PLAYERS: Dana White
Follow @schmelzer77 on Twitter On Saturday, February 23rd, the UFC will debut their Women’s Division live on Pay Per View. If the picture above does not get you excited, I do not know what will. That is Ronda Rousey, and she will fight for the new Women’s Bantamweight Title against Liz Carmouche. This will be the first Women’s bout in the history of the UFC. In the past, UFC President Dana White had been against women in the octagon, but now he is all on board. “I think that Ronda has the potential to be a big star,” White said. “She’s already getting media that we’ve never even got before and she’s never even set foot in the UFC yet.” Along with the fight this Saturday, the UFC has two other Women’s Division fights scheduled. It appears that the Women of the UFC are here to stay. White has also talked about the possibility of having the women’s division on the hit reality show, The Ultimate Fighter, but nothing is set in stone. We will just have to wait and see what happens next. I

UFC on Fuel TV Judging

A big issue in MMA today is the judging.  UFC on Fuel TV 7 was not free of this problem.  There were a couple of questionable scores but none more evident than the split decision win for Matt Riddle.  Riddle clearly dominated the fight with superior wrestling and control and the judge who scored it for Mills should never be allowed to be involved in an MMA event again.  At least...
