Everyone keeps talking to Dana about women’s MMA in the UFC and he keeps giving the same answer: No. But in the vein of “Can we have a pool, dad?”, if you ask someone the same question enough they might finally give you the answer you want to hear. In regards to a question about booking Gina Carano vs Cris Cyborg, here’s what the baldfather said:
“I wouldn’t be opposed to it. And if I did do it, I’d probably do it in the WEC.”
Other notes from MMA Live: they confirmed that Fabricio Werdum has been let go, and Dana hints that there’s a “Very good reason” that Junie was kept on the show and that it had nothing to do with ratings. But who gives a shit about that! For Dana to mention women in the WEC on ESPN … that’s fucking huge. I have very little doubt in my mind now that women will end up in the WEC sometime in 2009. Probably sooner rather than later. Fuck yeah!
