– Dana White is impressed by Cynthia Calvillo’s call-out of Tatiana Suarez and is of a mind to give her the fight. Calvillo called for a fight with Suarez after her defeat of Cortney Caset at UFC on ESPN 1 and while Suarez said she would rather have a contender fight, White told reports that he respected the call-out.

“I’m going to tell you this: Nobody’s calling out Tatiana,” White said (per MMAjunkie). “Listen to me, we’re in matchmaking meetings every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday now. Nobody will fight her. Everybody is turning her down, Tatiana, and Cynthia calls her out. I love it. I respect it very much, and I might give it to her.”

He went on to add, “Nobody wants to fight Tatiana. Not one person in the top-15 wants to fight this girl. Cynthia actually calls her out, which is pretty incredible.”
