I really hate to brag. I really do. It’s not in my nature. I’m a humble man, but I guaranteed she’d be back sooner than later. It’s what I said a couple years ago, and it’s what I’m saying right now. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Greatest Ronda Rousey Photos On The Internet)

Nobody wants to listen. Nobody wants to believe me. Yet, I always turn out to be correct, and her imminent return is just the latest example. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

She might be recovering from an arm injury, but she’ll be back. The writing is on the wall.

The main thing up in the air at this point is when she’ll fight and who it’ll be against. I have no idea who VanZant’s likely opponent will be, but I think a fight at some point this summer is almost guaranteed to happen.

No matter who it’s against, you can guarantee I’ll be watching. She’s on the right path to get back to the top of the women’s side of the UFC.
