Ronda Rousey officially joins the UFC - SF closing in January.
 


Quote:

Ronda Rousey just made MMA history ... becoming the very first female fighter to join the UFC ... TMZ has learned.

Rousey -- a former U.S. Olympian -- has officially joined Dana White's MMA organization ... and automatically becomes the 135 lb women's champion.

We're told 25-year-old Ronda will defend her title in 2013 -- possible opponents include Sara McMann, Cris Cyborg and rival Miesha Tate.

Rousey has been fighting in Strikeforce since last year and emerged as a superstar ... beating the living crap out of just about everybody she's faced. In fact, she's undefeated.

And there's more ... sources say Strikeforce, which airs on Showtime, will be running its last event in January before folding up shop for good.

A rep for Strikeforce had no comment.

Meh, I'm not trusting TMZ...

I'll wait for another source, and true then that would be a huge step in UFC.

Yeah they announced the final event

Gilbert Melendez vs Pat Healy
Nate Marquardt vs Tarec Saffadine
Luke Rockhold vs Lorenz Larkin
Daniel Cormier vs Sack of Potatoes

Kind of a shame as Larkin really shouldn't get the last shot Jacare should, that would be a fitting final event.
