December 30th sees UFC 207. And the return of a certain Ronda Rousey. She’s been out of the ring for some time and is currently preparing herelf for her return. But the early signs don’t look good.

“I think he’s a terrible coach. I think he hit the lottery when Ronda walked in there. She was winning before she ever met him. She probably won 99 percent of the judo matches she ever fought in.”
