I'd actually be interested in Ronda/Dominick. Most likely Dominick's footwork would be too much, but I think it'd be cool to see how his takedown D would stand up against her judo!

i appreciate the idea, and i usually agree with you ben, but i still think this would be a massacre, even if they weighed the same, i just don't think a typical woman can offer anything up for a typical man when it comes to hand to hand combat

throw ronda in the ring with a joe schmo, maybe, but i just don't think there is any comparison against any male in the ufc

call me a chauvanist but i ain't

Yeah, I hear ya. I mean, that's the closest thing to a competetive male/female match-up. Cyborg/Aldo at 145 maybe, but other than that, I don't see any other situation where it'd even be in the realm of possibility.

I don't even like seeing male/female wrestling or martial arts competitions. It just feels wrong.

GOD designed men and women to be different and I think we should be celebrating those differences,
