Ronda Rousey is back in front of the camera

On Friday morning, TMZ tracked down the former UFC champion in Los Angeles for her first on camera interview since suffering her heart breaking loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193.

While the whole exchange only lasted a little more than one minute, “Rowdy” did reveal her desire to rematch Holm on the highly anticipated UFC 200.

“It’s what I want,” said Rousey. “It’s up to the UFC and it’s up to her camp. So, we’ll see what happens.”

This should be good news for UFC President Dana White, who had all but confirmed the promotion’s intent on book the matchup during the July event.

Initially it was believed the former champion would need more time to recover from her loss to Holm since it would  “three to six months” before Rousey could eat an apple, let alone train.

As a result, Holm’s camp called for a matchup with former title contender Miesha Tate in the mean time.

However, White would quickly put an end to those talks.
