Do you think WMMA should be kept mostly separate?

    Serious question, not a hate thread

    WMME seems to be super polarizing fans either love it to death or hate it

    Would anybody really hate it if at some point the UFC acquired Invicta-FC fully and just ran it like a WEC, only having the female mega stars on UFC cards while the rest got TV exposure ala WEC on versus back on the day?

    Anybody?
    Bueller?

    then it will just die out, women's sports need to be subsidized by men's sport to keep it running.

    I just can't stand female fighting on the PPV. If it's free TV fine. Just leave the PPV alone please UFC.

    Only when it's "that time of the month".

    Old school bless.

    WMMA has some pretty sick fights as long as the gals have their Thundercat powers engaged. WMMA + Jackson-WInk gameplan is generally snoresville.

    People watch Invicta and they have a decent following
    There are some that prefer WMMA to mens MMA
    Just put it on FS1 and give it similiar exposure imho

    no that sexist, women are equal to men ,so we shouldmix the female classes with the males.


    On a serious note, 90% of wmma fights I've seen look like they have absolute horrible skill levels and the fights blow most of the time

    If it can't live on it's own then it probably doesn't need to be around. I'd love it if they took it off all the PPV. I can live with it on FS1 and fightpass cards, but I shouldn't have to pay for 30 minutes of dog walking time.

    Oh look, it's this question again... nobody wants to pay for premium fights only to be forced to watch the UFC's equivalent of the WNBA.

    Keep the oversaturation of WMMA out of the UFC!

    I've seen some very good ones,
    I honestly just think Sean Shelby and his team don't give a lot of thought to WMMA and we get bad matchups a lot of times because of it. That said we've gotten some really good ones too - but we have a diluted talent pool despite Invicta not being in active competition with the UFC. It's weakening the product

    I've only been entertained by a handful WMMA fights. When I record free cards I always fast forward the women's fights and it almost always goes to a decision and if I do decide to watch one for whatever reason it's almost always boring with no sense of a finish.

    No I don't. But they shouldn't force below average female fights onto the major cards just because.

    Headlining an event? Would anyone go one inch out of their way to see her fight if she wasn't a little hottie? Let chicks fight if they want but don't occupy ppvs either. The real crime is that there are probably 400 or so men who are making less money in the Ufc after slugging it out for years,
