Ronda Rousey’s return to MMA this year may not be off the table just yet. As UFC president, Dana White, told Esporte Espetacular in an exclusive interview, there’s a chance “Rowdy” could actually still fight soon, and for the belt, too.
“Yes, there’s a big chance that Ronda Rousey will fight Amanda Nunes and I’m very confident that Ronda will probably fight before the end of the year,” White said.
And while that’s a good sign, we still have no words from Ronda Rousey and it’s not known how much she has been training after her KO loss to Holly Holm back in November 2015. Meanwhile, Nunes has been on a tear. The champ has put together a four-fight winning streak, with victories over the likes of Shayna Baszler, Sara McMann, Valentina Shevchenko and Miesha Tate, that last one to win the title.
Ever since her rear-naked choke of Tate, Amanda Nunes has been saying she would like to welcome Rousey back in the Octagon. But, nothing has been declared official as of yet.
