I happen to stumble across this video the other day and thought it would be good to revisit and share. Women's MMA has been around for awhile now but this fight just over two years ago made a statement that it had arrived. Carano versus Cyborg was the first women's MMA fight to headline a major event and still ranks as the second most watched event in the history of the Strikeforce promotion. Although not completely mainstream yet women's MMA has made some great strides since the epic fight between Carano and Cyborg. New promotions are featuring the ladies, more talented women joining the sport everyday and the recent announcement that Strikeforce just renewed its contract with Showtime with Dana White commenting that the women's divisions will remain as he has been attacked by the fans weekly for its popularity. Will we see the ladies in UFC one day? That remains to be seen but the ladies are definitely making a statement and are here to stay.
