UFC heavyweight (and boyfriend of rising WMMA star Rose Namajunas) Pat Barry recently was interviewed by MMA Fighting, and declared that on any local fight card, if there is a female fight, it will be the most exciting.
"I can't wait until (Rose) takes over and I can sit down and don't have to do this any more," said Barry.
"I'll bet all my dollars on her. I'll sit back and eat my chicken and go 'yah - you got it.'
"I'll post this challenge to anyone. You got a local show, not a big time show, go to a local show, that's got 10, 12, 15 fights on the card and have one female fight on the card, and tell me that's not the most exciting fight of the night.
"And that's every time. You go to a local show, whenever those two ladies start fighting, the crowd goes crazy. They go absolutely insane.
"They have a different emotion gene in them, that when they fight, something comes out in them that us as men, we cannot produce… There's something else they do that we can't do.
"I can't wait til she gets to the UFC. It's coming."
