Already in the co-main event of Saturday night's UFC 175, Rousey may have a chance to step in and be the headlining act at UFC 176, too.

So as you get ready for Ultimate Fight Night 46 (or read this afterward, whatever), let's jump right into another edition of Fightweets.
@benulm: Cowboy has to be up for fighter of the year at the halfway point you agree?

Ronda Rousey is back in action, and this time the champion takes on No. 2-ranked contender Alexis Davis in the UFC 175 co-main event.
Rousey continued her undefeated career by destroying fellow Olympic medalist Sara McMann in just 66 seconds at UFC 170. She returns for her second trip to the Octagon in 2014 for her fourth title defense.
