Women in MMA
Hey everybody. Just wanted to make a few comments on how I feel about women competing in MMA. I want to say congrats to the new Women's Strikeforce champion and fellow Gaspari athlete Ronda Rousey
. It was pretty cool to see a women't fight being the headliner in such a big established organization in MMA. I don't know if it's ever happened before but it was nice to see. And from what I saw they did not disappoint. It was a very exciting fight to watch. In fact any fight cards I have watched that included a women's fight, the women totally stole the show. I enjoy watching them. They go all out and really work to finish a fight. I have a couple of female teammates at The Pit Elevated, Tandy Ogden Schaeffer and DeAnna Bennet, and they are excellent fighters. We all train together and beat each other up. I see them both doing big things. With the UFC absorbing Strikeforce here very soon I wonder what is gonna happen to the female fighters of that organization. I know Dana White has said that the UFC will not be having any female weight classes but I think they should reconsider. There are some excellent female fighters, they put on a hell of a show and they can make them some money. That's a huge target market they are not tapping into. i know many females watch and love the UFC but i think it would bring in many more female viewers if there were some women's weight divisions. I think they deserve the chance to become superstars too. How progressive would that be? The biggest boy's club fight organization in the world adding some women's weight classes and paying them what the guys get paid. It sounds like the right thing to do and like an excellent business decision to me. I don't know, that's just my opinion. Whatever happens keep on fighting ladies. You are excellent athletes and deserve as much of the spotlight as they guys do.
