Ronda Rousey’s winning streak came to a screeching halt in November 2015 when her unbeaten run as bantamweight champ was ended by Holly Holm, who captured the title via knockout.
And now Rousey is preparing for a comeback, with UFC president Dana White telling Fox Sports 1 show “The Herd” that she’ll be re-entering the Octagon later this year in a match against current champ Amanda Nunes of Brazil.
Rousey vs. Nunes will be the main event at UFC 207, set to take place in Las Vegas on Dec. 20, reports BBC News.
Rousey had “a bad loss and lost her title but she’s still Ronda Rousey at the end of the day,” said White (via TMZ), adding that Rousey is in a good place psychologically and is focused on winning back her title.
The longest-reigning UFC champion in the history of women’s mixed martial arts (she held the title from November 2012 until November 2015), Rousey confirmed her comeback on Twitter, debuting the hashtag “FearTheReturn.”
