Ronda Rousey wants to fight everybody, including Invicta featherweight champ Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino, according to UFC President Dana White. The UFC women's bantamweight champ seems to be the only shark in a shallow pool. After dusting off top contender Alexis Davis in just 16 seconds a little over a month ago, Rousey has once again put the UFC in the increasingly difficult spot of finding another suitable challenger.

UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey hasn't completely cleared out her division, but don't tell that to the sea of unofficial MMA matchmakers. In Macau Wednesday for this weekend's Fight Night event, Rousey and UFC president Dana White couldn't escape civilian pleas to book the champ against a shortlist mostly comprised of unsigned women that have never fought at 135 pounds.

A "super" fight between UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and women's MMA pioneer Gina Carano has felt like an awkward inevitability for a long while now. "Awkward" because Carano hasn't fought since 2009, when she suffered a brutally lopsided knockout loss to Cris "Cyborg" Justino (at the time, Cris "Cyborg" Santos). "Inevitable" because the UFC has been so desperate for star power, pay-per-view buys and opponents for Rousey. Well, according to UFC President Dana White, who spoke t read news >>
