    If Gina didn't stop fighting after her loss to Cyborg, would Dana have introduced a women's division to the UFC? Ronda was the reason why there is now a women's division, but Gina was extremely popular and she brought a lot of interest to Women's MMA.

    What do you guys think?

    LOL That's a good point. Gina struggled to make weight for fights, so maybe there would have been a 145 division.

    Yes, she would have accelerated the process of including womens` divisions in the UFC. The bigger "what if" is how big she would have become and faster women`s MMA would have taken off if she had beaten Cyborg. If she had not only continued fighting, but had continued fighting as the champ...it could`ve been a big money-maker for the Strikeforce/UFC.

    No, Ronda is the reason for WMMA in the UFC.

    Gina always wanted to do movies and lost passion for MMA.
