Ronda Rousey's headline match at UFC 190 ended in 34 seconds as the reigning Women's Champion knocked out opponent Bethe Correia. 

This caused fans to head to Twitter to ask UFC President Dana White why the UFC subscription is $19.99 when the WWE Network is just £9.99.

White replied: "I hear u bro but fake s*** should be 9.99."

@RKORollins then replied "Bro. Try it out some time. Walk out of that ring and tell me it's fake."

But the President of UFC responded "trust me my friend..... IT's FAKE." and "not disrespecting what they do. All the WWE guys I have met are awesome people but yes it's fake."


Twitter then erupted in anger, as many WWE fans know, WWE is fake yes, but it's an unwritten rule that no one ever talks about it. The words "scripted" and "predetermined" are used instead. 

Even WWE Superstars have responded angrily, this included WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins who tweeted:

"Guys, cut @danawhite some slack. I mean he's had a million matches, so his opinion is super valid and should be taken as gospel."

This was then followed by Mick Foley who wrote:

"Fake" was a poor word choice by @danawhite. @RondaRousey's tribute to Roddy is a heartfelt move from the most popular fighter in the world."

Current Mr Money in the Bank Sheamus:

"Some call @UFC fake... IT IS... Fearless Artistry Kombat Evolved. 100%. @danawhite."

Even former WWE Superstar Bully Ray showed that he still holds out a hope of being rehired by WWE after he responded to the tweet with:

"Good thing you had "FAKE" @BrockLesnar in @ufc to be your biggest PPV draw of all time."

Brock Lesnar still is one of the biggest pulls ever for UFC and former WWE Superstar CM Punk is set to be a big pull when he finally makes his debut in several months time, but it seems Dana White isn't going to thank WWE for their services enroute to this. 

Rousey working with WWE?

Despite this current bad press, it seems WWE and UFC are still on good terms and the plans for Ronda Rousey to play a part in WrestleMania 32 still look to be going ahead. 

Ahead of her Bantamweight title defence last night, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon tweeted a picture of themselves in Rousey shirts to show that they supported her.

Lately, Stephanie McMahon especially, has been tagging the UFC fighter in tweets to build up what could be a potential match between herself and Rousey next April.
