Ronda Rousey Confirms Next Fight Will Be UFC 207 Vs. Amanda Nunes

Ronda Rousey is coming back to the octagon.

The former champion will make her much-anticipated return at UFC 207, where she’ll fight Amanda Nunes in a women’s bantamweight title fight Dec. 30 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Rousey confirmed the news Wednesday on her Twitter.

Nunes won the bantamweight title against Miesha Tate at UFC 200 in July. Tate won it by defeating Holly Holm at UFC 196 in March. Holm won the title by handing Rousey her first career loss at UFC 193 last November. That was Rousey’s most recent fight.
