"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

HOLY SHIT THAT IS ADORABLE.

Why do the top 2 known female mma fighters say such silly things? Seriously, stop interviewing them Phone Post

pretty much every female fighter is mentally as tough and gritty as the very toughest male fighters, because you have to have an extraordinarily huge chip on your shoulder to want to be a fighter if you are a girl.

but if she meant that they were actually more skilled or anything like that, she's talking out of her ass.

Gobulcoque - She isn't wrong, the girls usually fight like they want to kill each other.. something that is pretty rare in Mens fights lately.

It's not that they fight harder. They just fight like rock-em-sock-em robots because they don't know how to slip punches or use footwork to get in-and-out of the pocket without getting hit. It's exciting, but it has nothing to do with effort and everything to do with (a lack of) skill.

This.

I actually agree with her.  Women have been far more exciting and technical in their fights every since Ali's daughter brought women into boxing and by proxy Muay Tha and MMA spotlight.  Even when Chuck Norris's World Combat League was around, it was always the women who put on the best fights.

I think that I mentioned this before and Dana even agreed.

I don't know why they are so technical and exciting?  It seems that because women were't brought to fight, that they soaked up every aspect of the game and since women hate other women, they always came out as if it were personal.

LOL @ the UGBlog headline. She didn't say women are better at MMA, she said they fight harder.

Everybody on this board should be agreeing with the amount of 'BOOOOORING' or 'ZZZZZZZZZ' threads during every event.

When was the last time we wrote 'ZZZZZZZZZZ' during a women's fight? Not never.

Is this the same as when she said 9 times out of 10 wrestling beats Judo? She likes to use that term a lot but applies it out of context.

I.E. a state level wrestler (Tate) will not take down a judo Olympic medalist 9/10. And, as already stated, there are reasons why women stand and Wang more than men, namely a smaller talent pool and drastically less power in their punches.

I'm not shitting on female fighters but context must be given. Phone Post

Is this real life? Womens MMA is no where close to the same skill level as mens mma. Most womens MMA fights look like fights I was in during 3rd grade recess. There are some solid competitors in womens MMA but its few and far between. Nice try Tate!

Yeah, people just read the silly headline and feel like they have to immediately show how "alpha" they are...mainly by not reading or comprehending (both of which are pretty "beta" activities).

 

Whoever said women don't fight as skilled or technical as men has obviously never watched an Invicta card. Ever.

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.
How many women have 1 shot ko power. So they can do more where as a man could just drop you if rush in Phone Post

I would agree that the women's fights have been exciting in the UFC, although I would have to say that if the one woman's fight on a UFC card was not exciting and or boring, that the UFC would have failed horribly on the marketing of their new division. If there was or is a boring fight in the woman's UFC division, then everybody would say so and every woman would hear it. They are lucky there hasn't been one yet, and they're lucky the UFC has done a good job lighting the fire under their ass and put on the right fights. Plus of Ronda wasn't arm barring everyone then getting in the first round and being a drama queen, there'd be no Wufc period and no men are more than twice as good as woman. Phone Post 3.0

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.


Oh hey my prediction came true.
