    He's right.

    If it was the flyweight title on the line at 160 instead of the heavyweight title, would people be freaking out that it's in front of JDS/Reem? No because it's two guys.

    People know the title fight is always at the top of the card and if the guys against this are likely sexist, hard to see it any other way.

      it doesn't have to be sexist in every case. I don't want to see them headline yet because I'd prefer to see the ufc build Rhonda/wmma up first. their are alot of believers in Rousey but let's build up thru the ufc. if people are sexist towards them why take a chance right off the back. Make them the co-main event just before another championship bout. Something that will lock viewers! the non-believers will tune in for example say Jose Aldo bout but wil forced and surprised by the Rousey. If she puts on the show we expect her to do you will all but lockin viewers for the next ppv with her as the headliner. Or even better showcase her for the belt on Fox. It's a win win

    Wow, just heard Chael say "Rhonda fights like a girl and he thinks he can beat her after his fight with Jones". "She doesn't have a triangle," said Sonnen, "I'll beat her for the belt and she can make me bacon and eggs in the morning"
