Pros react to Ronda Rousey's UFC signing

Greg Bartram-US PRESSWIRE

Less than 24 hours after Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey signed with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), her fellow mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters took to Twitter to sound off on "Rowdy's" historic career move.

What happens when mixed martial arts (MMA) news breaks?

It tears across the world of social media like wild fire, and yesterday's announcement that Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey was bound for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was about as big as it gets.

Seems like everyone has an opinion on it, too.

Our good friends over at MMA Fighting compiled a list of Twitter reactions to the news that "Rowdy" was abandoning her sinking ship, which will disappear under the tides of combat sports shortly after January 12, 2013 in Oklahoma, where Showtime is expected to broadcast its final Strikeforce event.

Here's what some of the pros are saying about the move.

We've heard the pros reactions, now let's hear yours. Good or bad thing for MMA?
