All fans of the UFC are in for a treat when former bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey makes her much anticipated return to the octagon against the current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, Amanda Nunes.

Ronda Rousey

After becoming the first American to win an Olympic medal in women’s judo – bronze in 2008, Rousey burst onto the pro MMA fight scene and could seemingly do no wrong early in her UFC career. Rousey (aka Rowdy, The Arm Collector) burst onto the pro MMA scene winning 12 consecutive Mixed Martial Arts fights including 6 in the UFC, nine of these wins came by way of her signature armbar submission. She became the poster girl of UFC and life seemed perfect for the American athlete.

Rousey’s career made a U-turn after a convincing loss to Holly Holm by way of a spectacular knockout. Rousey suffered from severe depression as a result and she took some time away from MMA to recover. Now she’s back to prove that she still has what it takes to be named the best bantamweight female fighter in the UFC, but it won’t be a walk in the park.

Amanda Nunes

Someone who would love to stop her in her comeback fight is the current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes.

Fighting out of Salvador, Brazil – a country known for producing great UFC fighters over the years, Nunes is known as “The Lioness of the Ring”. Nunes started training Karate from a young age and at age 16 also trained in boxing. Brazilian jiu-jitsu was what she pursued next, earning herself a black belt before competing in MMA. Following brief stings in MMA competitions Strikeforce and Invicta Fighting Championships, Nunes began her UFC career in 2013 and has risen to the top of the ranks, most recently defeating Miesha Tate at UFC 200, gaining the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship.

My Free UFC 207 Betting Tips

Rousey has spent a long time out of the octagon and all fight fans know her strengths, on the flip-side so do her opponents. Her weaknesses were on full display against Holly Holm, a fight in which Rousey was dominated from beginning to end. I don’t think that Rousey has the mental toughness to win this one, her last loss would have put a lot of doubt in her mind. I believe Nunes should be starting as short favourite to win.

My tip: Nunes by knockout. Nunes has proven she has KO power and I think she’ll find an opening in Rousey’s defenses within the first few rounds.
