womens-mmaThere was a time, recently in fact, when UFC President Dana White was adamant that women would never fight inside the octagon at UFC. Now White is one of the biggest supporters of women fighters and has given a giant push for them to be included on the biggest stage in mixed martial arts.  This push came in the form of scheduling a championship title fight at UFC 157 between current bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and Marine Corps veteran Liz Carmouche at the sold-out Honda Center in Anaheim, CA, on Saturday, February 23.

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

Is Ronda Rousey The Future Face Of Womens MMA?

“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey is starting to make a name for herself in the womens MMA scene.  She is already 3-0, winning all of her fights via armbar AND not one of her fights has made it past the first minute of the first round.  If that isn’t impressive then I don’t know what is.  Her next fight will be on November 18th at the Strikeforce Challengers event where she will take on Muay Thai fighter, Julia Budd, who has a record of 2-1.  This should be a good match up as it pits Rousey against one of the better strikers she has faced in her career.

When former professional Philadelphia boxer Jacqui Frazier (Joe’s daughter) used to train for upcoming fights she had to concern herself with three children, a husband and her law firm. Unlike males fighters, women who train for sporting events where they compete must still contend with all these other “womanly” duties. Like Frazier, who is now retired from boxing and has traded in her gloves for a judge’s robe in Philadelphia courts, most people don’t realize exactly what goes into the life of a female MMA fighter.
