Ronda Rousey’s much-anticipated return will happen Friday night at UFC 207, when she faces women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes for her old title at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.
After more than a year away from fighting, Ronda Rousey returned to UFC 207 on Friday to fight Amanda Nunes. Last year Ronda lost her title after she lost to Holly Holm at UFC 193. This year, she lost again.
In just under 50 seconds Amanda Nunes swung her fist at Ronda Rousey and the fight was over, it was a brutal, shocking, and ugly event. It is hard to imagine how Ronda must feel after loosing twice, will she even want to continue this career any longer?

The 28-year-old Brazilian has the skills to keep winning and the confidence necessary to lead the division in what appears to be the post-Rousey era.
This is Nunes’ fifth victory in a row since taking the title off Miesha Tate in July at UFC 200.
Her record now reads 14-4-0 while Rousey has suffered her second career defeat in 14 fights.
