more recently, Holm posted on Facebook that she’s heard a rumor de Randamie “wants to retire”. But, de Randamie’s manager, Brian Butler – Au, denied that’s the case while speaking to MMA Junkie.
“She’s got things going on at home and stuff going on at police academy,” Butler-Au said. “The UFC’s aware of it, and we are working through it. That’s all I can say at the moment.”
The 33 year-old de Randamie also work as a police officer in the Netherlands.
