Ronda Rousey Announces First Fight Since Being Defeated By Holly Holm

Ronda Rousey hasn’t stepped inside the octagon since her stunning upset loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015, losing the women’s bantamweight title in the process. But her absence is about to end.

UFC president Dana White announced today on Twitter that Rousey will take on current UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nuñes at UFC 207 in Las Vegas on Dec. 30.

Nuñes won the belt by submitting then-champion Miesha Tate in the first round during their matchup at UFC 200 in July. Rousey comes into the fight with a 12-1 record, with four consecutive first-round wins before losing to Holm. Nuñes boasts a 13-4 record, with defeats during her UFC career to Rousey victims Cat Zingano and Alexis Davis.
