Ever since her first loss in the UFC, fans have wondered just when former golden girl Ronda Rousey will return to the octagon.

The formerly unbeaten Rousey lost her big fight with Holly Holm back in November and hasn't stepped foot in the octagon since.

A big return

Rousey has been one of the biggest names in UFC for some time now and has even appeared in Hollywood blockbusters and other sporting events.

Her return has been pushed back several times already as it appears the UFC may be saving her comeback fight.

Rousey's return will surely mean big money and high interest for the UFC so fans can be forgiven when questioning why they might be delaying it.

However when asked about just how big her return bout will be, UFC President Dana White made a very bold claim.

"I think Ronda Rousey's return will be the biggest pay-per-view we've ever done." - White on Rousey's return

This was White's response to the question of whether or not her return will be bigger than the recent pair of fights between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.

Rousey's return was once again pushed back earlier this week when White confirmed that she will not be on the card for UFC 205 in November.

It is believed that she will come back before the end of the year though - despite the fact that she hasn't agreed terms with the UFC about her return.

Before she can take up her place in the Octagon again though, There are some injury concerns to be taken care of.

"Ronda had a bunch of minor surgeries and they're healing up and when they are, I'm assuming she's going to fight,"

It will be a huge accomplishment if Rousey can outdo the two bouts between McGregor and Diaz - whose two events are expected to be in the top three all time UFC Pay-Per-View cards.
