Ronda Rousey is the UFC‘s first female bantamweight champion. Nike Free Damen. I want womens MMA to be successful because the better the sport does, the deeper the roots go, the more chance there is of bringing the health and fitness side of the sport to regular folks. Only, in my opinion, this is too much too soon. On February 23, Liz Carmouche is set to face Ronda Rousey for the title in the main event at UFC 157. Carmouche is 2-2 in her last four fights, which includes a loss to Sarah Kaufman. Kaufman lost her last fight in less than one minute to Rousey. Carmouche is a talented, aggressive, and well-rounded fighter, but Rousey is a former Olympian who seems to be on another level. Rousey has won six fights in under eight minutes combined. If it was not for Miesha Tate taking four minutes and 27 seconds, Ronda would have less than four minutes of cage time. Rousey has been so dominant that her championship career can be measured in seconds. Womens MMA is Growing Invicta Fight Championships is dedicated to women only and they have been building a great deal in the past year. Strikeforce had a solid stable of women willing to get in the cage and scrap and there is a lot of positive growth in the sport. My hope for WMMA is that the UFC stepping in will give women the ability to gain top dollar sponsors, and make this a viable career. Super Fight? The only fight fans really want to see is another super fight. Much the same as the Georges St-Pierre vs. Anderson Silva scenario, fans in WMMA want to see one fight - Ronda Rousey vs. Cristiane (Cyborg) Santos. The problem is that is 135-pounds vs. 145-pounds. Fans of the sport realize those two are both dominant in their respective categories. Santos lost her first fight seven years ago, and has been on a 10-fight win streak since, with eight of those by knockout. Santos has the kickboxing skills from Chute Box that would give Ronda a lot of difficulty. Santos tested positive after a successful title defense in January 2012, but with Santos California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) suspension coming to an end in a couple months, so she would be available to fight. The problem is that the only person out there who, on paper, could give Rousey a run for her money is 1) A convicted cheater and 2) Too heavy to fight her. Focus On The Positive With the UFCs involvement MMA is now a viable income earning sport for women, that means more female wrestlers, judo players, and martial artists who may look at it as a way to test themselves. Currently, there are not a lot of fighters with the training, or skill set to take on Rousey or Santos, but who knows where we will be in three years. After watching the Olympics this past summer, there are a lot of female competitors who may not want to put the next four years into Olympic training. That means they are at the physical level needed to turn pro, and with the right coaching in striking and perfection of the MMA ground game, we may close the gap sooner than concerned spectators like me imagined. Either way, its happening, so I welcome it. Ladies of MMA, its now up to you to make this work. You have got your shot, make it count! Nike Free 6.0.

Johns in a shootout as the Portland Pirates beat the IceCaps 4-3 in American Hockey League action Saturday. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Mark Sanchez knows he wont be the New York Jets starting quarterback this week. Beyond that, the one-time face of the franchise wont say whether he thinks hell be back with the team next season. "I really havent even thought about it," Sanchez said Friday. "Honestly, Im a Jet. Thats all Ive known." Sanchez struggled mightily Monday night in a 14-10 loss at Tennessee, throwing four interceptions and losing the football on New Yorks final offensive play as the Jets were eliminated from playoff contention. Coach Rex Ryan decided Tuesday to give Greg McElroy the start Sunday against San Diego at MetLife Stadium. Whether Sanchez has played his final snap for the Jets remains to be seen. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Thursday that the Jets will consider all of their options regarding Sanchez and backup Tim Tebow. Trades in the off-season cannot be ruled out, but the person, who requested anonymity because the teams personnel plans are private, told the AP that the Jets have not made any determinations involving Sanchez or Tebow. "Im focused on this game and the game next week," Sanchez said, declining to address any trade rumours. "Well assess all that stuff at a later date." Ryan also would not comment on the futures of the quarterbacks, and wouldnt announce who McElroys backup will be against the Chargers. "Quite honestly, its going to be a coachs decision and Ill go ahead and make that decision later," Ryan said. "Ive said theres a possibility all three guys will be up and theres a possibility two will be up. Im not going to make that decision just yet." Ryan added that its possible that "maybe" he has decided already and just wont say. Either way, Sanchez will not be under centre at the start of the game for only the second time in his career, and first for something other than an injury. McElroy took the majority of the snaps with the first-team offence throughout the week, making for a somewhat strange scene as both Sanchez and Tebow watched. "I wouldnt say its been normal," Sanchez said. "In that way, its different, but at the same time, you have to be a pro, do the right thing, help Greg and prepare him like I always do." The Jets will likely be hard-pressed to trade or cut Sanchez, who is due $8.25 million in guarantees next season after having his contract extended last off-season. He would cost the JJets a $17. Nike Free Laufschuhe Herren.1 million salary cap hit next season if he is cut, but New York could spread that amount over the next two seasons if he is released after June 1. The salary cap hit would still be a costly $8.9 million if the Jets do find a willing trading partner. That could be further complicated by the fact Sanchez has turned the ball over an NFL-leading 50 times since the start of last season. Tebow, who will be traded or cut before the NFLs free agency period begins in March, has two years remaining on his contract. But, it would cost the Jets only a little more than $1 million against the salary cap if they cut him. Meanwhile, McElroy will be making his first NFL start on Sunday after he made his first appearance three weeks ago against Arizona and helped New York to a 7-6 win after coming in for a benched Sanchez. The former Alabama star said friends asked him if he was excited the world didnt end, as the Mayan calendar predicted for Friday, before he got out there against the Chargers. "Yeah, Im glad that were still around," a smiling McElroy said. "Im glad that everythings OK. I wasnt really worried about it." McElroy, who was 5 of 7 for 29 yards and the games only touchdown against Arizona, hasnt felt any awkwardness among his fellow quarterbacks, considering hes starting for the former fifth overall draft pick in 2009 and leapfrogged Tebow on the depth chart. "Theyve been extremely helpful and Im very grateful for that," McElroy said. "Im just thankful to have such great guys in the (quarterbacks) room with me." The biggest change during the week, McElroy said, was the number of interviews he had to do once Ryan named him the starter. "Im probably getting sunburnt from the lights," the fair-skinned and freckle-faced McElroy said, laughing. "Thats about it." NOTES: TE Dustin Keller (sprained ankle) and DB Aaron Berry (hamstring) are doubtful and unlikely to play Sunday. ... Defensive co-ordinator Mike Pettine, a close friend of Ryan, turned down a contract extension during the season, according to the Daily News. That means he could opt to leave for a similar position or head coaching job elsewhere. Ryan wouldnt comment, but said he thinks there isnt "any doubt" Pettine could be an NFL head coach. ... Antonio Cromartie, who has filled in admirably for the injured Darrelle Revis as the teams top cornerback, was selected by teammates as the Jets MVP. ' ' '
