UFC President Dana White confirmed the UFC deal, which is the first for a female fighter, today while a guest on "The Jim Rome Show" ahead of Saturday's UFC 154 event.

"Yes, it's official," White said. "Ronda Rousey did sign with the UFC.

"... She has the whole package. ... This girl is nasty. She might be beautiful on the outside, but she's a Diaz brother on the inside. She's a real fighter and real talented. She has the credentials and the pedigree. And she has the 'it' factor. I think she's going to be a big superstar."

Fair points but i suspect ronda would muscle cyborg around like she does everyone else-- elite level athletes like her have mat strength that a few cycles of winny just wont give you

What? Cyborg would destroy Rousey just like she has done everyone else. It is easier for Rousey to move up than for Cyborg to move down in weight, if that fight were to ever happen.

Mcmann would be a great choice but since their trying to build up Rousey , they wouldn't put her in with such a tough opponent. Either way, female fights are always entertaining and are the natural progression of any organization.

Females will likely have shorter careers than men which is gonna be a problem. People are always bitching about how their favorites (randy, chuck, hughes, etc...) are gone... it's gonna be worse with the woman.

Anne Wolfe is bigger than Cyborg, roids or no roids. Scary woman.

Megu is retiring. I confirmed it personally with Josh Barnett.
