UFC President Dana White said the UFC has added female stars Germaine de Randamie, Julie Kedzie, Sarah Kaufman and Amanda Nunes to its growing list of women's 135-pounders added to the roster.
All four ladies formerly competed under the Strikeforce banner.
"It was one of the biggest moments in all of sports," White said of the historic UFC 157 event. "Never in the history of this company have we had so much media attention. And tonight 'SportsCenter' was Tweeting non-stop about the fight. Tonight is a monumental night and tomorrow … Let me tell you what: I never realized, it's 2013, the hate that some weirdos have in this country about women in sports. It's sickening and ridiculous."
With the addition of four potential challengers to Rousey's belt, the women's bantamweight division looks deeper than ever. White has no regrets about adding the division to the UFC, and he was gushing about the Rousey vs Carmouche fight at the UFC 157 post-fight presser.
"And tonight, the main event was one of the best fights of the night…. All the talk about Carmouche being a set up fight for Ronda, and all the stupidness that people spew leading up to an awesome event like this … I guarantee Ronda isn't going to be chewing a lot of food tonight at the after party," White said of Rousey. "Those hurt and she was cranking that thing hard."
