Her focus has been on the advancing the role of women fighters in mixed martial arts, and that was also the focus of our discussion.
During 2010, opportunities for women fighters have grown in many MMA promotions. We discussed this development, along with what to expect in 2011 and beyond. We commented on the decision victory on November 24 by Tara LaRosa over Takayo Hashi to capture the DaMMAge Fight League 125-pound belt, and on what has been happening with many of the women fighters in Strikeforce, Bellator, M-1 Global, and other organizations. We discussed the potential for an all-women's MMA group to succeed, and some of the obstacles it will face. The differences between the cultures in Japan and America, and the level of acceptance of women fighters, was also addressed, as was some of the history of pioneering women MMA fighters, such as Becky Levi. Shelley Devine also explained why women, like men, have a "warrior spirit" and should be allowed to fight wherever men do, and much more.
