Ronda Rousey is back in fighting action or at least she will be December, when she make her return to the Octagon to fight Amanda Nunes for the women’s bantamweight title at UFC 207 in Las Vegas.

The announcement comes from UFC President Dana White, who made the announcement on “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd on FS1.

The fight, is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 30 and will headline UFC’s final pay-per-view event of 2016.

Rousey has not fought since losing via TKO to Holly Holm in November 2015. Since that loss, she has largely disappeared from the public spotlight outside of a few appearances on shows like “Ellen,” where she admitted to having suicidal thoughts just moments after losing the fight to Holm last year.

However, after taking some time to herself and getting healthy in every way, she is ready to get back into the sport she loves.

“The thing is Ronda Rousey has been the biggest, baddest female fighter on the planet now since we got into women’s fighting,” White said. “Ronda had a bad loss, obviously, and lost her title, but she’s still Ronda Rousey at the end of the day. When you talk about bad matchups for Ronda, it’s just about Ronda coming back. Everybody wins or loses. It happens.”

White also noted that if Rousey is able to get her title back at UFC 207, the megafight against Cris Cyborg will “definitely happen.”
