Chris27 - Because she is the best fighter in the world in that div and was champ of the world in that div in SF, just like Aldo was the best FW and champ and held the top belt in that div. So Aldo got a UFC title and so does Ronda.


This. It wouldn't have been fair to Ronda otherwise... but I don't think Aldo should have had a UFC title walking in the door, either. Ronda would have ended up with it on fight night anyway, but still...

Aldo actually had decent competition to fight and not gimme fights.

Tate was ranked #1 in the division when Ronda beat her for the belt.  Kaufmann was ranked #2 in the division when Ronda beat her.  She also has wins over the current #9 in her division, and  #3 & #6 in the featherweight division.  Those aren't gimmee fights.

50 years in the future I can see mma historians laughing about the old days when champions would be crowned without winning a fight. Having said that, by then fighters will probably require headgear and shinguards too. Phone Post

She's the Strikeforce champ. SF is going under and the fighters are being folded into UFC. So her championship is simply being transferred to the absorbing org.

It's really not that big of a deal.

UGCTT_CreepysStacheWax - "Jorgensen finally got his title shot and faced Dominick Cruz on December 16, 2010 at the promotion's final event, WEC 53.[12] The winner of the bout would become both the final WEC Bantamweight Champion and the first ever UFC Bantamweight Champion, marking the first time a UFC title would be awarded outside the UFC.[13] Jorgensen lost the fight via unanimous decision."

Dominick WON the UFC belt, Jose Aldo did not, he defended it against Faber.

You're making an argument semantics, citing one example that occurred by coincidence of events. Your argument is pointless and invalid.
What ru talking about? The fighter that won that fight won the belt. Dominick was not handed the belt he had to fight for it at wec 32. Then defended it against faber. If jorg won wec 32 he would have been ufc champion and last wec champion. Phone Post
Cruz technically won the belt in his fight against Scott. But you're still wrong. Whoever won that fight was gifted the ufc belt by default. They did not fight for it in the ufc. The same could be said about Aldo's last fight in the WEC, they just didn't promote the fight that way because the decision to combine the promotions wasn't public yet. Pretty tough to argue that Cruz won the ufc belt when he didn't fight in the ufc for it. Phone Post
It was public that ufc bought wec first of all. Secondly that was known to be the last wec. Winner moves on to ufc champion. He won the ufc belt that night Phone Post

UGCTT_Fraser_Finlay -  How did Cruz and Aldo get their belts without fighting in the UFC?

Because they are the best fighters in their division and that division hadn't been established in the UFC yet. That's why. Phone Post

And they were champs in that division in a promotion the UFC was absorbing.
Exactly. So is Rousey, lol :) Phone Post

I know. I was reinforcing your point :)

bekk46 - So what happens if she loses to carmouche?

She will be the former UFC champion without ever winning a UFC fight.

Makes perfect sense. Phone Post
