LOS ANGELES - Ronda Rousey's legacy in mixed martial arts is already secure.
She was the fighter who pushed the UFC to break the gender barrier, the first women's headliner in the company and the first UFC women's bantamweight champion.
But while Rousey has blazed an impressive trail in putting together an undefeated record, with all wins via finish, she won't be fully satisfied with her career unless she gets to fight the woman who got her interested in fighting in the first place.

On Saturday, Chris Weidman's first title fight against an opponent other than Anderson Silva let fans down.
Early on, Weidman was beating Lyoto Machida by moving forward patiently and mixing in takedowns. After seemingly dropping the first three rounds on the scorecards, Machida came out more aggressive in the fourth stanza and began turning things around.
Despite Machida's late push, Weidman was able to weather the storm. A takedown in the fifth round helped Weidman seal the win and defend his more
Frankie Edgar is on his way back to another shot at the 145-pound championship.
At The Ultimate Fighter 19 finale, Edgar earned a third win over BJ Penn. The Answer dominated his fellow former lightweight champion and eventually stopped Penn with ground-and-pound in the third round.
Having only lost to Jose Aldo and Benson Henderson since April 2008, Edgar remains one of the best in the world without a UFC belt. With one or two more wins, he could have a chance to become a two-division champion, more
