    I think that it will take time for people to get used to women's MMA. I remember when I first started wrestling, people were really against the idea of us wrestling and we even had our world team trials separate from the men since I guess the idea of mixing the events wasn't too popular.

    Now that women's wrestling is an Olympic sport, it is starting to become more widely accepted.

    Hopefully some other mainstream MMA orgs aside from EliteXC will embrace the idea of women's MMA since I do believe that the fights are very exciting. Once people see it more, they might get used to it and be more supportive.

    It would also help to have more women participating in MMA classes at a recreational level. That way the guys get used to seeing that women enjoy training in the sport on a daily basis and are not just exposed to it once in a while by seeing it on tv at the highest level.

    I know that a few of the guys were skeptical when I first walked into the MMA class at the gym I was training in when I lived in NYC, but when they see you are serious and can hang in there with the guys (if not teach them a lot about wrestling) they are much more accepting of it. So far I have been pretty lucky in terms of the guys being accepting and willing to train with me. The guys here in IL have been pretty cool about it thus far as well.

    Boys, please remember that our bodies are designed to push a child out of our vaginas. We can take punches. Please remember the gruesomeness of the miracle of life when you take issue - rationally or irrationally - with women's mma.

    The stuff Dana swept under the rug for him, I assume, were some vague allegations that swept Sherdog about raping somebody, though those seemed to have even less basis then the Miletich thing.

    It actually made it to sherdog? I got that info from a source a while back.

    Supposedly he banged Rothwell's wife also.
