    I guess it's subjective. But the pay per view take and the purse qualifies it as popular enough to spark my OP. This isn't two drunk chicks fighting over their man outside some dive. ;)

    I hear you, but Ronda Rousey is popular. Take her away and the draw is gone. She's been touted by Joe Rogan as a once-ever figher and the most dominant person in any sport, ever. All this after winning 12 professional fights. She is a media creation, and billing her as the Mike Tyson of women's MMA is what has driven women's MMA popularity.

    These chicks look terrible in fighting form, but most of them clean up pretty well. Just saying Ronda Rousey in an evening dress at the weigh-in is fine. Its just a bonus that she can kick the **** out of you if she dosen't get her's.

    I like excellence in any sport, but especially the combat sports. I also think strong women add to the strength of a society and we need a strong society. The effect of more strong women will have the opposite effect on men than you think it will. You don't see many, if any, of these women hooking up with weak men. They demand a strong man.

    One of my best friends is a tough as nails female detective on a local PD. She is feminine right up until she's not. Then watch out! Her husband is a former Recon Marine and currant LE. Nothing effeminate about this guy at all.

    I'm not worried about what it will do to 'men'. I'm worried about what it already says about 'ladies and gentlemen'. They are both going extinct.
    Do you pay money to watch her fight?

Then, my wife showed up!!!

    I don't think fighting excludes a woman from being a lady. I grew up in the world of martial arts and have known many women fighters that were perfectly fine young ladies. Outside of the Dojo you would not have been able to tell they were fighters at all. Just typical girls in all other aspects. As a young man I actually "knew" a few that were damned hot.

    Hell no, I don't pay to see her fight. I get that for free. LOL!

    Hell yeah! (And I'm a girl.)

    And Geaux, this is yet another reason I just love you.

    I share some of your feelings, and have said almost the exact same things as AA above. We are not "equal"; we complement each other. We are meant to be partners, a team, and a community. Female skills, intuition, nurturing are needed in a family and in a community. Likewise, male protectors, hunters, providers are also needed. Yes, there are crossovers; those that are better at what is typically the other gender role. And when that happens, more power to you for finding your strengths and contributing in the way you're best suited.

    I hate that today's society by and large has to mess this balance up by proving we're all equal. That's the first mistake we make as a society. We should be reveling in our differences and building up people who bring different skills in, rather than pushing an agenda that we are all the same.

    Is it my inability to state the clear difference between a spectator blood sport with women participants and women being trained in self defense, or are you not wanting to discuss the distinction?
