    Just a little reminder that it isn’t just Khabib.

    Fedor:

    “I respect the girls who defend the country's honor at the Olympics, in wrestling, boxing. But I do not support female MMA. A woman must take care of the house, raise her children and be feminine. There a lot of different sports which help her in that, but MMA is not one of them."

    “Women shouldn’t compete in UFC/MMA because this sport is for men,” Emelianenko said through his interpreter. “There are a lot of sports where women look like women – like gymnastics, water sports, maybe some athletics.

    “He’s telling that women shouldn’t fight. MMA is for men. It’s a man sport.”

    GSP:

    "For the woman fight, I say it's good for her, and I mean for the girls that fight, but me personally I have a hard time watching the girls fight... In my heart I have, you know, it's the way I grew up maybe, the mentality is different, I'm old school... I have a hard time watching girls fighting; it's hard for me. I never really watched a woman fight, but I know they are pretty good... It's good for the women who want to make a career ... But for me, it's hard to watch the girls fighting."

    Who cares what male fighters think?

    I watch it because I like it. I really don’t care about anybody’s opinion of it. I watch it because I enjoy it.

    This is about me and what I like. As it is with everyone else.

    Not surprising coming from a religious Russian guy.

    "A woman must take care of the house, raise her children and be feminine."

    It's 2018, bro

    Insecure males obsessed with male muscles still making threads about this? I bet Cyborg would destroy every single nerd on this forum.

    Is this an appeal to authority intended to justify Khabib's opinions or it intended to point out that sexism is a widepsread issue in MMA as a whole?

    Whether it’s GSP, Fedor, or a random Sherbro like me:

    They’re entitled to theirs, and I’m entitled to mine. WMMA needs time to develop, both in terms of growing a deeper talent pool, and in terms of gaining acceptance while overcoming the double standard that many female athletes face in other sports. I enjoy watching it, and my enjoyment is not affected by anyone else’s opinion.

    I’ll give you my opinion. I train with s bunch of girls who are very talented and I love being a part of their camp and helping them improve. They put in just as much work as the guys do and give the same sacrifice that any male fighter does to become great. I respect them for it and have nothing against them being fighters.

    Having said that, when I watch the ufc, I watch to see the best fighters on the planet. I think they should’ve promoted invicta as they have but put all of the best wmma fighters in that promotion just like the ufc has with the guys. Bringing girls into the ufc was a money grab decision backed off of Ronda’s popularity at the time. Now we’ve seen women making their ufc debut on a ppv and they have less then 5 fights. I know guys with great records and have skills that far surpass some of these girls getting called up, and the guys never got that call.

    TLDR-I have no problem with girls fighting
    -Do I think they should be fighting in the ufc? No.

    Women have the same urge to fight as men and should be allowed. The Joanna's and Shevchenkos and Rondas and Nunes of the world deserve to be on UFC.

    Tbh I think every weightclass under HW is some kind of special olympics anyway. Best fighter is ofc always HW champion, other weight classes are just for luls and to make more money.
    Add all kinds of cheating like weight cutting (sanctioned cheating) and it's full circus.

    She also has more artificial testosterone than most men

    The problem is that sherdog has high standards for WMMA but i barely see you guys complaining about this fucking ridiculously depleted roster that UFC has, with like 600 fighters where 200 of them suck.

    You can find terrible fighters at any weight class, from W115 to 265, but the only ones constantly being targets of fighter bashing are females. I mean, should Amanda Cooper and Ashley Yoder be in UFC?
    No, definitely not. But neither should Darrel Horcher, Mizuto Hirota, Salim Touahri, Rolando Dy, Josh Burkman and a bunch of cans with terrible records.

    In my opinion it should be only the elite in UFC, bring back the Zuffa era where every scrub would be cut and we would be left wondering if it was fair, if really was necessary etc. That said, the problem behind watered down UFC cards isn't WMMA, usually out of 11-13 fights there are 1-3 WMMA fights, the problem is that now mediocrity in UFC is accepted.

    There's around 5000 pro mma fighters around world and I guess 700 of them is in the UFC. it's obvious many of them won't be good. Hey but its UFC.
