While it remains to be seen when and who Ronda Rousey will fight again, the UFC Bantamweight Champion has relayed one date that is peaking her interest.

Rousey–who is recovering from knee surgery–appeared on the latest edition of “UFC Tonight” Thursday, and had this to say about when she would like to fight again.

“I’d love to be on the New Year’s card again,” Rousey said on the FOX Sports  1 show. “Everything that’s happened with Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, I’d love to share a card with them.”

“This is my fourth knee surgery, and my third knee scope,” the champion noted about her recent procedure. “It’s going to be scary when I come back because I’ve been operating on one leg for several years now, and when I’m 100 percent, I feel sorry for people. No, I don’t ever feel sorry for people.”

Rousey is coming off a 16 second, KO win over Alexis Davis in July.

Recently the UFC announced that Jones-Cormier has been pushed to January 3rd, as a result of Jones incurring a knee injury.
