if Zuffa still needs more reassurance as to how big Gina Carano really is, Yahoo has provided it. The website has come up with a list of the 10 Most Influential Women Of 2008 and "Crush" was ranked #5. #1, for those curious, was Angelina Jolie.

yeah I seem to recall an article talking about how the WEC was going to use female fighters, I still haven't seen any of it, their poster girl was really hot if I recall, but if ProElite sells to someone besides Zuffa, which I hope they don't, I really wish that the UFC just bought IFL and ProElite and taken as many people as they could.

I would love to see Gina fighting in the WEC. She's exciting and very marketable. That fact that she's a woman shouldn't matter.

Let's keep those particular thoughts to ourselves, guys. As for Gina being very marketable, no doubt about that. She'd be a great way to help draw more female fans in, and her AG time certainly helps a lot. I still don't understand, beyond Dana maybe not being a fan of women's MMA, why Zuffa is still so hesitant to give her and other female fighters a chance.

well in interviews he talks about how the womens mma scene isn't developed enough to warrant starting divisions, but has stated that hes open to "one-off" fights here and there....i think he's right too...starting a division or a couple divisions will be tough cuz its like the heavyweight divisions; you have the cream of the crop and then nothing else.....give it a couple years to develope and we will starting seeing some prominant formation....hell, its taken how many years to get to this point in male mma? doesnt happen overnight

I don't think Dana has seen the Indiana-based Hook 'N Shoot promotion either. They've been doing women's fights for some time now including tournaments from when they were BodogFight affliliates. Having seen a few of their fights I think it's safe to say they are a good example of how to put on good women's fights.

I think they should start out like male MMA, openweight tournaments. Then Gina Carano probably wouldn't be so influential though for men (at least when it comes to influencing a hard on)
