    He needs to keep his mouth shut about not liking to see women hitting each other? Sorry, it's a common perception, and one I kind of share.

    Just out of curiosity, why are you not a keen on the idea of women's MMA?

    Then don't watch it. Change the channel. Leave those who want to do it alone.

    I don't mind watching women fight at all, although I was a little skeptical when it was new. They fight with chips on their shoulders and you seldom see boring women's bouts b/c they fight to win and not to 'not lose'. Jeff Osbourne put on an all women's card at HooknShoot and it was very, very entertaining. It's not like the WNBA--MMA translates well for women.
    I heart Jazzy B. White.

    I just get a little squeamish watching women hit each other. I was raised never to hit a woman, so it's a little weird. It's a conflicting emotion, because that women's fight on EliteXC was exciting, but also bothered me. It's hard to describe.

    Nobody is trying to stop you. All I (or Hughes, apparently) said was that he didn't enjoy watching it, and if he was asked to vote (which he isn't) he would vote against the UFC bringing it.

    It is two women choosing to fight, so there is no lack of respect. It's two combatants who, quite often, out-entertain the men on the card (at least the few I've seen.)

    I agree on almost all counts, but I never said it was completley rational. Just a weird feeling for me, very conflicting.
