Did we really just go there? I can see it being labelled a niche product, if you have your eyes closed to the millions of fans of the product. What I don't understand is how anyone can call it inferior. Just like I said in my last post, saying you don't like something is one thing, but saying no one does is quite another. To call women's MMA inferior is just plain insulting and ignorant.

A 3 person division with a champ that only knows one thing, and slow sluggish competition with weak sloppy looking technique at physical levels far lower than men... political correctness be damned, I gave watching it a shot and it's just plain boring.

I can appreciate certain women's sports that involve grace and flow, but their bodies are just not cut out for fighting any more than men's bodies are for birthing another human being.

Did you really just claim "millions of fans" for WMMA? Any sort of evidence for that or did you just pull that out of the air? Because I don't know a single one in all the thousands of people I know, and I know dozens if not hundreds of regular men's MMA fans, so going by sampling I find your figures hard to believe. Do you have viewership figures for an ALL women's card in the millions? Because I can show you 5 times that for many all men's cards obviously like the ones on free to air TV.

But back on topic, the UFC still has time to push the promoting of the event, PPV buys and ticket sales could still increase in the week leading up to it so lets just see how the final figures pan out.

Still a lot of time left to get numbers up on the rise.

liddell is right, also in case you haven't noticed the flyweight division with former bantamweight tile contenders and whatnot with more depth and well known fighters is getting lambasted by most of the fans so now we're adding the element of different gender fighters in a shallow division without even the invicta fighters to be accepted when flyweight can't. Dodson/johnson will probably get a barely better reception than rousey/carmouche, also the fight will be over in 1 minute by armbar

On wikipedia up until a few days ago they only had like 3 fights up, and I don't know if anything has changed since. Is the card even full yet?

Now that you mention it I did see this on another site yesterday. But even up until like 3 days ago the full card wasn't really anywhere, and it didn't have a wiki page of it's own which is very rarley seen with UFC events.

I think people are just being stupid enough to not get it because of the female main event. Hendo/Machida are still fighting so I don't see the issue. I'm interested in the recent TUF guys' fights (Magny/Manley, Bermudez, Chiesa), Rousey, Machida/Hendo and Kos/Lawler, so theres a few fights worth getting a ticket for here.



Thanks to Ape for the sig.

I'd almost buy a ticket just to watch Schaub get KOed.

I wish Schaub's chin was better to make Nog seem better

Looks like a great card! So what if Rousey is headlining, come live in the UK, then you can complain about a poor main event/card.
