Ronda Rousey is under one month away from stepping back into the octagon for the first time since her brutal defeat to Holly Holm just over one year ago.

Rowdy will take on the current UFC women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes on December 30 in a bid to regain her crown which has been passed around a bit in her absence.

Holm took the strap in Melbourne last November with a savage second-round knockout of Rousey, only to lose it in her very first title defence against long-time Rousey rival, Miesha Tate.

Tate would then fall to Nunes via submission in the first round. Tate has since retired after another loss at UFC 205, but the showdown between Nunes and Rousey is set for the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The UFC have now released a trailer for Rousey's return and the near-two minute package tells the 29-year-old's story of redemption extremely well.

Nunes is somewhat of an afterthought in the clip and some might view that as a tad disrespectful to the champion.

Rousey is still a massive draw in the UFC and is, arguably, the most recognisable female competitor in the world today. It makes sense that the company would throw its marketing machine and promotional tools behind their former champion, but there is some bad blood to explore already.

The two had a staredown at the UFC 205 weigh-in and Rousey proceeded to storm off stage, reportedly needing to be consoled backstage after what was meant to be a silent staredown, turned into Nunes getting interviewed in front of Rousey.

Many fans believe that Rousey should be facing Holm in a comeback rematch before moving onto the title, but that match will surely take place next if she reclaims her belt.
