White: ‘Ronda doesn’t get respect she deserves because she’s a woman’
“She’s higher than number nine in the pound-for-pound. She’s undefeated, she’s finished every fight in devastating fashion, but it’s still a man’s world, man. The media is never going to put her higher up in the rankings. The media decides it, and Ronda, being a woman, has had to fight harder. If there was a guy that was on the streak that Ronda was on, he’d be the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world, like that. But because she’s a woman, these guys aren’t going to give her the credit she deserves.”
In a recent interview with UFC.com, UFC President Dana White discussed his bantamweight champ, Ronda Rousey, and her place on the media’s pound-for-pound list.
Rousey currently sits at 9 on the UFC’s official p4p rankings.
