Ronda is rumored to be fighting for the belt at UFC 207 on December 30th.
That’d be over a year and one month since her last fight, a knockout loss to Holly Holm in November 2015. That’d be the longest layoff of her career.
A lot has changed since that time. Holly lost 2 times since that fight and lost the belt to Miesha Tate, and then Miesha lost the belt to Amanda Nunes.
Valentina Shevchenko and Julianna Pena have been campaigning for a title shot. Pena won the Ultimate Fighter 18 and has won 4 straight fights in the UFC.
You can make an argument against Ronda getting a title shot after a loss. But UFC have done the same thing in the past when Nick Diaz got a title shot after a loss
as well as when Chael Sonnen lost against Anderson Silva but then got a title shot against Jon Jones in a higher weight class.
Dana White still has interest in doing Ronda Rousey vs Cris Cyborg.
But the UFC does not plan to have a 145 pound women’s division any time soon.
Cyborg is cutting down to 140 pounds to fight Lina Lansberg on September 24th. She told Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour she has to lose 24 pounds by the weigh in on Friday.
She’s been taking birth control pills as suggested by her nutritionist to help lose weight.

Al Iaquinta was pulled off the card from his fight with Thiago Alves because Al wanted more money. Iaquinta is in the same position as Georges St-Pierre.
Both of them signed contracts before the Reebok deal came into place, and have lost money with sponsors, so they want to be reimbursed for that loss.
Jim Miller now replaces Iaquinta to fight Alves on the card.
Floyd Mayweather says he tried to make the boxing match with Conor McGregor happen but couldn’t, so he’s moving on.
Anthony Pettis would like to fight Michael Johnson or Jose Aldo next.
Pettis is currently ranked at #6 at featherweight after beating Charles Oliveira.
#11 ranked light-heavyweight Corey Anderson suggests fighting #10 ranked Nikita Krylov.
