Reigning UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has a major crush on one of the sport’s most-famous fighters.
During a recent meeting with reporters in Los Angeles, Rousey was asked for her opinion on Fedor Emelianenko, a Russian mixed martial artist who recorded 35 wins throughout one of the most-dominant careers in the sport’s history. But for Rousey, the 37-year-old athelete’s appeal extends beyond his prowess in the octagon.

This article does show how Ronda is really just a person not an evil being like everyone make her out to be and doesn’t sit on a pedestal like some people put her on.
Miesha also said last night that she was joining UFC along side Ronda Rousey in upcoming year. Tate who lost to Ronda was looking to step back away from fighting after her loss from Rousey, but challenger herself and came back with a victory against Julie Kedzie back in August of this year. Tate who is 1-1 in 2012 and 13-3 as a professional overall will start her career in the UFC and I am sure that it will be a good one. Miesha has been the ultimate female fighter in pioneering women’s mma to the mainstream doing whatever she can to make women’s mma stand out above the rest.
Tate who just came back from a trip to Brazil is looking forward to being in the UFC and I talk to her last night she says even though the ink is not dry as of yet it’s a no brainer that she is also going to the UFC and also said that it was made clear to her that she is going to have a home under the UFC banner but final terms have not been reached yet. I am sure final terms will be reached soon.
Tate who is looking for another fight against Ronda after her devastating armbar loss to Rousey will probably have to wait a bit since there are other fighters looking to get the first crack to break Rousey’s undefeated record which include Sara McMann and Cris Cyborg. I am sure that if Cyborg and McMann both lose to Rousey that Tate will get another crack at Rousey.
I am pretty sure that Dana White is looking for the better fight card potential and right now, everyone knows that a Cyborg/Rousey match would be the ultimate match, especially in business and for the card.
I want to say good luck to Miesha on her upcoming career with UFC and hope the best for her!

That’s right everyone, Ronda made the big time, she’s now the 135 lb. women’s champion. Ronda has been fighting for Strikeforce for about a year now, and has won every fight she has fought in the cage by armbar. Ronda who is 6-0 as a pro and is 2-0 in 2012 looks to have fight in 2012 against either Sara McMann, Cris Cyborg or her rival Miesha Tate, she already fought Miesha and beat her with her classic armbar. Rousey has yet to face McMann and Cyborg, everyone in wmma community would love to see Rousey take on Cyborg but Rousey has stated many times that Cyborg would have to go under a microscope in her training camp since she was busted last year for using drugs and suspended for a year. Cyborg gets off suspension in December and looks to head over to Invicta very soon, but I am sure that a fight between Cyborg and Rousey could happen in the future.
Rousey and McMann would more likely the better matchup since both fighters are from the same common ground and I would like to see how they would match up in the cage since Sara is also undefeated with her last fight against Shayna Baszler back in July with InvictaFC. Both fighters are well within their weight class and about the same height and I am sure that this would be a battle on the ground of grand proportions.
So look for more information coming from UFC on this story in the coming weeks.
“And there’s more … sources say Strikeforce, which airs on Showtime, will be running its last event in January before folding up shop for good. A rep for Strikeforce had no comment.

Good luck to Ronda Rousey on her upcoming Career with UFC I hope that you get that pay day that all the wmma community has been fighting for all these years!
