    Did you happen to catch the first question that guy asked Dana? Was curious to what fight they were talking about.

      Mirsad Bektic vs. Chas Skelly

      Skelly kneed Bektic in the head while his hand was touching the ground, but the ref only took 1 point away from Skelly.

        ahh ok. I most the fights. Must have missed that one.

    Right…Gina Carano…hasn’t fought for five years. Still totally relevant(insert huge eyeroll).

    But Ronda wont fight Cyborg. Makes total sense…/sarcasm

    The women’s division is a huge joke, and Dana is making the UFC more like WWE with this nonsense.

      Not fighting Cyguy before she has fought a couple times in UFC at 135, while being tested makes perfect sense, Carano does not.

      • Piotr

        Why? Gina Carano has NEVER even fought in the UFC either and hasn’t even been active for 5 years. This is such a joke, and any of you buying it will just eat up anything they serve.

          I didn’t word that very clearly. I meant that it makes sense to not take the fight with have Cyborg before she fights 1-3 times in UFC. AND that it does not make sense to give Carano and instant title shot.

  • aaron gustaveson

    White is dramatically overestimating Carnos celebrity. A role in part 6 of the worst movie franchise in human history does not make you a celebrity. There is no justification to giving Carano a fight over any of the women currently in the UFC.

      Why? Carano has NEVER fought in the UFC and hasn’t even fought for 5 years. This is such a joke, and any of you buying it will just eat up anything they serve.

    It doesn’t make any sense to bring back someone after five years, that didn’t leave as champ, and give them a title shot. Oh wait, yes it does. There aren’t any names in WMMA to fight Rousey.

    • Piotr

      Well, there’s one, but Rousey is scared to death of her.
