Fail to see a difference. A fight is a fight, a good fight is a good fight.

 


But don't you see a difference in overall skill level?

Without the skill I can't get into it. Same with the dudes who just throw haymakers wildly.

Some of the girls(not all of them) on Invicta looked drunk.

Seriously.

Like 2 drunk dudes outside a bar but with no power.


The same could be said with ANY fight. Realistically the talent pool isn't as deep with men but then again some of the fights in the UFC are the same. TUF is practically created for the talented drunk dude to learn how to punch properly.

The women will follow suit soon.

Yeah I guess we'll see what happens and yes some of the UFC fights look that way too.

CREamed_by_DongJ - Barely 30 percent of the poll is in support of WMMA.

Sorry.

Those 30 percent will not show up at the gates either.

BLAM!

Because of what? Breasts?

Bigger men could say the same about smaller men.

testosterone is the main reason. WMMA is boring.

Well said Son of Neckbone.

WMMA for me:

Biggest Pro: most of them come to fight. Not score points.

Biggest Con: I really hate seeing a girl get hit in the face. I literally can't watch at times. Phone Post

Seriously? Please explain what testosterone has to do with it?

JeffersonDArcyChoke - It's just that it will never move beyond Christy Martin/Laila Ali territory at best. Phone Post

Christy Martin could have been part of the biggest fight in women's boxing up to that point if she had agreed to fight Lucia Rijker. IMO women's MMA moved beyond Christy Martin territory when Gina Carano agreed to fight Chris Cyborg.

Thanks.

Girls punching each other in the face doesn't bother me specifically, but a WMMA fight that doesn't get stopped when it should have (eg Cyborg/Carano via Kim Winslow) does piss me off more than the men.

Biggest pro for me: WMMA offense seems to be significantly better than their defense.

Chris27 - I voted 2 but it could have been worded better.

No I dont enjoy it as much as the mens div but I do enjoy it and will watch it, not just Ronda either, I'll watch any mma men or womens but of course I'm more of a fan of mens mma.



This. There's something I don't like about watching women get knocked out, but if the fight is intriguing, I'll watch it. Phone Post

I dig it.

I have a fairly extensive collection of Japanese SmackGirl VHS tapes.
