The first time two women fought in the UFC octagon, it was cause for an all-out media blitz by the world's largest MMA promotion. The second time felt more like just another fight — only better.

At The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale in Las Vegas, undefeated bantamweight Cat Zingano (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) came from behind to beat former Strikeforce champion Miesha Tate (13-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) by third-round TKO in easily the most exciting and brutal bout on the 12-fight card.

The UFC deemed Zingano and Tate worthy of $50,000 "Fight of the Night" bonuses, and fans were reminded why female MMA fighters have a reputation for stealing the show in a male-dominated sport...

I wasn't a fan of Wmma at first. I was first exposed to Gina and it was way back in the day of strikeforce and I think they had 3 minute rounds..I was like eh..what? No thanks. But I've definitley been won over now seeing some great women fighters in Bellator and now the UFC. Hopefully divisions will get deeper and UFC can have more than just one division.

I hope you're not referring to GSP. Just because GSP is boring doesn't mean anyone has the right to call him boring.

I take it you're not a big GSP fan. I thought you were because of that Av you sported after UFC158.

I agree that the women are proving their worth. The 2nd ever UFC woman's fight and they won FOTN. I enjoyed it.
