UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey spoke just minutes after retaining her title against arch nemesis Miesha Tate at UFC 168. Rousey elaborated on her post-fight interview with Joe Rogan in which she spoke on why she respects Tate as a competitor, but also why she can’t shake her hand at this time. Also, she spoke on her thoughts of being boo’ed by the audience and why that doesn’t bother her as long as they are loud.
Dana White joined FOX Sports Live to talk about UFC 168. White talks about a focused Anderson Silva and a confident Chris Weidman. When asked if the first fight was a fluke, White says that Weidman has punching power. When he talks about the fight he talks about his excitement for the whole card he says the only thing that he thinks about is the middleweight title fight.
