Dana White Angry at Joe Rogan’s Question to Ronda Rousey Regarding UFC 176 (+Video)

Dana White was upset with the question asked of Ronda Rousey after she destroyed Alexis Davis at UFC 175 on Saturday night.

White, the president of UFC, stepped in after Joe Rogan asked if Rousey would step in at the upcoming UFC 176 because Jose Aldo can no longer fight.

“The [production] truck just asked me to ask you if you would fight on Aug. 2,” Rogan told Rousey.

The audience was happy with the question, cheering.

Rousey smiled, saying: “(I’m) scheduled for knee surgery already,” she said. “I’m going to talk to my coaches, and if they say it’s cool with them, it’s cool with me. I’ll do it.”

But White stepped in seeming to explain to Rousey that she shouldn’t have been asked the question. Rogan puts a hand on White’s shoulder but White turns to him and says something that appears to be unpleasant. 

“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,” White said at a press conference after the event..

“That wasn’t true; that was some [expletive] that somebody made up back there. It was the biggest idiotic move in the history of our production team.”

UFC 176 is scheduled for August 2.

Rousey beat Davis in just 16 seconds in UFC 175, marking the second-fastest knockout in UFC title history.
