    That was very difficult to watch a woman get beat like that. I have always been a fervent proponent of WMMA but that really was tough......

    She didn't make weight, everyone who doesn't should get a beating...

    Surely if you have ever seen Yves Edwards fighting, you'd have given up on male MMA years ago.

    Did Bader v Perosh change your mind on MMA?

    and people wonder why i hate it. it's usually some man beast vs some chick that thinks she's tough, and it just doesn't seem fair.

    I dont know what her gender has to do with anything. A guy can get his ass handed to him in a fight, too. Look at Junior in the last two of his Cain fights.

    I don't have a problem with it in principle but in order to have a full division they have to bring in girls that look like they took two kickboxing classes at their local gym and then stepped into the octagon. That was horrible.

    Of course not.....My point is in theory I am all for woman competing in contact sports. The ending of the third round, Alexis taking those punches, just made me react in a primordial way where I just hated watching a woman get destructed. I had a very visceral reaction to a woman getting beat.

    With that size advantage, she should be able to weather more punishment

    there is a difference from watching a male get their face smashed in, to watching a chick get a beating, for most males anyway.

    If you mean because the pathetic lack of skill for a professional athlete then I agree. If you mean because you had to see a women get beat up then you're an idiot.

    That's the thing....It was tough watching Junior get beat down....It was disturbing watching Alexis take that. Not from a philosophical way but just an emotional and animalistic way.

    Team Quest is to blame for this. They tried to hype her into the UFC 135 when she cant even make the weight. They were desperate to make a buck or something. Team Quest is another once top camp, not evolving well with modern mma.

    It was gruesome to watch. Utterly outclassed and she was basically a human punching bag.
