While just about everybody in the world wants UFC President Dana White to commit to having women’s fighting in the Octagon, he’s only ever gone as far as saying that ‘super fights’ might be a possibility down the road.

He also recently stated ‘if there was a girl that I had to say right now that would probably be in the UFC in the next 10 years it would probably be Ronda (Rousey).”

For Rousey’s part, she’s still soaking it all in – the whirlwind from working two jobs with one on the graveyard shift less than two years ago – to headlining Showtime card, appearing on Conan O’Brien and becoming the new face of women’s MMA.

At her core however, Rousey is a fighter and that’s what she’s most concerned about, not where they fights take place.

“No, we really haven’t talked specifically about what promotion I’m going to fight in, I just know the people that I want to fight, and where they show it is not my business so much. As long as I still get the fights I want, and I still get paid, I’m pretty much happy,” Rousey stated when speaking about her conversations with White in the past.

“Whether it’s on Showtime, or pay-per-view, or Fox, it’s just a fight to me. The only difference is how other people are watching it. It doesn’t change my fight.”

Obviously when it comes to the promotional side of things, Rousey is a Strikeforce fighter and for the foreseeable future when she fights it will be on Showtime as confirmed by Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker at the post fight press conference.

“It’s definitely going to be a Showtime fight,” Coker interjected when asked about where Rousey might be competing next.

As far as when Rousey will fight next, that remains a mystery. With two title fights down already in 2012 and no viable opponents peaking around the corner, it would probably be a safe bet to say Rousey won’t return until 2013.

The reigning and defending Strikeforce bantamweight women’s world champion is more concerned with slipping away from the spotlight for a few days and then she’ll map out her next course.

“After every fight I like to just take a week to kind of fall off the map and just kind of disappear. It gets tiring sometimes doing all this stuff,” Rousey stated.

“We’ve got a couple really cool plans. I want to train at home for a little while, probably go to Stockton for a little bit, we’re thinking of going to Thailand or something cool like that. We’ve got some time so we’ll do something fun.”
