After nearly a year away from the sport, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has finally committed to a return, as UFC president Dana White announced earlier this week that she will be taking on reigning champion Amanda Nunes in the main event of December 30’s UFC 207 from Las Vegas, Nevada.
Prior to her brutal UFC 193 knockout loss to Holly Holm, Rousey was considered to be the very best female fighter on the planet, and she may still be, but there are also some question marks surrounding her return.
