As he watched a group of 50 women try out for the "The Ultimate Fighter 18," UFC President Dana White admitted he was impressed with the talent level of the fighters. And while his promotion currently employs only 135-pound women, White doesn't believe that will always be the case.

"You would think so," White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) when asked if he expected to add more women's divisions to the UFC. "If you think about it, when we started this company, we had heavyweights, light heavyweights, middleweights and welterweights. That was it. When we brought in the 155-pound division, everybody was like, 'This is crazy. They're too small. Nobody will ever watch.'

I would love a 125 pound division of Women more then a 145 to be honest.

as long as they develop 135 first, get some depth and raise the profile of WMMA then they can bring in 145 or 125. This time next year I think should be the earliest they bring in another womens division
