Yeah, I have to agree that exposure is hard because only Bellator and Strikeforce. The rest have to work their way up with next to nothing being earned. I do agree the sponsorship idea is good.

What you know about Women's MMA?!

I had to bump this, man.. Seriously! November 2009! I'm not one to brag, but I muuuuuust say.. Not bad at all. Not only did I call the Women's TUF and the eventual Strikeforce folding, but the first ever both-sex-TUF-house.

One thing that has been a cause for concern is our beloved Women's MMA. With the return of Carano after her time off after losing to Cyborg, things are looking ever more interesting again. And sure, we can all remember big papa Dana saying the infamous line: "Business as Usual," but one has to wonder if that is really the case, and if so, how long will it last? WFA was purchased by Zuffa, and all we really remember from that was included in Undisputed. Pride's acquisition went well if we take into account the wealth of fighters added to the UFC roster, but for the brand, we can't really say the same. Lastly, WEC had a great run, and though my knowledge of it is limited (as I could never catch the damn cards in between school and work), it all ended up innevitably folding into the UFC.

Enter Strikeforce.

We need to remember that Scott Coker is a wizard of a businessman, and can definitely make "chicken salad out of chicken shit," borrowing a phrase from good ole Lesnar's vocab for all you TUF fans out there. He was able to turn a regional show like Strikeforce into an international one, with only a limited team, and limited resources. Now that he has all access to the long arm of Zuffa, who knows what could happen?

I digress, as usual -- back to Women's MMA!

But enough about all that, let's get back to the topic at hand, Women's MMA. It's great to see the women do their thing out there, and in all honesty, they do a tremendous job. I for one, will admit that any of those women could whoop the (choose your favourite expletive) out of me, and also look good doing it. These women have talent, and more people should know about it. We all know how big papa Dana feels about Women's MMA; the talent pool doesn't run very deep. But surely he's not opposed to the concept. If we're having a tough time finding talent out there, why not just do what we've been doing for the male counterparts and do a Women's TUF? Now maybe a show all about Women's TUF wouldn't be able to stand on its own, but how about we do a throwback TUF where there are two different contracts up for grabs and have one contract for the males, and one contract for the females like back in the day? It'd make a great twist for TUF, add more diversified interest in the sport, and not to mention a great introduction to how competitive Women's MMA really is, in my opinion.

If this is a repeat thread, I apologize guys, I did a search and couldn't find anything on it. Let's open up the forum a bit and get your opinions on this because I, for one, think that it'd be a great idea. MMA has changed my life in a positive way, and despite the fact that I am addicted to it more than a crackhead is to crack, it has made me a better person in all aspects of my life, and not to mention gotten me in better shape! Let's stop hogging the benefits of the sport for ourselves, and show women that this sport is a lot more than just "two sweaty guys rolling around on the ground and trying to knock each other out," and that it's more about honour, respect, valour, and the better competitor -- not the better man.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Definitely a prediction made correctly.
