Ronda Rousey Signs With UFC, Strikeforce Dead After Last Event In January


The Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion is done fighting for Strikeforce and is set to make her UFC debut in the near future, TMZ reported Thursday night. TMZ claims that the recently announced Jan. 12 Strikeforce card in Oklahoma City will be the promotion’s last. MMAFighting.com has also confirmed the story to be true.


UFC president Dana White was very hesitant in the past to even consider forming a women’s division in the UFC, but the emergence of Rousey has apparently changed his mind.

Dana White’s stance has been predicated on a belief that there aren’t enough high-level female fighters to build deep enough divisions to warrant having them in the UFC. But it has been Rousey who has, as he has admitted, forced him to take another look.

No official word has come yet from the UFC or Strikeforce on Rousey’s signing yet.
