Shayna Baszler and Cris Cyborg Hammer Dana White on Women's MMA

A little funny:

"He wants to question the depth of the female division, but every female fight that ProElite has put on has been a showcase of women's talent and has been 'fight of the night' type material," Baszler says. "If he wants to question that, then I'd question the talent of his heavyweight division," which recently was challenged by Affliction's heavyweight-loaded card.

Cyborg is more direct.

"I'd love to fight Dana White to show him how tough women are," she says through an interpreter.

Alas, I don't think Dana White's ever been anti-women's MMA. I think he's a little gunshy about bringing them on because of protracted legalization battles and as far as adding women to the UFC roster, there isn't much in the way of value added for them. They probably have too many men under contract as it is; bringing aboard women could be interesting, but in White's mind isn't worth any potential risks.

I'm still a fan, though.
