For the record, appearing in movies and living the Hollywood lifestyle hold great levels of appeal compared to getting inside an octagon shaped cage with an opponent dedicated to doing serious bodily harm, so we are not in that group of sideline sitters who has disdainful barbs to hurl at Ronda Rousey.
So, she took a year off. Rousey is back at will make her return at the same venue that hosted her last effort, Melbourne.
It will be UFC 207 this time, a little beyond a year since she was stunned by Holly Holm at UVC 193.
This time, she will be attempting to get past reigning bantamweight champion Amada Nunes.
If we were to be given the option of appearing in films, such as Furious 7 and Entourage, and also had an appearance in a remake of the Patrick Swayze classic from the 1980s, Road House, lined up, or the opportunity to let Amanda Nunes perform painful mayhem upon us, we would take the movie option every time.
Of course, UFC fans and UFC president Dana White want nothing more for the last day of 2016 than to see Rousey win and start the speculation about a rematch with Holm.
