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 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.

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?
