Ronda Rousey @RondaRousey
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!
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.”
