    Roxy`s PC is broken, she sent me a message on SNS here is her message and idea,

    After reading what Tara said Dana White said about there not being enough women,

    I’d like to compile a list of female fighters.

    ***Let’s make a 125 division, 135, and 145 and up (I know 145-150 divisions are kind of sketchy right now…)

    ***Let’s include people who’ve had 5 fights or more. (Reason being, only men with experience get to fight in the UFC and WEC, right?)

    ***Let’s write (A) for active, and (I) for inactive or hasn’t fought for a while.

    ***Let’s write their records after their names.

    It’s a red herring. Why do promoters always have to lie when the truth is already known? He doesn’t like women fighting. He’s been told that he’s missing the boat. So I don’t need to see a list to know that he’s full of baloney. The only fighter I have seen lately that is a matchmaking problem is Lana Stafanac because there are very few fighters that can match up with her size. That’s not her fault. Otherwise it’s BS.

    agreed…

    besides that, the whole list thing would need revision as the entire situation and landscape is rapidly changing. EliteXC now has both CBS and co-promotion Strikeforce airing on NBC. and without even Bodog right now the main division has become 140+ with Young, Baszler, Carano, Kedzie, Cyborg, Evinger, all fighting at that weight and many more great and new female talent who will be transitioning wanting that much larger mainstream expo$ure will continue adding to that list…

    bottom line, the much bigger fights all go through 140 now. in addition, from a promotional standpoint and attracting more great matchups the bigger top ranked girls like Erin T, Cris Cyborg, Marloes plus those potentially coming into MMA like Germaine and Julia Budd are much better making 140 than 135 for those additional huge matchups…

    btw, a bunch of obvious are not even on the list…Elaina Maxwell, Erin T, Kaitlin, Nadia Van Der Vel, Debi Purcell, Laura D’Auguste…and, wouldn’t really go with the 5 fight limit, since you’re then excluding at least 2 to 3 times as many girls including most of those UK girls coslisa listed…plus, again many of those who will be transitioning soon could easily be immediate top rank threats even with 1 or less MMA fights…

    and sure a WEC division could possibly add more options, but it still doesn’t carry the UFC brand name, which is rapidly fading from singular prominence anyway…

    the bigger issue is gettin Rox a working pc 😛 dang grrl had i known would have had one of my crew hook you up when you were in LA for the FFF card… 😉

    Thanx coslisa , i will use google spread sheet for this list, it will be long and need sort function.

    format according to Roxy will be

    (Family name), (First name) /(status) /(records) /(weight class)/(country)

    What’s the purpose of this? There is already an amazing database here on fightergirls. At first, I thought it was just a post on the UG to demonstrate that there are more than a handful of fighters out there. There is no real need to create a new database…. ????

    paw that’s cool but i also kinda agree with, J and Frank…there’s already a more comprehensive database both pro/am right here, plus our rankings list so that could either be referenced to or copied posted and added to your list. and consider there are also *far* more girls involved in smaller promotions both sanctioned and non. so obviously for this purpose you’d ideally want TONS on the list including every level and record. for example we now have well over a million GFC members many of which are fighters but the problem is we have not had a chance to go through that entire list to organize and separate fighters, trainers, managers, promoters, sponsors, and just general fight fans/enthusiasts (yet). eventually we will have some of our crew catch up with and categorize that whole process but for now i’d say the current database here is the best source…

    plus, Rox is back in Japan now right, the “pc production mecca” so there must be some savvy Senpai there who could hook your grrl back up! 😉

    You could put Shayna at 20-4 from her fights in SD and Omaha.

    This wont be the actual database. Just a list to prove and make it clear that female division of MMA has enough fighters with looking at a glance.

    Database with some scripts are usuful but guys like that bald a$$hole wont look at it.

    A list with one web page, text file, will be easy to find out the fact. if u know database which can export to other formats like html/text file list, Please let me know. its much easier, dont need to input one by one.

    gonna update the list above , after this i will move to google spread sheet and publish it ASAP.

    PLUS Roxy needs laptop PC with ASCII Keyboad. not JIS 106 or 109( Japanese), It may take for a while till she get New PC to log on to FG.

