interesting sideshow. but a sideshow none the less. i suppose the ufc has to try to generate white american stars from where ever they can find them. even if it means a different gender.
gotta toss that fanbase a bone.

Koonta is just mad because he on the welfare and can't afford it! White Girl Power!
Good to see you're trying to connect your ethnic fanbase theory even to fights that are between two Americans.
it was never about race solely. its about the barriers that separate us and limit the possibiliy that one might become a fan of a given fighter. nationality, culture and race are all key
The barriers, lol!!!!! The only barriers r within your own culture and what u create for yourself! But, you want everything handed to you because you r too lazy to work! So, instead, you hate and whine! Get over your self righteous self already. You think you r intellectual, but u r the exact opposite!!!
"The only barriers r within your own culture and what u create for yourself! But, you want everything handed to you because you r too lazy to work! So, instead, you hate and whine!" and what culture do i belong to in your mind i wonder(i sense the N word coming)
Of course u sense the N WORD COMING, because u r a RACIST and that is how u think.....Koonta, like n a knockoff screenname from the movie Roots---trying to be all bold with that because u r soooo intelligent. I'm Sicilian and live in Madrid and even here n Western Europe we know how entitlement ruins everything! Look at your black leader OBAMA and how he has increased entitlement! It ruined France, and next is Israel, but they r a fighting people who will stop it. Look at AFRICA, all black leaders and no civilization! Ever heard of a black leader who could do anything but incite racism and increase the nation's povert and entitlement level! No, you haven't!
Look, Man. I've been watching the UFC since it's inception in 93, and I've trained MMA off and on since 99. I'm Filipino and I enjoy watching Munoz, Pacquioa, Nover, and Vera fight as much as the next guy. But I don't only like Filipino fighters and I don't obsess over white vs other countries or even think about that very much except for maybe when an American fights a Brazilian or Canadian. Even then, I still root for Brazilians many times. I don't know any American MMA fans that only root for their race or think it's as big of an issue like you. The MMA fanbase is going to continue to grow in all demographics because it's an entertaining sport, period. White fans that have been watching for years aren't just going to stop liking the sport because there are less white champions.
good for you. you are clearly a true hardcore fan. but even then you admit your tendancy to be a fan of filipino fighters. this stuff is mostly subconscious. its human nature to like those that are most like you. the ones you most identify with.
try this test. ask your filipino friends and family to name their favorite fighters. ask your black friends to name theirs, ask mexicans, ask puerto ricans ask brazilians.
what you will find is that they are more likely to be fans of fighters that match them in either, nationality, culture or race. they won't name that as a reason but that is the natural tendancy. much like in boxing the day will come where mma is nearly free of white/american/english speaking fighters.
this will tend to draw in less white/american/english speaking fans in the future
PS. That wasn't a sideshow. That was two athletes who've worked their asses of to get where they're at, with more skill than you, in better shape than you, accomplishing more than you will in your lifetime in less than five minutes. A sideshow would be one of them against you with one hand tied behind their back and still kicking your ass.

Not a single comment on the fight so far, only stupid people losing time to answer to Koonta the loser who spams all topics with chat related to race (do you even watch the videos Koonta). Don't waste your time anymore with this guy, comment fight talks please guys. GREAT ONE RONDA !

hopefully they bring in more divisions for the girls.
to tell you the truth when i first watched women's mma, i had my doubts but i have to say that after watching a few fights these women are impressive. this was a great fight and worthy of headlining the show, i know that Ronda and women's mma in general gets a lot of stick, i have seen comment on here referring to this fight as a side show! i disagree i think that Ronda and the women's division can only do good things for the business. i hope to see more of these girls soon and this can only mean good things for the ufc as it introduces new fans to the sport. a lot of men look down at women's mma and i think its wrong, after all they are trained athletes who work the ass off to make it here and have the balls to get in the octagon. that deserves respect and i hope that these women can silence the critics after this showing, good stuff from both Ronda and Liz. i respect that Liz doesn't hide that she`s gay, i just wish some of the mma fans would get over the school yard stereotyping and just enjoy that there sport is branching out. im glad dana has finally seen sense and lets hope the poster girl for women's mma can attract new fans and make ufc even bigger.
