Dana White officially announced Ronda Rousey as the first ever UFC women's champion during the UFC on FOX 5 press conference and immediately put her in the main event of an upcoming show.
Rousey will headline UFC 157, the February 23 show in Anaheim, California, against Liz Carmouche with the title on the line.
White also announced that the next fight for Rousey after this one will be the much talked about fight against Cris Cyborg at 135.
When asked why Rousey is fighting Caramouche and not someone else, White said that people are not knocking Zuffa's door saying they want to fight Rousey and Caramouche stepped up and said she wants it.
