White said that development, as well as other potential things in the works, were predicated on Rousey winning and essentially going over with fans as well as she has so far. He said the UFC had discussions about her being a potential "TUF" coach prior to her first-round armbar win over Carmouche.
"Obviously her winning the fight was a big deal,"said White. "There were a lot of things going on for that fight that determined it. We had kicked it around that maybe it could happen."
White said he doesn't have any concerns about having a big enough talent pool to fill a cast of women's bantamweights for the house.
"We already know we have enough women to do it," said White. "And every time you do tryouts people pop up that you never knew about."
