WMMA has to start somewhere.

As soon as the UFC gets Rousey out of her Showtime contract, they will likely do her versus Cyborg, but then what ?

After Cyborg/Ronda there aren't any other intriguing matchups in WMMA for the foreseeable future.

The article is a little misleading, as Dana said himself many times that there will be no 'women's division' until the quality of WMMA improves considerably.

I agree that at this point the depth may be lacking, unless they can somehow steal every decent wmma from all the other organisations.
However, this opens up a fantastic possibility for me to become a ring man...I can't wait for tryouts, I haven't had a carb in 10 years!

3 years and 2 purchased womens orgs later and we will have a 140 pound womens division.

I love womans MMA the fights are bad ass. I went to a smaller show and the womans fight was the best fight of the night, two girls who knew how to punch went toe to toe in the center till one got slept.

I think Dana just likes Rousey. He doesnt see anyone beating her and shes already popular. I doubt we see a fight without her in it on a main card. IT could build popularity with the fans who have never seen woman scraps so i like it.

Imo Women's mma isn't nearly ready for this yet.



And flyweight was? At least the women can headline big cards...

Dominick Cruz and Mighty Mouse basically have no drawing power

While Carano (probably retired) and Rousey filled stadiums

There is no way this is going to take 3 years, 1 year tops.

I learnt that Gogo focuses on the skill level and the competition, well somebody else's attention might be elsewhere. To each there own though.

Double Yuck.

Just find saying yuck to WMMA.. ironic

Let me put it this way, could we agree that Rousey could break professional mens arms around her weight class at least?

I think it's awesome. Woman's MMA always seems to have really exciting bouts. They're not ready for PPV, but I'd love to see them on the FX, Fuel, and Fox shows.

I'm not so keen on female MMA in Ufc
I wouldn't ever travel for a female main event ever
I like the fights I'm strikeforce. But Ufc has enough weight classes
