Rousey stays stoic ahead of Nunes bout at UFC 207 weigh-in


Ronda Rousey's all-business approach to her return to the UFC octagon did not change at Thursday's weigh-in.

The dethroned champion remained expressionless and stayed on the scale for the bare minimum amount of time before striding backstage without a word after she made weight at 135 pounds.

Rousey's bout with the Brazilian Amanda Nunes headlines UFC 207 on Friday in Las Vegas. Thirteen months on from the knockout loss to Holly Holm that cost Rousey (12-1) her UFC women's bantamweight belt, the 29-year-old has made a point of keeping a low profile leading up to this fight.

Once among UFC's more marketable commodities, Rousey has maintained a media blackout - a move UFC president Dana White said will not become the norm for the organisation on Wednesday.

Nunes (13-4), who took the title from Miesha Tate at UFC 200, also made weight at 135.
