UFC In The Works To Start A 115 Pound (Strawweight) Women’s Division

UFC President, Dana White revealed the UFC is working on bringing in a 115 pound women’s division, explaining that the weekly viewing figure boosts on the most recent season of “The Ultimate Fighter” has pointed to MMA fans caring about the women’s side of the sport.

Dana, speaking via sources said:

“People care (about the women). I didn’t see it (coming). The thing that’s really cool about it is, just like you said, there’s a lot of other women’s sports that a lot of people don’t care about, and a lot of people don’t support, and a lot of people don’t follow. On The Ultimate Fighter right now that’s airing, the women are out-rating the men. When the women fight, ratings are up 44-percent.”

“It’s pretty cool. I never in a million years thought that it would take off the way it has. I’ll even give you guys something that nobody knows yet. We’re actually working on bringing in another division right now for women, which I said wouldn’t happen for a long time.”
