Women in UFC, Likely to Happen?
After Dana White declared that fans will never see a women inside the Octagon, fans just realized that the UFC President does not mean what the word "never" really implies.
After Dana White told a paparazzi from TMZ that fans will never see women inside the Octagon, MMA enthusiasts contemplate that it may be the other way around. In fact the UFC President even acknowledged that his lists of “never” often don’t last. Remember when he let James Toney step inside the Octagon? Dana White said that he’ll never put up a freak show, and you know what happened next.
Still not convinced? Okay, let Fighting Insider do the math here.
1. When Karo Parisyan pulled out of his UFC 106 match, White declared he would never fight in the UFC again.
2. When BJ Penn decided to fight in Japan in 2004, White told him that he would never fight in the UFC again.
3. When Chuck Liddell was knocked out by Shogun Rua, White said that Liddell will never fight in the UFC again.
But after that, Dana White gave them another shot. Simply put, there is a possibility that women in UFC will be added in Dana White’s list of “never” that were not really out of the question. As of the moment, there’s no female actively fighting that can make big enough difference to the UFC. However, a couple of years ago, UFC contacted Gina Carano for possibly entering the Octagon. But that didn’t work out, since there’s no draw comparable to Carano.
Eventually, Dana White will come to feel that women also deserves a shot in the UFC. But until that day comes, MMA fans can only hope that it will happen soon.View Article Source »
