Being a female fighter must suck. You love the sport of mma, want to make a living out of it but can't because there aren't any possibilities. I'm sure Dana would create a women's division for the UFC if there was enough talent.

The problem is that there is a lot of talent in womens MMA, its just in the wrong places. 125 and 35 are far more stackede divisions than 145, but Carano and Cyborg, the two biggest female buys are at 145. Those two women are pretty much the whole reason that division still exists.

Yeah, and unfortunately there isn't a 125 pound division in any major promotion. Strikeforce has 135 and 145 and Bellator has 115 pounds. Neither of them has an inbetween weightclass.

Grabbing the fence or ring rope isn't the same as TDD.

The Matt Lindland match was a one time deal. Normally Fedor gets takendown and goes right for a submission. Either that or he beats the guy down.
