There could be a HUGE new star in the world of women's MMA -- because the U.S. Olympian who just won the gold medal in wrestling says she's open to the idea of getting in the cage. 

We spoke with Helen Maroulis -- the 24-year-old phenom who dominated the world at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio -- and asked her straight up if MMA is in her future. 

Maroulis made it clear wrestling is her main priority and first love ... but says a transition to MMA is definitely a possibility down the road. 

The best part of the video ... Maroulis says she'll 100% return to the Olympics in 2020 to defend her title.
