i would love to see liz carmouche win just to see what the ufc would do with the woman's division afterwards.

i'm also a little irritated "the face of women's mma" has gone from gina carano to ronda rousey while skipping over cyborg.

i would like to see carmouche win, but not pulling against ronda either. i just hope it's a good fight.

also, cyborg got skipped bc these promoters weren't looking for a "face of wmma", they were looking for a "pretty face of wmma"

Cyborg got skipped over because she was busted for roids. They dont want any fighter who is a champion and star to be a cheater no disrespect to cyborg

Dana can't say that because he gave Sonnen not one but two title shots after getting busted.

Nope. 1st round armbar coming Liz's way.

i don't think it was the roids as much as her looks like the other guy said. she had 2 years in between the time she beat down gina and when she got busted.

i kind of want that though, i want the face of women's mma to look like a fighter, not a playmate. and no disrespect to ronda either, i love watching her collect arms. i just think it's kind of silly the way the ufc put all their eggs in one basket with the women's league.

seriously, how is what the ufc is doing right now any different than when elite xc did with kimbo slice (except that ronda has proven herself in mma more than kimbo did)? it's a move dana white blasted them for, setting up a whole promotion under 1 star, yet 5 years later, he is setting up an entire division for 1 star.

i guess what i'm getting at is that i would like it better if they were like "hey, we got a bunch of legit women fighters now!" not "hey, we got this awesome woman who arm bars everyone and we are throwing her in with some random woman we won't even bother to mention".

i mean really, if they only have 1 fighter, they should just have her fight dominick cruze rather than start a whole division. i'm sure she could hang with the men. isn't that what equal rights is all about anyway?

If Liz wins it would be biggest upset of alltime
And Dana would give Rhonda a immediate title shot

I think it was the roids, and rightfully so. A female fighter doesn't have to be pretty, she can be destructive and have appeal. Definitely one or the other is needed. I think people would be fascinated with Cyborg and her finishing ability/brutality, but she's a cheater and she doesn't deserve the limelight.
