As opposing coaches on the Ultimate Fighter Season 18, it was already known that Ronda Rousey would square off with Miesha Tate after the show broadcast for Rousey's bantamweight title. Now we know a date and location:

The UFC's annual year-end pay-per-view event will have at least one title fight.

On Monday UFC President Dana White said the rematch between women's bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and challenger Miesha Tate (13-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) will be part of the card.

Additional sources told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the event will take place Dec. 28, in Las Vegas, as UFC 168.

"Ronda and Miesha is just – leading up to that fight, that's going to be nasty," White said.

If Ronda's last fight pulled close to 500k, what could a rivalry with Miesha Tate do? In America, she's as mainstream as it gets. Phone Post 3.0

This is a title fight, it has to be main-event. Unless they add another title fight. But seeing how well Ronda did last time it's very unlikely they won't have her headline.

But one fight shouldn't make a card, we can shit on it once we see the line-up but until then can't really say much about it.

If Bendo can beat Grant and come out unscathed, Henderson v. Pettis II really should headline this card.

LETMEBANGBRO - Haters. This is a great main event. Build a decent card around it and 750k+ easy.

A great main event that we all know who the winner will be in what round and by what way

Terrible fight for a main event on NYE. If it's a headliner, should be on FX or something.

But this only gives Tate a little over 5 months to learn how to defend an armbar !

I will only buy this as a main event if they are fully naked and mud wrestling. Otherwise, ridiculous

Cain vs Bigfoot 2
Jones vs Sonnen
Anderson vs Bonner
GSP vs Diaz
Bendo vs Melendez
Aldo vs Edgar
Cruz vs ???

...and this.

Other than Melendez (preceded by Edgar getting a rematch after a loss), it can be argued that none of these contenders deserved their spot. Not liking the new business model. Phone Post 3.0

In defense of the Silva fight that wasn't a title fight and it was short notice...not many guys are going to step up on short notice vs Anderson...hell some don't even want to fight him on a full camp

They need to throw GSP on this card. GSP + Rousey on the same card = PPV & Gate records being shattered

There's our issue which is why we need another title fight.

Bendo/Grant vs Pettis
AS vs Vitor II
Bones vs Machida/Glover
Aldo vs Lamas
Aldo vs Bendo/Grant
Cruz vs Barao

All possibilities. I don't see the Vitor one happening because i think they'd do that in Brazil. Jones is kind of a quick turnaround. I like Aldo moving up to LW for a title shot and a legit superfight the best.

I'd consider Dominic Cruz white and They're 6 American champs that's not too shabby Phone Post 3.0
