Ronda Rousey Undergoes Surgery This Week, Will Fight For UFC Title In Return Bout

22

UFC President Dana White announced on Thursday that Ronda Rousey underwent minor knee surgery on Wednesday and that her return, which was originally hoped to be taking place at UFC’s debut at Madison Square Garden in November, will be slightly pushed back.

Rousey, who had a successful operation this week, is expected to make her Octagon return on either the December or New Year’s Eve weekend events at the earliest, according to the UFC President.

White confirmed that whoever has the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship when Rousey is ready to make her return will be the person that “Rowdy” Ronda will fight in her first match back.

Miesha Tate is scheduled to defend the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship against Amanda Nunes at the landmark UFC 200 event on July 9, 2016 at the brand new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
