I hate to admit it, but it seems women mixed martial arts is the UFC’s biggest market and attraction these days.
Ronda Rousey has become the UFC’s biggest star due to her antics and way of finishing fights. She gets it done when she goes in there. None of this boring lay and pray homoerotic stuff or low level stand and jab boxing that most of these UFC male champions do.
After signing the tough Holly Holm (a former boxing champion from Invicta), Dana White has set his sights on Gina Carano according to ESPN:
“One down, one to go,” White said. “I’m going to meet with Gina next week and get that f—ing thing done. Next week, man.
“It’s just a matter of me and Lorenzo going to jump on a plane to Los Angeles, get in a room with her and her lawyer and get this thing done.”
Right, that doesn’t sound dirty at all. Who doesn’t want to jump on a plane, get in a room with her and her lawyer?
Carano is already a big name and downright gorgeous. The men love tuning in to watch her fight. She fought on CBS a few times back in the days EliteXC was still around with Kimbo Slice and people knew who she was.
With some solid marketing expect a lot to tune in to watch Rousey fight both Holly Holm and Gina Carano.
Again, more than Mighty Mouse Johnson or Chris Weidman who no one would care to watch fight except their ten fans. It shows why Dana White is hyping up Ronda Rousey storylines left, right, and center.
