Dana White questions Nicco Montano’s UFC future: ‘This might not be the sport for her’
Nicco Montano has struggled making it into the UFC cage in recent years, which leaves boss Dana White unsure of her future.
The first female flyweight champion in ascension history, Montano (4-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) has only competed once since winning the title in December 2017, and it was a loss for Juliana Pena.
On Tuesday, White first spoke about Montano's latest weight loss last weekend at UFC on ESPN 28, questioning the future of the former mixed martial arts champion.
"I can't get it out of my head, but over three or four of their fights have been canceled," White said. “I think no matter what weight class you put her in, she seems to be having a hard time maintaining weight. Maybe that's not the sport for them. "

Eight of Montano's 10 planned matches with the promotion have been canceled or postponed. Six of those changes were due to a withdrawal on her side, with three being due to weight loss, including losing seven pounds last Friday for her bantamweight fight.
Montano, 32, has missed weight in both flyweight and bantamweight. She also tested positive for Ostarine and was suspended by the USADA for six months retrospectively as of October 2018. Her other UFC resignations were due to a positive COVID-19 test by one of her coaches and an injury she sustained during training camp for a fight against Macy Chiasson.
