I found out earlier today that Dana White is going to create a women's division in the UFC! In an article on Sports Illustrated's website (which I saw through a link on Twitter), Dana White said that he was definitely going to have a women's division. He was dead set against it until he met Ronda Rousey, the coolest girl in MMA. She has slowly been changing his mind, even to the point where he put the preview to her match against Sarah Kaufman on UFC's official site. It seems now that he has finally "submitted", so to speak, and has agreed to bring women into the octagon! Thank goodness! I thought he was going to make us wait until he had a 115 lbs. division, a 105 lbs. division, a super heavyweight division, and a bunch of other divisions which we don't need. Although, now that I think about it, a super heavyweight division would be kind of cool (Tubby thunder!!!!). But I digress. Women are coming to the UFC! I know everyone is demanding a Rousey-Santos superfight, but I personally think that, without the drugs, Santos is doomed. What I am more interested in seeing is a "Battle of the Olympians." In other words, I want to see Rousey go toe-to-toe with Sara McMann! Sara will probably have to earn a couple of more wins before that happens, but, as an Olympic silver medalist in wrestling, I think that she can pull it off. At any rate, I am glad that I will finally be able to see the fairer sex open up a can of whoop-tushy in the cage without having to buy premium cable.
