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."
