When Ronda Rousey finally makes her return to the UFC, who is she going to fight?! Rousey lost her bantamweight title to Holly Holm back in November 2015. Then, Holm lost the belt to Miesha Tate back in March. Tate then agreed to a fight with Amanda Nunes at UFC 200 but spent a lot of her time trash talking Rousey in the weeks leading up to the match. And on Saturday night, Nunes destroyed Tate in the first round of their UFC 200 fight to become the new women's bantamweight champion. She won the match by submission with a rear naked chokehold, which you can see here:

Nunes is the first female UFC champion from Brazil. She is also reportedly the first openly gay UFC champion in the history of the organization. Her victory over Tate shocked a lot of MMA fans:

Following the match, Tate told her fans she plans on coming back and fighting again. But when she does, it’s unlikely that she’ll do it in a match against Rousey. And at this point, it’s unclear which fighter Rousey could end up in the Octagon with next. What a crazy last year it’s been for the UFC women’s division.
