Ronda Rousey vs Amanda Nunes Confirmed for UFC 207

“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey will challenge Amanda “The Lioness” Nunes for the Women’s Bantamweight title at UFC 207.

Rousey hasn’t competed in the octagon since she lost her title to Holly Holm at UFC 193. After almost a year away from the sport, she is bound to be rusty. Before she lost for the first time in her MMA career to Holm, Ronda was one of the most devastating and most feared fighters in the sport. However, the loss had a deep psychological effect on her and a lot of past and present fighters suggested that she may never fight again. Of course, this piece of news disproves that theory, but one can’t help but wonder if Ronda is ready to return yet.

On the other hand, Nunes was so dominant in her submission victory over Meisha Tate that she made the former champion look ordinary. The Brazilian holds a 13-4 record in MMA and is currently on a four fight winning streak. She will be eager not only to hold onto her title, but to extend that winning streak and gain a colossal feather in her cap with a win over Ronda Rousey.

What do you guys think? Is it too soon for Ronda to fight for the title? Will this be a mismatch for the former champion, or will she come back with a vengeance? Should she have had a rematch with Holm first? Let us know what you have to say.
