Ronda Rousey coming to UFC can change the sport   [View Full Version]

As Ronda Rousey becomes heralded as the first woman fighter in the UFC, it's amazing how quickly this has all happened.

Even more, one asks the questions, where is this going and what is the ceiling?

It's impossible to answer. But in cases like this, timing is everything. And the timing looks awfully good.
There are still some who cling to the notion that MMA fans don't want to see women battle in the cage, and it won't work in the UFC. But there is already years of evidence in Strikeforce and other organizations that prove differently.

Women have already shown they are viable on the card. And it's also been proven that with the right mix of personalities, women can be successful headlining major shows...

Don't really agree that it will change the sport. It's not like it will be something people havent already seen. However ill give it a chance

I have no intrest in womans fighting. There are so few high level woman fighters and their skill levels very a ton. I don't like it at all. The sport itsself isn't ready for the big stage. It cheapens the value of a UFC undercard. Dana has never really been a fan till Ronda. Hes going to make her a big star then when she fizzles out I can't see him putting the money into it. Also seems like a way to keep Bellator from grabing the top woman and pretty much just handcuffing womans fighting by doing so. I might be wrong but this all feels way too soon.

so now ronda is in the ufc she fights what one or two legit women and then every couple of months she destroys a overmatched scrub there just isnt a deep enough talent pool

Every Rousey fight I have seen has been great, I'm all for it as long as she has good opposition. This is a step forward for the ufc, opening new doors to a whole new audience base, that being women.