    Over 840 fighters are on FG`s Database including boxers. need to shape up marking inactive fighters and Boxers…

    Don’t you get it? He’s lying. Showing him a friggin list won’t do any good. He’ll find some other lame excuse. The truth is he doesn’t like women fighting in the cage and he won’t listen.

    Josh & Liz —
    Are the fights in those records all pro? If so, send me the details & I will update the profiles here. As much info as possible would be helpful:

    opponent
    method, round, time
    event title/promotion
    date & location

    There is still an issue with separating out wins/losses per discipline in the database that I hope will eventually be worked out.

    Thanks!

    Who’s complaining but if you want to be naive and waste your time on something completely pointless that is readily available elsewhere, I guess you want to learn the hard way. Wishful thinking is the enemy of common sense.

    A list like this could be useful for promoters looking to match girls- it’s simple. Booking women is difficult and some promoters may not want to look throught a database of women to do it. So, this is not totally pointless. Will it get us in the ufc? no. But the more shows we get on the better.

    yeah totally agree about that part, a list like this will only help not just for DW but other promoters, although many of the list can be pulled from the database. also, it’s not likely but possible Dana could change, i have heard him finally admit making mistakes and letting his personal views affect his business decisions. also consider the Kimbo fight will likely be another 30 second demolition, so it’s actually the FEMALE fight on the largest mainstream major television network debut ever that will be the most anticipated and potentially best matchup/fight of the card, so that will now be a reality which cannot be denied…

    I agree that a list like this could be helpful for promoters. I have had promoters emailing me recently for lists of women in certain weight classes & have had to ‘dig around’ in the database to give them names. You can search by a weight, but women are only assigned one weight in the database & it is not necessarily a ‘class’ & women are moving up & down all the time.

    Maybe if there were a link you could click on like “Active fighters @ 125” and “Active fighters @ 135” etc, that would be more useful for promoters in locating women. Women could be listed in more than one class. I also think it would be nice if the current database were searchable by state or region (as opposed to hometown)– I think it would be helpful for locating amateurs in the area looking for fights.

    I think it would be great if FighterGirls could be the homebase for this somehow and could assist promoters in finding women for their cards.

    I already have an excel file with all of the women in the database with first & last name, but not with Activity, weight, or current record (I use it to track the work I’m doing when updating records).

    That’s a lot of talking from me & trying to make more work for the Web Crew! But those are just some thoughts.

    you’ve basically missed off half the woman from the UK that I gave you. Also Lisa Higo is 115lbs and active.

    Why don’t you have lists for 105 and 115? if you are looking at the japanese market they are big categories over there whereas 125 and 135 are big in the USA.

    Or you could email me — jessica@fightergirls.com — I am keeping the women’s profiles & fights up to date for the database! 🙂

    It would be great if fighters who are already registered could add info or update us on weight/etc.. I also talked with Becky last night about implementing some changes to the database to make it easier to use / search.
    Thanks!

I have had promoters emailing me recently for lists of women in certain weight classes & have had to ‘dig around’ in the database to give them names. You can search by a weight, but women are only assigned one weight in the database & it is not necessarily a ‘class’ & women are moving up & down all the time.

    Maybe if there were a link you could click on like “Active fighters @ 125” and “Active fighters @ 135” etc, that would be more useful for promoters in locating women. Women could be listed in more than one class. I also think it would be nice if the current database were searchable by state or region (as opposed to hometown)– I think it would be helpful for locating amateurs in the area looking for fights.

    I think it would be great if FighterGirls could be the homebase for this somehow and could assist promoters in finding women for their cards.

    I already have an excel file with all of the women in the database with first & last name, but not with Activity, weight, or current record (I use it to track the work I’m doing when updating records).

    That’s a lot of talking from me & trying to make more work for the Web Crew! But those are just some thoughts.

    Or you could email me — jessica@fightergirls.com — I am keeping the women’s profiles & fights up to date for the database! 🙂

    It would be great if fighters who are already registered could add info or update us on weight/etc.. I also talked with Becky last night about implementing some changes to the database to make it easier to use / search.
    Thanks!

    you’ve basically missed off half the woman from the UK that I gave you. Also Lisa Higo is 115lbs and active.

    Why don’t you have lists for 105 and 115? if you are looking at the japanese market they are big categories over there whereas 125 and 135 are big in the USA.
    Sorry, but Roxy`s original idea was “over 5 fights pro”. i had to drop most of UK fighters, but inputed all names in my original file.

