For all of the fans who had any doubt – drum roll please……as we hear Michael Buffer say “Let’s Get Ready to Rumble!!!” Here it is fans. What you have all been waiting for: Ronda Rousey vs Holly Holm II. You go girl!!
In a story from Us Weekly:
Round 2 after TKO. UFC president Dana White confirmed on Thursday, Dec. 3, that Ronda Rousey will get a rematch against defending bantamweight titleholder Holly Holm, who defeated her at UFC 193 last month.
White told the Mike & Mike radio show on Thursday that there would be another match between the ladies, though he offered up no definitive timeline or location. “I think that if we didn’t make the rematch, me and Lorenzo should probably lose our promoters’ license,” White said of UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta.“Yeah, that fight’s going to happen. I don’t know when, but that’s the fight that will happen.”
He explained why a rematch was of importance to the league. “Ronda Rousey has gone undefeated, taken the sport to another level, and was beating the best women in the world in 14 seconds or 30 seconds, so she deserves a rematch.”
In fact, White has already had the discussion with Rousey’s opponent, Holm. “Holly agrees she deserves a rematch,” the UFC exec said. “And we’ll figure it out.”

I think the key word is “figure”. The promoters would be out of their minds NOT to have a rematch. Let’s face it, Ronda Rousey is the highest paid female on the UFC roster. We know she makes at least six figures and that doesn’t even include Reebok or profits from pay-per-view. Not to mention, Holly Holm took in about $330,000 for the 6 minute fight or $1100/second against Ronda Rousey. Not to shabby. I think they will ALL “figure” it out and do just fine!
