Many here seem confused themselves as to which head they would think with if they were in charge. Nice to see that sexual harassment is alive and well... Amazing really from the generation who is banning bullying. This thread started on a bad note and no matter what redirection some have tried rerouting it keeps going to shit. This board is not mature enough it seems...

When it comes to WMMA a lot of posters really show their bad sides.

Unsubscribing from this thread now because I will be banned if I retaliate to some of the sexist shit I've been reading on here. The whole "women will always be inferior athletes to men", the "WMMA is a joke" bullshit is really starting to wear thin on me.

Liza I agree a lot of people are showing some rudimentary point of views, but it is fact that "women will always be inferior athletes to men". I don't mean that to be a knock on anyone as women are definitely not inferior as human beings, anyway here is a good breakdown on the athletic differences between men and women:

Quote:
The athletic differences between men and women are large because the physiological differences between the two sexes are large, according to the textbook "An Invitation to Health." The average man is stronger than the average woman even when they weigh the same because of their body composition. Men also have a physiological advantage over women because their hearts, lungs and legs tend to be larger. However, women's bodies give them an edge in ultraendurance events and sports that emphasize flexibility.

Strength
The average U.S. man is slightly taller than 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 190 lb., while the average U.S. woman is slightly under 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 163 lb., according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report. This size difference gives men an advantage in many team and individual sports, but men also have a strength advantage in sports such as boxing and wrestling where the two competitors are about the same size. A typical man has about twice as much muscle and half as much fat as a similarly sized woman. According to "An Invitation to Health," 27 percent of an average woman's weight and 15 percent of an average man's weight is fat. "Men are about 30 percent stronger," concluded author Dianne Hales.

Speed
Men typically run faster than women because of several athletic differences, wrote Hales. Their larger hearts pump about 16 percent more liters of blood per heartbeat. Their larger lungs mean that the average man's maximum oxygen consumption is 25 percent to 30 percent higher than a woman's, while an elite male athlete's maximum oxygen consumption is about 10 percent higher than an elite female athlete's. In addition, men's longer legs give them an advantage with each stride.


These factors mean that "If a man jogs along at 50 percent of his capacity, a woman has to push to 73 percent of hers to keep up," wrote Hales. Performances reflect these differences. "Olympian Political Correctness," a National Review article, reported that women's world records in the 100-, 200-, 400-, 800-, 1,500- and 3,000 m runs are slower than the best times by 15-year-old U.S. boys.

Endurance
Men's higher oxygen consumption and average 12 breaths per minute compared to women's nine breaths per minute gives them an advantage in most endurance events. Men are also more efficient in running because the angle of their femur to the pelvis is more pronounced than women's, according to "An Invitation to Health." However, women burn more fat and fewer carbohydrates, which are important for energy, than men in endurance events, according to "Gender and Endurance Performance," an article in Northwest Runner magazine. This helps woman beat men in ultraendurance events that last more than a few hours and could explain why such a higher percentage of people who swim across The English Channel are women.


Other Differences
Men have an advantage over women in sports because they're more aggressive and have higher self-esteem, according to Understanding Psychology. The textbook reports that males are more aggressive than females from age 2 through the end of life. On the other hand, women's muscles are more flexible than men's "because of hormonal and anatomical differences," reports "An Invitation to Health." Better flexibility helps female gymnasts, divers and figure skaters.

MMA fans will never be satisfied. We all need to just accept it, for one reason or another this fight isn't getting love and I've accepted that and I don't really care either. I'll enjoy it and ill enjoy Machida/Hendo and that's what counts.

Yeah I don't understand. The card is stacked, this isn't boxing. The last Australian card was 10x worse than this.

If men weren't superior athletes we wouldn't need to separate men's and women's sports. There are literally no women good enough to compete at the highest level in any athletic sport.

Women get so uptight when a man says anything about women not being able to compete on the same level as a man but you never see men complain when a woman says " OH YEAH WELL YOU CAN NEVER CARRY LIFE INSIDE YOU!!!" lol yeah you are right. Good luck with that one. I guess thousands of years of genetics and history has shown nothing to warrant the idea that men are stronger and faster than women. I NEVER SAID A WOMEN CANT BE STRONG AND FAST but as a whole they will never be as athletic and strong as a man and popularity in womens sports has shown no sign of ever beating mens sports. Its a fact we have been debating for 8 pages of thread now.
