I have yet to see a complaint about the 115'ers.
Depends on height. At 5'10+ that's a fairly normal weight. Of course most women are shorter than that. At say 5'5 which is pretty average for women, I'd say maybe 120-130 is the average weight. People don't realize that a lot of these girls are big, like Gina was I think 5'8 or so. Erin Toughill I think was 5'10? A lot of the female MMA fighters are above average in size for females. Same as the male fighters actually. The average dude on the street is maybe 5'10 160 lbs, but you see casual male fans always say that is a very small fighter. It's kind of funny though when you just hold people to their own size.
Anyway as to Dana, he really has no compunction saying anything and contradicting himself. He hated women's MMA when it was in Strikeforce and EliteXC, and would mock it constantly. Now it's in the UFC and he promotes it. He's a promoter, you can't really take what he says seriously.
I guess he wants to be controversial and bring attention to the UFC in any way possible, so he does manage it.
I wish he'd just renege on some of the other stuff he's said in the past. Would it be so hard to admit, now that it's far in the past, that Pride's HW was leagues ahead of UFC's back then? That Fedor is an all time great? I mean the UFC owns all the tape library now, Pride is long since dead, why not just promote that stuff too, the way he's promoting women's MMA after trashing it before? I would really like to see Fedor get some of his due in the UFC just once out of Dana's mouth. Maybe he's already said it and I missed it, in which case if anyone can link me I would be grateful. Thanks in advance.
