After Tate vs. Rousey Dana White A Fan Of WMMA


“When you talk about women’s MMA, I say the same thing all the time, there are not enough good women to create an entire division [in the UFC],But every once in a while there will be a fight, and Miesha Tate vs. Ronda Rousey was that fight. I mean… Miesha Tate, she’s one of the best in the world in her weight class, she’s tough and she’s nasty man. I mean to sit there, I know what it’s like to be in an arm bar, I tell you what, I would have tapped to what she didn’t tap to.”

“So as much as you heard me say two minutes ago how stupid it is not to tap you gotta respect it too,” he continued. “And she got out of that first arm bar, it would be one thing if she got in that first arm bar and was like ‘I’m not tapping.’ She got out of that first one and when Ronda Rousey gets you in an arm bar, that’s serious shit. I’ll tell you right now and I will be 100% honest with you, I was never a fan [of women's MMA]. But I will tell you this, being honest, Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate have changed my mind, they have changed my mind. I was excited for that fight, it was an awesome fight, they both looked like two skilled mixed martial artists and they changed my mind.”

“So If more Miesha Tate’s and more Ronda Rousey’s keep popping up, the answer is yes [to a female division in the UFC].”

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Great news for womans MMA now lets just hope he doesn’t let thta FREAKOIDED STEROIDED BEAST back in Zuffa. no friggen way that SHE-MAN should be put in cage with REAL WOMAN. I would bet anything that BEAST would crush Kenny Florian and many other Fabers, males the same size. Yes I know faber is only 5’2″ but he weighs about same when he’s not training as cyborg

  1. Rondo says:

    Let’s get real…if its free maybe a guy might watch it, I certainly would never buy a wmma ppv no matter which biaatch may be fighting!

    • Vaygus says:

      I didn’t see anything referring to there being an entire UFC WMMA card or anything of the nature in the article, so not sure what you’re addressing. Are you addressing the fact that if the UFC does bring in a women’s division and a fight is featured on the card, you won’t buy the card? Or are you referring to an exclusive female only fight card?

      Regardless, there’s plenty of male promotions out there I won’t watch. I’ve tried, and it just doesn’t grab me or entertain me because the skill level is just not up to par to either be competitive enough, or the lack of skill puts a halt on any enjoyment factor.

      As long as the athletes competing are skilled, I could care less which sex they are. I’d rather two skilled women have a competitive bout than a lot of potential male matchups out there. Just sayin.

  2. Miesha Tate's arm says:

    Dana, suck my bloody elbow

  3. Drew says:

    I want to see an all women’s TUF!

  4. Ya, i can see Dan Miller dressed up in a pink tu-tu and white tights.

    Now there’s a gal needs some serious training in martial arts. Yo, Steven! Pink tu-tu on line 3!
