Olympic Judoka, Ronda Rousey, will meet Sarah D’Alelio on Strikeforce's Fedor vs Henderson card.

In view of the fact that Chris “Cyborg” Santos has been recently declared a free agent, and most MMA fans have delivered negative comments pertaining to the previous bout promoted by the Zuffa company, one may assume that this is an obvious sign for company’s women’s MMA.

However, last Friday, Strikeforce proved that this is not yet the beginning of an end, as Olympic Judoka – – officially signed for the promotion. After that, was slated for a match against Sarah D’Alelio on July 30’s card.

The Olympic Judoka has been one of the hottest targets of Strikeforce. At a very young age, the female MMA fighter won a Bronze medal during the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing — making her the first American female to have an Olympic award.
