"The UFC women's bantamweight title will go to Strikeforce bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, without a fight...."

Read Article

My Thoughts:

I am not a fan of Rousey, but it is obvious she has been heading for super stardom for quite some time. She has had some impressive wins, but her attitude disgusts me. And now the UFC is just handing her the belt without making her earn it by winning a fight. What a disgrace.

Also, I think Cyborg would rough her up.

Cmon son. She is the Anderson Silva of her division except she uses armbars instead of striking.

Makes sense to me. They bring in a new division so the current title holder should get the belt. She's more than earned it, in my opinion.

I think Cyborg has proven her integrity by failing her PED test's one to many times. Rousey deserving a belt without a fight is definitely the most absurd thing I have heard. The UFC with its bogus decisions, reversed decisions because of ped tests and its cheating of honest athletes is slowly turning me away from their organization. Keep up the good work YAY!!!!!

What are you guys talking about? The Flyweights had a tourney because it was a new division. This is just transferring a division from Strikeforce to the UFC. The same thing happened when Aldo came from the WEC to the UFC. I don't understand the complaints. This is exactly how it was supposed to happen.

A tournament wouldnt make much sense in this division since Rousey has proven herself.

With the flyweights, no one really knew who was the best in the weight class.

Ya, there aren't any question marks here. No competition, no one on the horizon. No need for the division, the title or my time. It's all about getting into new media spaces with a 'pretty' face.

This, this, this and nothing BUT this.

Get off your butthurt high horses. I suppose Jose Aldo should've had to prove himself when 145 was brought to the UFC?
