Ronda Rousey will fight Miesha Tate for the title next

Ronda Rousey will still receive a title shot when she returns to the UFC later this year, but instead of facing Holly Holm, she will now take on Miesha Tatefor a third time.

Rousey went on to lose the belt to Holm when she was knocked out last November and Tate's victory this weekend has left their planned rematch in tatters.

UFC president Dana White confirmed that he spoke to Rousey via text message on Saturday night afterTate choked out Holm in the fifth round at UFC 196 to win the women's bantamweight championship.

"I think that Ronda now will fight Miesha Tate for the title," White said when speaking to ESPN after UFC 196 concluded."That's what's going to happen. That's what I said before this fight even happened. Whoever wins tonight will fight Ronda for the title.

White went on to say that Rousey did not watch the fight but upon hearing the result told him, 'looks like I've got to get back to work'.

The former champion is, however, not due to return to the Octagon until the autumn due to a busy filming schedule.

As of now, neither "Road House" or "Mile 22" have actually scheduled dates to begin principle photography, which means there is a chance Rousey could return sooner than the fall when she was originally expected to come back.

Now that Tate is holding the UFC title, their roles are reversed and if Rousey wants to reclaim the gold she's going to have to go through her to get it back.
