It’s official, Ronda Rousey will finally return to the Octagon on Dec. 30, when she will attempt to reclaim her title against current UFC women’s batumweight champ Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.
Set to take place in Los Angeles in a PPV event at T-Mobile Arena, Rousey will fight for the first time since Nov. 2015, when she was upset by Holly Holm at UFC 193.
“Ronda Rousey has been the biggest, baddest female fighter on the planet since we got into women’s fighting,” UFC president Dana White said, on the “The Herd” this week. “Ronda had a bad loss, obviously, lost her title — she’s still Ronda Rousey at the end of the day.”
Prior to her loss, Rousey was undefeated and had recorded six consecutive title defenses, five of which ended in the first round. Since then, she’s kept a low profile.
The new champ, Amanda Nunes (13-4), won the title by submitting Miesha Tate at UFC 200 in July. She’s currently on a four-fight winning streak.
