The best thing that's happening to women's combat sports in general is that women's boxing is going to be in the next Olympics.
It's unfortunate that Cyborg tested positive for steroids.
It's unfortunate that Carano isn't fighting because she's got a movie career starting out.
But you can't make a sport on one person. One person can draw attention, but you need the next hundred people providing quality. Not just heart but a quality all around skillset. The problem with women's mma is that the #9 #10 fighters in any given weight class aren't that good.
I think that's changing.
