Dana White Angry At Production Team For Putting Rousey On Spot

UFC President, Dana White spoke today about his angry reaction at Joe Rogan after he questioned Ronda Rousey was directed at the wrong person and that he was really upset at the broadcast team who chose to put the women’s bantamweight champion on the spot over her next fight inside the octagon.

Dana, speaking at the UFC 175 post-fight press conference said:

“I wasn’t upset with Joe Rogan; I was upset with the (broadcast) truck telling him to tell Ronda that she’s going to fight again. That wasn’t true; that was some s–t that somebody made up back there. It was the biggest idiotic move in the history of our production team. I told them right up there, that’s not true. I don’t know where that came from. Nobody told anybody to say that.”

Rousey revealed she needed arthroscopic surgery for her right knee and also revealed a longstanding injury to her right hand. Heres what she said:

“It turns out from the last two camps, for (UFC 168 and UFC 170), I kept ripping my knuckle open and covering it up and hitting on it. All I did was make sure it didn’t get infected. I ended up developing a cyst under my knuckle, and after the McMann fight, I should have taken it more seriously and gone to the doctor and got it taken out. I just kept dismissing it. Hopefully, the cyst is actually gone. But I have to go to the doctor and make sure. With the knee surgery, it’s just something more (like) maintenance that I have to do. I can walk out of there and literally be 100 percent after two weeks. But I’m left handed, so it’s all good.”
