When Heather Donnelly's neighbor introduced her to the Ultimate Fighting Championship about a year ago, she thought the competition was brutal. But the bloody bouts, filled with kicking, punching and wrestling, caught her attention.

Nice Leland. Any idea on the lust to actual love of the sport ratio?

That's a pretty cool report; I'm glad this sport is getting past being a giant sausage fest.

Haha no I got her into it. And she got her friend to watch it. So I am helping support the female fanbase! I work with some old ladies and I try to get them to watch it, no luck haha

I turned my wife on to it a couple of years ago, I have a BBQ a couple of buddies, some beer, shots ect....so at first it was just the environment. Now with all my buddies getting married like me, it's even bigger. When I went to UFC 76, she was actually jealous!! I offered her a ticket like a month before the fight and she had declined to watch the kids....then she watched the commercial and was pissed!!
