Dana White Not Taking Issue with Ronda Rousey Calling Cyborg It
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 04.24.2014

UFC President Dana White spoke with reporters in a media scrum before UFC 172 at the pre-fight press conference and talked about the controversy of UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey referring to Cris "Cyborg" Justino as an "it." Rousey is not being reprimanded under UFC's code of conduct policy because Justino is not a transgender person or a lesbian, which is probably why GLAAD was nowhere to be found when the media blew up over this issue. While Cyborg's camp has defended her against these comments, pointing out how she's passed her drug tests as of late, Cyborg's jacked-up physique has looked extremely suspicious in the past. She failed a drug test for steroids in 2011. And one of the side-effects for women using steroids is making them appear more masculine.

Below are some highlights of White discussing the issue with reporters:

White on Rousey's comments: "I think that this is the fight business, and people say mean things about each other. Is it not true? Has [Justino] not taken (steroids)? She got busted for taking Winstrol, the same drug that Ben Johnson took and many other athletes took to do what? To cheat. Ronda called her a fing cheater."

White on the position of those speaking against Rousey's comments being weak: "She's [Cyborg] not a transgender fighter. She's a woman. What Ronda's saying is, she's taken so many drugs that she's probably not a woman anymore. She's not a transgender fighter. She didn't have a surgery. Is she an it? Is she a transgender fighter? Did she have a surgery? She called her an it. Grow the fk up, everybody."

White on Cyborg being difficult to make a deal with: "She's a nightmare in every way, shape and form. At the end of the day, it's not worth it for me in the big picture."
