The history and the beginning of Fighter girls started back in 2001 the first and original women’s MMA martial arts website and store! This website was made for a few reasons first to promote women’s MMA the fighters and the fans! Most big sites back in 2001 did not want you to post about female fighters and if you did most of the members always had something negative to say about female MMA. Fighter girls is the home for women fighters and fans to share their stories post on our forum news, interviews, and thoughts about the women of MMA. This was long before we had all the fun social media like twitter Facebook and MySpace was just new to the public. Fighter girls became the first and original female MMA site in the world!
