Females in MMA will never be on par, or even remotely close, to their male counterparts.
as a sexist male i can honestly say i do not like watching women fight. something about a woman get punched in the face doesn't sit well with me.

Sorry but thats a fact, I suggest getting used to her.
Not sure what that has to do with Hallman discussing Ronda & TUF

But, GREAT POST BRO

I second this.
If a 'pretty' blonde bird wasn't the champ, Dana wouldn't have shown any interest in bringing women to the UFC. If RR loses to Tate, things will start going downhill and Dana will lose interest - he'll then say that WMMA will be back, when 'its ready' to be in the UFC.

Rousey will retire within 3yrs, IMO. Not sure why - take your pick of a) gets her face busted open and loses, and realises that if she wants movie roles, she needs to lay off the facial beatings; b) she gets a lot of movie roles and just vacates the belt; c) she gets pregnant or decides she wants to start a family.

Ronda is going to walk through Tate again.

She's crazy but in a Wandy early 2000's kind of way.

WMMA haters gonna be so disappointed 2 years from now, when the UFC add even more divisions at 125 and 115 lbs.

I hope you eat your words in terms of the future of WMMA.

As to the idea that it will never be on par or even close... WMMA will be different but women's fights are already on par with many male MMA fights in terms of entertainment value. That's the important part.
