Perception has changed for Dana White when he thinks about women competing for the UFC and gives all the credit to Ronda Rousey (6-0).
“Ronda Rousey changed the entire face of MMA,” said White on Sports Center. She’s special and changed me.”
White cited not enough talented women for the UFC to create a women’s division in the past, but sees Rousey as changing how he thinks.
Rousey is undefeated in her amateur and professional career, where she has won all nine of fights via armbar submission in round one.
“She’s beautiful, which doesn’t hurt, but more importantly she’s a real fighter,” said White. “She gets better every time she fights. When she goes up and faces the best in the world, they know exactly what she’s going to do and how she’s going to beat them, but they can’t stop her. She is unbelievable. I’m a bit more of believer in women’s MMA now.”
