Women in the UFC????
 
I heard a rumour ... always lots of rumours ... that UFC was examining the possiblity of opening up a woman's division somewhere down the line .. I don't like it, it's getting like wrestling ... don't want to sound sexist but women's sports never do as well as men's, just don't have the same ferocity

i dont know about that there are some good women out there that i know and have trained with and there fights are still pretty entertaining

I watched an IFC fight between Jeremy Horns Mrs and an ex power lifter, Horns Mrs was good with standup and won the fight however i believe though some women will display good skill etc i dont think it will be what TV wants or most fight fans including me.

Women billiards players actually get paid more then men. I believe this could possibly be the same situation for the same reasons.

Maybe the Octagon ring girls can go at it in their skimpy outfits!!

Go look at the female MMA posts I made, there is some good talent.

I say it depends on what they wear if its anything like the ring girls outfit why not. If they want to do it lets get it on!

as long as they are hot then it's ok with me. Maybe they could just do a women's hot oil wrestling match instead of one of the undercard fights?
