    Imagine the worst parts of superheavyweight plus the worst parts of WMMA

    Better question.

    Why are there women divisions in the UFC to begin with?

    Because fat women will have no KO power, be slow as shit, and the fights won't be entertaining at all.


    It's nothing like male heavyweight.

    Because there's not a whole lot of in shape women who weigh more than 145 lbs after cutting weight.

    Mostly fat women and the occasional roided up beasts like Gabi Garcia.

    Not a deep enough talent pool. As more female athletes take up MMA we'll see more divisions in feeder orgs that, if they are successful, will eventually lead to expansion in the big leagues.

    Oh wait, was this just an excuse for another cringey anti-WMMA circle jerk? Has it really been 20min already?

    cause any woman over the 145lb limit is going to be fat...there are only very rare examples of bigger women that are athletic and that look like athletes...most are fat slobs...and the ufc doesn't want fat slobs...especially for women...

    They can't even fill up the 145 lb division, there's like 3 fighters in there. You think it makes sense to have heavier divisions?

    They barely can find fighters in Cyborg's weight class let alone any heavier. It would be a hardship just compiling a division with decent fighters.

    Let's pray that it doesn't happen. Dana will have a 200 pound women's MMA bout headline 6 out of the 12 ppvs each year.

    If they were planning on a new division for women it would have to be 105. But really they should send them all to Invicta.
