I'm not a fan of women's MMA.

I'm not anti-women MMA and if Dana wants to put a female division into the UFC then that's fine with me, but I certainly won't be buying (streaming) any events with them headlining it unless there's some other fights that are interesting on the card, as I'm not a fan of them. I only know 3 female fighters, the roid hound, the hot chick who did some movies, and the armbar woman. The only reason I know of them is because they are popular enough where you can't really avoid knowing about them around an MMA forum.

You know if it's against the rules to be racist here isn't it also against the rules to be sexist? If you're going to ban one 'ist it's not kosher to okay another.

When it comes to athleticism, it is Mother Nature that is sexist my friend.

Watching only top5 MW, LHW and HW, because the rest and lighter fighters wouldn't have a chance against those could be a bit boring I assume...

It isn't about whether or not the lighter fighters could be heavyweights.

It's about relative athleticism. All divisions have it.

Jose Aldo is fantastic, he does crazy, mindboggling things in the cage when he gets in there. Same with guys like Anthony Pettis.



You see a woman's MMA fight and it LOOKS like a joke.

I saw Marloes Conenen, supposed to be this top tier pioneer of women's MMA, get taken down and mounted repeatedly by Carmouche who wasn't even training a full year and looked every bit of. She had no idea how to punch, and spent entire rounds punching Coenen from mount like you punch when you are 4 years old and don't even turn your fist over.

It was absolutely disgraceful, and these were "top 10" fighters.



There's some sort of disillusion that I must hate women because I'm not PC and don't delude myself into thinking that I'm watching high level mixed martial arts when they step into the cage. It's like watching a drunken bar fight 80 percent of the time, the other 20 percent is watching Cyborg smash some poor girl's face open in 2 minutes or watching Ronda throw someone and armbar them.

You have no idea what the **** you are talking about. At all. Women are just as athletic as men. Not as strong maybe but just as athletic. And you obviously have only watched a handful of women's mma matches to think this kind of stupid misogynistic bullshit.

But we've had this conversation before haven't we, Roflcopter? How did it end last time? With your whole "science supports my sexism" stance completely debunked and you smacked down by mods for being a sexist asshole?

Show me a woman that can explode into a flying knee or even move their head when striking and I'll show you an honest politician.



Just as athletic as men.

What a riot.

the talent just isnt there yet it womens mma. the number of girls who grow up wrestling and practicing a MA is definitely lower, so there are less people out there with solid backgrounds. It is just like the Hw div...less athletes that are also that big = smaller talent pool.

Lots of stats that don't take the variables into account. Smarmy, self deluded condescension. An intensely radiating fear that someone with a ***** might be as good as a man.

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.
