This is crucial time period for women's fighting. When Elite XC crumbled it severely halted much of the momentum fighters like Gina Carano and Cyborg Santos had developed in front of the big CBS television audience. Carano is now in limbo awaiting a decision on her contract status. Strikeforce and possibly World Extreme Cagefighting appear to have interest in getting into the Carano-business. Kim Couture is only 1-1 in her pro fighting career but she's also serving as a bit of a spokesperson for the female side of things. Cage Writer caught up with Couture for a discussion about on women's fighting.
She says that the WEC and Dana White's backing is much needed in women's fighting:
"It would be huge. If there's anything I can do to help or Gina can do to showcase the other girls who are out there and help him learn who those girls are, who is technical, who has 20 something fights, we want to do it."
