Men can put on some pretty shitty fights, so I don't understand how having women share the card can affect your potential enjoyment of an upcoming PPV. Undeniably its a sexist mentality, a judgment made based purely on gender.

No one ever says "I would get this PPV but there's too many Japanese fighters".

Nah I like things the way they are headed. Women's MMA is pretty cool so far.

2 separate organizations.

Once the UFC acquires a much larger female roster, more weight classes are established, and women's MMA becomes a little more popular, should the UFC create a separate organization for female fighters?

The reason why I ask is because personally, I would rather watch men fight than women. I fully support Women's MMA but when I buy a PPV I feel like I should get to fully enjoy what I am watching. I'd rather pay for a card that is composed entirely of male fighters rather than pay the same amount for a card that has a few female fights mixed in.

Right now it's not that big of a deal because the % of female fights in the UFC is very minimal. Once WMMA starts to grow though I can see it being more of a problem. I do not want to pay for a card that is 50/50 of male/female fights. I would feel kind of ripped off since that same amount of money had provided me a complete male card in the past. I'm not arguing that WMMA isn't exciting, i'm just saying that I shouldn't have to pay for a card that I personally can only half enjoy.

Once WMMA's popularity builds, if they do not create a separate organization, they should at least create separate cards for men's and women's MMA.

How does everybody feel about this topic?
Everyone has thier own tastes and liking's and I respect that but your comparison is very .....I cannot think of a word that is not profane.

Basketball is a team sport.
Baseball is a team sport.
Football is a team sport.

Singles Tennis is an individual sport. Women compete against other women in the same tours as the men. Although women do have thier own tours, they can compete in the men's tours.

Boxing is an individual sport. Female boxers fight on the same cards as the men.
