Lol, it was worth the vote downs. I originally had a paragraph about how the octagon was going to be smaller and how the UFC regretted shuttering the WEC as it would have been the perfect set up for their lite division.If any of this happens btw it's just a coincidence.

So you're getting all pissed off at your own invented plans for what the UFC's going to do with WMMA? Fake drama, you sound like a WWE fan.

why would UFC sign a female fighter when they have no female division? again, super fights. they're not interested in women's MMA or Rousey, they want the money she will bring in. it's gonna boil down to 1 female champion and then they're gonna sign 1 fight deals to other women MMA fighters just to feed her for more PPV revenue. it's complete bullshit and people will eventually catch on to how pointless her fights are and lose interest. this is actually worse for womens MMA IMO, as it turns it into more of a gimmick and not so much a sport. hell, DW himself was even quoted this year as saying that a womens division wouldn't work in the UFC due to the lack of talent, but now all of a sudden guess what? fuck this shit, i'll watch it for the sheer violence but literally can't take it anymore serious than the WWE or current-day's to you K-1 and Spike, make us proud baby!

I'm extremely disappointed by this news. For one it means Strikeforce, which was a perfect place for women's MMA, is going to be officially dead very soon (another great org killed off by Zuffa). #2 why in the world would anybody want to watch women fight? Yeah it's kind of a cool commodity to see, but why watch the WNBA when the NBA is available? I respect their talent but see no reason to pay to watch a person who's automatically going to be at least 75% weaker and much slower than their counterpart. I feel like the UFC just took a huge step backwards. Hopefully they will keep the women exclusively on the free Fox cards.
