Ronda Rousey, UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champ

Rousey’s octagon debut date is unknown, according to White, though it will be on a UFC pay-per-view card. And unless a champion of greater weight is on the card, Rousey will headline.

As for the first opponent to meet the women’s MMA superstar, White was unsure. But he seemed cold on the possibility of a fight between Rousey and ex-Strikeforce featherweight champ Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos, who has sparred with Rousey in the press.

“Our matchmakers have talked to their camp, and she doesn’t seem too excited to fight Ronda,” White said.

“We’re bringing in the 135-pound division,” White said. “I’m trying this whole women’s thing out. Obviously, Ronda is the champ. I think Ronda has the potential to be a big star. She’s already getting media that we’ve never even gotten before, and she’s never even set foot in the UFC yet. That’s the division that we’re bringing in. We’re bringing in the 135-pound division.”

White went so far as to say Rousey and another female could potentially coach male fighters on the UFC’s flagship reality show, “The Ultimate Fighter.”
