Rousey Returns for MSG Appearance with Nunes

NEW YORK

Ronda Rousey still knows how to make an entrance. Moments after the conclusion of the UFC 205 weigh-ins at Madison Square Garden on Friday, the 15,000 fans in attendance got a little something extra when the combatants in the main event of UFC 207 were introduced for a staredown following a video feature previewing their December 30 bout.
 


Rousey, making her first appearance on a stage like this since her November 2015 loss to Holly Holm, looked like she already had her game face on as she locked eyes with the UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Amanda Nunes. Nunes met that glare, eager to defend her title at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas against the MMA superstar who held the belt for three years.

“She's the fight I asked for,” Nunes said while Rousey left the stage. “I trained for this girl my whole career in the UFC and now I have a chance to defend my belt against her. It's going to be amazing.”
