"He wants to question the depth of the female division, but every female fight that ProElite has put on has been a showcase of women's talent and has been 'fight of the night' type material," Baszler says. "If he wants to question that, then I'd question the talent of his heavyweight division," which recently was challenged by Affliction's heavyweight-loaded card.

Cyborg is more direct.

"I'd love to fight Dana White to show him how tough women are," she says through an interpreter.

Dana never said women aren't tough or can't be fighters, he just doesn't enjoy watching women beat the crap out of eachother. It's personal opinion and he's not ignorant for saying it.

Dana White has said in interviews that there aren't enough talented women for the UFC to have a womens division. That is probably what Baszler is commenting on in that quote.

...and he's right.

He's not saying they AREN'T talented. He's saying there just aren't enough of them right now.

I think that quote might be a little ignorant.
Dana isn't just a fat slob they pulled off the street and put a sport coat on.

Cyborg wanting to fight Dana......ha ha ha!!! Not sure this would be a fair fight. Dana has been a boxer before and he isn't just some slouch off the street.

These ladies were missinformed about what Dana said.
