Prior to its folding and absorption by the UFC, Ronda Rousey was the Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion. Rousey was eventually awarded the inaugural UFC Women's Bantamweight Championship on December 6, 2012, at the UFC on Fox: Henderson vs Diaz pre-event press conference.


After a reign of 1,074 days, Rousey lost the Bantamweight Championship to Holly Holm at UFC 193. Holm lost the title to Miesha Tate, who was defeated by the current champion Amanda Nunes for the title, at UFC 196. Nunes has defended her title against the likes of Ronda Rousey, Valentina Shevchenko, Raquel Pennington, Holly Holm and Germaine De Randamie. Nunes has been the incumbent title holder for 1,702 days and counting, a record in UFC Women's Championship history.
