Feck off the lot of you. I cant wait for Machida to pick Hendo apart well before a single round is up.
It's not sexist... the division has no depth and is a joke. Dana for ages said he's not going to have a Women's Division because the talent pool is too shallow... then suddenly he meets Ronda and changes his mind? And the Women's Division is suddenly "really legit" and is something to be taken seriously?

It has to be for the appearance of the card because it would look a bit weird to have a title fight be the co main for a non title fight. I wouldn't be against it other than the fact that as others have pointed out that it is a title for a division that is essentially non existent at this point while Machida/Hendo is a very big fight for the LHW division.

Every division has to start somewhere. Most women who belong in it are signed to Invicta which is owned by a former UFC employee. Don't you guys think they will fill the division up over time?

Of course it has no depth. That's why its a big deal. They have to start somewhere for fecks sake. These first steps are a big f*ucking deal to the ladies. It means the top of the food chain as far as WMMA is concerned is now the UFC. The big dog. If I need to explain to you what a big deal this is, then I'm guess there's no point trying. You calling it a joke shows you to be as sexist as they are.

And yes, Ronda has changed his mind. Maybe its because shes cute... and maybe it's because her grappling skills are some of the best in the UFC, men included.

At least some of us here can see some sense.

Not sure if the Women's Division will succeed in the long run, but in the short of it, Champions main event.

Women's MMA has grown quite a bit in the last few years and Ronda Rousey vs. Sara McMann is a fight I really wanna see.

In three years it went from Gina Carano to Ronda, Cyborg, Miesha, Liz, Sara, Kaufman, I think it'll continue to grow and it'll stay. I hope so anyway.

I'm not sexist... I'm being honest. Did the flyweight division in the UFC start with only 2 fighters??? No they let the talent establish itself in other organizations before they brought it to the Big Leagues... aka the UFC.

They should have let the talent pool get deeper before starting the division... and for sure before they have that division of only 2 people headlight a PPV event.

So Ronda beats this girl (I don't even know her name)... then what??? We wait two years for them to find someone else to fight her?

The women's division is one woman. Not even two. Anyone think it will stick around if cyborg crushes Rhonda?

And you know that how? The post above yours names 6 fighters. How do you figure it'll be 2 years before Ronda fights again. Pure exaggeration.

It's a great fight to headline with, Rousey is a star and Carmouche is a hard working and deserving contender. If UFC want to make a big deal, and show dedication to a Women's BW division then they need the Main Event slot to make it a big deal. If it was buried any further down the card then it would have been a travesty. The UFC need to make a big statement with this fight...Main Event status is how you achieve that.

Hendo needs to worry about Machida....not other peoples fights or where they are on the card.
