Take out Cristiane Cyborg, you'll only have some kind of bar brawl in there. When it comes to grappling fights they're more exciting tho.

I enjoyed the TUF season and believed I could hype myself up to watch the ladies on the main card but they just really let me down. I am also not too excited to watch Ronda Co-Main event and get an arm bar in 2 minutes.

Me being a boxer for only 8 months I believe I am vastly superior to them and I am not that great.
Their "striing" > your spelling

mizuki inoue has the best boxing technique in mma. she's a teenage strawweight, and no man or woman is better at boxing in mma.

another strawweight, joanne calderwood has some of the best muay thai style in mma. patient and accurate, there are plenty of men who wish they could strike as well as she does.

there are tons of excellent grapplers in both men's and women's mma. women are often involved in more exciting echanges because their felixiblity is better, in general, than the men and so you get to see more unusual positions and different attempts and escapes.

I hate WMMA, just because they are the best women in the world doesn't mean they are good enough to be in the UFC.. oh and the fact that you have to compensate and say "not to sound negative but blah blah blah" is ridiculous, they looked terrible and most of them are amateur level fighters

Others aren't much better.

Ufc needs a b league all together, the amount of divisions is growing and so is yhe roster.. would be nice to know after 3 losses you can fight on, lets say, strikeforce challengers type program and not in another company all together

best boxing in MMA? lmfao please stop. The Diaz brothers and guys like Dos Santos or Cormier are the people with best boxing. Inoue has nobody to fight other than randomers in Invicta and Jewels that aren't any good to begin with. Same with Calderwood.

Their striking looks so good because the standard for striking in WMMA is pitifully low.

oh and on the whole, 99% of WMMA is awful to watch and the 135'ers do not deserve any spots on a UFC main card. Dana had a knee-jerk reaction to Ronda's popularity and now he's stuck with a bunch of girls that barely know how to fight compared to the guys but still take up slots on a card.
