UFC President Dana White spoke with reporters after the UFC on FUEL TV 5 event earlier this month and communicated that he would bring Strikeforce women’s champion Ronda Rousey to the UFC. However, in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated White said:
“It’s absolutely going to happen”
White sees Rousey as a budding superstar and he would be correct in that assessment. She has destroyed all of the competition she has faced up to this point in her young career. She is an Olympic medalist in the sport of Judo and is very good at building hype for her fights.
White went on to state that much of this is dependant upon the future of the Strikeforce promotion in which Rousey is the champion. She currently has three fights left on her contract:
“Nothing is immenient. She’s a Strikeforce champion not a UFC fighter. We still have three fights left for Strikeforce.”
