Ronda Rousey, the biggest name in women's mixed martial arts, appears to be headed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship ranks with Strikeforce set to fold.
Although UFC leaders have said in the past that there aren't enough women to form a competitive division, Strikeforce's bantam-weight champion seems to have swayed their opinion. With two Strikeforce events canceled this fall, it appears UFC is ready to take in their fighters, according to TMZ.com.
Rousey, an Olympic bronze medalist in judo, has become a sensation with one victory after another, almost all by submission.
UFC President Dana White understands she is marketable. He likes the fact that she doesn't just train to fight, but she enjoys submitting her opponents.
