Meisha Tate says she is also with the UFC. I'm glad Zuffa is finally killing SF after sucking the life out of since it's purchase. It's a damn shame what they turned SF into.

SF should have been closed a long time ago, but better late than never. Adding women to the UFC is a horrible business move, and it's going to hurt them. As much I wish I could say it isn't so, I really see Dana White leading the UFC to a decline at this point...

Why is that? I'm a big fan of women's MMA. Plenty of organizations feature both male and female fighters.

Yeah I don't get that either, women's MMA is pretty fantastic lots of back and forth grudge matches. Lord knows the UFC needs more depth seeing as how 125, 135, and 145 aren't drawing.

I personally think that there should be at least 3 weight classes add some diversity. Some of the female fights I have watched are much more entertaining than the lot of the lay and pray fights that are prevalent now.

Everyone says this, yet they never explain why Women's MMA is bad for the UFC.

Women's MMA is only a positive for the UFC, I think it's crucial to make Women's Cruiserweight at 140 lbs, to lure Cyborg into fighting Ronda and maybe even get Gina back, even though thick Gina looks pretty damn good.

You don't stop to watch girls play basketball, you do stop to watch them fight, at least when I was in high school that's how it went, you need to understand the market MMA caters to and to see Ronda Rousey snapping arms and to see girls rolling around on the ground with each other the UFC can only keep a tight grip on that very market.

Not to mention, Kedzie/Tate was a top five fight this year. Ya'll need to watch that shit.

I agree. The women can really put on a show. A sweet KO is a sweet KO. Doesn't matter if it's male or female.

Kind of a shame as Larkin really shouldn't get the last shot Jacare should, that would be a fitting final event.
Agreed.

To me, its just a publicity stunt by UFC to gloats Rousey as the female of UFC. Honestly, I don't know if I agreed with it because you have few women in few different classes.

Not only that, you have one fight that some people wanna see but isn't gonna happen because of weight classes and Rousey calling out the other ex-champion who was tested for steroid or something.

It is a move by Dana White to please Rousey by forcing Cyborg to fight in her class? I am just questioning the motive behind this.

If anything has changed since that time, I am out of the hoop because I haven't had the time to follows up in the last 4 months on that story due to work and busy life style.

Man I'm so pumped to hear this. I don't see what folks saying this is bad business even mean. I'll without a doubt buy the first ppv with Rousey and will continue to support the women's division by shelling out the greenbacks to watch them fight. Now my girlfriend can root for another fighter other than GSP.

I'd love to see Kayla Harrison potentially come in as well. I'm not sure she's even expressed an interest in mma but that Gold medal around her neck leads me to believe she could do pretty well for herself. She'd also be a weight class or two up from Ronda so if Cyroid is afraid of our silver medalist in Judo she can face our golden girl! War women's MMA!
