She's on the list...
Dana White spoke last night following UFC 177 about Bethe Correia's chances at a title fight with Ronda Rousey and more. Check out the highlights:
On Correia's chances: "There's a long list for Rousey waiting right now, so we'll see what happens. She's on the list. It's a short list."
On Rousey wanting the fight: "As soon as (Bethe) started talking, she texted me and said, ‘I want that fight; I want it now. I want it before someone else beats her,' and I said, ‘Calm down, lady. You've got other people to fight. We'll figure it out.' So Ronda wants that fight, too. We'll see how this thing plays out."
On if the rivalry plays in: "I don't think Bethe moves up because of the rivalry; I think Bethe moves up because of what she did tonight. That was crazy. The punches she hit (Baszler) with, I haven't seen anything like that since (Phil) Baroni (versus) (Dave) Menne. She looked good tonight. That's what's going to get her a fight with Rousey."
