Its says "I've never" and "I dont like", so you really shouldnt need it explained to you that its my personal opinion. Its absolutely clear from the text.i didnt express any views "on women" either; i dont know where you got that from. Dont try and be all twisty with what i wrote, i hate people who do that.

Whoa calm down dude. Firstly what is with the homosexual thing? No link at all.Secondly he was only expressing some views, nothing offensive there.

Do you represent Fighters Only Magazine's views on WMMA and women, or just your own latent homosexual views?

i've never been able to get into WMMA, i just dont like to watch women fight. Or play soccer, i cant watch women's soccer either. It just seems wrong somehow.

That sucks. She's gotta make a living but Strikeforce doesn't fight her. Not surprised.

There is no interest in WMMA outside of Gina, Tate, Coenen and Cyborg for the freak factor.
