    If you've been watching the Olympics you'll now Ronda Rousey's old training partner has just won her SECOND gold medal at the 78kg weight class.

    She has recently said she is retiring after this bout and is "considering MMA"

    Now much like cyborg Kayla competes at a size much larger than UFC WBW's weighing in at over 170lbs for the Olympic tournament.

    However unlike cyborg she has several things going for her that makes her a much more attractive option as the face of the WFW division.

    1. She is white, blonde, and undoubtedly considered attractive by sherdog's finest connoisseurs of women (thus she is marketable as a sex symbol like ronda/unlike cyborg)

    2. She actually won the Olympic gold not only once but twice. I imagine that makes her 6-9 times more marketable than Rousey's "first american to win a bronze schtick."

    3. She has a history with Rousey which could set itself up for the largest superfight of all times when Rousey moves up to unify the titles if a ex training partner grudge match.

    Thoughts? Can "Howdy" Kayla Harrison be the next starlet of the UFC? What percentage of the male BW could she beat? (for reference Ronda could beat abt. 50% souce: Immortan Joe Frogan)

    Whatever brings attention and growth to women's FW I'm a fan of. It'll take more than just her though. Cyborg having a "worthy" adversary would certainly help.

    Cyborg doesn't share her vitamins.

    No idea why the UFC doesn't swallow up Invicta already.
