UFC 207 Extended Preview – Ronda Rousey Returns

Having been out of competition since November of 2015, UFC 207 will mark the return of one of the sports greatest fighters, Ronda Rousey. The number of questions surrounding her return have been massive. Did the last fight break her? Can she come back as strong as before? If so, can she beat a caliber of fighter like Amanda Nunes? Even Chuck Liddell recently shared his concern for her taking this level of a fight, instead of a tuneup first. No matter what your thoughts are and what questions you may have, there is one thing almost everyone can agree on. Ronda Rousey has been one of the most dominant female fighters in the history of MMA. One can only question, but never really know, until fight night.

This great extended preview not only wraps up Ronda Rousey’s return, but also goes in depth with Amanda Nunes, Dominick Cruz and Cody Garbrandt. UFC 207 will be an incredible card to watch for the fans and will end with 2 undisputed Champions who will unquestionably reign over their respective divisions.

Chuck Liddell Goes ‘All In’ on Ronda Rousey

Chuck Liddell is an MMA icon. A living legend. His career has allowed him to analyze, judge, or critique all things MMA. Liddell had some interesting things to say about Ronda Rousey, pertaining to her upcoming title fight with Amanda Nunes. When asked what he thought about Ronda’s comeback fight against Nunes, the Iceman was very candid in his response.

It’s going to be interesting to see where her head is at and will be interesting to see what she’s going to come back with. Personally, as a coach, I would have to have liked her to have a warmup fight. Just get mentally back in the game. Amanda Nunes is a very tough, tough opponent.

When asked about who he puts his money on in the Rousey vs Nunes fight.

I don’t know where she is mentally, I haven’t talk to her. I Haven’t seen her or been around her camp, so I don’t have inside news on that. Personally, all the stuff afterwards and the way she handled it (the loss to Holly Holm) and the way things went, I’d be nervous.

Chuck’s answer translated: He just doesn’t know. Unless the subject fighter is posting videos and on social media for all to see, we have no idea how a training camp is going. Chuck is giving his opinion based on past events, not offering insight as to what WILL happen. I know we think Chuck Liddell is omnipotent and all knowing, but he’s just a guy with a sweet mohawk.

It’s easy to be critical of Ronda after her loss to Holly Holm, because there were so many instances where the always confident Rousey looked broken and human. Her own mother Ann Maria DeMars will be the first to tell you that everything makes Ronda cry.

Like Liddell said… We just don’t know. Only Ronda knows where her head is at. If the shape she’s in right now is any indication of how ready she is, then Ronda will be more than fine on December 30.
