With the holidays starting to slip into the rear-view mirror, there’s one more night of gifts for fight fans that is on its way. December 30th marks the long-awaited return of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey as she’s set to take on current champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.
During her reign, Ronda became associated with time. 66 seconds. 16 seconds. 14 seconds. 34 seconds. Fight after fight her dominance was on display, having disposed of 4 opponents in less than two-minutes combined over the course of 18 months. It was unlike anything we have seen in sports.
But a new time is associate with Rousey – 421. That’s how many days it will have been between walks to the octagon when she enters the cage this Friday. For Rousey, her whole career has shown that she has the will of a warrior. Now on the other side of a UFC title match, that will turns to hope. And for Rousey, it’s a hope that can’t be crushed.
