UFC president Dana White admits his stance on women’s MMA hadn’t changed much over the last few years until the arrival of Ronda Rousey in Strikeforce.

The way Rousey destroyed the competition and then launched a verbal attack on anyone standing in her way appealed to White, and he knew he had a legitimate star on his hands.

Rousey has since signed and eight-fight contract with the UFC.

“The reason we have women’s MMA now is because of her," said White on Thursday. "If you’re thinking it’s because she’s attractive, and this and that, and that’s all great, but you hear the way this girl talks? She is a Diaz brother inside."

“None of them have what this one has, she’s nasty, she’s mean. She would actually fight a guy if that was the case, if that was what it takes to get into the UFC, she’d do it.”

“One thing we all know, anything can happen in there. I don’t predict who is going to win and lose anymore."

“This could last for years; this could last a year."

Pretty sure when Ronda's not on top anymore they will cancel the women's division.

I was generally with Matt Hughes on WMMA, until RR. She's just too fascinating.

Urijah would most likely knock her head off, but still somehow manage to not win the belt. Phone Post

You can tell Dana loves the Diaz brothers and Ronda is Dana's dream: Diaz Chael Sonnen rolled into one. Mean, nasty, entertaining and also very articulate. Phone Post

Hence claimin everyone turned down the fight with her when most likely they hand picked her opponent.
After ronda armbars her next opponent, Dana will say he hasn't talked to cyborg about the fight yet. Phone Post

Actually I think it's reversed: Dana would fight a guy to get Rousey into the UFC.

The UFC is notorious for giving people second chances. Cyborg should be no different.

yeah, it doesnt sound nor look good.  after years of developing female mma on showtime the best fight they can put on for it's debut in the UFC comes with a -1500 line on Ronda..

and look at all these drama queens like cyborg, mcmann and tate whining.

We watch and are into MMA to get away from all the nagging.

It's interesting, I'm curious to see how this whole womans division in the UFC unfolds. Personally, I still don't think there's a deep enough talent pool to keep it going. But I hope I'm proven wrong.

Anyone who really believes that a female has any sort of chance against a male professional fighter is suffering from an unhealthy and female dominated delusional upbringing. In fact, a non combat male professional athlete from any physically demanding sport would murder Rousey in the cage.

The reality is that as important as technique is, it is not enough when the pure strength and testosterone fueled aggression differential is what it is between a man and a woman.

There would be no armbars, no triangles, just bloody savage donky kong hammerfist murder.
