the main reason i dont enjoy WMMA very much yet, is there just isnt as much talent yet. i know ronda rousey is an Olympian, and i'm not talking about her. there just isnt enough high level female athletes in the cage yet. male MMA has been established for way longer and there fore, it has attracted some of the best athletes in the world.

Ya hear that, fellas? It seems you have to enjoy and support female fighters in order to be a true fan of our beloved sport.




Well, it is still mixed martial arts even when females are fighting instead of men. It's still MMA, right?

I don't know, I would say the WMMA field is similar to the old school MMMA field.
Ronda is like Royce right now.
Gotta start somewhere.

EXACTLY!

The state of Womens MMA isn't on the same level yet. I wouldn't say it's as bad as UFC 1, but more like UFC 30 something. There are strong competitors, but limited competition and no money to keep people interested. Invicta is trying to be Zuffa and change that. Might work or might not.
