Ronda Rousey will make her long-awaited go back to the Octagon when she challenges Amanda Nunes for the UFC women’s bantamweight title at UFC 207. Rousey hasn’t fought because she dropped the belt in her lone career loss — to Holly Holm in UFC 193.
Rousey attributes are her aggression and finishing ability. “Rowdy” has never gone to the judges’ scorecards in her 13-fight pro career with 11 career successes through first-round stoppage. She’s always pushing the pace and has fluid grappling skills to establish her entry match. However, it became clear from the Holm struggle she can be defeated and stifled by an opponent with good footwork.
Nunes rarely goes to decision , as she has gone the distance just twice in her 17 expert fights. She is 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 finish her competitor. “The Lioness” has been known to gasoline outside, however, and her hyper-aggressive style means that the longer the battle goes, the worse it gets to the winner.
UFC 207 will happen on December 30.
