men vs women

Alright i know this has been done before so bear with me. so i was watching fightgirls or something, which is the female version of ultimate fighter and i was thinking.
i know it will never happen but can some of these girls beat a couple of guys in the ufc. i could see someone like gina carano kickin the shit outa kalib starnes. she does train with xtreme couture and must have had many battles with forrest and randy during training..
on a side note, i would love to see her kickin the shit outa junie browning during training....

When the UFC has spent so long gaining acceptance from the athletic commissions of so many different provinces and states, this would be a great way to undo all of that. It just wouldn't be safe enough.

On another note, Kalib Starnes is actually a fairly talented fighter, he just doesn't have much heart. As much as I wish it wasn't true, I don't think she could beat him or Junie Browning (and I really wish she could beat Browning).

That would be different. For example you know when a chick gets mad at a guy and starts way layin on him and the respectable dude sits there and takes it. Not anymore once that crap happens 30 seconds in the octagon hun.

No.. just no. Kalib starnes may suck as a guy fighter but he'd beat the living shit out of Carano or any other female fighter. For one thing, he outweighs her by like 40 lbs, and even if he was the same weight as her, he'd still be a lot stronger. You need to step out of your deluded world and into reality. Not to mention every guy would just wanna take Carano down and lay in her guard for 15 mins .

No, just no. A woman fighting a man of anywhere near the same skill level in MMA would not be a pretty sight.

I don't think it is a good idea at all.

I think it should stick with men being in one category and women being in the other.

Kalib Starnes is a very good fighter, he just had that one performance against Nate Quarry. Like Ken Shamrock said, he has times where he can lack heart but he is a good fighter.

They would have to fight on a weight advantage most probably to compensate, and where are you going to find a 115 weight class for men?

It would be bad for the UFC.

But it would be hilarious to watch.

If I was fighting a chick, I'd pull guard every 3 seconds. I bet Cyborg can **** Manny Gamburyan up.
