    I suspect there are one or two of you out there lol

    Realistically, how long do you think it will be before the UFC holds a female match on one of its events?

    I don’t think female mma needs the UFC, it is a good enough product to thrive and become big without their support. People have assumption that everything needs the UFC logo stamped on it and that’s not true. More and more casual fans are getting exposed to mma outside of the UFC. There is gonna be female mma fight(Gina and Kaitlin) on network television next month, that is a bigger deal than fighting for the UFC.

    UFC=holy grail of MMA any one thinking other wise is just kidding themselves.
    Being on network television doesnt automatically mean the ratings will be very good. While it is GREAT exposure every one seems to be counting their chickens before the eggs hatch. It’s a huge risk being taken, and they certainly have the right girls headlining…. but just cuz you got your line in the water doesn’t mean the fish are gonna take the bait. (did I use enough crappy cliches in this post?)

    That maybe true, but it is Dana White that decides what he wants to do with his company, if he doesn’t want females in the ufc or featherweights and batamweights in the ufc, 6-10 year old kids in the ufc, or midget and amputees in the UFC, who are we to stop him. female mma being on network television is a very sweet deal, why complain about not dating the captain of the football team when you’re dating the captain of the basketball team? There is no guarentee that the Elite XC card on CBS will score with the ratings, but at least this is a chance to see how what mainstream America’s reception to female mma is. As big as the UFC brand, it is still a brand name, good mma is good mma regardless what alphabet soup organization is promoting it. What’s most important is that the best female fighters of any weight division are allowed to fight one another, get paid decent money for fighting, and that the fans have a choice of watching female mma on TV if they want to.

    In a post-fight interview after this past weekend’s UFC fight card in Canada, Dana White was asked various questions and one of them happened to be about a female division in the UFC and he once again dismissed the idea of a women’s division, saying “their aren’t enough elite female fighters out there.”

    He said worse things about female mma than that.

    I agree with that 100%. Dana White for whatever reasons he has is not going to allow female fights in the UFC. You can guess what they are. It just is not going to happen on his watch. 😈
