MMA Bucket List Part 2 - UFC 193 - Rousey vs Holm

Since then neither girl has won a fight. Ronda obviously has an excuse as she hasn't fought since. Holly was up 38-37 on all three judges scorecards going into the fifth round at UFC 196 against Miesha Tate, but then was rear naked choked in an incredible come from behind victory for Tate. Holm then lost a 49-46 unanimous decision to Valentina Shevchenko in July where she never really got going.

For Holm it's been a slippery slope inside the octagon, but she has a chance to get back to prominence in February at the Barclays Center against Germaine de Randamie. For Rousey, it was a slippery slope outside as she came to terms with her loss, but that took a while. Openly talking about contemplating suicide.

Ronda is one of those crazy competitors who is so so determined to win that she honestly doesn't know how to handle losing. That's obviously a blessing and a curse. A blessing as it turns you into an incredible competitor. A curse in that she lost the plot when she finally lost.

Next Friday, she makes her return. Amanda Nunes now holds the belt, and looks to be the first bantamweight to successfully defend the belt since August 2015 when Rousey beat Bethe Correia. It's been a bit of a hot potato since then. Will that change at UFC 207? We'll find out next week!

For now, I'm Jody Jamieson, and I'll be bringing you full coverage of UFC 207 live on Friday December 30th. Nunes-Rousey. Cruz-Garbrandt for the men's bantamweight title. Velasquez-Werdum in a heavyweight rematch. Some good stuff to look forward to! Keep an eye on ByTheMinute.co for all the coverage!
