Dana White: I can see Rousey vs Cyborg as a UFC main event

source: twitter.com

UFC President Dana White appeared on the Dave and Mahoney show on X107.5 today and, like everyone else in MMA, discussed Ronda Rousey.

Well according to the show host Dave Farra, White said Rousey and Cris Cyborg could potentially be the first female athletes to fight in the UFC.

Dave Farra ‏@DaveFarra

Dana White: There's so many good fighters that I enjoy watching, but I'd have to say my favorite to watch are Anderson Silva fights.

Dana White: Yes, I could see @RondaRousey vs. Cyborg as a co-main or main event for a @ufc pay per view. Rousey is incredible.

Relax.....I bumped as WMMA has been a hot topic lately and I like seeing how opinions have changed or remained the same to some fans and this is an old thread so its a good way to compare. Bumping this doesn't make me a RR fan or hater, its more about Danas take on her and the division and Cyborg being a potential fight. If you don't like RR threads then stop clicking and then posting in them, very easy problem to solve.

Thank you for bumping this.I don't think there were enough threads on Rousey, maybe you could bump 3 or 4 more?

Love or Hate, Ronda draws a lot of attention. Even casual fan will tune in.

I feel bad for the women who worked their non-existent balls off in MMA only to be badmouthed and basically laughed at by Dana for years. Poor Mega Megu, who has been armbarring motherfuckers since 2004.

 Not as a main event, but I'd like to see some women's fights on some UFC cards to mix it up a little.

BWAHAHAHAHAZUFFA is DESPERATE!!!!I expect Ronda/Cyborg on a FOX card to save their abysmal ratings.They still cant even get ELite XC ratings.

I think they should test it out with a Fuel TV card first or maybe even an FX card before putting them right away on PPV. If it does well in ratings then I can see them putting title fights being on PPV.

they could do it on one of the Fuel TV shows or whatever or as mentioned, co main event. I think they should. Im really curious to see this striker vs grappler match.
