    It's moments like these where you just see how out of touch with reality, or how full of shit, Dana White really is. Ronda doesn't break the Top 20 in Biggest Stars of UFC History. Forget being the biggest.

    Exactly. Curious to see how ppv buys are going to be. My money is on it tanking. My money is also staying in my wallet this time around. Been awhile since I skipped out.

    Ditto. The last time I skipped a PPV was 108 but I have zero interest in ever watching another Rousey fight so I'll be skipping this one.

    Damn, a lot of Ronda hate in this thread.

    I get she says some stupid shit and Dana White has an unreasonable size hard on for her but I still enjoy watching her fight.

    I am amazed by her judo skills and throws, plus I think the armbar gimmick makes for fun fights... "Is she gonna land it?"

    The little lady enjoys watching women's and even now some men's mma since Ronda has been on the scene so I have to give Rousey some props.

    I am hoping for less. I really want Dana to realize how much he overrates the popularity of Ronda.

    He certainly should promote her to the best of his ability, but not at the expense of other fighters. The way he's promoting her is unbelievably egregious. PPV buys, sponsorships, Q score, general name recognition or however you choose to rate her, she most certainly is not the biggest current star in the UFC. As for the greats that came before her and paved the way in the UFC...well I hope each one of them slaps Dana next time they see him.
