UFC 157: Female Fighting Doesn’t Die With Ronda Rousey Loss

The UFC is putting a lot of pressure on Ronda Rousey, building her up as the face of women’s MMA leading into tonight’s match at UFC 157 with Liz Carmouche.

But, if the UFC bantamweight champion were to stumble, the division isn’t going to seize to exist.

UFC president Dana White stated earlier this week that females are here to stay in the UFC going forward.

Two women are going to fight, whoever wins is going to defend the title. It’s no different than two guys fighting. The commitment to women’s MMA is there. We are going to build this division up. These women are talented and they belong here. They are going to come in, fight on a card and prove it, just like every other person who has come in the UFC.

Rousey is the focal point, especially with her good looks and charisma. However, Miesha Tate, Carmouche, Sara McMann – they all can become champions and carry the load in the division and help raise the prospects of women’s MMA.
