Christmas is over and we’re all back to work (Boo!). Speaking of getting back to work, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey returns to the cage for the first time Friday since getting knocked unconscious by Holly Holm to lose her title.
For the most part, Rousey has been radio silent since getting humiliated by Holm 13 months ago, and the UFC is allowing her to keep that trend by skipping all of this week’s media obligations that everyone else has to participate in ahead of UFC 207.
Remember when Nick Diaz and Conor McGregor were pulled from massive fights for missing pre-fight press conferences? Favoritism, much???
Instead of being bitter about Rousey’s golden girl treatment, bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes (pictured) appears to relishing in the added exposure. Perhaps she is resentful and intends on taking it out on Rousey instead of the fans, which would be the most productive way to attack the unfairness.
T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts UFC 207.
