I really hope you are saying this without knowing who Cyborg is.
If you think she is all looks and no skill, I wouldn't know what to say...LOL!

Kobold is attractive. Cyborg has that amazon badass thing going that makes her attractive around here. (Don't understand it myself, but its there.) It all comes down to marketability. Purcell's a total hottie.

Baszler. . . yeah you got me there.

Just a question, so you don't think Sexton vs Purcell fight on the ShoXC card is a legit representation of womens MMA?

When did I ever say that the fights themselves weren't quality women's MMA? One fight does not make a division or a sport.

Nothing against any of the fighters that EliteXC has picked up. But as long as they favor hotties and marketable fighters, its no more legitimate than if the UFC favored americans so much they avoided signing any foreign fighters.

I don't mind if the women are pretty that fight for EXC, but they should be good fighters and not become some kind of Anna K of EXC. As long as they put up good fights is all that matters. I rather see a Tara vs Cyborg than two pretty girls that can't fight good.

Since MMA is booming right now expect to see more women in the next 5 years.

You know, EliteXC did offer Tara LaRosa a contract:
Exclusive: EliteXC offers contract to women’s champion Tara LaRosa :Five Ounces of Pain

And about Kobold, I guess that is your opinion.

Well, consider me disproven about the division, though I still think they favor hotties as much as they can.

And whats your problem with cute curvy redheads?

Sure Tara is good and my guess the best too in her weight class, but she doesn't make a league so if all the top women fighters are in EXC then Tara won't have anyone left to fight AFL. Then again Tara has just about fought everyone, but Cyborg and Carano.
