It's official

Rhonda rousey vs Chris cyborg for first ever female title

I have mixed emotions

But rousey vs cyborg is better than rousey vs Tate

Being their live for first ever female championhip
And fact it won't last a round. I don't know how to feel

I looked on every news site I know and none of them say this. Dana would have announced it on his twitter if it was official as well. And the title of this thread is confusing.

Yeah, I saw it. I think that was just a mistake. Cyborg shot down the rumours (Which doesn't always mean anything, but it's the only thing I could find)

Not official at all.

It was posted on http://br.ufc.com/ for a short period but has since been removed.

I don't see a women's title fight as a headliner for a PPV event just yet.I think it'd be better as co-main event alongside another title fight.Even though Rousey is becoming a pretty marketable and known person i just don't see it as main event material for a UFC PPV.

But i'm just a sexist douchebag so who cares what i say..

Ufc always pull a rabbit out of there ass.
Makes sense. Dana did say rousey would headline a ppv event. No other titles fights are in future.
If not cyborg Tate vs rousey rematch likely

True, However Dana has said a ton of shit that has or hasn't happened.No knock on the guy just facts.

lol


Outside of the hardcore fans...I just don't see a ton of people purchasing a PPV headlined by a Rousey Vs Tate rematch as someone else mentioned. Especially after the way Rousey pretty much dominated her the first time.Cyborg and Rhonda is intruging.It's not a knock on women...Invicta puts on some hellacious WMMA fights.I'm just saying to casual folks i don't see a womens title fight as a big PPV unless it has a solid undercard.I think bringing in the WMMA fights and building it up one a time would be a better way like they did with BW and FW divisions.

Looks like you're going to the first ever title defense, as she was just crowned the champ officially.
