Ronda Rousey says she will face Holly Holm sometime in 2016

Former UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey said her highly anticipated rematch against Holly Holm will happen sometime in 2016.

Rousey, 28, has been relatively quiet since a shocking knockout loss to Holm at UFC 193 in November. Although she told ESPN shortly after the loss that she wanted a rematch, no date has been set and UFC president Dana White recently told Yahoo! Sports that Rousey would not be able to appear at UFC 200 on July 9 in Las Vegas.

In an interview with TMZ, Rousey, who attended Sunday's UFC event in Boston, said a rematch against Holm is still "all I want to do."

"It's sometime later in the year," Rousey said. "They haven't told me an exact date or location. It's a decision we're all going to make together. I'm kind of waiting to hear from them on what options they're going to give me."

Holm (10-0), a former world champion boxer, has since booked her first UFC title defense against Miesha Tate (17-5) at UFC 197 on March 5 in Las Vegas. Her victory against Rousey via second-round knockout stands as the biggest upset in title fight history, according to betting odds.

While Rousey appears headed for the longest break of her MMA career, she will remain in the public eye. She is scheduled to host NBC's "Saturday Night Live" on Jan. 23. She is also scheduled to film a remake of "Road House" later this year.

Last week, it was revealed Universal Pictures had purchased a project involving Rousey and Tina Fey titled "Do Nothing Bitches," a phrase Rousey made famous in 2015.
