12:10 PM ET 11.09 | She's the biggest star in women's MMA. She's the heir apparent to Gina Carano's throne. She breaks arms like she breaks hearts (oh lordy...). And she's coming to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. In case you haven't heard, news broke this morning that Ronda Rousey, reigning Strikeforce 135-pound women's champion, Olympic judo medalist, undefeated MMA fighter and all-round bad lady, is headed for the UFC. And make no mistake about it: this is the biggest game-changing move the UFC has made since it signed some guy named Brock-something way back when. In fact, Rousey has the potential to move the needle with mainstream sports fans like few fighters before her.

No. UFC will create women division. I believe StrikeForce is folding.
