Now that Rousey has disposed of Bethe Correia, it was expected a third meeting with Miesha Tate was next for the reigning champion. However, Ortiz recently stated that the UFC offered “Cyborg” a fight with Rousey at AT&T Stadium on December 5th. According to White, that is 100% false.
“That was a complete lie. It’s 100 percent a lie,” White told Yahoo Sports. “First of all, the UFC doesn’t even talk to Tito Ortiz, so let’s start there. But, we haven’t offered any fight to [Justino]. Tito Ortiz is just making this [expletive] up.”
“In no way, shape or form did we offer her a fight against Ronda at Cowboys Stadium,” White continued. “Completely untrue. The problem is, this kind of thing gets out there and picks up momentum when there is no truth to it. And it was just something that he decided to make up. But it’s not true.”
