Does it really matter if a referee is male or female?
Is it a conditioned misconception that a woman can’t do the same job as a man? Especially in a male dominated sport that is, let’s face it, as brutal as a sport can be. Assuming women are any more sensitive to violence than men.
With the recent focus on weight cutting, it’s become ever more apparent that alterations to the current system in mixed martial arts need to be made. If you’re a die-hard fight fan, then you’ve probably been affected in some way by the process of cutting weight. Whether your favourite fighter has put their health at risk, whether you’ve seen terrible performances due to poor refueling and rehydration, or whether you haven’t even got to see some of the fights you’ve been looking forward to most, it’s not been the most reliable process, right? It’s no joke, weight cutting in MMA needs to be regulated.
