I was at a bar on December 30 with a few friends watching Ortiz-Liddell. My friend (also female) and I were discussing our favorites, not just the main event but the undercards. As we talked, a man interrupted us and asked “How do YOU know so much about the UFC?” I looked at my friend, giggled, and said “How do YOU know about the UFC?” This is a theme that’s been repeated many times in my life: when I tell people I’m going to a girls’ weekend at the NCAA wrestling tournament, or when I’m the only girl at a UFC-watching party. At that moment, I decided that I needed to show that women can be more than ring girls (Xyience girls?) So, voila, chicks dig fights!
A note about coverage: I wish I had the time to cover all MMA and amateur wrestling news, but alas, unless someone can make this my job, I cannot cover everything. I limit my blogging to (mostly) the UFC, college wrestling, and international wrestling during major events to make sure that the coverage has quality, if not quantity.
