Cyborg was probably all of things and turned out to be a straight fraud.
She got busted with an over the counter directic hardly making her a fraud, more so the issue of the lack of true weight classes.

The rest of the girls are part-time, novice strikers, novice wrestlers, novice BJJ players.
Yeah I love those novice Olympians (Miller, McMann, Rousey)

People spazing out make no sense.
I get the ignorance people have to womens MMA, I may have agreed with you this time last year. But Invicta, Miesha Tates last few fights have turned my opinion on women's MMA around. The fights are competitive, exciting, and brutal. These women can HATE each other for practically no reason. This sport has a huge future, I'm sure you'll come around

One doesnt have to be Nostradamus to assume that Dana said as much in his interview with ariel after the presser..Zuffa arent interested in WMMA they are only interested in making as much money off rousey while the iron is hot.A female kimbo slice situation if u will

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

Hating on smaller weight classes and WMMA is just ignorance.

2) This has nothing to do with their fighting skill.

3) No there isn't. Women don't watch sports nearly as much as men do, and most prefer to watch men. The only pro womens sports league that has had any sort of success is the WNBA, which only exists because the NBA props them up.

The women's division in the UFC won't last. If we wanted to watch some ugly chicks fight we'd just watch Jerry Springer or some shit.
1- The first American to take gold in Judo was a woman. Before her, our only medalist was Rhonda. Seems American girls do take that shit seriously. My point was, don't knock someone's skill when they've competed with the best in their division at a global level. But you just compared Olympic level Judo to yo-yo so you're just being disrespectful or ignorant to try proving your point...

2- Lyoto says drinking his first piss is an old method he uses when training. It does have some merit, but so does eating a multivitamin. Dan had to get permission to take testosterone shots so he can continue to compete at the level he does because he has old man balls. From their mouths not mine. I'd say that specifically has to do with their abilities as fighters since they said it does wouldn't you?

3- So you speak for women everywhere then? Obviously you know the female brain better than they do. Not to mention, you just compared female martial artists the world over to side show antics on a blatantly staged talk show. Again, disrespecting people to prove a point. Show up next time with valid arguments and I'll be happy to shoot those down as well.

1) What I'm trying to say is the world-wide participation in women's Judo is very low. Being the (third) best at a sport nobody cares about is about impressive as being good at yo-yoing. You're being ignorant towards the yo-yoers bro.

2) I don't care what they do outside the cage. Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida are vastly superior mixed martial artists in every respect.

3) The numbers don't lie bro. Nobody gives a f*** about womens pro sports. If people did then women's sports leagues would exist.


My guess is Dana is plowing Ronda and is going to see if people will like WMMA. They won't and in one year this will be about dead.

this, it's EXACTLY the same as when people say MMA is glorified cockfighting.

people who just aren't educated enough to truly appreciate the sport.

I like WMMA, I don't love it to the point when I'd look for every fight out there, but I've enjoyed those I've watched, especially in the japanese circuit.

Well, as a fan of all martial arts, I'll be cheering them on. That makes at least one person that cares. I highly doubt Dana is thinking with his junk here considering how savvy a business man he has proven to be in resurrecting the UFC when other sports organizations were decrying it and anticipating it's demise. I guess we'll see in due time if more fans see it my way or yours. I'll be buying Ronda's card to show my support. I can't wait to see her defend the belt or lose it so we can have an undisputed female champion!

Female athletics is and will always be incredibly niche. And any real athlete will go into a sport like volleyball or tennis instead of prizefighting where disinterested men watch you roll around and fail to use proper technique for 8/8.

Women's mma may end up being a flop, but if it does flop it will have more to do with the unwarranted hate from sexist bigots just like some of the commenters in this thread. If people give it a damn chance they'll enjoy it.
