Perhaps I have to go back and re-read the thread, but has anyone said the UFC sucks because they have women fights? Or the card sucked because a woman fight was on the main card? Or are they just saying they don't like WMMA just as people are saying they don't like Jake Shields?

I think in previous converstaions on here regarding WMMA the tone has sometimes swayed the way of "the UFC sucks because they have women fights". Very rarely, but opinions have seemed rather derogatory towards WMMA in places.

I think the ones backing WMMA just need thicker skin. Fighters and posters get bashed here and no one cries foul besides the WMMA backers.

To be honest, it only really matters what 'you' think. If you're a fan of WMMA, what does it matter what some online nobody has to say.

It goes without saying that WMMA is no different than men's MMA in one regard - there will be fun fights, and there will be poor fights. I could see why someone might not care for Davis vs. Sexton, and that's their right.

Alexis Davis is literally the third best female fighter in the world, and she makes Royce Gracie look like Mirko Cro Cop.


Im absolutely stunned that she couldn't finish what was, for all intents and purposes, a can.


This division is literally worse than Heavyweight. Literally...and by a wide margin.

You are taking your argument to fraudulent extremes. There is more apathy and contempt for the smaller men's weight classes and with far less reason than for the female division.

If Rosi Sexton is a "can", you've clearly never watched any Womens MMA.

I just quoted the wrong person. I meant to respond to what Cowgirl said.

I don't enjoy watching bad fighters so yeah I typically avoid it.

Rosi is a can, and I clearly dont watch women's mma with any regularity.


Both statements are highly accurate.
