Clay Travis Shreds UFC Over Upcoming Ronda Rousey Fight
Fox Sports pundit and Outkick the Coverage founder Clay Travis ripped the UFC for the way its handled the upcoming Ronda Rousey fight.
“Ronda Rousey is fighting and I don’t think anybody even knows she’s fighting tomorrow. Now she’s not doing press. Sometimes that can be good because it’s like ‘oh the story line is she’s not doing any press.’ Ronda Rousey used to do every bit of press she could, which is smart, right, you try to draw as much attention as you possibly can. But right now she’s sitting it out and I feel like most people are not aware that fight is happening on Friday night. Now throw in the fact it’s right around New Year’s Eve, it’s in the holiday season and this seems like a really strange decision for the UFC,” the outspoken pundit said Thursday on his hit radio show “Outkick the Coverage.” (SLIDESHOW: THESE ARE THE SEXIEST PHOTOS OF RONDA ROUSEY ON THE INTERNET)
