Dana White: 'No way' Ronda Rousey retires in two years


Ronda Rousey stirred up the fans and media last week when she commented that she may only have two years left of fighting left, but UFC President Dana White was quick to dismiss that notion:

Asked by reporters at Thursday's UFC on Fight Night press conference at the Wang Center whether she thinks Rousey will go ahead and retire in two years, White was blunt: "There's no way in hell," White said.

Rousey, who defends her title against Miesha Tate at UFC 168, has roles lined up in "The Expendables 3" and "Fast and Furious 7." White, however, has seen several fighters get sidetracked by Hollywood and is convinced Rousey isn't going anywhere.

"I don't care what Hollywood offers, they're ain't paying what we're paying," White said. "These guys, when they go out and make a movie, they're not paying what we are."

As for Rousey's Twitter rant, White, who has been known to engage in a Twitter kerfluffle or two of his own, had a bit of advice: Stay offline if you're having a bad day.

"If you want to be on Twitter, get ready," White said. "Put your big-girl boots on. Get ready, because s--- coming at you. Any time you're in the public, with social media, and the internet or anywhere else, people are going to say stupid shit to you. No matter what, it's going to happen. You can't snap and flip out on everybody any time they do. She'll learn that, she's still young."

BLAF sold out plain and simple. Also needs to takes his balls out of the collective WMMA purse.There's a very, very small percentage of skilled well rounded WMMA fighters. I'm not watching it and sure as hell would never pay.

She won't be as successful and Gina, who is attractive and has a body.Unless she acts ungodly well (something tells me she can't) she might as well stick to fighting and talking endless miles of shit.

There's always someone bigger.  The UFC is a big fish in a small pond.  Just as many say that Bellator needs to accept that they are a feeder org to the UFC, the UFC needs to accept thatt their biggest stars will look to capitalize on their fame and jump to the next level of entertainment which is Hollywood .

^^i'm pretty sure he already has.  she just didn't realize it wasn't a "take the money and run" type of deal.  popularity has gone to her head and now she's thinking Hollywood is hers for the taking, lol.  reality check coming

she's mean... she's nasty..., she's lucrative....    in Dana's defense what a fuck you from Ronda if she did retire in 2 with all the paved gold roads he made just for her.  her life with Dana vs her life without? now there's loyalty for you.  really says bad things about her character to even openly contemplate an early exit

There are female fighters in the UFC that can beat her right now. The Meisha Tate rematch will be her last fight IMO.
