Now Duke and Shafir will begin training at the WWE Performance Center with hopes of one day joining the WWE roster alongside their Four Horsewomen teammates in Rousey and Baszler.

On Monday, WWE revealed that Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke reported to the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, to begin their transition into professional wrestling.

Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler, two of the Four Horsewomen of MMA, will be joined in the WWE by their other members soon.

Duke fought in the UFC from 2012 to 2016 as a bantamweight and was a member of "Team Rousey" in the UFC's Ultimate Fighter competition in 2013.

Duke and Shafir have appeared on several WWE programs, including the Mae Young Classic previous year where they showed support to Baszler, and along with Rousey had a face-to-face confrontation with several members of WWE's Four Horsewomen.

With Rousey and Baszler now having success in their own respective brands of Monday Night Raw and NXT, it's only a matter of time before Duke and Shafir follow suit.

Shafir, known by the nickname "The Supernova from Moldova", has fought under the banners of Invicta and Lights Out Promotions. She also appeared on "Who is Roderick Strong?", a video package about the life of NXT Superstar Roderick Strong, who she is now engaged to.

Following their confrontation with WWE's Four Horsewomen during the Mae Young Classic, fans can now salivate at the fact we may actually get the eight women tag team match they've been waiting for. This took place at the Mae Young Classic in the summer of 2017, where Duke, Shafir, and Rousey supported Baszler as she made her way to the tournament's finals.

Baszler has since reached the top of the NXT's Women's Division, recently defeating Ember Moon at NXT Takeover: New Orleans to capture her first title.

With Duke and Shafir now preparing to conquer a new world of combat sports, will it be long before they add to Baszler and Rousey's already incredible list of accomplishments in the ring?
