    No babies for her. I dont understand the point of this article, all I read was two people went to war and it was a close fight, cool.

    What I do indeed find interesting is a muslim Malaysian female competing in mma. I'm sure she is dealing with a lot of pressure from very conservative clerics that don't approve of her even practicing mma in the first place.
    Best of luck to her in the fight and breaking down walls for her fellow muslim sisters.
    I don't know how terrorism became the topic, but you are absolutely right.

    Terrorism is the act of using fear, intimidation, and/or violence to influence or change another's political, social, environmental, religious, or economical beliefs. By that definition any act of war or open conflict between two or more nations is an act of terrorism. On a side note Islam is a religion of love and peace. To judge an entire people by the acts and beliefs of a few is beyond ignorant. I am a white man from the South, I have the Virginia fighting flag tattooed on my body with the words Death Before Dishonor. How many here would or just did judge me for that? It is great to think we don't stereotype or have prejudice in us. Sadly most don't remember prejudice means to pre-judge another.

    In response to the article... it's funny... because the Muslim portion didn't even enter my mind.
    I assumed the stereotype was that women's MMA wasn't as "good" as men's.
    And that the article, with it's description of brutal knees and ground and pound, and these women's ability to persevere and fight on, was illustrating that that belief was false... and that women were every bit as tough and professional as men.

    But maybe I missed the point?
    Either way... cool article.
    You are mostly right. The muslim part has more to do with the breaking of cultural norms in her country. Lets leave politics in the politics thread.

    He said he was joking. And of course, you're right about that.
