Ronda Rousey has arrived in Las Vegas for her UFC 209 women’s bantamweight title fight against Amanda Nunes Friday night. Rousey lost the title last November to Holly Holm and has taken almost a year off to take some time to regroup before stepping foot back in the octagon.
The UFC released a short video via Twitter or Rousey in Las Vegas signing posters for the event.

Typically the UFC sells the posters at the show to fans in the venue. Prices vary and usually start around $100 but go up to $1,000 depending on who is fighting on the card. Marquee names like Conor McGregor or Dan Henderson cost more than shows headlined by Dustin Poirier or Neil Magny.
It will be interesting to see how Rousey responds to the first loss of her career. Her opponent, Amanda Nunes is a great striker but has run out of gas in later rounds. If “Rowdy” can play it conservatively and drag Nunes into the later rounds the former champ has a very good shot at getting her belt back.
Nunes won the title from Miesha Tate at UFC 200 in July. The fight with Rousey will be her first title defense.
