March 15 (UPI) -- With Ronda Rousey on the decline, the UFC needs a new female star.

Could MMA's next leading lady be the 'Catch Me Outside' girl a.k.a. Danielle Bregoli? A certain UFC champion believes so.

During an interview with Ariel Helwani Monday on The MMA Hour, Demetrious Johnson said that Bregoli could be a huge draw. He said her audience could even eclipse Rousey's.

"I guarantee you if you get her some gloves and put her in the Octagon, she would be the highest selling pay-per-view fighter in the world," Johnson said, via MMA Fighting and BloodyElbow.com. "She'd probably do way more numbers than Ronda. Just because she brings drama and negativity to wherever she goes."

Johnson, a.k.a. Mighty Mouse, is 25-2-1. The current Flyweight champion last beat Tim Elliott on Dec. 3 by unanimous decision. Bregoli has virtually no fighting experience, at least inside of the Octagon.

There is also the fact that she is only 13-years-old and her claim to fame was an appearance on the Dr. Phil show.

Rousey has spent her off time on the sets of movies and television shows. UFC president Dana White and her fellow fighters think her comeback is a long shot.
