White: Rousey is my new Chuck Liddell
Chuck Liddell became popular in the UFC because of his hard overhand right and his “anywhere, anytime” approach to other fighters. At the TUF Nations Finale, Dana White mentioned that Ronda Rousey, because of her similar go-getter attitude, is his new Chuck Liddell.
“Because Ronda called me and said, ‘I wanna fight,’” said White while answering questions about why he chose Alexis Davis next for the champion.
“Ronda is my new Chuck Liddell. She will fight anybody, anywhere, anytime. She wants to stay busy. She wants to keep fighting.”
And it seems like Dana doesn’t have much of a choice when it comes to her desire and her frequency.
“You tell her she can’t fight, she’ll say ‘(Expletive) you! I wanna fight.’ She wants to fight. She’ll fight back-to-back. She’ll fight on 24 hours notice. She’s the new Chuck Liddell.”
