As well as the rest of UFC 157...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Dana White revealed that not only is he excited for Ronda Rousey vs Liz Carmouche at UFC 157, but the rest of the card as well. Here are highlights:
On why Rousey is a big deal: "The media is following her because she's legit – she's the real deal. She's a world-class athlete who won an Olympic medal. How do you not respect that? How do you not respect someone who's been training since they were 6 years old and medaled in the Olympics, and has worked as hard as she has to round out her game as a martial artist, too?"
On Rousey's striking game: "Everybody was talking about her hands two years ago. Look at her f---ing hands now. I know things you guys don't know about her and what she's doing as far as her hands go. I'd love to see guys go spar with her. She'd knock someone's f---ing head right off, and would love doing it. She is tough, she is mean, and she is f---ing nasty. She's f---iing mean, man. She's a tough chick."
On what he's excited for about the card: "I'm obviously excited for that (Rousey-Carmouche) fight, but I'm excited for the whole card. The whole card is a great card."
