    If you don't include family members of the WMMA fighters. WNBA players always complain how they should receive more money like NBA, yet their ratings are abysmal even tho half of the US population are female. Why don't they watch WNBA and support it?
    Do many women watch UFC because there are female fights?

    Pretty sure most of the women in the UFC have girlfriends watching them.

    Many women don't have the same level of interest in sports in general as their male counterparts

    How many women do you know who watch a lot of sports? I live in an NFL crazy town, so it's a bit of an outlier, but even here, while a fair percentage of women watch football, very few are interested in other sports. Sports leagues and promoters are always trying to break into that market in a big way, and I doubt they'll stop trying.

    How is anyone here going to know?
    It's not like they have access to audience breakdowns.

    Women watching sports are being ridiculed ALL THE TIME, as in: Shouldn't you be doing women stuff such as cooking or sucking my dick?

    No idea, good topic for a bit of wmma bashing though. Interesting that the ladies seem to be doing quite well on the sponsorship front, not least with products aimed at women such as clothing lines. These companies must see some value there.

    Women tend to not be that into sports. So no.
    Women tend to be into the sport(s) her boyfriend/husband is into. So yes or probably or not.

    Most women watch because their boyfriends/husbands watch it and they happen to be near by...

    If my wife watches the UFC Embedded or Countdown specials with me prior to a big fight, she seems genuinely more interested in the fight story line and how it will all play out.

    All that being said, she doesn't give a fuck about MMA.

    I don't think I know a single woman who watches WMMA outside of them hanging out with their boyfriend while he watches it with us lol.

    My daughters (7&8) like to watch the girls fight.
    My 8 year old is taking TKD and she loved watching Karate Hottie vs Karolina

    To answer your question. 4 of them, and two of them are dating each other. My numbers might be a little high.
