Ronda Rousey set to return

Ronda Rousey has put together quite the impressive resume -- both in and out of the octagon. Prior to her defeat at the hands of Holly Holm, Rousey was on top of the MMA world, seemingly untouchable. However, the second round knock-out she suffered courtesy of Holm's kick to the head in November of 2015 also knocked her off of the summit she occupied all by herself, and the world saw a Ronda Rousey that was shaken up following the loss. In the aftermath of the defeat, Rousey withdrew from the spotlight a bit as fellow athletes like Kobe Bryant and current UFC powerhouse Connor McGregor reached out to Rousey and gave her words of encouragement.

In the interim, Connor McGregor has certainly taken up the mantle at UFC and has quickly become the company's main draw. McGregor's recent victory against Alvarez in UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden shattered numerous records all across the board, so, it's safe to say that McGregor has done his part to keep the cogs in the UFC machine moving in Ronda Rousey's absence.

Rousey vs. Nunes

Ronda Rousey will make her return against the No.1 ranked Amanda Nunes on December 30th at the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a chance to regain the bantamweight belt. Rousey is currently ranked as the No. 2 fighter by USA Today Sports/MMA Junkie, so, a win against Amanda Nunes would not only be a great comeback for Rousey after her year-long hiatus, but it would also be a chance to reclaim the No.1 spot that was hers prior to her loss to Holly Holm -- and a chance to reclaim the title belt to boot.

Ronda Rousey will be pitting her 12-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC fight record against Amanda Nunes' 13-4 MMA, 6-1 UFC. Prior to her loss to Holm, Rousey had won her first 12 fights consecutively, and in convincing fashion. Each of her bouts ended in stoppage, with 11 of her 12 matches stopped in the first round.

There is certainly a lot of hype leading up to this match, but the question remains: which Ronda Rousey will the world see at UFC 207?

Will she step back into her old form and re-assert her dominance, or, will the remnants of her loss to Holly Holm come back to haunt her? If the video below is anything to go by, "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey looks more than ready:
