Dana: I'd take Ronda Rousey against anybody

“She’s changing the way we look at women,” said UFC president Dana White, as transcribed by Washington Post's Rick Maese. “And she’s changing the way women look at themselves, definitely little girls. When we were growing up, you were told, ‘You little girls play over here and boys play over here.’ Ronda Rousey smashes that whole thing.”

“The thing that’s scary is, Ronda’s still learning. Every time Ronda comes out, she looks better. She came in here as a judo fighter. Well, now she’s becoming a well-rounded fighter.”

“In the history of the world, there’s never been a situation where a woman could kick a man’s ass. Ever. Now there is. I’d take Ronda Rousey against anybody, man.”

dana's a pussy, and could still tool ronda.

mouthpiece gonna piece.

Just stop Dana.

Reminds me of an adult wrestling coach drilling with a 10 year old. Giving him/her just enough to keep them working but always being one step ahead.

^^^The video.

Lmao "in the history of the world"

I'd pick Cyborg over Dana. Phone Post 3.0

Oh, Dana.

Until there's an open gender grand prix this whole thing needs to fuck off...

He's a promoter what do you expect him to say Phone Post

sockeye - but yet won't make the Cyborg fight

 

can people just shut up about this. Cyborg is not the best women fighter on the planet and Ronda doesn't have to fight her if she doesn't come down. Fighting cyborg does nothing for her career other than shut up the stupid people. Why on God's green earth should she move up? To face a cheater who doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as her? Let Cyborg move down or just shut up. People are thick.


 

People seem to have forgotten about this, but when Ronda announced that she was dropping to 135, the near-consensus at the time was that she was doing so to avoid Cyborg. While I think that Ronda would beat her today, especially at 135, let's stop acting like the onus has always been on Cyborg to drop down a weight class in order to face someone soooo much better than she is.

Yeah,Ronda is fighting tomorrow night,so the hyperbole is maginfied times 10.

Talking about people she can actually fight is a good start. He can say whatever he wants, really, and the rest of us can do the same thing. Like: this whole thing can fuck off. Tired of hearing it.

Guess we know who Brock's first opponent is gonna be... Phone Post 3.0

There isn't enough information about trained men fighting trained women to be certain that Honda could or couldn't handle Michael McDonald, Bryan Carraway, or an Eddie Wineland.  The 135 division isn't exactly stacked with killers.  And it's crazy to bring up Mousasi who easily outweighs her by 50 pounds, or Gil or even BJ who are world class grappler motherfuckers with serious weight and muscle advantage.

Shinya Aoki getting absolutely ragdolled by Fedor.  OMG!  Shinya Aoki is showing he can't handle fighting other lightweight men if he can't roll with Fedor:

OMG!  Fedor absolutely toys with Mousasi in this friendly exhibition match then armbars him after a couple minutes because he's not even worth the time to put on much of a show for the fans:

Then she got caught cheating and Ronda became the face of womens MMA. Times change and now the onus is on Cyborg to adapt to the realities of womens mma, if she wants a big payday.
