UFC Plans Return To Orlando In Wake Of Strong Ticket Sales For Saturday Card

INDEPENDENT WOMAN: YAHOO SPORTS' Kevin Iole wrote under the header, "Ronda Rousey's Tiger Woods-Like Domination Not Good For UFC Women's Division." Rousey's ascent is "great in one sense, because fans gravitate toward winners." But it has "cast a pall over non-title women's matches." Miesha Tate will meet Liz Carmouche on Saturday "in a bout that, in other circumstances, might have stirred up a lot of passion and interest." But Rousey has "manhandled both, and that has taken a bit of the significance" out of the match. It "isn't getting the hype that it might have gotten otherwise because of the Rousey effect." But the good news is that Rousey's dominance "will force other female fighters to boost their games, much like Woods did on the PGA Tour" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 4/17).
