Jump right to Women’s MMA News!

MMA Full Contact is proud to dedicate a portion of our site to Women’s MMA. Although it still occasionally struggles to find the same acceptance as Men’s MMA, when given the chance, the women have proved time and time again that they bring it! Technical, hard-hitting, and fast-paced, Women’s MMA often steals any show that it appears on. In recognition of this, major MMA organizations like EliteXC and Strikeforce have added some great female fights to their events in the last few years, and Strikeforce even broke new ground when their nationally televised August 2009 event was headlined by Gina Carano fighting Cristiane Santos for the Women’s Lightweight Championship.

With that in mind, MMAFC has aligned with the top advocates of Women’s MMA, Fightergirls.com. They’ve been involved with the sport since its inception and continue to be the top resource for Women’s MMA news and statistics. They’ve even evolved to include a clothing line!

Women’s MMA has also seen recognition as headliners to mainstream MMA events. When this occurs the betting lines have picked up these fights, all of which adds to the fact that they are here to stay. So even within online casino reviews USA you will continue to see the number of female fighters growing in the sport and within the betting lines.

New articles will be added on a weekly basis, so continue to check back often.

Here is the latest news provided by our colleagues at Fightergirls.com:
