UFC President Dana White revealed he contacted Ronda Rousey shortly after Miesha Tate won the UFC Women’s bantamweight title.
Tate shocked former champion Holly Holm at UFC 196 on Saturday night and White was quick to get in touch with Rousey, who wasn’t even watching the fight…
“I texted Ronda, and Ronda wasn’t even watching the fight,” White told mmajunkie.com.
“I texted Ronda, and she said, ‘What happened?” I said, ‘Miesha just choked her unconscious.’ And she said, ‘Well, it looks like I got to get back to work.’ I don’t know what that means – if that means acting or fighting.
“She’s scheduled to not come back until October or November, but that doesn’t mean I can’t ask. I can ask. Ronda Rousey has worked very hard for three-and-a-half years in this company and believe me, she did anything that was asked of her and went above and beyond the call of duty.
“If she wants to stay out until October, she can do that.”
