It has almost been a year since we have last seen Ronda Rousey inside the octagon; it has officially been announced that she will return this December!
Rousey last stepped foot in the octagon on November 14, 2015 at UFC 193, where she lost the Bantaweight Championship to challenger Holly Holm. Rousey would not challenge Holm to a rematch due to scheduling conflicts. Holm would soon lose the title to Miesha Tate at UFC 196.
Rousey has had a pretty quiet 2016 so far as she has not made many public appearances. Her notable outings include hosting SNL, having knee surgery, opening up about having suicidal thoughts, signing a 3 movie deal with Lifetime, and more.
Rousey makes her return to the octagon more than one year after her last fight on December 30, 2016 at UFC 207 against Amanda Nunes for the World Bantaweight Championship.
Watch the full interview where UFC President Dana White tells Colin Cowherd of Fox Sports One about the return of Ronda Rousey below.
