The Industry of Women in Mixed Martial Arts

Posted on 20 June 2012 by jcaudill

Now it’s no big secret that UFC President Dana White has always been a bit skeptical to the idea of Women fighters in the UFC. He has said in the past that he wasn’t against it so much as he didn’t see the market for Women in Mixed Martial Arts. Don’t misunderstand, Mr. White is very respectful of the female athletes themselves and has been vocal about his support for fighters like Ronda Rousey, but he has stated that he doesn’t feel there are enough female athletes on a Rousey like level to make for an interesting division.Strikeforce champion, Sarah Kaufman

Can Women’s MMA Bounce Back After Steroids Controversy?

Posted on 23 February 2012 by Jillian Bullock

Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos has always been the type of MMA fighter who was like a speeding train that steamrolled over all opponents who stood before her. Since becoming a professional fighter, Santos has amassed a fight record of 10-1. These fights have been clear, decisive and left no doubt who was the superior athlete. MMA’s darling Gina Carano may have been the most popular among fans, mainly because of her attractive features, but it was Santos who proved that ability and skill was highly valued over good looks and a popularity contest.

Posted on 20 February 2012 by James Lowery

Mixed Martial Arts is just like other sports business; full of hype and all about making money. Some fighters in the UFC are all about the hype, the smack talk, and either can or can’t back it up. Nick Diaz just happens to be one of those fighters who is all about the talk, but cannot seem to walk the walk.  Many people tout Diaz as one of the best boxers in MMA and a top contender in the welterweight division, however he hasn’t defeated top level guys even though he has fought several.

Posted on 15 February 2012 by Todd

Over the past 5 years it seems that the use of steroids by the fighters in the UFC & MMA has exploded in the news.  Maybe this is because more fighters are actually using steroids or maybe it is the fact that MMA has grown so much in popularity that fans actually hear about it more often.  Whichever the case steroid use has become a problem.

MMA Fight Predictions: Jake Shields vs Yoshihiro Akiyama

Posted on 14 February 2012 by James Lowery

Jake Shields went 21 fights without losing before he challenged George St. Pierre for the UFC welterweight title. No he hasn’t won in his last two fights. But in that incredible streak, besides beating quality guys from a higher wieght class like Yushin Okami, Dan Henderson, and Robbie Lawlor, Jake was able to beat the current interim UFC welterweight champ Carlos Condit. With a win over Akiyama Jake could put himself closer to Fighting Condit again, this time with a lot more at stake. Shields is a ground expert with a base in wrestling and a lot of jui-jitsu experience. As testament to how dangerous he is on the mat, George St. Pierre basically avoided going to the ground with Jake throughout their entire fight.