    Hers another idea. i know UK female MMA was just has started , how about making “UK fighters List” beside of this? Should i consider all fighter u gave me are active and ready to fight in pro-leagues? If so pls let me know i wil make another list, also 105 and 115 classes.

    Dont forget to mail chad or J for complete data pls. this list is just brief list who are now active and which class they fight(or thay want to fight).

    btw, US ogs use Pound=lbs for weight, we use kg. How about UK fight secene? they r now using lbs and unified rules classfication? or still use kg?

    The UK list is already split into active fighters at pro rules heaviest to lightest who as far as I know are looking for fights, then non pro rules and inactive fighters last.

    We also use kg in the uk for fights.

    Do fights that are, as we call it, semi-pro (smack girl rules no head shots on the ground, no elbows at all, no knees to head) class in the pro record for this list?

    oh i see, so semi-pro records in UK should be listed like Japanese Smack fighters. hold on a sec im goona publish list changing -125 to 105 and 115 with full name i have inputed.

    Ama in UK uses same rules with semi-pro? or more safty rules with headguard, sin guards, like Ama shoot? its just an quick idea. dont want to ttt this thread anymore i will edit this post for if i would change or add something in the list

    oops, sorry again. i should have said “UK female MMA is not known yet” ?
    but sadly. its true that ur fight scene has been almost ignored. Not only female MMA, UK MMA itself has not been known at all. i have bought one of famous Japanese Mag several years ago, it covered most of fight events all over the world. it included EVEN those Muay Thai `s ranking of 2 top stadiums Rajadumnern and Lumpinee every month.

    in that Mag “Pride and Glory” was introduced, but the review was ahhh… They just said like “UK and Spain still need time for MMA(Sougou-Kakutougi).

    Dont take it bad, maybe it was just coz of SHOOTO was not popular there(the Mag was pushing SHOOTO). SHOOTO still doesnt have any UK fighters in their EU ranking.

    Sweden,Finland,Switzerland,Lithuania,Belgium,Netherlands,and Norway fighters are listed but no one from UK… although some of French fighters are ranked although MMA just have permitted recently(Most of those french fighters must have fought in Holland i guess).

    And thats the one of the reasons that why i wrote an idea to make “UK fighters list”. i must be ignorant about UK fight scene but at the same time not so many information from there.

    If this kind of brief list can be useful for promoters, UK list will be a good advertisement especially for Japanese promotions which have female division like Pancrase, SmackGirl, Deep. 48kg and 52 kg class are popular but sometimes those promotions cant matchup appropriately.

    Tomimatsu`s accident. cancelation of opponent for Shinashi from Thai land at SmackGirl. Those could be avoided if they knew UK fighters who are ready to fight.

    btw according to Tomimatsu`s mother`s(it was not her Father!) blog, after satying several weeks in hospital. She came back to home and now recovering. Seems still needs several months to come back to the ring though. Teh mother also wrote that Pancrase apologized and promised to think about new safety rules for the fight ( maybe shin guard or something?).

    in the uk

    pro = ufc rules
    semi pro = smack girl but no time limit on ground
    amateur = no head shots at all same as old shooto c class

    however some shows now do amateur using pro rules but no elbows or knees to head (and no pay LOL)

    Our school of BJJ/MMA (Trinity Jiu Jitsu) is located in the Krav Maga school in San Francisco. We have over 600 students in the school and we have about a core group of 80 students (5 competitve NHB fighters and about 10 no gi competitive submission grapplers) who are involved in the programs we run here. “LethaL” Lana Stefanac is my assitant and she has the girls fight team “Ladies of Pain” who train with us as well. Lana has been a great addition to our programs and the students love her.

    All women are welcome to come train but please first contact me if you are visiting so I can get you into the program while here in the city.

    There are great things happening with us including the start of a ladies UFC style show (modelled after the men’s The Ultimate Fighter show), I will keep you posted on this as we start productions for this show. Right now we are taking care of contracts and other logistics. I have been chosen to be the head trainer of the athletes on this show.

    Dana Whites excuses are wearing thin with me. He just does not female fighters in the UFC. Period. You draw your own conclusions. Mine is old fashion male smile. Male machismo. The wish not to be shown up by a women.
