White Weighs In On Rousey’s Star Power: She Will Get The Most Media Coverage In History | UFC NEWS

Let’s face it, there are haters everywhere, from the media to the fans, not everyone is a Ronda Rousey fan.

During this week’s UFC 156 media event, UFC president Dana White defended the criticism and praised his first ever female champion on the record.

“Right now we haven’t even started promoting that fight,” said White. “In the lead up to this fight, you’re going to see coverage of Ronda Rousey like this sport has never seen. She’s going to be everywhere. The Los Angeles Times has been following her for about a month and she’s going to be getting a front page story. HBO Real Sports just got done shooting her, Time Magazine, everyone. The list goes on-and-on. The list of media sources that are going to covering this, no fighter in the history of UFC will have the kind of coverage Ronda will have.

“Nobody ever, if you look at all the guys like Chuck Liddell, Tito, Matt Hughes, nobody in the history of this sport has brought attention to the sport like Ronda Rousey will leading up to that fight. The mainstream media she’ll be pulling is ridiculous. Just the story in Forbes , she’s being put in the company of Durant, LeBron James and Tom Brady. That’s what these dorks on the Internet don’t see.”

Will the coverage go away should she lose?

  3. Bobby says:

    I Rousey looses this fight Womens MMA will die before it even starts

  4. jimmy says:

    I hope ronda looses the fight so dana shuts the fuck up about her

    Dana wants to advertise her as much as possible but it’s just ridiculous now. Like no one really cares and she’s not even that great. Ok she’s good. Olympic medalist and all. But ufc wise. She’s nothing. I’m not impress with her performances. And her mma record isn’t great either. Its mostly because shes hot. Thats why shes so famous. So I really hope carmouche beats her just to stop all this stupidity. Then what is Dana gonna do next. I guess we’ll just have to see


    Caramouche is gonna chow that box.

  7. SlipSlap says:

    The only reason Rousey is still getting so much coverage is because Dana wont stop talking about her. Ok dude, we know you have a ‘thing’ for her, get over it. We’re not that interested until there’s some decent competition in women’s UFC. I for one wouldn’t pay to watch her fight. She’s a one trick pony. Booooring. I’d watch her mud wrestle with Marina Sharif though.

  8. Yep says:

    Amen to slipslap
