Ronda Rousey will make her long-awaited return to the Octagon when she challenges Amanda Nunes to the UFC women’s bantamweight title at UFC 207. Rousey has not fought since she dropped the belt — in her lone career reduction — to Holly Holm at UFC 193.
Rousey attributes are finishing skill and her aggression. “Rowdy” hasn’t once gone to the judges’ scorecards in her 13-fight professional career with 11 career successes through first-round stoppage. She’s constantly pushing the speed and has fluid grappling skills to set up her entry match. But, it became clear in the Holm struggle that she can be defeated and stifled by an opponent with great footwork.
Nunes rarely goes to decision either, as she’s gone the distance just twice in her 17 pro fights. She’s technically solid on the toes with huge power in her hands. More frequently than not, she utilizes her wrestling ability to take the battle to the mat and use vicious ground and pound to end her opponent. “The Lioness” has been known to gas out, however, along with her hyper-aggressive style implies the longer the battle goes, the worse it gets for the champion.
UFC 207 will take place on December 30 in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
