Ronda Rousey Strikeforce
There appears to be a crack opening in UFC President Dana White’s stance about women’s MMA hitting the Octagon, but it’s going to take some serious science to make it happen.

White has always maintained the stance that until there is a lot more depth in the women’s division, he could never envision a time when the ladies would share the same stage as the men inside the UFC Octagon.

It’s no secret however over the last several months that White has become a huge fan of Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and her style both in and out of the cage.

Now if only they could transport her to George Lucas’ fantasy epic world of Star Wars and make a few more copies of Rousey, then White might start considering a women’s division in the UFC.

“I love Ronda Rousey. I don’t know where women’s MMA is going,” White admitted.

“She’s the example, she’s the level, we get a bunch of women at her level we’ll see what happens.”

Right now, Rousey is awaiting her next challenge in Strikeforce coming up in August where she faces former women’s champion Sarah Kaufman in the main event.

While Rousey’s star power and appeal are undoubtedly on the rise, White isn’t ready to waver just yet in his idea that women’s fighting won’t be a full fledged division in the UFC until there’s more competitors like the current champion in Strikeforce.

It remains to be seen if there are a few more Ronda Rousey’s just waiting to be discovered.
