Ronda Rousey Explains Her Determination To Win Over Dana White | UFC NEWS


“It was a goal of mine from the very beginning actually. I just refused to be ignored pretty much. I said to myself, ‘What would work?’ I just thought, ‘I’m going to make myself so impossible to ignore and make myself into something that they didn’t even know that they needed. Before I became a pro I was saying that, so when I was training for my pro debut at King of the Cage is when I first said it on camera. I said, ‘This guy is going to love me and there’s nothing he can do about it.’ I was so sure. You know, I never doubted it. Gaining the respect of men who didn’t think women belong in a gym is something that I’ve become very good at over the years. He (White) wasn’t the first person to doubt me before he met me. I’m used to changing people’s minds. If you are a woman and you are training, every single time you go into a new environment you have to prove yourself all over again.”

The first ever UFC female champion of the world, Ronda Rousey, tells Southern California’s OC Register about her rise to the top and her determination to win over UFC president Dana White.

Whatever she did, it worked!

    I bet she had to suck some mean **** to convince him! ;)

  2. Trevor says:

    Right…that’s what I’ve been thinking the whole time. Especially now that she’s main event over Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida. Like she’s relatively unknown, especially compared to those two, why else would she be main event.

  3. BD says:

    I guess if you bend over backwards for the boss (pun intended) you get whatever you want, like a ppv event no one Will buy!!!

  4. Diego "Dirty" Sanchez says:

  8. papi says:
