It's impossible to actually prove her effect on the women's division, but Dana White has all but gone on record as being a Rousey nuthugger (heh.) And if that doesn't convince you - You've never started a giveaway thread for any other fighter's loss.

Rousey is the real deal as a fighter, and the most marketable woman in MMA. Deal with it.
Deal with it? I'm content with the fact that she's marketable, but it does nothing to legitimize WMMA when you crown a champ who is largely untested in her career and then nuthug her to no end. All of the nuthugging is what has set the UFC up for hurting if she loses, they created the star power she has. I think the UFC will be just fine without her as champ.
