"Finally, it's time that we get that recognition. Dana's finally paying attention and I feel like the rest of the world is finally paying attention, too. I knew if we could just get that first time, watching women's MMA, that people would be hooked because we always come to fight. We fight really hard and nine times out of 10, we do it better than the boys do."

LOL

The context is she's saying that they fight _harder_ 9 times out of 10. Christ. I predict this will be UG front page news within 2 hours anyway and everyone will act like an idiot.

Generally speaking, the average female MMA fight is more exciting the average male fight. English isn't my first language but it seems like she meant it in that way, which is true.

I agree with this to some extent. Women don't seem to have any "feel out" process when the fight starts.

They always seem to go at full speed. Makes for some exciting fast paced battles.

Random guys? Yes of course. Trained male MMA fighters? Not a chance.

Only reason girls fight seem more exciting is because they use less technique. Standing up 90% of the girls just wing punches hoping to land one.

If she's saying that generally the women fight more all out and less concerned with points and decisions, I can't say I disagree too much.

The amount of damage a woman can produce to another one has nothing in comparison to what a man can inflict to another one if going full speed. No wonder they seem to be more exciting.

OK, now let's have a male athlete say the exact same thing, with the genders reversed, and see how long it takes for him to be shamed, decried as a misogynist, suspended, and forced to make a public apology.

Didn't everyone flip out and shit on GSP when he said he wasn't very interested in WMMA?

But even that is bullshit.

The women's fights are usually entertaining not because they fight harder, but because they are all sloppy brawlers. I enjoy women's MMA, but the skill level reminds me of mid-to-late 1990s men's MMA. None of them understand how to defend themselves from strikes. They just wade in and throw. It's entertaining to watch, but it doesn't mean they are fighting harder.
