A Womans Divison?

Do you guy's think a womans division could work in the UFC?

I mean boxing has one, kickboxing has one, why not MMA? In fact, I remember seeing some old IFC tapes that had a few womans matches.

What do you guy's think? It could be interesting and entertaining.

It could... I think a better question is whether or not a Women's Division is something that the American populace could actually take seriously. Otherwise, the only real competitive Woman's MMA is going to occur outside of the states (as it currently is).

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

They aren't as strong and it would be laughable. You can put it in seperate PPVs with UFC but not in a UFC PPV, that would literally destroy the company people would be outraged.

It will probably happen! My only hope is that it doesn't turn out like women's wrestling in the WWE! That would be so tacky!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.
Superman owns a pair of Mac Danzig bird feeder pajamas.

I think we need to make UFC mainstream first. Because as much as we all would like to believe it, it is not. I tried talking to my friend today whome has watch the last 5 PPVs with me, and he thought Rich Franklin is a nobody. Its sad the majority of UFC fans dont know anyone beyond Liddell, Ortiz, and Hughes. Most people know what UFC is but 90% of people have no knowledge of it.

True... But not too many of them are getting paid any serious money here in the states to be able to do that as a Full Time job. A lot of homegrown talent here is fighting outside of the states in order to actually get paid close to what they are hoping to be paid. To be realistic, they probably make the debuting fighter's pay for the UFC look like a windfall inheritance in comparison.

UGH! This is exactly the f'n view that I'm talking about. Can you truthfully watch this video here of Megumi Yamushita and say that she doesn't have skill or strength? What about this video here of Watanabe Hisae(who happens to be the current DEEP womens champion)? Are we going to completely disregard skill? Hell, Royce Gracie was probably the smallest and weakest man out of all the entrants in the early UFCs, yet his presence completely revolutionized how the combat arts are viewed. Was he laughable when he triangled Dan Severn?

But back to the point: That view is plain mysogynistic... And I am being very nice on this. Just as it is with the UFC/Pride debate, can we not take some time out to to appreciate those in the ring that have skill; regardless or gender?

I vehemently agree. Which brings up another point. Regardless of whether a set womens' MMA competitions would be readily acceptable to the fans on this side of the pond, MMA has to become mainstream first. As much as that may dismay some folks, it is the truth. Hell, it took centuries before Womens' boxing became a reality. What more of MMA where most of the populace either confuses it for the WWE or "human **** fighting?"

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

Nope.

Dont even make me laugh.

Women. MMA. Mainstream? UFC?

It is a complete joke.

Men play the warrior role in entertainment. Thats why it is ok for men to fight each other. Its cool.

Women are eye candy in media. No one wants to see two women hit each other, and bleed. Its not hot. Its ugly and sweaty, and stupid for women to do that. If they HAVE to, let them verse the men, and get massacred. That should halt it completely.

For other sports, it was fine. Not fighting. Dont let American women take away the only thing that is truly ours, and ONLY ours.
