Why WMMA is great Judo,Boxing,Kick Boxing, Wrestling champs

UFC 1 was supposed to be all the best. But the athletes were horrible from most sports and not anywhere close to world level.

But now in WMMA we can get real world class combat athletes matched up against each other.

Boxing - Holly Holm Champ
Kickboxing - Miriam Nakamoto Champ
Judo - Ronda Rousey - Bronze Medalist
Wrestling - Sara McMann - Silver medalist

All in mma, All at the same weight class. It will be a joy to watch.

I know what you're saying though but I think the whole thing gets diminished by that the women don't manage to measure up in any way, even technically, to the best men in MMA. Plus that they of course don't train like the guys did in UFC 1, they are all training for MMA so it's also a lot about who adapts the best to the sport.
