“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey makes her long-awaited return tonight at UFC 207 in front of a sold out crowd at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Rousey has been away from the sport for more than a year as she removed herself from the public eye after suffering the first loss of her professional mixed martial arts career. Now, Rousey is ready to reclaim the belt she held for over two years.
