One of the most entertaining, hard hitting sports, is bringing another aspect to the octagon that will have fans freaking out. The UFC runs a tight ship when it comes to there professional fights with weight classes, referees, and measures to make sure that their fighters are as safe as possible, even though it is their job to beat each other up.
The question is will their next stunt be one to break them or make them? it has been announced for the first time ever in UFC history that a male fighter will be facing a female fighter in months to come. The fighters have yet to be announced, but the contract is a go, and the fight will take place in Chicago, Illinois.
“I’ve seen the female fighters really making some great moves in the octagon, and the ratings for their fights have been going up, and up since we started that branch of the UFC.” said Dana White
“My team and I have decided to take it to the next level, and see if some of these ladies can compete against the men. If all goes like planned the first Co-Ed fight will take place in Chicago.”
Rules and regulations will be switched up for the fight, to make sure that neither fighter will get hurt, or hurt the other opponent to the point of serious damage. A few names have been spoken, but the official bout has yet to be determined, or at least made public.
“I’ll tell you one thing, if a female fighter knocks out a male fighter, it will prove that women belong in this sport. I watch some of my girl fighters, and I am blown away by there fighting skills, so when the idea was pitched to me I had no hesitation to go ahead with the bout.” said White
