This should be the perfect first Rousey fight in the UFC. Chucking her in with a savage like Cyborg would have been incredibly risky, but this way, they get to build her up, increase her name value further, and more than likely add another impressive victory to the Rousey resume. Then, once Rousey's name is more established with the mainstream, and Cyborg is actually ready for 135, they can book the big fight we all want to see.

This is the worst business move the UFC has ever made (allowing women in), and this PPV is going to be one of the lowest selling ever. I never thought I'd say this, but Dana White is actually ruining the UFC and putting it on a serious path to decline.

Won't order. Love Rhonda but don't care. This is like asking me to order 147 all over again except this doesn't have injuries to blame.

The fight will probably be over before you are done.

How so?

I've still yet to hear one legit reason as to why people are so opposed to Women's MMA, I understand people don't like this match up and there's nothing wrong with that, I don't have a problem with people disliking certain match ups but I would love for someone whose against Women's MMA to enlighten me as to what the hell is so wrong with the entire thing.

Are people aware there's more to this than blood and finishes? I just don't get why people are against more MMA, they hate Women's MMA, they hate the Flyweights, why? I just don't get it.

Get over your "blood and finishes" obsession. Just because people don't care for WMMA or point fighting doesn't mean they know nothing of the sport and just like bloody HWs hitting eachother.

I don't watch WNBA. I love college mens basketball, I played basketball my whole life. I don't watch women's college ball. I like golf, I watch many PGA events a year, I don't watch much women's golf even though I know they would school me on the golf course.

No one is opposed to the idea of WMMA. We just aren't interested in it. I'm not interested in watching college wrestling...does that mean I am against something? Or does that just mean I'm not interested in it and it doesn't spark my interest?

Give it a rest. Not everyone has to be interested in things and give you reasons why.

And why are people not interested in it? That's what I can't figure out

You like fights don't you? Well, isn't Women's MMA fights? Everybody says they dislike it and they won't watch it, yet they never explain why. If you like MMA yet you won't watch Women's MMA, why it is that is stopping you from watching it?

Life Be Ez just said he likes Ronda yet for some reason he's compared a card with a title fight, Lyoto Machida vs. Dan Henderson, and Urijah Faber on it to a card that was basically a TUF Finale. I'm not taking a shot at him I'm just wondering why he feels this way and why people constantly put it down yet they never explain why.

I really can't figure out, if you like MMA you should be open to Women's MMA, it's not like the WNBA where the girls can't dunk or play like the Clippers.

1) It dilutes the cards when you add a bunch of little boys and women.

2) There aren't enough fighters to make a division that means anything.

3) Women suck at fighting. All of them.

4) They are taking up roster spots/payroll that could be used on others.

5) Many viewers don't want to watch two people fight that they feel they could beat themselves (delusional or not).

6) I don't care who the best fighter who weighs 125 pounds any more than I care about the best basketball player under 5'6" or the smartest retarded person is.

7) Obviously the crowds don't like the flyweights. They booed the title fight FFS.
