UFC president Dana White made a statement of sorts Thursday night after it was reported that Strikeforce would close up shop following a January card. The same report also stated that Ronda Rousey, one of the fastest rising stars in all of MMA, would become the first-ever UFC female champion.

Strikeforce is set to air January 12 with three championship matches. Also, Daniel Cormier will compete on the card from Oklahoma City. It is likely that several of those that fight on at that event will eventually enter the ranks of the UFC.
