Vince, thats a pritty interesting way of looking at things. I wonder if you have ever watched any kind of professional fighting before. I think not. Otherwise you would have known that women started boxing against men. Some even fought better than the men. Now today in boxing and MMA they have these amazing things call weight classes. They have like a 10 lbs spred or so. Also the have a thing called "men's" and "women's". There is enough women fighting that I don't think that they will fight against a man and if they do they took the fight no one forces them in the ring. Subscribe to the "fight network" for a month and you will see that they are already fighting in other events (woman vs woman). Thanks for the chuckle bud.

Vince, you seem to be commenting with the presumption that men are stronger or physically superior than women. I remember an MMA instructor's favourite recollection was when one of the 5 foot 2, 100 pound girls in his club (a high ranking belt, mind you) took down a 200 pound male and made him tap.

If you do not agree with UFC style, full contact fighting being a sport and entertainment, then fine --- I respect that. But referring to an aspiring female fighter as "Wacky Wendie" and assuming she will be pummelled by any male fighter is both sexist and ignorant.

thats sexist, girls fight girls and boys fight boys, if they can find people, women can be just as strong as men.

I am somewhat disgusted with the thought that it has somehow become macho that men try to beat up or mutilate women in the name of sport. What will be the reaction when BIG STUD pummels WACKY WENDIE into the canvas? Way to go big man! Big Hero. Yah, you showed her!

What is WACKY WENDIE trying to prove by going into the ring with BIG STUD? Our society has developed into a very sick one when this is regarded as normal behaviour or entertainment. What would we think of the Taliban if they participated in this type of macho practice? Not too civilized is it?

One must look at the optics. It all depends where we are looking from.

From anywhere one looks at it you can't help to think that it looks sick!

Those who know what martial arts are all about, know that women can be just as dangerous as men with the proper training. This goes particularly for UFC, which is divided into weight classes. If women want to enter the sport, why not? The only men who do not want to see it are the ones who are too chicken to have a woman kick their butts!

There already is women fighting im MMA. I believe its through bodog. The UFC has some of the tightest rules out there eg. no kicking to the head when a person is on the ground. I was watching a lesser event the other day and was shocked to see that they allowed kicks to the head when the other fighter was on the ground.

There are some "women" that I wouldn't really classify as true women. Let those ones step into the ring.

Not every Man wants to climb into the ring, but if some Women want to - Let'Em !!!

All married men know that women practice UFC now and then. Like they say, "If you wanna fight, get married"
