    That card isn’t full yet is it? Dare I say 6 wmma fights are possible? There’s going to be open revolt in here about 5. Just imagine if there are 6?

    three of those fights are really fucking good though

    Saurez v Ansaroff is a doozy
    JoJo 2.0 gonna maul Chook
    and Karolina v Karen is gonna be a hot weigh in..

    but whats really gonna happen...

    Eye gonna miss weight, JoJo gonna weigh in at championship weight, 125lb on the nose, and shes gonna step in and KO Valentina with a spinning elbow shit..

    UFC 238.. JoJo 2.0 Flyweight champion of the world..

    Looks won’t I won’t be driving to Chicago this June. Nothing against WMMA, but not exactly the best card ever

    I had no idea what groundbreaking means but I know that 5 WMMA bouts in a card is desperation moments for UFC

    The crazy thing is that ESPN are the ones begging for more WMMA - even Dana wants less on the main cards until it's had time to develop...

    I don't hate WMMA, but I think most main cards should be 4male/1female bouts. A high level WMMA fight is usually entertaining, but PPV main cards should only have championship fights or #1 contender WMMA fights IMO. Go to town with WMMA on the prelims for all I care haha

    Some men are boring and some women are boring MMA fighters. But most of these boring women fighters are highly ranked, not athletic and barely have any highlights. Tyron Woodley is a boring fighter but has delivered some nice highlights, so you tune in to see if he does something exciting and because he was the champ. But nobody is tuning into a WMMA fight with a 99% chance of being boring.

    It's just about the difference in ability... Some of the fights are good fun, but rarely spectacular - and it's a question of time - the more time passes, the better they will get, but some of these chicks are crossfit chicks that got into MMA to lose weight...

    There's levels to this shit, and I'm all in favour of the best fighters being put in.yhe best positions, but nobody is asking for a fresh WMMA push - it's in a good developmental place on the perimeter, and sacrificing frankly better fights in the men's division for a corporate agenda is number bullshit.

    No main event should ever have -1000 odds and be considered a good fight.
