Screen shot 2013-07-27 at 8.23.56 AMWith Ronda Rousey’s quick rise to fame in the MMA world and her already significant impact on the UFC, including achieving over 500,000 buys in her first UFC appearance, coaching a male/female edition of The Ultimate Fighter as well as a co-main event slot in arguably the biggest PPV of the year, UFC 168 in December. While the women’s bantamweight division is blossoming quite nicely in it’s inaugural year in the organization, according to Dana White, fans shouldn’t get your hopes up on more divisions just yet. When asked about potentially adding another women’s division, the UFC President did not seem quite convinced.

” Not true. We are still building our women’s division, getting people to know who these girls are. We have to see how this one works for a couple of years before we consider.”

This does not incinuate that White is displeased with the way things are panning out with the division and while the Julie Kedzie fight on the preliminary portion was far from exciting, he dmits he thoroughly enjoyed Liz Carmouche’s performance on the main card.

“Those two really delivered. I wasn’t crazy about the earlier fight (Germaine de Randamie vs. Julie Kedzie), but it’s great having that one. Liz really is an animal. She comes out and goes for it.”

With a bantamweight division that boasts the likes of Miesha Tate, Cat Zingano, Sarah Kaufman, Liz Carmouche and many others, there should be enough match-ups to occupy fans until the UFC decides on the future of women’s MMA.
