Dana White: Ronda Rousey will have to do media again after this fight

Today UFC President Dana White was open with media about recent concerns over Ronda Rousey’s refusal to do media leading up to Friday’s UFC 207 fight card.

According to White, new owners WME-IMG were not involved in the decision making process. It was a conversation between White and Rousey to help her prepare for her comeback. Rousey felt disrespected and betrayed by many fans and media following her UFC 193 knockout loss to Holly Holm in November 2015.

White said that Rousey will have to do media once again after this fight if she wishes to continue competing in the sport.

White says WME had nothing to do with Rousey not talking. It was all him and her and he supports it. No conflict of interest.

White “assumes” Rousey will talk after fight. Says if she keeps fighting, she’ll have to do media in the future.

Rousey seeks to regain the UFC women’s bantamweight championship this Friday night in the main event at UFC 207.  She challenges current champion Amanda Nunes.  Nunes defeated former champion Miesha Tate for the title.

Tate took the belt from Holm who defeated Rousey last year in Rousey’s only professional loss.
