Who will headline UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York?

According to MMA insider Dave Meltzer, it will not be former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

Meltzer recently spoke with Submission Radio where he delivered the following news about a possible “Rowdy” comeback:

“I talked to one of her friends a couple of weeks ago,” said Meltzer, “and the impression that I got – you know, we don’t usually talk Ronda Rousey business – but I just go, what’s your thoughts? Is Ronda gonna be ready to fight at the garden? And they said, no, probably early 2017. So that was the impression I was given two weeks ago.”

After reeling off eleven stoppage victories in a row to begin her mixed martial arts career, Rousey was handed a devastating head-kick KO loss from Holly Holm this past November at UFC 193.
