Nowadays, there is no shortage of fights. Last year, the UfC held hundreds of fights and if you add non UFC fights, it would total in the thousands. Even title fights aren’t so rare anymore, UFC title fights can be seen almost once a month. But there’s a type of fight that does not come so often, fans call for it, promoters try to make it, but rarely are they successful. These fights are super fights, and recently I had the honor to witness one, LIVE. The fight was UFC 156 Aldo (near undefeated featherweight champion & p4p great) vs Edgar (former lightweight champion who some would say still is, referred to as the number p4p fighter in the world by Dana White). Along with the super fight, they had a super card that I’m happy to break down for you.

You know the saying goes “never say never.” For years UFC President Dana White stated that female MMA fighters would never fight in his organization, but now he’s eating those words. In a recent Sports Illustrated article White announced that a women’s division being added to the UFC roster “is absolutely going to happen.”

As a fitness expert, mixed martial artist and boxer, I teach group fitness, kickboxing and strength conditioning to men and women. However, through my Fighting Spirit Warriors program, I teach girls and woman, ages 10-70, why being physically fit is vital to help reduce their chances of becoming a victim of rape, sexual assault or domestic violence.

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.

Google Womens MMA, go ahead, I have time… Did you notice something? The first three hits are the 12 Hottest Women in MMA, the 20 Hottest Women in MMA, and the 50 Hottest Women in MMA. 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?

Little did Ronda Rousey, who was born February 1, 1987 in Riverside County, California, ever imagine that one day she would be a mixed martial artist, let alone world champion. Fast forward 25 years and Rousey is just that – Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion.

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.

“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.
