Perhaps "Conviction" knows something we don't? Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey is no stranger to the featherweight division, having started her career at 145 pound before making the drop down to run the table in the lighter weight class. Would she be willing to move back up? Only for ex-Strikeforce star Gina Carano (sorry, Cyborg), but it sounds like that won't be necessary, since "Conviction" is insisting on a fight at bantamweight, if and when read news >>

The game has changed a lot in the last five years ...
