It's hard to imagine Rousey not showing up.

We don't yet know how Rousey will be in the ring, but stars like Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and Shayna Baszler of NXT have shown that the transition can be made with amazing results. Rousey made shockwaves in the world of UFC, becoming an innovator in the company as it began welcoming women's martial artists, and becoming a superstar as one of their most dominant champions. Like I said, she was born to kick ass and throw people around. The match began in 1988, and for all of the thirty previous Rumbles only men had gotten to do the match.
