Oh, how long ago was it that his Majesty Dana White declared on his gilded throne that nay, no womans may participate in Ye Olde Ultimate Fighting Challenges? I declareth that I know not. However, the time for women in the UFC may be nigh: a smidgeot of information gleamed from a Sherdog article says thusly regarding The Ultimate Fighter:
If September’s season six draws meager attention, then I wouldn’t be surprised to see the series take the inevitable reality TV tact of altering the format. Producer Craig Piligian recently told me that a woman’s edition has already been discussed.
Craig Piligian was the executive producer of the first season of TUF and was basically the ‘reality show expert’ the UFC poached to run the show. While Dana White and Spike TV may not always see eye to eye, Craig Piligian is a serious motherfucker and if he says women are being considered, then they’re being considered. Of course, I wouldn’t break out the lube and tissues just yet. This is but the first of hopefully many more hints the UFC is getting ready to start a women’s division.
