On Friday, Dec. 30, the UFC hosted UFC 207: Nunes vs. Rousey from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In the night’s main event, women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes looked to defend her belt for the first time against former titleholder Ronda Rousey. The Brazilian Nunes captured the belt in July with a first-round finish of Miesha Tate at UFC 200. Rousey, meanwhile, competed for the first time since being brutally knocked out by Holly Holm at UFC 193. The loss marked the first loss of Rousey’s career.

The co-main event also featured gold on the line as bantamweight king Dominick Cruz aimed to continue his reign against undefeated knockout artist Cody Garbrandt.

The 10-fight event kicked off Friday at 7:30 p.m. ET with one fight streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts followed at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
