They were in negotiations with Sara MacMann and for some reason the fight was not made.
Do you have actual facts to say that everybody ducked Rousey, and only carmouche accepted???
I do not hate Rousey at all. I hate her personality, but that is a whole different thing. She is a great fighter (at least in the ground), and it is great that she will be in the UFC.
She received the UFC belt without 1 single fight within the org (To the people that love to remind that Aldo and Cruz received the same treatment, I also disagreed with that decision), and now she will be in the main event against a girl that has nothing to do there.
I could understand the decision to make her fight in the main event if her opponent was Cyborg Santos, because it would be the biggest WMMA fight of all time and everybody wants to see that fight. However she is fighting Liz Carmouche, this is an absolute mismatch.
My hate is no towards Rousey, I don't like her personality at all, but at least she is a professional athlete and I respect her for that.
My hate is towards Dana White who constantly disrespects the fighters and fans.
So because Cyborg said she would finally fight at 135 but it would take "some time" Rousey (who is the champion) must sit out and wait for the challenger that is Cyborg? Makes sense I guess?
Meisha Tate SAID she didn’t get offered the fight so this MUST be true? And Dana is going out of his way to lie to the media and say he offered her the fight, come on dude take your Dana white hate blinders off its starting to
affect your judgement.
Sara MacMann negotiations fell through, we can guess for days why that happened, but if you are offered a title fight your answer should always be YES. Why would anyone in their right mind turn down a title fight, if they were not in fact ducking the Champion? Everyone says GSP is ducking Hendricks, yet you will sit there and actually argue that these women aren’t ducking Rousey? You don’t actually believe that do you?
The fact that she was given the belt is irrelevant. She is clearly the champion of the 135 division, just like Aldo was (and still is) and just like Cruz was (and still is).
Championship fights are the main event; get over it, even if the challenger is "unworthy" of being there as you put it.
