Dana White 'sold' on women's version of The Ultimate Fighter   [View Full Version]
sparky » Posted 7/5/07 6:21:00PM

Less than an hour after Ronda Rousey was introduced as the inaugural UFC women's bantamweight champion, the discussion had already turned toward ways to bolster the new division.

Fielding question from a small collection of reporters on Thursday afternoon, UFC President Dana White was asked if he would be open to an all-female version of The Ultimate Fighter, with Rousey as one of the head coaches.

"Yeah, obviously," White replied. "Listen, she's a world champion. What do you see on TUF? You see world champions as head coaches. Listen, I'm in man. I'm sold.

"The reason we have women's MMA now is because of her."

I disagree, it has a solid chance. Ever noticed how many guys love watching the lingerie football league. It may be the change that TUF needs to boost ratings along with the change of schedule. They can also have it be vs Cyborg (if Rousey wins her match vs Liz, which she should). Then it could additionally be U.S. vs Brazil. I think it could be a nice boost, certainly an interesting change. Girls are also way more eager to be wrapped up in house drama....drunken girl fights will certainly bring ratings and if Dana is all about the almighty dollar (as you all say he is) then he will certainly make this happen.

This has already been done...Its the Bad Girls Club...

The drama could end up back-firing...Women could actually all end up as friends..

The best way for this idea to work is simply let the ladies go out to the clubs and thats how you create the drama...

I'd say just about everybody did. It's what happens with a new weight division, let alone a new gender, in the UFC.
