New UFC Division of Female Fighters Isn’t Just a Fad
Ronda Rousey is doing for mixed martial arts what Mia Hamm (now Garciapara) did for women’s soccer–make it real. When Rousey became the first female fighter in the UFC, no one thought it was serious. “It’s just a fad” and “it won’t last” were the phrases used to describe Rousey’s groundbreaking move, but those words are being eaten as you read this and watch the video above. The UFC is out to make female MMA fighters a new part of the sport.
There are several new female fighters who are looking to join Rousey in the relatively new women’s bantamweight belt division of the UFC. They include fighters like Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano, who will square off in the finale of “The Ultimate Fighter” for a chance to take on Rousey for the title, which has belonged to no one but her since she was named the first female fighter in the UFC. Alexis Davis are Liz Carmouche are other names likely to be heard a lot along with Sheila Gaff and Sara McMann, who are set to fight on April 27.
Folks, MMA being known as a guys-only sport is a thing of the past. Female fighters isn’t just a fad, gimmick or any other disdainful way they’ve been described. So if you’re one of the millions who love girl fights, you’ll love this because it takes the phrase to a whole new level. So what do you think of female fighters becoming more prominent in MMA?
