    Since you guys are so worried about being respectful to the female MMA fighters, for full equality, why not have "Ring Boys" when the girls are fighting? They can walk around in their little G-string speedos (would keep SimpleJack happy as well )

    I like female MMA, just not sure why we need ring girls (or cheerleaders at football games).

I'm sure that if Matt Brown wanted to he could find a website with topless, or naked, women's MMA, but I think he could have shown his fellow UFC employees a bit more respect. But he's absolutely entitled to his opinion, speaking his mind, making attempts at crude humor and all, some people will be rubbed the wrong way and some won't.

    No, I think they are pretty similar to cheerleaders. I have always thought cheerleaders a little odd as well. I have never understood why parents in the US encourage their daughters to be cheerleaders. Don't think we really have the same cheerleader "culture" in Canada.

If they weren't, we wouldnt start little girls cheerleading as soon as they are able to walk. No, little kids being cheerleaders isnt the same as surgically enhanced ring girls, but its just two extremes along the same line.

Sodom and gomorrah, meet idiocracy. Two extremes along the same line.

    Oh Matt Brown is evil for saying that he doesn't enjoy female MMA and would need to basically sexualize it to more to make him watch it ... when the UFC is already trying to use sex to add to the attraction of the event with Ring girls and attractive MMA fighters. If Ronda Rousey looked like Sarah Cauffman, we would still not have females in the UFC.
    I'm personally not thinking Brown is evil or anything, but while I'm not a fan of WMMA in it's current state I do see his comments as being somewhat disrespectful to the efforts woman are making in the ring. Just because Dana's a hypoctite that doesn't excuse Brown for the things he says


    ... "instead of being supporting" I guess I should hug a striper after their lap dance.
    You don;t think a stripper needs a hug once in a while ?
