    1. There's no star in the division.

    2. The champion got crowned via reality show.

    3. Can you imagine a women's strawweight championship bout being the main event with a fight like Gustaffson-Rumble in the undercard? (Since Dana said that championship bouts are always main events).

    4. The women are really talented and have legit skills but men's lightest weightclasses can't draw crap as it is, even with overwhelmingly talented stars like Demetrious Johnson. Thus, can they draw fully based on just sex appeal? They'll draw me for sure (Paige Vanzant definitely will) but will it be broad enough to justify a card?

    It'll happen, but the card won't sell shit.

    It'll basically be a social statement just like sending women to Ranger school. Makes zero sense but gives a handful of people a warm and fuzzy.

    Strawweight will co-headline for a while, until they have the charismatic champion at least.

    Like you said, championship fights are more important, that doesnt mean they would be the main event, it will be featured with a men championship fight as co-main event until they draw enough atention, end even then, if they do not reach Ronda
