Ronda Rousey favourite for triumphant return in UFC 207

Ronda Rousey is set to return to the octagon and will make her comeback bout in a title fight on December 30th, more than a year since her last fight.

The former champion will take on current Bantamweight titleholder Amanda Nunes in Las Vegas and despite the lengthy lay off is favourite to win. Rousey is 2/5 with SkyBet while Nunes is 2/1 to retain her title.

The fight will be the first for Rousey since she lost her Bantamweight title to Holly Holm in November last year. Rousey has never been the underdog for a fight since signing with the UFC in 2012 and that looks set to continue ahead of UFC 207.

Nunes had previously made it clear she wanted to fight Rousey, who has stayed out of the spotlight, bar a few TV appearances, since her defeat to Holm.
