There 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.

Now, I’m not complaining that there are attractive Women in the realm of Mixed Martial Arts, but my question to you is, is that fair to 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.
