Ronda Rousey’s been keeping a low profile since she lost UFC 193 last month, but she will be returning to the ring to fight Holly Holm once again.

In an interview with ESPN Radio on Thursday, UFC president Dana White confirmed a rematch is being scheduled between Rousey and Holm.

“I think that if we didn’t make the rematch, me and the UFC CEO should probably lose our promoter’s license,” White said.

He then added, “That’s the fight that’s going to happen. I don’t know when, but that’s the fight.”

But while both White and Holm have confirmed they want the rematch to happen, Rousey has yet to publicly comment on whether she’s willing to get back in the ring and face her rival.
