If you had hopes to see UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey clash with Cris ‘Cyborg’, maybe it is time to move on.

Dana White is glad Wanderlei and Chael didn’t come to blows in Vegas

On one hand, I’m glad Chael and Wanderlei were professional enough to not start swinging at Mr. Olympia in Las Vegas.
