Coach Tarverdyan says a Rousey fight with reigning UFC bantamweight champion Nunes has been discussed for Dec. 30 in Las Vegas, but that no decision has been made yet as Rousey works her way back into form following a minor knee surgery this summer. He also confirms that Rousey has been training for the past month in preparation for a comeback but does not promise it would be before the end of the year.
There have been talks about her coming back, but we haven’t made a final decision yet. There’s a chance she fights to get her belt back this year, but nothing is set yet. If we do make a comeback this year, we will. If not we will make it next year. We want to thank all our fans for being patient. When she does come back, we promise the best Ronda Rousey that anyone has ever seen.
