The UFC ushered in a new era with the main event match-up last weekend between Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche, introducing countless fans to the world of women’s MMA. Leading up to the event it was revealed the UFC already had ten females signed to deals, though a large portion of the lot remained a mystery.
FOX Sports has since gotten their hands on a rundown of the group’s members and, as expected, it features many of the top 135-pound females in the fight-game.
Specifically, the four women waiting to make their debut in the world’s foremost MMA promotion are Germanie de Randamie, Amanda Nunes, Julie Kedzie, and Sarah Kaufman.
Randamie (3-2) is an accomplished Dutch kickboxer, Nunes (7-3) has six strike-based stoppages on her record, and Kedzie (16-11) is one of the most seasoned women in MMA, while Kaufman (15-3) is a former Strikeforce champ with past wins over names like Carmouche and Miesha Tate.
No word was offered on when the quartet will be officially unveiled inside the Octagon. Kaufman and Nunes are both currently scheduled for action on April 5 at Invicta FC 5.
