You can't deny the progressive nature of MMA

In terms of gender, MMA is one of the world's most progressive sports on the planet, partly due to the work of some of the biggest promotions investing in female fighters and partly due to MMA in itself being a highly inclusive sport.

Read about how inclusive MMA is and why this community was started here ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

Although there is work to do with gay fighters / athletes in MMA (our most googled article so far)๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿฝ

So it was great to see EA Sports UFC 4 in-game rankings come out recently and to recognize Amanda Nunes as the top-ranking athlete and to see some of the reactions on Twitter.

It's all mostly positive with some of the usual trolls but largely the community and the athletes responded in such a a supportive way, makes me proud to be associated with this sport, lifestyle, and community.

Yeah I saw this, I still don't think Amanda Nunes gets the recognition she deserves, Ronda Rousey was the biggest athlete in the UFC but Nunes has accomplished more yet gets less exposure and promotion. Everyone knows she is the GOAT of WMMA. Weird.
