Ronda Rousey says her ban­tamweight ti­tle shot against Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 will be one of her fi­nal mixed mar­tial arts bouts.

Rousey spoke about her fight Tues­day dur­ing an ap­pear­ance on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show.

The 29-year-old Olympic judo medal­ist hasn’t fought since Novem­ber 2015, when she lost her ti­tle to Holly Holm.

When asked how much longer she will con­tinue fight­ing, Rousey replied: “Not that long.”

“I’m wrap­ping it up,” Rousey added. “This is def­i­nitely one of my last fights, so every­one bet­ter watch, be­cause the show isn’t go­ing to be around for­ever.”

Rousey (12-1) said she has been train­ing twice a day since early Au­gust for her come­back bout. She will face Nunes (13-4) at T-Mo­bile Arena in Las Ve­gas on Dec. 30.
