The much-anticipated rematch between Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm will reportedly go down on July 9 for UFC 200 at a newly constructed 20,000-seat arena in Las Vegas.

In a few brief words, UFC President Dana White all but guaranteed as much.

Speaking with the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday, White clarified who will be Holm's next opponent, saying,

It's Rousey.

Holm's trainer, Lenny Fresquez, expressed his belief the current number two contender, Miesha Tate, should get the next shot at the new UFC women's bantamweight champion, but it appears that's not going to be the case.

And while the fight may not even be official yet, that hasn't stopped Twitter from already picking sides.

Some folks think Holly Holm is getting disrespected by being forced to fight Rousey again.

Others don't even see the point of a rematch.

A lot of fans think Miesha Tate should be Holm's next opponent.

Some even think it's a little fishy to have a rematch so soon after the initial battle.

Rousey's loyal fans think she's going to get the better of Holm this time around.

But, a few folks are concerned Rousey won't be prepared for a rematch by July.

If the fight happens, this guy has some advice for how Rousey should handle herself this time.

I bet she will be a little more defensive this time — Kevin M Langston (@LangstonKevin) December 10, 2015

If Rousey loses, some are speculating she'll call it quits on her UFC career.

Others aren't even willing to entertain the idea of another loss for Rousey.

But, most UFC fans are just happy they're going to get a rematch between the two top competitors.
