UFC 207 Promo With Ronda Rousey, Vitor Belfort On His Next Fight, Daniel Cormier's Return Date

- The first video promo for UFC 207 has been released, highlighting Ronda Rousey's return. The former UFC female bantamweight champion is fighting for the first time since losing the belt to Holly Holm last year, as she'll challenge Amanda Nunes.

At UFC 200, Nunes won the belt vs. Miesha Tate. The card takes place December 30 from inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

- Who would Vitor Belfort like to fight next? The answers might just surprise you. The former UFC champion discussed his potential next fights with the Brazilian show Giro Combate.

"Nick Diaz is a good fight," Belfort said (thanks to MMAFighting.com for transcribing). "I would like this fight. He's a guy with good boxing and good ground game, so it will be a good challenge. I know the UFC has sat down to do big fights. I never had anything personal against Anderson. Quite the opposite. That fight with me changed the history of MMA. I know how important that fight was. But it's a fight fans absolutely wanna see.

"I would love to fight (Bisping). I'd give him another head kick. I know he doesn't have a fight, doesn't want to fight anyone. He's picking a rematch, right? He chose Dan Henderson. He chose Dan Henderson to fight, so I'm offering myself. He doesn't want to fight 'Jacare' (Souza), so let's do this rematch. The UFC is doing a lot of rematches, and he has this fight stuck (in his throat). He tried to avenge that loss to Dan Henderson and only wins robbed decisions. I will put an end to this. I won't let it go to the judges. I'll give him another head kick."

Belfort suffered a loss to Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza earlier this year.

- UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has options when it comes to his recovery from a groin injury. However, "DC" has yet to make a decision. He was forced out of a title defense vs. Anthony Johnson at UFC 206 next month.

"I don't know, man," Cormier said (thanks to MMA Fighting for the quotes). "It's a weird deal, because I always try not to have surgery. That's kind of my thing. I do whatever I can to not go under the knife. I've got some decisions to make."

Cormier has made just one actual title defense since winning the vacant belt from Johnson, defeating Alexander Gustafsson. He was scheduled to meet Jon Jones twice, but the bout fell apart. He could be be back in the first quarter of 2017.
