Ronda Rousey (12-1) will make her long-awaited return to the Octagon on December 30.
She faces a stiff test as she will be fighting champion Amanda Nunes (13-4) for the UFC Women‘s Bantamweight title.
UFC President Dana White made the announcement Wednesday, October 12, during an appearance on The Herd with Colin Cowherd.
“Ronda Rousey has been the biggest, baddest female fighter on the planet since (the UFC) got into to women’s fighting,” White said.
“Ronda had a bad loss, obviously and lost her title, but she’s still Ronda Rousey at the end of the day.”
The upcoming fight will be Ronda‘s first since being brutally knocked out by Holly Holm at UFC 193 on November 15, 2015.
If Rousey defeats Nunes it could set up a possible fight between her and the woman many believe is the best female fighter in the world, Cris “Cyborg” Justino (17-1-1), at a catch weight.
Cyborg has been calling Rousey out for years. White told Cowherd that the fight will finally happen if Rousey wins in December.
