For the very first time since Ronda Rousey’s unbeaten record was badly ended in a brutal battle between her and Holly Holm about 13 months ago, the former champion Ronda Rousey has made up her mind to climb back into the octagon on Friday at UFC 207. As the first in the history of women’s UFC champion, Ronda Rousey has never occupied the role of a challenger before, well it is said that “the only thing that’s constant is change”.
This week, the previously media-friendly Ronda Rousey has shunned all press duties, leading some to question her mental readiness to take-on the current champion Amanda Nunes. Despite all the hype focused on Rousey’s rival, Brazilian Nunes’ incredible rise and great form in the past two years has given her huge confidence, and relative to that, she will not take it easy on anyone trying to take her belt from her. “I am the champion. Nobody can change this.”
