She's back!

Ronda Rousey is going to fight again. The UFC fighter is returning to the octagon on Dec. 30, 2016, to take on Amanda Nunes for the title at UFC 207 in Las Vegas. This will be Rousey's first fight since losing to Holly Holm in November 2015, thereby tarnishing her undefeated record.

"Ronda's been training like crazy," a source tells E! News. "She's ready."

Although Rousey suffered a tough blow—both physically and mentally—many thought she would take time off to heal and head back to the octagon; however, when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show a few months later, she told the host that her reality was very different.

"Honestly, my thought...I was like, in the medical room and I was down in the corner and I was sitting in the corner like, 'What am I anymore if I'm not this?'" she told Ellen DeGeneres while in tears. "And I was literally sitting there and thinking about killing myself and that exact second. I'm like, 'I'm nothing; what do I do anymore? And no one gives a s--t about me anymore without this."

Fortunately, she had an amazing support system by her side. "I looked up and I saw my man Travis [Browne] was standing up there, and I looked up at him and I was like, I need to have his babies I need to stay alive," she added. "Really, that was it."

Rousey's shocking admission on the daytime talk show was the first time she had told anyone besides her boyfriend how she truly felt about losing to the MMA fighter. "I haven't told anybody that. I think I only told him that, but that was like what I was thinking," she admitted. "I was meant to have him when I was at my lowest for sure. I don't know if I would have made it without him."

Come December, we're sure tons of eyes will be glued to their TV screens to see how Rousey's comeback plays out.
