Ever since talks of a Santos-Rousey women's superfight have surfaced, Santos has been adamant in her desire to fight at a weight higher than 135. In recent weeks, her manager, Tito Ortiz, has said her fighter will try to make it down to 135, but won't go through with it if it isn't safe.
In response, White said on Tuesday's edition of UFC Tonight that it's basically 135 pounds or nothing for Santos.
"[Bantamweight] is the only division we have," White said. "It's been real interesting. You know, I've been in the fight game since I was 19 years old and I've been doing this for 15 years and what I get out of this deal with Cyborg is that she wants nothing to do with Ronda Rousey. She does not want to fight Ronda Rousey.
White said he's ultimately not sure how this will end up.
"We don't have a 145-pound women's division, so I don't know how this is going to end up. It's been weird."
