    My girl only cares about the female fights and I suspect there a lot of other females that feel the same way. These are people the UFC could easily target to make them fans of the men also. I think the UFC should get some of their male fighters to hold some self defense or rape prevention seminars that women could go to. They could have it has a community service type of thing that would also serve to promote a positive image for the UFC in light of all the recent domestic violence incidents in pro sports. In the process women are meeting male fighters and gaining an interest in their careers also. Seems like a win win for everyone.

    Jones would be a phenomenal teacher with the eye gouging and groin pokes.

    War Machine would be like "Okay, step one: Don't be in a room with me. Y'all already fucked up."

    UFC isn't about that, they are about entertainment. So male fighters will do strip shows for women as like a UFC world tour. They'll host fight parties for girls. The best part is the fighters will actually make more money in tips than they would from fighting.

    I think it's a good idea. My ex-girlfriend hated MMA until I pointed out how tight GSP's trunks were, but if she had seen women fighting she probably would have been able to identify with the sport a lot better and a lot sooner.

    I thought Forrest Griffin DID host stuff like that as well as LGBT defense classes?

    My wife started to watch Anderson v Maia and asked if this is all they do...dance around and that they should fight. Then she found out how much they make and laughed and thought it was all stupid.

    I don't like her around come fight night....needless to say
