    I think that might just be it. Ronda and Gina should bang.

    Good. I'm glad to see the ladies in the mix. I don't have an aversion to watching females compete.

    Miesha Tate Happy Ronda Rousey Is in the UFC But the Credit Belongs to All Women (Video) | MMAWeekly.com
    “It’s not just Ronda, it’s not just myself, that’s for sure. If Ronda’s coming over to the UFC obviously there’s going to be a division around that, it’s not just Ronda. I know Ronda’s getting a lot of the credit and what not, but she didn’t have a lot to do with from the ground up,” Tate told MMAWeekly Radio after the news was announced.

    “We’re at the top of the mountain now that’s kind of how I feel anyways, with this accomplishment coming into the UFC, we’ve kind of reached that final goal. But we had to start at the bottom and a lot of the pioneers Tara (LaRosa), Marloes (Coenen), Molly Helsel, the girls that were really fighting back in the day before we were making any kind of money, or there was any kind of publicity, or much acceptance of it.”

    From Gina Carano’s emergence through Elite XC and then into Strikeforce, from Bodog Fights putting on some of the first mainstream women’s bouts all the way back to the women’s fights that took place in the Hook ‘N’ Shoot promotion, the women have been waiting for a moment like this forever and now it’s here.

    “We were fighting for this, right here, right now. She’s getting a lot of the credit and the limelight, but people who follow the sport understand there was a lot more getting to this point. I hope people can recognize that and give all the women that have worked really hard some credit,” Tate stated.

    As far as her own future goes, Tate hasn’t been told specifically about a UFC deal, or when she would make that transition, but with the conversations that she’s had, everything is looking very positive.

    “I would love to be a part of the first women’s MMA fight in the UFC, but if I’m not I’m not going to focus on the negative. I’ve just been thinking about that a lot, my goal is to get into the UFC regardless and at this point I consider myself in the UFC,” said Tate.

    “It’s happening, Dana’s made it very clear that it’s happening, and amongst personal talks with him and Sean (Shelby) and everyone I’m definitely pretty sure the UFC’s in my future.”
    “Our rivalry is very real. I know a lot of people don’t believe that Ronda can’t be beaten, that’s she’s just untouchable, but I beg to differ,” Tate stated.

    “If I do get that rematch in the UFC, it’s going to be one hell of a fight.”

    man i know. i would really like to see guys like melendez, rockhold, and cormier fight again. trouble is looking at the lineup for the january card these will likely be nothing more than showcase fights. melendez has the toughest draw of the bunch but i still see him crushing healy.

    what i really want is for at least the three previously named plus jacare, kennedy, and gregard to get into the UFC and start damn fighting the best so we can see what they are all really made of.

    i salivate at the possibilities:

    rockhold/weidman for the new MW champ
    cormier/JDS
    melendez/bendo
    kennedy/stann
    jacare/paulharris
    mousasi/shogun

    Im really stoked to see Cyborg/Ronda but I really hope this doesnt further dilute the UFC product and force fans to pay to see mediocre womens fighters in place of a legit mens fight.... we will have to wait and see how this turns out.

    If mma picks up in country's like china and India and Mexico the division will gain popularity very quickly... I also like that most ppl on here have cut me up for enjoying the 125ers... I guess ppl just don't enjoy good technique...

    That's one fighter man... What happens if she loses... I mean this might work for a bit but in the long term I see it failing big time... And honestly am hoping it crashes and burns the sooner the better.
