Helwani said he will have an update on this soon.
The TMZ story regarding Strikeforce folding and Ronda Rousey joining the UFC and that more information would be available this coming week was confirmed by MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani.
The final Strikeforce show will be 1/12 in Oklahoma City.
She needs to fight Cyborg. After that, she needs to fight 135 men or retire. There's nothing else in Women's MMA.
All at the same time? That hardly seems fair.
Good for Ronda, but I'm more interested in Strikeforce finally folding for good and having Melendez, Mousasi, Cormier, Jacare and maybe even Barnett in the UFC.
Well played sir.
Normally not really into manly bitches.... But something about this chick is sexy. I'd pee in her butt.
What happened to that Carano bitch? She was a good looking large meaty slit.
How well does she take a punch?
I think she retired after losing a fight.
She lost to Cyborg and went into fulltime acting.
Meltzer said there is something to the rumor about Roussey & another female coaching TUF, but as of now they are leaning to having guys as contestants
Dana says his stance on women’s fighting changed because of Ronda Rousey since seeing her fight, but more importantly meeting her. She’s a beautiful girl, but on the inside she’s a Diaz brother, who is mean, nasty, and a real fighter. He’d like to see her debut next Saturday, but that’s not going to happen so they’ll see what happens. Dana says the main issue of a Rousey-Cyborg fight isn’t the weight, it’s that Cyborg doesn’t want to fight Rousey. He is trying out UFC women’s division at bantamweight and feels it is stacked enough to create some serious opposition for Ronda as the first official UFC Bantamweight champion.
Rumor is she might headline UFC 157 with Machida vs Hendo as the Co ME.
That's a good start, but the UFC is going to need a lot more than that if they think fans will order a fight headline by women.
Way too early for that IMO
Ronda headlining a PPV card?
I completely agree.
The only way a women's fight should be on a PPV card is if it's for the belt and is the co ME to another title fight.
Like I said, RR headling a Fox card is smarter. It would be their hifghest rating & then ...... maybe she can headline a PPV
She's a bit heavier than Bantamweight, Cyborg beefed up (roided up) to a higher weight class to fight her. Cyborg kicked her ass, and then after that there wasn't much left for Carano to do besides fight whatever cans they dug up. Women's MMA is still a fledgling thing, and most of the decent fighters are Bantamweight. Rousey's got true star power, but UFC's gonna have a hard time finding real competition for her. She's an armbreaking machine.
Are you sure?
When she fought Akano (last fight before Carano) she was overweight by 6 pounds (150).
Even before that, most of her fights were around 140lbs+.
If anything, the reason she failed her last drug test was because she used a banned substance used mostly to cut weight.
Cyborg is a beast, I don't blame Ronda for going down to 135 where she can be the bully.
During the UFC on FOX 5 press conference, Ronda was handed the UFC belt.
She will fight and headline UFC 157 vs Liz Carmouche.
I've never seen her fight, and would like to very much.
Dumb dumb dumb
This fight should be on FOX & draw a HUGE rating & make her first PPV headliner vs Cyborg bc that can draw
Second UFC women's fight set: Miesha Tate meets Cat Zingano at TUF 17 Finale
Interesting, I thought the UFC would wait until after the Rousey/Carmoche fight before they made another WMMA fight.
With Cyborg asking for her release, I'm assuming the UFC is hoping for Rousey and Tate II.
