Female mixed martial arts star Ronda Rousey said it would be “totally cool” to become the first woman to sign with a new women’s division of the UFC, but she wouldn’t confirm a deal.

TMZ reported that Rousey, the Strikeforce female bantamweight champion, officially joined the UFC and that Strikeforce would cease operations by mid-January.

UFC officials aren’t talking. Rousey, who has three fights left to go in her Strikeforce contract, refused to confirm the news.

“Seems totally cool,” Rousey said. “I would like it to be that way. I haven’t signed any bout agreements. I don’t know exactly what’s going on yet. I know just as much as everybody else knows right now.”

Rousey, 25, has become a major star, capturing the 135-pound title with a first-round submission over Miesha Tate in March.
