Are there actually men here that prefer WMMA not be relegated to seperate cards?

    There are a lot of fights in men's MMA that shouldn't even be on the main card. I just want quality.

    This thread needs a poll.

    It's a funny discussion though, ever asked a NBA fan if they follow WNBA, or asked a soccer fan if they give a fuck about womens soccer? But when you say you hate WMMA you're made out to be some kind of masochistic ahole.

    I didn't mean the concept, I meant the choice of wording (if they have the right to exist). No offence meant.

    ...or those that watch MMA to see the best fighting the best not a bunch of slow unathletic soccer moms wasting our time and taking up space that could be filled with better fighters.

    But no, must just be sexism and insecurity. *sigh* delusional fedora tipping white knights :rolleyes:

    No, they are not.

    Would you go to the Superbowl and then at half time have the female football league come out to play their finals match to end the day?

    Would you go to the NBA playoffs and at halftime have the team switch out for the WNBA so that they can play their playoff game too?

    WMMA is an inferior product as women are vastly inferior to men. I couldn't fucking believe when UFC.com had Ronda fucking Rousey higher on their P4P list than makle fighters AT THE SAME WEIGHT. We don't need to play batman vs superman there. If she is better than make fighters at the same weight, lets see male vs female fights.

    Of cause that won't happen, because WNBA is inferior and can't compete. It is B grade shit. It is okay if you like B grade shit, but it doesn't belong on premium content.

    Yep, it's known that "a reasonably good boys high school team could beat the (Wnba champions)". Let that sink in. The champions of the women's "professional" league would lose to a boys high school team. It wouldn't take a minor league team, not even a college level team to beat the best women's team in the country, a moderately good boy's high school team can do it.

    That's the biggest reason that women's basketball isn't a viable business. The only women sports that draw an audience, are not watched because the talent is on-par with men's, but because of sex appeal (i.e. Women's volleyball, diving, gymnastics, tennis, track & field).

    Women's combat sports will never be as accepted nor as watched as men's.

    The Australian women's Olympic football team lost 7-0 to a local under 15s boys team. Let that sink in for a bit.

    sex appeal is pretty much why like more then half of wmma fighters are insta models/post teasing shit on their social media all the time. its the only way to generate interest. they wouldnt have as large a fanbase if they didn't do that kind of shit lol. thats why i laugh at the womens empowerment stuff sometimes - you see women talk about that and then their posting revealing pictures of themselves to get some buzz

    Problem is what happens when they retire? The only reason those guys became stars/draws is because they were allowed to fight on cards where everyone could see them.

    if you relegate women to their own cards/promotion, you're not going to have any Cyborgs, Nunes, JJ's, etc in the future because no one is going to know who they are when you bring them up to the main card

    To be fair, MMA pay is trash in general and even worse for women. If they want to generate interest/money using their bodies I don't have a problem with it. No different than guys like DJ and others streaming on Twitch to supplement their income

    And they were ranked 5th in the world at that time.

    The US World Cup winning women's team lost 5-2 to an under 15 boys teams (and that's not even high school aged, that's fucking Middle Schoolers!)

    The "best" women's soccer team in the world lost to a bunch of 14 year olds.
