    Kayla Harrison recently signed with WSOF.

    WSOF is doing so bad, NBC is looking to drop it when the deal ends sometime in 2017, and lots of people are speculating that WSOF ends up on UFC Fight Pass.

    Regardless if Ronda wins or loses, she fights for the 145 belt next, and then even if she loses, she will fight Kayla Harrison to draw in the ratings.

    It would have been easier for her to sign with Invicta.

    More like the UFC creating the women's 145lbs division so that if Rousey beats Nunes she can get an immediate title shot at the 145lbs belt and possibly become the 2nd fighter ever to hold two belts simultaneously. Nothing more than the UFC trying to create legacies rather than the fighters doing it themselves.

    I think the UFC should just absorb it.

    They need Daniel Branch to save their LHW/MW divisions and they need Justin Gaetje for LW because he fights like Pettis.

    LOL at “superfight” with someone that almost no one outside MMA forums has ever heard of.

    Kayla is far away from this, Ronda will be long gone by then, plus I won't be convinced Kayla can make 145 until I see it. I also have no idea how she'll react to getting punched in the head or leg kicked.

    The fact is, the general public doesn't care much about any women's sports...Doesn't matter what it is...

    I thought it's a setup for an obvious superfight with Holm and/or Cyborg.
