If UFC allowed women 5yrs ago then these women would've been champs, but thrust into the spotlight now at the beginning of their twilight years.
It just seems...unfair in a way.
Sorry, if you get smashed by a 1-3-1 fighter I don't care how many dues you've paid you don't belong on the highest level. Ken shamrock isn't in the UFC because he once was the greatest ever.
It's unfortunate that times have passed them by, but that doesn't mean they deserve anything. It sucks but that's a cold reality. And in many cases a reality most women aren't familiar with because in everyday life(outside of the business world) they aren't forced to deal with it.
Every woman I know complains about unfair pay and all that, but I know only a handful that actually work hard enough to be counted as doing the same work. And you know the crazy part? They all get paid the same if not more and did not hit a glass ceiling. However I don't work in the business world and I understand it is far worse in that field.
But my point remains the same, if you're not good enough you're not good enough and it doesn't matter if you used to be. It sucks but that's how it is.
