It seems that Ronda Rousey might be making her MMA return later this year.

The former, long-time women's bantamweight champion has been offered a fight with current champion, Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in Las Vegas, Nevada on Dec. 30, according to FOX Sports.

The negotiations are ongoing, with no updates on their progress (or lack thereof).

Nunes said on a recent Instagram post that news regarding her next fight was coming soon.

The 28-year-old champion is currently on a four-fight win streak. Nunes' last performance was against then-champion, Miesha Tate at UFC 200 in July. There, Nunes seized bantamweight gold from Tate by submiting her with a rear-naked choke in round one. Nunes is now 13-4 as a professional fighter, and 6-1 in the UFC. Her only loss was to top contender, Cat Zingano at UFC 178 back in 2014.

Meanwhile, Rousey hasn't competed since November 2015 when she was knocked out in devastating fashion by Holly Holm in the main event of UFC 193, in Australia. Prior to that, Rousey was undefeated and considered one of the most dominant champions in UFC history. The Olympian was on a 12-fight win streak with victories over opponents Miesha Tate, Bethe Correia, Cat Zingano, Sara McMann and more.

As of now, the UFC has made no official confirmation regarding Rousey's return to action.
