Bellator Boss Shuts Down Dana – Ronda Not MMA’s Top Star

Before her crushing defeat over Sarah McMann, UFC President Dana White called, Ronda Rousey MMA’s biggest star.

While her pay-per-view numbers, still leave room for improvement, her ability to land leading roles in major motion pictures is a feat not easily matched.

Still though, Bjorn Rebney, Bellator’s CEO, isn’t buying it:

“I would never want to verbalize disrespect for a fighter … but to characterize her as the biggest star in MMA is, I believe, a little disrespectful to a lot of fighters who have put in year after year after year in this game. If Ronda fights ‘Cyborg’ and she could beat ‘Cyborg,’ I think that would be a big statement as to where she is in the game. But to characterize her as the biggest star is a bit disingenuous. I think there are a lot of huge stars in MMA.”
