Rousey, 29, hasn’t stepped foot inside the Octagon since UFC 193 in November 2015, when she shockingly lost her title to Holly Holm.
This is the match Nunes wants.
“If they ask me who I want to fight, I’m going to say I want to fight Ronda. I’m not running from anyone, I’m the champion and I can choose who I’m going to fight,” Nunes said, via SB Nation. “I will choose what’s best for me and Ronda would be ‘the’ main fight, that’s why it has to be against her, it has to be with Ronda.”
We can’t wait to see Rousey back in action.
