Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Elite XC Signing More Female Fighters

(Lost in thought, Debi Purcell? Cause I’m lost in your eyes. Please don’t hit me.)

So female MMA fighter Debi Purcell and I are MySpace friends. It’s pretty cool. I’m not sure she knows that she’s friends with me, but she is. Good thing too, because today she sent out a bulletin announcing that she’s just signed a three-fight deal with Elite XC and will begin by taking on Brazilian Carina Damm on June 27.

This is encouraging for those of us who thought Elite XC was only interested in promoting Gina Carano and therefore would only bring in female fighters who Carano could beat. Both Damm and Purcell are legitimate competition, and while they may not be quite as hot as Carano, they’re not bad either. Something about a woman in a sports bra and MMA gloves.

Is that wrong? You know, talking about their attractiveness in the same way we talk about their fighting ability, which we would never do when talking about a male fighter? It’s only wrong if you say negative things about their looks, right? Women don’t get pissed off when you tell them how pretty they are, do they?

I don’t even know anymore. I’m just going to shut up and let you check out this Debi Purcell highlight video. In case you’re wondering what the tattoo on her lower back says, it’s “Hooray for me, fuck you.” That’s our kind of woman.

I got a thing with women fighters. The Hardcore fighters, not tipical girly fighters. They really turn me on.

Look, Its true that girls don't have the upper body strength that we do. But in light of that I think the girls just focus more on grappling and leg strikes, I'm sure there are girls with strong enough legs to kick like crocop and make for a better show

crocop ftw btw

Hooray for the Foofighters!
Come on, guys!
Women warriors are beautiful!!!
But, yeah - I'd rather watch GSP, Huerta, Franklin and Brown roll any day.

Watching that video just reminded me of why the WNBA averages 15 people a game. Wake me up when they're topless.

if I want to see a woman getting punched in the face all I have to do is stay in my own living room

This is a highlight video????? Can't imagine sitting through a whole fight.

I don't know guys, I'd let her catch me in a triangle choke!

chicks naturally have less coordination and strength than men. so no, it's not gay to find this yawn-worthy. i think the main attraction to this sport is watching the blood pour and knowing they're kicking the absolute living shit out of each other.

If you want to see good female fighters, go to Youtube and type in chick fights. Now there's some good fights.

I mean it's good that they have the chance to fight and compete in MMA events, and sure some are pretty talented. but I've just never gave a shit about women fighting or watching them in any sport to be honest. I try to force myself to like it but I can't. Now I might watch if the women fight naked with some double D's flopping around and the two make out afterwards.

The only thing 2 chicks should ever fight about is who is gonna be givin me head first.

I think it's a bad idea for the first organization going on network tv to have the broads fighting. Girl fights are lame. Nobody wants to watch 2 chicks slap each other when there is zero chance of a boob popping out. I hope the girl fight on May 31 is during Weekend Update on SNL. That Amy Poehler is funny.

I also want to agree with cwr, but the thing is just that there are seldom good fights between women. It's usually a good fighter (Carano) against a poor fighter or it's just two poor fighters. Watching unskilled fighters just isn't that interesting and watching most female fights, they don't hit solidly, they defend themselves blindly like a couple of 6th grade boys.

Like Joe, I WANT to enjoy female fighting and if you can line up two truly capable female fighters, I will admit it was a great fight (if it proves to be a great fight). I just have yet to see that.

See, I want to agree with you, cwr. Intellectually I do. But if you told me an event would be all awesome fights between women, I'd be less likely to watch. I can't explain why.
cwr- May 6, 2008 at 10:52 pm
I really have to disagree with the both of you... a good fight is a good fight.
Joe Son- May 6, 2008 at 10:32 pm
No, I'm with you. I don't know what it is. I don't have a problem seeing women getting punched in the face or anything. It's just not interesting to me. It's one of those things that I'm glad some people support, but I don't want to be one of them. Like charities and shit.

Am i weird for having absolutely no interest in watching women competing in the cage?
