The big question that emerged in the weeks and months since UFC phenom Ronda Rousey was soundly put on her backside by Holly Holm at UFC 193 in Melbourne, in one of the most instantly iconic moments the sport of MMA has ever seen, was when, exactly, would Rousey step into the octagon again?
“Holly Holm will fight Miesha Tate on March 5. The winner of that will fight Ronda, probably in November.”
Holm and Tate face off at UFC 196 for the Women’s Bantamweight title in the sub-main event of the card, prior to the UFC Lightweight Championship match between reigning champ Rafael dos Anjos and UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor.
“She’s a badass. She’ll be back.”
UFC 196 takes place on March 5th (US time) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
