Dana White Discusses UFC 157’s Rousey vs. Carmouche Bout

February 1, 2013 | Posted by Larry Csonka

– Dana White recently spoke about the impact the Rousey vs. Carmouche fight could have on the UFC. Here are the highlights…

On UFC Getting Coverage in New Places Due to the Fight: “As this thing starts to get closer, you guys will start to see the UFC being talked about and stories being done in places that have never (done UFC stories) before in the history that we’ve owned this company,” White said. “Ronda will be in places that have never been done for MMA before. To me, that’s already a success.”

On Pushing The Women’s Division: “What we’re doing is, we’re actually doing a round table with a bunch of media with all the girls that will be in that division. Trust me – we’ve got plans. It’s funny that people still f—ing doubt us.”

On The PPV Possibly Failing: “People are saying, ‘This is going to be the biggest pay-per-view disaster ever,’ White said. “Honestly, I don’t know what it’s going to do. On pay-per-view, who knows what it’s going to do. But take that away, and it’s a great card. If you’re pissed off and you don’t like women’s fighting, don’t watch the last f—ing fight. The rest of the card has a bunch of great fights on it. I’ve seen Ronda fight, I’ve been to a Ronda fight, and it’s pretty damned exciting. If you’re a fight fan, if you’re really a fight fan, you’re probably going to watch. If you’re a jackass who just likes to talk on the Internet and write stupid stories, you’re probably going to do that, too.”
