White Praises Rousey: She Is The Greatest Athlete I’ve Ever Worked With
UFC President Dana White praised UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey during a media event at UFC Fight Night Dublin, even going as far as to say that Rousey is the greatest athlete that he has ever worked with.
â€śSheâ€™s (expletive) fascinating. Sheâ€™s the greatest athlete Iâ€™ve ever worked with on every level,â€ť said UFC president Dana White while in Dublin for UFC Fight Night 46. (Watch Whiteâ€™s full video interview here.)
â€śEverybody talks about how Iâ€™m always Ronda this and Ronda that. Itâ€™s hard not to be Ronda this and Ronda that when you deal with her,â€ť
â€śLook at the attention she gets. We have her doing all this crazy (expletive). Sheâ€™s going to China in a couple of weeks. She just hand knee surgery, and sheâ€™s got her hand casted. Sheâ€™s going to China with me. Sheâ€™s got to go down to Brazil and do a bunch of stuff in Brazil. The girl never stops. Sheâ€™s got to promote all of her movies and do all of that stuff. Itâ€™s unbelievable,â€ť
â€śHow about this, she got an ESPY. She opted to get her surgeries instead, to get them done and healed faster instead of doing the whole ESPY thing,â€ť said White. â€ťThatâ€™s a huge dealâ€¦ Nobody gets it more than she does.â€ť
Hype for Rousey is at an all time high with several movie releases, being the first UFC fighter to win an ESPY, and a potential fight with WMMA pioneer Gina Carano on the horizon. It is safe to say Ronda Rousey isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
