White couldn’t be happier with decision to feature women
On Feb. 23, women’s MMA will debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championship at UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche. The historic event is headlined by the first female bout and title fight under the UFC brand.
Some have been critical about the UFC bringing in a women’s division, but Dana White couldn’t be happier with the decision.
“I’ve heard some flack about the girls. Their mitt work is better than half the (expletive) guys. Their hands are great. They’re well-rounded. They represent the sport well. They represent themselves well,” said the UFC president following UFC on Fuel TV 7 in London on Feb. 16. “I couldn’t be happier that I made the decision, and I couldn’t be happier with the fight.”
