Currently the UFC only features one weight division in regards to women’s MMA, bantamweight, but UFC President Dana White believes it is only a matter of time before they expand:

“You would think so,” White stated when asked by mmajunkie.com if he expected to add more women’s divisions to the UFC. “If you think about it, when we started this company, we had heavyweights, light heavyweights, middleweights and welterweights. That was it. When we brought in the 155-pound division, everybody was like, ‘This is crazy. They’re too small. Nobody will ever watch.’

“The evolution of this sport as it’s continued to grow, we’ve been adding weight classes, and the sport keeps getting bigger. There are more and more talented guys in all those weight classes. The same thing will happen with the women.”

What are your thoughts Penn Nation? Would you like to see some more women’s divisons added to the UFC in the near future? Let’s hear it!
