Same here, I really enjoy female MMA for various reasons (some I'm not particularily proud of...)
But there are some decent wars in female MMA, of course the skill can't be compared to top of the line UFC fighters, but the potential is here to make it a big part of MMA in a few years of time, if promoted decently (and we know Zuffa can be pretty good at this).

SF could be the perfect "lab" for this, give it a bit more exposure, wait some time, see if you get some incoming talent and you can probably make it entertaining enough.

On a psychological level, female MMA is very different and brings another dimension to the table.

and well... I'm all for MMA and actual great fighters and whatnot, but come on, what is wrong with you guys ? you wouldn't watch two chicks going after each other for 15 minutes ?

truth is, I NEVER watch female MMA when my wife is around, I don't know how she would take it, feels a bit like watching some sort of "porn" in the way that you don't really do it in front of people... anyway...

all for female MMA, the skill's decent, so are the chicks, bring it on already!

If female MMA is some sort of lesbian porn substitution, what makes that then of male MMA¿

I hope it does stick around because just like male fighters these girls fight for a living. But even with the help of the UFC these female fighters will never get big.

The people talking against Women's MMA sound just like the nay-sayers back in '92 and '93 when the Men's UFC first started. The talent pool was a hell of a lot shallower in the Men's ranks then than it is in the Women's ranks now, but people saw it for what it was - a genuine expression of combat, which showed the world what worked and what didn't.

Lots of people said it was too violent, even barbaric, that no one wanted to see blood pouring from huge gashes, that no state would sanction such a spectacle.

A funny thing happened, though - those in the know saw the true value of what was being presented, and it went on to change the face of martial arts and televised sporting events forever.

I wouldn't even consider paying to see a boxing match, but I'm the first one out the door to the local sports bar on UFC PPV nights. Lots of other guys feel the same way, and I think a lot of girls would too if they could see other girls testing their skills and determination and making a name for themselves.

The UFC really didn't take off until you could see fights for free on Spike, after which time everyone jumped on the bandwagon. Now, we need to do the same for the Women's division, give them the exposure they need to become mainstream and build a following.

The guys who are queasy about seeing girls defend themselves make me wonder - what would you want them to do if some putz assualted them and you weren't around? I would want my girls to be able to handle themselves confidently, using the skills that they picked up watching and practicing what worked for other girls in the same situation.

If you didn't mind watching teeth fly out of that sumo's mouth or seeing that pony-tail guy get a big new bald spot back in UFC1 and 2, I think you can handle a couple of sturdy girls duking it out for a few rounds. If not, vote with your remote. In any case, we should give them the mainstream exposure that the men get and see what happens. You just might be surprised...

I hope it continues, and I am sure it will, and despite the shit Dana's says about there not been a deep enough pool of womens fighters out there, what he really means is that there is not enough famous womens fighters out there, but check this site out and you will see there is a lot of womens fighters with good records, easily enough to run a couple of good divisions

http://www.fightergirls.com/fighters.asp?L=A

listed on the link is just the fighters with surnames starting with A, use the links alphabetic links to see the rest.
