Here's how much the UFC thinks of Ronda Rousey and her exploding star power: the newly signed women's bantamweight champion will most likely main event a pay-per-view in her octagon debut, UFC president Dana White said.

"She's the champ," he said. "Unless there's a weight division higher than her that the champ would be defending the title, then yeah, she'd be the main event."

That's quite a turnaround for White, who as recently as 2011 said women would "never" fight in a UFC cage.

My biggest problem is that Rousey hasn't been out of the 1st round and they're going to make the 5 round fight of the night be hers? As long as the co-main event is a 5 round fight I'm fine with it.

then you pay the 50 for a one rounder that coulda been a 5 rounder real fight...I guess youd rather see Rousey than a five rounder say Machida Henderson?


Basically what you are saying then is you will agree to pay the same for a less product...

Dana would pat you on the head...

a) I don't need to pay $50....I have friends to split the cost. I assume you don't
b) I guess none of us should ever buy an Anderson fight or a HW title fight that headlines a PPV anymore because they end in the 1st round too

Could you do us all a favor and not put your opinion in the title for the thread. If you do, throw it somewhere other than the news forum.

Hey king_ _ _SMUSHer - - -

Cooler is a bit lonely, why don't you take your crooked hat and your chin strap, drawn in beard over to his dumpster and ya'll can play pin the tail on the D-Bag

I'd drop $100.00 to see Ms. Ronda fight some bum in the cheap seats.....

Not to be that guy or anything.. but I'd prefer if you didn't toss your own opinion in the title..

EDIT: Didn't read the comments before posting. Guess I'm not the only one who feels that way.

I think Rousey as a main event for a ppv is a great idea. I will definitely purchase this one and ill purchase it in HD, so thats 70$ I know that drives you even more nuts dont it. I'm perfectly fine with a 1 round fight. I would much rather watch Ronda arm bar someone in the first round then watch Machida back pedal away from Hendo all fight and get awarded the decision. .

On a side note WAR ROUSEY

I for one believe that Anderson Silva cards should cost 2/5 of GSP cards, because Anderson finishes a lot more fights

I love how Dana is such a hypocrite. I wouldn't be surprised if next week he says now she's demoted to 1st prelim fight. And then a week after that she's soloing an entire UFC card

I think he has a crush on her too..it's cute

Yeah he does have a crush. He's probably already smashed her back doors in.

Okay so we know they now have a womens division and that Rousey will headline a PPV. Now we just need to know who else is in the division.
I'm not really sure what to think yet since the details are still scarce ........... It seems though their's not a lot of real official stuff yet.
Can't wait to see how this all pans out.

I had to STL, but I'll quote this because it's about as good a comeback as one will see today.

im just not a fan until the weight class deepens if she main events one or two cards then disapears because theres no new challenges it was a waste of everyones time

While I respect her right to fight and I applaud the UFC for treating her the same as all the other champs....

I wouldn't buy this card unless there were several awesome main event fights.

Just not interested in this.

Headline an FX or Fox card would be cool but main event on PPV is a bad idea in my opinion. Womens MMA doesnt have enough exposer with mainstream fans yet for her to carry a PPV with her name. Unless the fight is against Cyborg it wouldnt be Main Event material(fine dime vs Blanka from street fighter would sell). That being said i would love to see the her headline a fox card. That would get tons of people tuning in and whe would blow everyone who has never seen her fight away for free.

The main event of a PPV is a mistake.

Dana knows this and I bet it will be stacked to compensate for it.

The women's division will be out of here when/if the cards dont rack in the $$ .

I like how so many people say there is so little interest in her or women’s MMA but if you look at the amount of comments on any thread about her/it there’s at least twice as many as any other thread on the board. She's a polarizing person and an exciting fighter to watch. She reminds me of what Chael would be if he could actually back up his trash talk. I'd prefer a co-main event slot myself though.
