    This is something that effects female athletes in every sport. You often see careers cut short to raise families. But this is actually pretty unique because of the physicality of the sport. I'm about seven years shy of my law degree but I'm pretty sure that it is unconstitutional to force a fighter to take a pregnancy test, that being said it's up to the fighters to be sure they aren't putting themselves, or their child in danger.

    From her opponent's perspective, yes.

    I would not feel comfortable punching a pregnant chick.

    Neither would I.
    I wouldn't feel comfortable knowing that a women in a pregnant state was fighting full contact, either. Knowingly, that is. That screams 'something is wrong here'.
