The fact of the matter is, the talent pool is just so small.

I'm a fan of Ronda, and I've enjoyed some awesome female MMA matches, but they really need to think about their audience here...

Who do they think they are doing this for? Do they think they will attract MORE female fans? Highly doubtful.

Most casual fans already don't care much about the lighter weight classes. I think the UFC needs to channel their efforts on keeping their existing fans happy before it's too late.

Because these women could kick my ass I don't like to watch them? i disagree

I don't watch women's basketball although I know fully well they would run circles around me on the court. I don't watch womens golf even though I knwo full well they would kick my ass on a golf course. I don't watch WMMA knowing full well many of those girls would sub me in an instant...

Explain why Invicta does so well then? Or all the attention Gina and now Rousey get in the media?

This is just balls out ******* stupid. To the point that you should feel ashamed you even typed out such shit. No logic or real thought put into this. Time to add you to the ignore list.

So because I or others don't care for WMMA it means we are on some alpha male bullshit? Ok...settle down you spaz.

You are such a fool...
I'm a fool because I don't care what gender the fighter is? Or that I think it's idiotic that people who can watch two men beat the shit out of each other balk because the fighters have tits without being Roy Nelson? No. You're the fool. Adding another name to the ignore list.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Deadman is so full of himself and thinks he knows it all he calls himself the "internet prophet".

This guy is such a joke it is hilarious and sad at the same time.

Huh... I see a post above me but can't read it. It's almost like I've put the poor fool on ignore to keep brain cells from dying every time he vomits his thoughts out onto a computer screen.

Do you get dumber by the post?

You are a FOOL, because you are calling others names, jumping to your own conclusions (alpha male bullshit), and having such a big probelm because other don't care for something.

Guess what you opinionated waste of time....people are different! Not everyone has to agree with you or what you care to watch.

That is why you are a FOOL.

Weird. It keeps showing that someone has posted but I just can't see the post.

*shrugs*

Oh well. It must not have been a good one anyway.

It was just a joke really, a tasteless one according to RearNaked (and I admit), anyway since it's too late to take it back, it's valid to point out that there was no Dana involved in any mentioned dream...yuck...

There's so much wrong with this mentality that I can't even get into it here as it will completely derail the thread.

But my counter-argument would include things like pre-civil rights movement society, pre-women's suffrage society, apartheid states, the holocaust, shark fin soup, anti-abortionists...

In short it would include a lot of examples of the people who were right triumphing over the social norms of an ignorant society.
