Dana White Reveals Why She Chose Holly Holm Over Miesha Tate to Compete Against Ronda Rousey

September 14, 2015 2 min read

There's been a lot of talk about last month's announcement regarding the January 2015 fight between Ronda Rousey and UFC newcomer Holly Holm, including why Miesha Tate wasn't chosen. Dana White originally confirmed that Tate was the number one contender against Rousey, but once the announcement came out last month, Tate was full on "shocked" that she wasn't even given a phone call to break the news. So why didn't White choose to match up the two once again? White finally sat down this week to put people's minds to rest regarding the issue. "She's lost to Ronda twice," White explained Wednesday on "UFC Tonight." And why did she replace Tate with newcomer Holm? "Holly Holm —€” WBC, WBA, WBF, IBA, you name it, she's won the belt in boxing, she's 9-0 in mixed martial arts. If you look at the range and the distance, the head kicks, all the attributes ... We originally brought Holly Holm into the UFC to fight Ronda Rousey. That fight makes sense." FEATURED-2 White also addressed the fact that having Rousey beat Tate again so soon would be a big problem for Tate's career. "Miesha, at this point in her career, if she loses to Ronda Rousey a third time, it's a career killer." And while Tate fans, and Tate herself are feeling a little rejected, White assures everyone that this is simply not the case. "I know it seems like Miesha Tate got a bad break in this thing, but realistically when you look at it, Miesha has lost to her twice," White said. "Miesha's gonna have to knock a couple more people off to get to Ronda." What do you think of White's decision to put Holm up against Rousey instead of Tate?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
