Dana White: Conor McGregor reminds me of Ronda Rousey


Ronda Rousey is the new Chuck Liddell and, according to UFC president Dana White, Conor McGregor might be the new Ronda Rousey. Before his successful return to the Octagon this past Saturday at UFC Fight Night 46, the brash Irish sensation McGregor said that he has visions of what he will accomplish in the future.

McGregor has absolute faith that his visions of grandeur will come true. In that way, White told assembled media in Dublin after Saturday's event that McGregor is a lot like Rousey. "Ronda Rousey has a million visions too," he said.

"She had a vision of her and I meeting and bringing women into the UFC. It is crazy when she talks about things she had visions of and then I listen to him talk now and it is hilarious."

Given the tickets they both sell and the buzz they create, it is no wonder why White is high on both Rousey and McGregor. The Dubliner may need to calm down a bit, according to Uncle Dana, but he's got the right idea.

"I like that he's ambitious. He just needs to relax a little bit. I love the things he says," White said of McGregor.

I'm telling you, he reminds me of Ronda Rousey Him and his visions remind me of Ronda Rousey."
