Dana OWNED Ronda worse than Nunes did...and he deserves props for doing so.

    He KNEW how utterly shattered Ronda was mentally...(after the Holly fight) otherwise he wouldn't allow a "media blackout" leading up to such a big event. (just look how he dealt with Conor in comparison)

    He KNEW to handle her with baby gloves because he wanted to squeeze every last dime out of her...

    ...and he won.

    Had he required her to talk to the media, she probably would have just retired...and it's obvious that she SHOULD have retired after the Holly fight; he knows this.

    In summation, he pulled the strings (in terms of Ronda) at every turn...

    It was quite diabolical, but kudos to him for enacting such a scheme.

    It makes you wonder if he is going to do it again... (i.e. pulls the right strings to compel her to fight)

    He could have had her do a tune up fight, or even 2 tune up fights and give her more time to get rid of Edmond.

    Or he could blow his load on this one fight like an idiot.

    Dana is worth half a billion dollars, you really think he went through all that trouble to get a chick beat up so he could make a little more?

    No.

    She is with Edmond because she is truly narcissistic.

    Dana cannot just tell her to dump him.

    Yes. He's a businessman. If anything, though, an incredibly short-sighted one.

    I think your giving Dana too much credit. Rousey was done but UFC wanted one last circus. She was already out the door but now she took $3M with her.

    Do you know why rich people are rich...

    ...making "a little more" is precisely the mentality needed to make.............A LOT.

    I don't think Dana would throw Ronda in there if he thought she was done or mentally broken.

    Of course Dana wants to make as much money as possible, but it's not like he forced her to fight. He's catered to her at every turn and in truth she deserves that for basically bringing an entire gender to the UFC.

    Ronda is BAD for the UFC.

    She is toxic and...toxic.

    Why you think that I'm a fan is beyond me.

    Yes, he would, and did. He could give a two fucks about Ronda's mental state. The only loyalty he has is to the green god.

    Reading way too much into it Dana was doing everything he could to assist her in an easier comeback without the media hoping she'd win there's he'll of alot more money behind rousey defending the belt than amanda plus they could have set up Ronda to go to 145 to fight the winner there and attempt to make her a 2 divison champ and bigger star this was the worst case scenario for Dana

    The mental aspect of fighting can sometimes be THE MOST IMPORTANT THING.

    ...and mentally, well...she can't even deal with the media, so......................................
