    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Fedor f*cks himself, but helps women's MMA in the process...

    Dana White will have nothing to do with women's MMA. Strikeforce has the two top female fighters, Carano and Cyborg.

    I personally like women's MMA, so while this Strikeforce deal sucks for Fedor fans, his move to Strikeforce on Showtime will potentially give women's MMA a chance.

    Don't the ladies deserve it?

    Everyone is an expert on what is good for Fedor Emelianenko all of a sudden. How did he **** himself, exactly? By signing a deal which he felt was fair and which allows him to pursue his long-term goals? Yeah, that was really dumb.

    How is this bad for Fedor fans? This means we can see him fight again pretty soon. If he had not signed with Strikeforce, he might not have had another fight for quite a while.

    You might be right about the impact on women's MMA. But I think the biggest obstacle is cultural, not promotional.

    let women's mma become a bit bigger of a draw with some more bodies in the weight classes, and white will start women's fights and outspend strikeforce in the process.

    I didn't mean to speak for Fedor fans, but that just seemed like the consensus so far. I'm completely open to that being proven wrong...

    But the deal will still bring promotion to a franchise that has a women's division...

    But in order for that to happen, Strikeforce needs to exist and potentially legitimize women's MMA.

    The Carano/Cyborg fight may go a long way to help that to happen.
