Ronda Rousey gives non-committal response to question of headling UFC 176, Dana White unhappy with question

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Dana White appeared livid that Ronda Rousey was asked if she would fight at UFC 176 directly following her destructive win over Alexis Davis at UFC 175.

Following her amazing sixteen second demolition of Alexis Davis at UFC 175, Joe Rogan said that the production truck told him to ask her if she would headline UFC 176. 176 lost its main event when Jose Aldo suffered an injury and the UFC has not promoted the event at all this weekend, seemingly suggesting that the event may be scrapped altogether.

Rousey gave a non-committal response, saying she is scheduled for knee surgery but would talk to her team and make a decision.

Rousey had been asked the same question at media day when she said, "If they needed me to step up, I would do it...I would appreciate the rest, but if they really needed me to do it, they know I would do it."

Following the question, Dana White could be seen in the cage seemingly apologizing to Rousey for having been put on the spot and then yelling at Rogan over the line of questioning.

It seems to have been entirely the work of someone in the production truck and not a part of the UFC's plans if White's reaction is any indication.
