Ronda Rousey Would Like to Open Hispanic Markets for UFC (UFC 170 Video)

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

(MMAWeekly.com video)

UFC president Dana White has said repeatedly that the UFC won’t go to Mexico without heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.

The promotion, however, has another champion that is also of Hispanic descent… women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. And Rousey is more than willing to help the UFC open up various Hispanic markets if given the opportunity.

Rousey discussed the possibilities of doing that at Wednesday’s UFC 170 open workouts and media scrum in Las Vegas. Before she can give much more thought to new markets, she’ll first have to defend her belt against fellow former Olympian Sara McMann in the UFC 170 main event on Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

    Why Cain? He isn’t Mexican.

    • Chicago

      you should show up to the Chicago St. Patrick day parade and try to tell the 30k people that they really aren’t off Irish heritage. I’m sure they will be civil.

  • es el stinko

    shes half. keep that mutt where she is. a true mexican decendent knows about respect. this b][tch has non.

    • horace

      Rousey is into the Diaz brothers twosomes.

  • BIGLOL4Ronda

    First, hanging out with the Diaz bros. does not make you a Hispanic.
    Second, ———- Mexicans don’t know about respect, because they are arrogant fools. They cross the border illegally and go on rants because the US government won’t give them green cards – how does that show respect? On top of that they go on protests claiming Texas, Arizona and California still belong to them when that’s not the case anymore.
    Third, if UFC wants to break the Latino Market Mexico is not Latin America is only a small part. They should think out of the box and not be like Univision or Telemundo who all they care about is reaching the Mexican market only and not the Latino market in general; which there’s a big difference!!!
    And fourth, Ronda looks so white, there’s no way she can represent Latinos and her attitude doesn’t help anyway.

    And enough said!

    • MuayThaiFood

      Curious…why would you think Rousey fighting Cyborg in Brazil = Hispanic glory?

      • horace

        In Brazil they speak Spanish and if your brown skinned and speak Spanish call it Hispanic. Brazilians/Mexicans/Columbians/cubans/Puerto Ricans/argentines/ all the bottom of the same hispanic barrel.

        • JDMMA

    Btw it’ll be interesting if the event will be related to TUF: Latin America like with the finals of the season.

  • MuayThaiFood

    Newsflash Rhonda: Rio is in Brazil which is not a Hispanic country. It was colonized by Portuguese, not Spaniards, and they don’t speak Spanish or “Brazilian”, they speak Portuguese. You’re as dumb as your face is fat.

    • horace
