Motherf**ker, the UFC was about the last organization to allow women to fight in their arena.
hate on Dana White all you want, guys, but the dude is a fckin genious. look how far MMA in general has gotten.
with that being said, i don't blame him for not wanting women initially. there were literally no known women fighters until Strikeforce began advertising them in main cards.
yeah Dana is a douche, but i agree, he gives the fans what they want.
on women's MMA....... Gina Carrano =
but she never took her own fighting career seriously enough to be the face of women's MMA.... she probably understood she had a better future modeling, acting, etc. and stayed with that..... just the sense i got when she fought cyborg.
rousey is just as marketable as Gina and WANTS to fight on top of that. that's really what Dana White saw........
