You'd be wise to enjoy watching Ronda Rousey during her return to the Octagon at UFC 207 because, according to Rousey herself, this will be one of the final fights of her career. The 29-year-old star revealed that bit of info to Ellen DeGeneres during an interview that will air on Tuesday after she was asked by the host how much longer she plans to continue fighting. "Not that long, I'm wrapping it up. This is definitely one of my last fights," Rousey said. "The show isn't going to be around forever."


By the time UFC 207 finally goes down on December 30, Rousey will have been out of the Octagon for more than 13 months following her defeat at the hands of Holly Holm. Rousey's return fight will be against Amanda Nunes for the UFC Women's Bantamweight Championship, the same title Rousey lost to Holm during last November's beatdown. The much-anticipated fight will take place in Las Vegas.

If Rousey is able to beat Nunes, which Ellen seemed to be fairly certain of during her interview with Rousey, UFC president Dana White hinted that she may finally fight Cris Cyborg, who has seemingly been calling her out forever:
