Oh good, now we get to see Rousey armbar people in 3 minutes preceded by a bunch of unskilled slopfests.

It's a good thing. With being part of the UFC, the most succesful MMA organisation, WMMA will get much more recognition which will make more women start in MMA which consequently will grow the talent pool and the depth in the devision. WMMA is now were MMA was in the 90s, but with the advantage that MMA and the UFC have pioneered already.

I was hoping they'd all go to Invicta so I didn't have to be bothered with them.


At least when women's boxing(lol) was a niche because of Ali and Frazier's daughters, we weren't forced to watch every other washwoman fight.

Take an intermission when the women step in the cage. But you are missing some entertaining fights. I'm down to watch women like Felice Herrig fight all day.

You don't like quick submissions? The UFC was built on them guy. While I agree the talent will be thin in the beginning, it has to start somewhere. Tell ya what, if you're ever down here watching one with me, you can go get me another beer out the kitchen and maybe put a pizza in the oven while the ladies fight. Win win my friend.

And there is absolutely nothing remarkable about her other than the fact that she has a vagina.

Great post. I tried to + you again but it won't allow me to right now. I'm a mma junkie, hell I keep watching a bunch of Indian fighters making their pro debuts on Youtube. But a sweet KO or sub is a sweet KO or sub.
