Ronda Rousey confirms UFC signing, Dana White has “four or five” fights lined up

In what was expected to happen, Ronda Rousey has confirmed via her Twitter that she has signed a contract with the UFC and will fight in 2013 against an opponent yet to be named.  Rousey actually asked the fans who they think she should fight, and asked them to Tweet the names to UFC President Dana White.

Rousey’s official Tweet:

Okay I admit it…I’m officially a @ufc fighter 🙂 SO excited! Can’t wait to debut! Let @danawhite know who you want my 1st opponent to be!

The UFC head honcho explained the whole ordeal:

“She has the whole package. I’ve never been interested in women’s MMA. First, there weren’t enough girls to create an entire women’s division. There was never… when I talk about a superstar or standout, people talk about Gina Carano and talk about all these others, I’m telling you: this girl, she’s nasty. She might be beautiful on the outside, she’s a Diaz brother on the inside. She’s a real fighter and she’s very talented. She has the credentials, the pedigree, I mean everything. And she has the ‘it’ factor. I think she’s going to be a big superstar.”

White also went on to discuss when and how many fights will be proposed for Rousey:

“You can never tell how fight’s are going to go, and she’s got, you know, four or five good fights lined (up), you know. The next two years we’ve got actually really good opponents for her and it’s going to be interesting. We’ll see what happens. There is (enough talent) in that division. In the 135-pound division there is. These other women’s division, no, there’s not.”

So, what do all you MMACanada Fanatics think about the signing? Comment away!
