Cyborg vs Gina? I dont care how good Gina can be, if she ends up being hurt, MMA will take a huge blow in popular media. It will be pictured as bloddy ruthless sport, with no morale whatsoever.

There is nothing discriminating about seperating men from women when it comes to fighting.

This fight is not happening.

Gina in the ufc, or women in general in UFC, no problem, but no fights between men and women...
Hey man not this cyborg:

This would be a good thing and if the fight did well hopefully Dana would be more open to having a women's division in the WEC or UFC.

it would also be a way of gauging interest in a WEC women's division.

WEC would be a perfect fit, for this fight and when it did well as I am sure it would, then possibly a women's division.

I would actually prefer if this fight took place elsewhere simply because Dana just wants to cash in on this one fight and then would drop them both. He has already said he doesnt plan on promoting a Womens division in the UFC or the WEC.

I hope another company like Strikeforce or Affliction picks up the womens division and regularly promotes it.



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21
