Joe Rogan: UFC has 'huge announcement' regarding next Ronda Rousey fight and 'it's going to be crazy'

Zip up those straight jackets, fight fans, shit is about to get crazy.


Hold on to your butts.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is going to make a "huge announcement" regarding women's mixed martial arts (MMA) in the next week (give or take a few days) and "it's going to be crazy." But don't take my word for it, as UFC color commentator Joe Rogan teased the news during his recent appearance on KROQ's Kevin & Bean Show.

Host: "There is no one good for Ronda Rousey to fight!"

Joe Rogan: "Ohhhh ... you're so incorrect. I wish I could tell you what I know!"

The rest of his comments, helpfully transcribed by MMA Fighting:

"I wish I could tell you what I know. I wish I could tell you. I know some secret stuff. I know some secret stuff, but I can't tell you. You might actually know, but I can't tell you. I can say no more than I've already said. I will tell you this ... within the next probably week or so a huge announcement will come about women's fighting... It's going to be crazy. Madness. I wish I could [talk about it now], but I would betray the confidence of my friend and employer."


Naturally, you can't talk about women's MMA without talking about undefeated UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. And when you talk about "Rowdy," chances are you also talk abut Cris Cyborg, who is likely the last remaining threat to the Olympian's throne.

But that doesn't mean the Brazilian is signing on the dotted line, even with these recent comments.

After all, there is a lot more to female fighting than a potential Cyborg "super fight" -- as we already learned in late 2013 -- so there could be any number of possibilities. Perhaps former Strikeforce headliner Gina Carano is going on the Dolce Diet and making her MMA return?

Or Holly Holm has graduated to the big leagues?

The possibilities are endless ... so until we know for sure, let's hear your best guess.
