Video of the Day - Satoko Shinashi
Satoko Shinashi (28-1-2) just won the Deep Flyweight Women's tournament beating Fukuko Hamada (4-2) then Sachi Sachi (4-3) by armbar in the finals. She is one of the biggest stars in women's MMA. I'd love to see a match-up with Megumi Fujii (14-0). Other stars of women's MMA include Tara LaRosa (15-1), Amanda Buckner (11-4), Jennifer Howe (13-2), and Gina Carano (5-0). Check out the video below for highlights of Satoko's great career.
For those of you who don't think women should be allowed to compete in MMA (Karo Parisyan cough), get out of the 18th century. Women can fight and die in the military and do anything else a guy can do. Right now, the only problem with women's MMA is that there aren't enough fighters.
