Ronda Rousey has finally given her view on a potential rematch with Holly Holm and it is an emphatic answer from the former UFC Women's Bantamweight champion.

Holm knocked out Rousey with a vicious head kick at UFC 193 and the previously undefeated fighter was rushed to hospital as a precaution.

The 28-year-old's record now stands at 12-1 and she is determined to get revenge on the undefeated Holm, no matter what it takes.

In an excerpt released from Rousey's interview with ESPN, as per Fox, the Olympic bronze medalist said: "I need to come back. I need to beat this chick.

"Who knows if I'm going to pop my teeth out or break my jaw or rip my lip open again. I have to (expletive) do it. It doesn't matter. I have to do it."

Having looked back on the fight, Rousey admits she was caught with a punch just 30 seconds into the opening round that dazed and confused her.

"It might be three to six months before I can eat an apple, let alone take an impact."

It was clear to see the former champion never recovered from that punch as he was manhandled throughout the rest of the round before a wicked kick to the head ended the fight 59 seconds into round two.

But it seems the highest paid woman in the UFC is hellbent on regaining her title. 

Dana White, president of the Ultimate Fighting Champion, has confirmed Rousey will receive an immediate rematch with Holm when she is ready to return to the octagon.

However, in another extract from the interview, Rousey admitted the defeat made her "really f****** sad" and she revealed the extent of the damage left by the kick.

Rousey said: "It might be three to six months before I can eat an apple, let alone take an impact."

And following those comments, Miesha Tate, who has twice lost to Rousey, took to Facebook to say she is "ready to go" and face Holm.
