I get the feeling that some here do not understand the difference of expressing opinions and just being an a$$h0le... I am sure chauvinism will go the way of bullying.

I just think it is somewhat silly to expect women to be as athletic as men. These 2 individuals were competing on the highest level in their sport and division. When I watch women's tennis I don't think about how much harder the guys hit or how their technique is better. I enjoy it because it is still the highest level offered for women.

So in my mind hating on women for being less athletic or skilled is just as stupid as hating flyweights for being tiny.

No, it isn't.

The entire point of watching sports at a professional level is to watch talent...which pretty much every woman not named Ronda Rousey severely lacks.

If I wanted to watch bum fights I could go to a bar or any other medium of watching two randoms throw sloppy haymakers at each other until they both get tired.


There's talent at Flyweight, their size is merely aesthetic. The only problem with the division is that the champion is boring as hell. Fights like Linker-Gaudinot were objectively good by any stretch.




Not to mention women's tennis is certainly not at the level of the men, but the women certainly are talented. You don't feel cheated or like you are missing anything by watching the women's game instead of the men's. Tennis, along with volleyball are too sports that are fantastic to watch at times for women...and sometimes soccer

Sounds like a majority of men's HW division.
