Is Ronda Rousey finally coming back to the octagon?

Reebok Women just released a teaser commercial of sorts, and it certainly seems that way.

The commercial begins with the former bantamweight champ in a ballgown with a plunging neckline stepping off a movie set and into a locket room. Tight shots cut to her peeling off the make-up and hair extensions and getting into fight clothes and hand wraps.

Rousey's voice can be heard throughout saying," Here's the thing about being perfect... perfect never gets truly tested... perfect never gets to silence it's critics... perfect never gets a shot at redemption... So yeah, I'm fine not being perfect."

The commercial ends with the hashtag "never perfect" and subsequent tweet announces a chance to win a trip to UFC 205. (Could a fight announcement be soon to follow)

Rousey's return to the octagon has been in question after her shocking loss to Holly Holm in November 2015. Rousey went into obscurity following her first ever UFC loss and turned her focus to exploring acting roles. Many critics have said she will never return.

While there is no fight announcement yet, this is the first step back towards the octagon since her loss almost a year ago.
