Approximately 11 months after Ronda Rousey’s devastating loss to Holly Holm, the UFC has announced that the star will return to action on December 30th, and will face new bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes.

The bout will headline UFC 207, which will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rousey (12-1) hasn’t fought now since her aforementioned defeat to Holm, which took place at UFC 193 last November. Initially, the former champ planned to return to the cage this past summer, but Rousey elected to take more time off.

Nunes (13-4), meanwhile, took out Rousey’s rival Miesha Tate in July to become the new 135 champ. The “Lioness” has won four straight.
