Earlier this week Dana White announced that Ronda Rousey will return at UFC 207 on December 30th 2016. It will be Ronda Rousey challenging Amanda Nunes for the women’s bantamweight championship. The event will mark more than a year since she lost the championship to Holly Hollm at UFC 193.

Rousey’s return to PPV for the UFC will close out a very profitable year for the company. Not only did the UFC break PPV records in 2016, the company was purchased for $4 billion.


Some (namely Juliana Pena) have been critical of Rousey receiving an immediate title rematch, but it really only makes sense that she would. Before the Holly Holm fight, Rousey was as dominant champion as there gets, if she doesn’t get an immediate rematch I don’t know who does.

Rousey vs Nunes is not all that will go down December 30th at UFC 207 however, here are 5 crazy predictions of what could happen…

Cain Velasquez vs Antonio Silva

5. Cain Velasquez Avenges Another Loss

Rumours are that the UFC is working on a deal to finally have the Fabricio Werdum vs. Cain Velasquez rematch at UFC 207. Whether or not the fight actually happens is anyone’s guess however.

The first time these two fought, Werdum took the heavyweight title from Cain at UFC 188. The fight was held in Mexico City at elevation, and the conditions may have put Cain off his game. On a night where many fighters were seen vomiting backstage (or in the cage), Cain’s ability to adapt to the increased elevation is often given as the explanation for his sub-standard performance against Werdum.

While it had been rumoured that Cain or Werdum would be named as Miocic’s next challenger, it looks like the champ will be taking a bit of a layoff and allowing the two top competitors to duke it out first.

Should this fight happen at UFC 207, expect Cain to avenge his previous loss.
