i disagree, if a major organization starts sanctioning female fights, this will inspire other females to start doin mma.. i saw a great female fight at bodog: russia vs america, it was much more entertaining than all the other male fights. im all for female fighting, if they have the skills, why not ? and dont say that in males theres no such thing as "kicking the shit out of inferior athletes".. remember 3 days ago, crocop vs sanchez?
I do agree with where you're coming from.I'm all for anything which would encourage greater talent to come out of the woodwork and compete on a world stage.
Perhaps I misrepresented my point in a way.I think that the fight that you saw,even if more women did come along to compete,would be more the exception than the rule.
Look at how the HW divisions,both in the UFC up until recently and, to a somewhat lesser extent, in pro boxing, have long periods of time where competetive matches just aren't there and the divisions are dictated by one or a few good fighters owning on a lackluster talent field.If it's that hard to find good matchups of guys over 220 lbs,I see it being even moreso with women fighting.
Sure,some great athletes will come along from time to time,but it will be uncommon on a large enough scale to regularly have great matchups.I,for one,like competetive matchups,and gross mismatches such as CroCop v. Sanchez do nothing for me,nor did I mean to imply that such a thing was exclusive to women competetors.But that's not how every Cro Cop fight goes; it IS, however, how pretty much every fight with Leila Ali is.I just think that if you're out to see the best matchups and fighters, it wouldn't involve those with female fighters, and to say otherwise would imply that difference in gender has nothing to do with the appeal.If the fighters in question were just a league of guys with less skill,power,and athletecism, this wouldn't even be up for debate IMO.
