FIRST THINGS FIRST...
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!?!
USADA just reported the news that former women's bantamweight Champion, "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey (12-1) has just had a visit from the big guys! That means she is potentially 6 months out from her next fight.
Dana White already stated that she was going to come back around to the UFC, but she will not be fighting at UFC 205 in New York. This is making me believe many different things.
Current Women's bantamweight Champion, Amanda "Lioness" Nûnes (13-4) hasn't announced her opponent yet. Even from that, I believe Julianna "The Venezuelan Vixen" Penà (9-2) is well-deserving of that title shot right now even over Ronda. There can be many options like CRIS CYBORG (16-1) ?!?!?
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.
And if she wins her fight on September 24th against Lina Lansberg (6-1) in Brazil in a catchweight bout at 140lbs, that will be a step in the right direction for her to get this fight.
As for Ronda, It seems like she won't even be able to fight until next year, which could mean Ronda could be a part of the biggest event of 2017 starting out.
That is perfect timing for Cyborg in my eyes.
Even former welterweight Champion, George St-Pierre got tested by the USADA that could set him out to fight in his hometown of Ontario in December.
The fans would want nothing more than to see "Rowdy" back inside the cage. Do I feel she will be the same inside the cage? I really don't. It will be interesting to see how these fights get sorted out.
