    I just wanted to remind everyone, that this guy compared African americans not being able to sit in the font of the bus; to Women not being allowed to have sanctioned fights with full grown men in a cage and be KTFO............

    Imagine Rousey fighting Faber and getting KTFO like that dude in your sig. That would bring up a whole new MMA shit storm on all parties excluding Rousey.

    That's the perfect way to put it man. The intent is the main issue here. Sparring is just a way of testing your skills in a controlled environment, well protected, and unlikely to suffer any major injury.

    Competing is a completely different kettle of fish, the protection isn't there for the fighters and it's difficult to look at it as just objective competition when a dude is going out there looking to turn a girl's lights off.

    I don't have any issues sparring with women. I hold back and they usually go full throttle but as suggested there is a big difference between sparring and fighting someone in the cage where a man would likely find himself in a catch 22 scenario.

    If he loses he shouldn't have lost to a woman if he beats the shit out of her people will be quite disgusted. Either way you leave the cage feeling like shit and looking like a complete asshole.

    I agree with RD. Women should not fight men in a cage. I have no problem with women training with me, and yes some women can beat a man. I have no problem with rolling with women, or sparring but fighting in a cage where you are trying to separate someone from their consciousness is a different story.

    I don't know if I'd actually be comfortable with women and men competing against each other, but I completely understand what you're getting at.

    1. People who jump on the "it's a man beating a woman" thing clearly haven't played sports, especially combat sports. There is an element of violence in it, but it's not a one sided beating and there's a way to compete safely; men and women spare together all the time. And I say this as someone who would still be uncomfortable with the notion, which leads me to:

    2. It's a philosophical exercise about where one draws the line of equality and I totally get it. Rousey is actually a fantastic example: She would be a top contender in the men's 135 division. So, is it sexist to throw women into the mix with men, given biological realities (especially those of muscle density)? Or is it sexist to tell Rousey that there is no way she will ever compete with a man, ever be given a chance to prove she is absolutely the best at 135?

    They're not easy questions and I respect your willingness to talk about them in a polite way.

    In the end, my view is that we'll be ruled by the averages. With there being real differences in biology and real differences between the average female and male fighter, there's too much reason to keep WMMA and MMA. But I'm glad that, unlike many other sports, fighting allows for women to compete on the same cards and with the same viewership as men. That's a pretty big deal, really.

    However by all means when she calls the cops on you please feel free to express your views with law enforcement. Don't even bother using neosporin while you're whoopin her ass. Instead explain to the cops that men and women were created equal.

    I would laugh at you but honestly that shit ain't funny. I had a feeling you were fucked up in the head. Perhaps you should be on narcotics as well.

    If women fighters want to be considered with the men, you need to take the W away from WMMA. Otherwise, its just another kitchen..

    Manon Rhéaume, Michelle Wie, Danica Patrick...

    I guess all Im saying is, FIGHT OPPRESSION!
    Great comparison....
