Yep, just as good.

A gorilla could kill the best fighter on the planet. Does it make men's MMA not worth watching??

Where's your flexibility statistics? Agility statistics? Pain endurance statistics?

No one is saying women could beat men in fights, but that doesn't mean female fighting isn't interesting.

You totally ignored the argument that women's MMA is in its infancy. Put Megumi Fuji against a lot of the guys in UFC 1 you'd see some men tapping.

José Aldo has the physical abilities of a child compared to those of Jon Jones.

You know your day got ruined when you start throwing around vague, unsupported theses like "BUT DA VARIABLES AREN'T CONSIDERED".



Women aren't more agile than men, on HS agility tests the national standard is 2 seconds lower for men then women.

Flexibility deteriorated rapidly with age in both genders, and such a thing isn't measured statistically.


It flexibility is the best you got in terms of athletic achievement then

Children typically aren't faster(straight line speed), quicker, nor jump higher than grown men.


Jose Aldo would probably destroy Jones in any sport not named wrestling, football or MMA purely on size disparity.

It speaks to how poor of an explosive athlete Jones is that he is 6'4 with a freakish wingspan and according to him he was awful at basketball and could barely dunk.

Flexibility, leverage and balance work in his favor as well as supreme side and length advantage, but the dude is easily one of the most overrated athletes in the sport in terms of the misconception that people actually believe he could've went pro in "any other sport".

Also Megumi Fuji would've gotten destroyed. Just because Royce won it doesn't mean there wasn't capable fighters in those first few tournaments.

Kimo, Shamrock, Goodridge, all would've destroyed Fuji.

The lighter weight classes would get destroyed by the Heavyweights.

Yep it's a Roflcopter post alright.

All you have proven is that my continued belief that sexists are just as ignorant as any racist. And like racists their beliefs say a lot more about them than it does the world.

I'm done in this thread. You have fun making yourself look even more like a complete raving ****tard.
Roflcopter is right, I can't believe anybody is actually arguing that women are as athletic as men. That's like saying 2+2=5, it's just an obvious well-established scientific fact. If you think the only difference between a man and a woman is a penis then you don't know anything, there are tons of hormones and millions of years of evolution that have shaped women and men differently. I know you want to be PC and pretend you live in a fantasy world where women and men are the same thing (why do we even bother with 2 different words?), but you are ignoring reality.

Why dont we have a 105 lbs weight class? Why not watch children's MMA? You have to draw the line somewhere, don't be ridiculous.

Roflcopter is a bit of a nob, but he is right about women not being any where near as athletic as men. There isn't any thing sexist about that, it's a scientific fact.

But then again, still, Rolfcopter is a bit of a nob head so...
