Ronda Rousey’s time in the octagon is ticking down.

The feared UFC fighter and previous Women’s Bantamweight Champion is gearing up for her UFC 207 match against current Bantamweight title-holder Amanda Nunes, and the Dec. 30 fight will be one of her last, she said Tuesday during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

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

Rousey held a perfect 12-0 heading into the showdown with Holly Holm on Nov. 14, 2015. Holm knocked out Rousey in the second round.

As for the fight against Nunes, Rousey says she wishes it would happen sooner.

“I think it’s more of the build-up that’s more tiring than anything else. Like if we had a fight right now, I’d fight right now, and I’ll go get dinner, and I wouldn’t feel really tired about it,” she said. “It’s the weeks and weeks of build-up beforehand, and you know you’re fighting this one person, and it’s this showdown, the most important thing in your life, and millions of people are watching. It’s that build-up for weeks on end.”
