    Once Paige is done fighting, I won't be.


    I already lost Gina, then Miesha, all that's left now is Paige.

    No not really, it's an inferior sport, like all female sports.

    Needs to stay in a separate promotion and out of the big leagues

    I voted yes, but the option i want isn't really there. a good fight is a good fight, but most wmma fights aren't good. but that doesn't speak for all of them, some of them are really great fights among my favorites.

    Not really, no.

    EDIT: I chose the "I don't care" option

    I am.

    Joanna, Holly Holm, Mackenzie Dern are some of my favorite fighters.

    I'm a fan of the few good fighters. Girls like Rose, Nunes, Jessica Andrade, JJ are a joy to watch.

    But WMMA as a whole it's very shallow. Fights between low tier girls are often terrible. They try to bring it but the skill is just too low.

    I don't mind seeing the top few women fight in the UFC, but the rest o WMMA is getting tiresome. Outside of the top six or seven fighters across all female divisions, there aren't any fighters who are main card material.

    I'd still watch some WMMA if more of the fights were held under the aegis of Invicta or elsewhere with title fights or contender eliminators being shown on UFC cards.

    I liked it in Strikeforce when only the top women were showcased. UFC rushed it to where a lot of not very talented women are being showcased. It’s just not ready.

    The idea of WMMA doesn’t bother me and I was an original white knight when people were hating on Showtime doing it but it hasn’t been good

    I greatly respect female athletes, but WMMA doesn't interest me. Generally for the same reason I don't watch the WNBA.

    I have a finite amount of free time to follow sports for entertainment and I generally want to spend it watching the best.

    Clearly there is an audience for it and I'm glad these female fighters have a platform, but it pushes me away from the sport when I'm forced to subsidize it with my PPV dollars. I'd gladly give up an entire PPV every third month so they could stack a WMMA card for those fans. Everybody wins.

    I can't come up with a reason we need to see it interspersed. Imagine an NBA game featured a quarter of WNBA at half time. It would never work.

    I think the best option would be to merge UFC and Invicta. Then keep most of the fights in Invicta shows and the truly special and high level fights could go to UFC main cards.

    I'm in support of good fights, don't care if its male, female, heavy or flyweight.
