According to an Aug. 16 post from MMA Junkie, UFC boss Dana White isn't thrilled with Ronda Rousey's recent Twitter outburst, a day-long rant where she fired back at the critics who bashed her for "going Hollywood."
"Here's the thing: If you want to be on Twitter, get ready," White said in reference to Rousey's Twitter rant. "Put your big girl boots on, because s--t's coming at you. Any time you're in the public, whether it's social media or the Internet or anywhere else, people are going to say stupid s--t to you. No matter what, it's going to happen. And you can't snap and flip out on everybody every time they do. She's she'll learn that. She's still young."
The learning that the star judoka needs to do, according to the UFC boss, is to know when to use social media and when to lay low for a couple days.
"What Rousey has accomplished with the Olympics and mixed martial arts, I'm telling you, she's a workhorse," White said. "Just the load that we put on her, she kicks ass. She handles a lot of stuff. Everybody is going to have their moments where they snap and just say, 'Hey, f--k you world. Leave me alone today.'
"But those are the days that you don't pick up Twitter and push the button and you don't get on the Internet. The only time you get smashed with that much negativity is when you go there. So just don't go there."
White and the UFC have no plans to fine Rousey for the comments she made via Twitter.
"F--- all you hating twitter b*tches, have a great time spending the rest of your day seething over my options and choices," Rousey tweeted in an epic post that piqued the interest of media outlets across the nation.
White offered his take on the matter during a media scrum in support of Boston's UFC Fight Night 26.
