Dana White: Rousey’s Sportsmanship Different Than Richard Sherman

“Nope [I didn’t say anything to Ronda Rousey about not shaking Miesha Tate’s hand after UFC 168]. That was her own decision. It’s not about being an ungracious winner … Ronda said it best. She said, ‘I didn’t like her before the fight, I definitely don’t like her after the fight, and nobody is going to boo me into shaking her hand.’ Period. End of story. And as far as the Richard Sherman thing goes, that was awesome! The guy has probably been playing football since he was eight years old, dreamed about going to the Super Bowl and goes head-to-head against the guy who was trash talking him. And he pulls off, in my opinion, the best play of the game to send his team to the Super Bowl — that was a touchdown pass. He was fired up, got on TV (watch him lose his mind here) and let everyone know about it. I wish the Patriots were that fired up that day…. I disagree (that I would publicly support anything Ronda did). I’m sure there a lot of things she could do that I wouldn’t publicly support, but [the no handshake] isn’t one of them. She hates Miesha Tate … they don’t like each other. Ronda is mean and nasty, that’s who she is. And she couldn’t care less what anyone thinks.”

This one’s for the football fans.

If you saw last weekend’s game between the Seahawks and the ‘Niners’ and you watched it through, we at home got a surprising and unexpected dose of Richard Sherman (pictured).

Not only did Sherman synch up Seattle’s bid to the Superbowl, but he then proceeded to go absolutely nutty on the field and to the FOX media crew standing by.

People are calling him a poor sport. But the UFC boss says no way is Sherman like Rousey.

      Dude, crawl out of the stone age. THe women put on some bad ass fights, even if they are not technically as sound as most of the mens fights, but they will get there. You sound like you think women should be barefoot and pregnant. That time has passed. Come evolve with the rest of us my friend. No disrespect intended to you, by the way.

    • Trent Hilker says:

      I’m sorry, did you just say that football is more manly than the UFC? Please explain how men dressed in full protective gear, (helments, pads, etc.) partake in a more manly sport that men who wear nothing but 4 oz. gloves and FIGHT for a living. You just made yourself look like a bitch.

  2. T.Daddy says:

    Everybody hates on Dana and Rousey yet you still watch the UFC. If it’s that bad don’t watch it then a-holes

    Soooo Richard shermans the devils contrast now? Cmon it wasn’t that serious it was more funny than anything else… Worse has been said in the NFL. Relax people

  4. Briar says:

    Rousy’s lack of class will keep me from watching her again.

  5. Fred Baden Agvald says:

    I’m pretty sure Manning was just as pumped as Sherman about going to the Super Bowl, but he acted like a true gentleman during his interview. Sherman could have a million different things to express his excitement, but calling Crabtree a “sorry ass receiver” after Crabtree put on a great game and great season. That just makes Sherman another immature, douchebag who can’t handle himself in front of the camera. Also, Ronda has every right to snub Miesha at the end of that fight after all the shit that girl has pulled against Rousey, her family and her team.

    • Trent Hilker says:

      I’m pretty sure you’re wrong. About Sherman and manning that is. I completely agree with you about Tate and Rousey. But Manning has been to the superbowl. Manning is recognized as one of the best QB’s to ever play the game. So I really don’t see how Manning would have been as excited/pumped up ( or whatever you want to call it) as Sherman. People expect greatness from Manning. Sherman on the other hand, was picked up in the 5th round of the draft and nobody expected greatness from him. So obviously he was more pumped up about going to the superbowl than Manning.

      ummm…I don’t think Manning went into the game with someone talking s*** to him like Sherman did.—Dont-mess-with-Sherman-241238021.html
