This. Everything about this is correct in my mind. Rousey/Carmouche should be leagues ahead of Silva/Bonnar in terms of entertainment value. I don't know about you guys, but I prefer good fights to absolute blowouts, nine times out of ten.

People have been wary of buying early since UFC 151 cancellation. I expect this to be the new norm.

Womens baseball started again in the 90's. Did you see it? Womens Soccer is only popular during the olympics and if the girls are winning. Womens football is only popular because they put the girls in lingerie. Womens basketball only make it because of the NBA, the highest paid womens basketball player only makes 100,000 a year. Its the latest fad and the people interested will be into it for a year maybe two and then it will go the way of every other womens sport. Unless its gymnastics. Even still every four years. Wait....how about womens tennis? Oh yeah only when hot girls are playing do people pay attention then when they lose people no one cares anymore. Tell me Im wrong. Im not interested in watching women beat each other up. Any women who posts about women being just as strong and fast as men obviously have never watched weightlifting or olympic track. Its the truth. Women can do anything and thats awesome but Im just not interested in watching them fight.

I'm taking UFC 157 off. The Card is just weak when you compare it to 155, 156 and 158.... Since I pay for the fights myself and I watch them in my home, i'm skipping 157. Hendo v Machida doesn't do it for me. And I have zero interest in the Rousey fight. I hardly doubt I'll even go to a bar or my buddies house for the fight either....I really don't like watching chicks fight... Maybe it's because of my job, I dunno...

Everlast,

There are a few more things that need clarifying after your last post. Could you explain to me please how the WNBA is surviving only because of the NBA? Also, could you tell me what the maximum salary of any player, regardless of their gender has to due with any level of success? I get that they are paid partly from the revenue and that would be an indicator, however, the fact that they play it and make any money means that they are passionate about the sport and there is enough of a fan base to keep them playing. As for the other sports you mentioned, most of those have huge loyal followings, making your statement inherently false. It is one thing to say that you are only a fan of these sports at certain times, but quite another to say that no one likes them. Women's MMA will be around for a year or two and then die off? It has been around for some time already and is showing no signs of slowing down. Please, keep your mouth as closed as you keep your mind.

It could be all economical, after the holiday season some people not be able to justify buying a PPV with fighters they're maybe not familiar with headlining the show. Maybe the UFC should have tagged the Rousey/Carmouche fight onto another PPV with another title fight, and made this the Co-Main Event.

It's untested waters, but that should not take away the fact that Carmouche will give Ronda, and the fans, a hell of a scrap.

Making enough niche fans to have a small loyal following and the female players being passionate is nice, but so the same can be said for professional scrabble or croquet players.

Yet you don't see mainstream sports with viewership of millions being dumb enough to try to HEADLINE their event with such niche endeavors.

You can open your mind all you want, but in the end you're not gonna force open people's wallets with what is basically a niche and inferior product.

If this fight was headlining an Invicta card, it would do immensely well for Invicta and could set up the company for big things, for the UFC I can see/understand it struggling to sell.

Not to say the UFC shouldn't have a womens division, but do they even have a division? Interesting to see where they go with dipping their toes into WMMA waters.
