Dana White doubles down on Ronda Rousey calling 'Cyborg' Justino an 'it'

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Dana White reaffirms his thoughts that Cris Justino "looked like Wanderlei Silva in a dress" at the World MMA Awards, this days after Ronda Rousey called Justino an "it."

Ronda Rousey's recent statements about Cris "Cyborg" Justino drew a lot of attention, and not all of it was good. "This girl has been on steroids for so long and [has been] injecting herself for so long that she's not even a woman anymore." Rousey continued, "She's an 'it.'"

Some have claimed that this would seem to be in violation of the UFC's code of conduct, but the UFC has refused comment on the situation.

That is, until Dana White spoke at today's Media Day:

Obviously, trying to connect the "it" thing with "chicken" is nonsense.

But the bigger issue is Dana doubling down on the "it" comment from Rousey with his own shot at Justino's "lack of femininity."

The idea that the largest promoter in the game is espousing misogynistic ideas of how women should look is unprofessional and certainly not in keeping with the UFC's own stated expectations of conduct. But some things will never change.
