    It seems like there are a lot of accusations of men beating women especially in MMA. If they were to black ball them would that help make UFC more mainstream? In my opinion it may help take away the thug opinion so many people have of the sport

    Every case is far from the same

    Many of the women who make these accusations or get into these altercations have a long list of questionable things in their past. Not that every one is lying but many of them aren't very mentally stable

    Nope. It's not like they can just magic another mildly attractive woman to replace Arriany. If they found one out of luck they'd have to teach her to hold a sign, which is far too much hassle.

    I don't see how banning Ronda Rousey would help anyone...

    Yeah, we definitely don't want anyone thinking the best fighters in the world are violent.

    10/10 TS is on to something here.

    Jon Jones would be on that list of banned fighters TS. He beat up a woman with his car.

    Women beaters are perfectly fine, in fact, the more I watch W''MMA'' the more I beat my wife.

    How butthurt do you have to be to bring Jones up in threads that have nothing to do with him making a joke that isn't remotely funny

    I think the code of ethics should be tougher no matter what you do you should be able to control yourself

    The only people it would make a difference to are the folks who aren't going to watch anyway.

    Probably not. But locking them in a cage with a female would sure as hell catapult UFC into NFL status, IMO!
    Johnson x Rousey ASAP! Do it Dana!

    Kind of funny how you can never actually escape paternalism.

    It would go a long ways in attracting bigger/better sponsors. Probably wouldn't change much as far as viewership goes, at least short term.

    No. They're only using it as a marketing ploy. Basically telling the UFC "I want a freak show fight with some of WMMA's best"
