UFC needs to BUY Invicta and hire Shannon Knapp to run the women's division completely.

Don't be a stingy fuck Dana. Do it right. You don't think you could sell Cyborg, Rousey, Rose, Waterson, Penne, Chambers, Hyatt, Duke etc etc??

Come on, man. There is a ton of easy marketing and easy money there if you just open up. Otherwise you're going to end up getting stale with the Rousey shit. Women's MMA is comparable to Women's soccer or Tennis more than it is to WNBA or women's boxing and everyone can see it.

Get after it man. The hardcore fans dig this shit.

Immediate satisfaction? Because at this point any less than a million or two is worth it to the UFC for the time they can save to have all of the girls they want and hype them up on their schedule?

With how little Women's MMA and their organizations are worth right now it's essentially house money to gobble it up and do it on your own.

^ im sure lorenzo is already planning more divisions after the amazing success of the 135lb female debut.  There was so much MMA buzz before and after that event it was ridiculous.

Also keep in mind none of the male 155, 145, 135 and 125 lb divisions have pulled the ppv numbers Ronda has pulled. 

Female MMA is a cash cow.  will every division pull like Ronda?  maybe not... but the media exposure females get cannot be matched by their male counter parts.  And Female MMA means 3 more titles you can headline events with.

more events more money.

RobinHood -  Why buy a promotion, when Dana can pay to get the girls he wants without the having the cost of the Invicta on his balance sheet.

Invicta is losing money and will continue to do so till a tv deal is struck. Phone Post

you can use the promotion to develop divisions you dont have and talent like they did with the wec.

if female 145 doesnt have the talent yet then you can use invicta to develop it until it's ready for the UFC.
