There probably won't be as many MMA women as men in the near future, but nonetheless as the business grows also the talent pool will rise. And quality-wise women MMA is not really worse than HW men MMA where apart from some exeptions some blown up muscle guys just brawl without any technique worth mentioning until one of them gets a lucky punch or runs out of gas after 3 minutes.
