In an historic and groundbreaking moment for mixed martial arts history, Ronda Rousey will soon be a member of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Rousey, the Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion, will become the first female fighter in UFC history, crossing a barrier that even a year ago seemed to be highly unlikely, if not nearly impossible.

The news comes from TMZ, though sources with the UFC and Strikeforce could not immediately confirm the report to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

And apparently most of the Strikeforce roster will follow suit in 2013.

I don't know if I like this. Rousey's a spectacular fighter, but another division? I think what brought the UFC to the mainstream was that they only had 4-5 belts that people could follow. Stars were quickly established and fighters had to fight more often to maintain their places.

At this point a Female division is the thing that can save UFC. People are starting to care less and less about the UFC that isnt GSP/Silva/Jones. Give the fans something new to follow

Rousey will bring in more/fans then probably all of the heavyweights
