White won’t punish Rousey for “it” insults; Instead joins in on Cyborg bashing

Posted: April 25, 2014 in Commentary/Opinion

DanaVIGRonda Rousey made some disparaging statements toward Cris “Cyborg” Justino that ruffled some feathers. The UFC champ called Cyborg an “it” and ripped into her for steroid abuse. She claimed that Cyborg has been roiding up for so long; she’s not even a woman anymore.

We saw several outraged fans on our Facebook page predict that she would be (at minimum) reprimanded by the UFC, if not suspended for the comments. Well, sometimes the UFC isn’t all that easy to predict. Dana White has spoken on the topic and he was a long way off from scolding Rousey. In fact, he joined in on the ridiculing.

“Is it not true? Has (Cyborg) not taken (steroids)? She got busted for taking Winstrol, the same drug that Ben Johnson took and many other athletes took to do what? To cheat. Ronda called her a fucking cheater.”

“She’s a woman. What Ronda’s saying is, she’s taken so many drugs that she’s probably not a woman anymore. She’s not a transgender fighter. She didn’t have a surgery. Is she an it? Is she a transgender fighter? Did she have a surgery? She called her an it. Grow the fuck up, everybody.”

He then took it one step further—literally. He got up and imitated Cyborg walking, and claimed she looked like Wanderlei Silva in heels and a dress. So, although he didn’t come right and say it, I suppose the fact that White joined in on the joke; Ronda’s probably safe from being punished in any way. Some of the irate fans on Facebook won’t be happy with that.
