DFW: Hate for women in sports 'sickening'

 

"There's no doubt about it," said Dana White. "This was one of the biggest moments in sports. I've never had so much media around one event. SportsCenter was live tweeting about it.

"But in 2013, I never realized the hate some guys have about women in sports. It's sickening. And tonight, the main event was one of the best fights of the night."

What do you think UG? Great night for the universe, or what?

I don't think it's a hate, it's more like a lack of interest.

Yeah he had to expect people to be hesitant on Ronda being given a belt than placed in the main event for her debut Phone Post

Isnt Dana the guy who originally scoffed at the idea of women in the octagon? Funny how some dollar signs can change his mind really quickly

There is some real hate out there. Even on these forums.

This. DFW is just misrepresenting people's opinions in order to make his own stance look better. Nothing new here.

Didn't this guy says women would never be in the UFC at one point?

I'm a WNBA season ticket holder and I agree. GET WITH THE TIMES, the girls are every bit as exciting as the guys.

I liked it better when he said we will never see women in the UFC.

This. I'm not into amateur MMA either due to the lower level of skill. Same for WMMA. It is like watching teenage boys try to punch each other underwater.

1 year ago Dana was one of the people who hated on women's sports. I guess now that he made a couple dollars of it he's changed his tune. I bet if each of the "haters" got a fat cheque each time a women's sporting event happened, they wouldn't be hating. Phone Post

to those saying he's a hypocrite cause he knows it will make money. DUHHHHH it's a business he's making money so yes money talks. Is this a surprise to anyone? And is this such a crime? I think the ones calling him a hypocrite are the real hypocrites. To act like you wouldn't take any amount of money to go against something you said a long time ago is hypocritical either that or you're stupid. If someone told me ill give you a million dollars to say I like cheese when i hate it I'd do it in a heart beat! Phone Post

It is fine that he changed his mind. The problem is going off on other people for holding the same opinion that he once held himself.

I think for some people who have been WMMA supporters all along while he was acting like it was a joke that would never have a place in the UFC it's just a little headshake-worthy to see him all sprung on it now because it's making him money. I'm still really glad he came around though, no matter the reason.

Will it make money? Maybe in the short run but i don't really see there being much success unless there's like a Gina comeback.

butthurt for my frankie - You can't put a dollar sign on integrity,girl. Phone Post
That's your choice
Person A with integrity calls person B a sell out. Person B calls person A stupid for not taking the money.
I'm not saying integrity isn't important but in this case I don't think it's that serious. And people believe oh I wouldn't do that. Well how do you know if you weren't in that situation. Example lord of flies great movie that shows the true nature of humans Phone Post

Well it's not really hypocritical to call Dana out on his BS. Yeah he's obviously making money, and it does make the UFC look good that they're being open to change, open to gay fighters and both genders fighting so it will probably indirectly help them regardless.

But he did say it will never happen, and now is trying to trash people who aren't interested in watching it.

I would probably watch a WMMA card if i knew some of the names, but i don't think i'd spend money for a PPV, and there are seemingly a lot of fans in the same boat.

I know dana has been to a couple of lakers games, why not any sparks games?

Yes he's obviously just trying to promote his product, but it comes off as stupid when he attacks people for having the exact view point he had a few months ago.

 

Keep up the vids with pat.

This.

Whether Dana is a hypocrite is besides the point. His statement is still true.

There is some real hate out there (and easily found on this forum). Sad but true.

The women represented themselves incredibly well last night and in the lead up to the fight. Congratulations them - they made history.
