Watch: Ronda Rousey returns for staredown with Amanda Nunes

Ronda Rousey's much-anticipated return to then Octagon took another step this morning as she squared off with Amanda Nunes ahead of UFC 205 tomorrow.

The pair won't fight until UFC 207 in December, but the promotion figured it would capitalise on the spotlight and pump up it's year-end blockbuster.

Rousey stormed onto the stage to cheers from the crowd, before giving Nunes a giant death star - storming off soon after.

It will be Rousey's first fight since her shock loss to Holly Holm nearly a year ago.

Meanwhile, Conor McGregor made the weight for his lightweight championship bout against current 155-pound titlist Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 tomorrow.

The controversial Irishman looks to become the first person in history to simultaneously hold UFC titles in two different weight classes.
