Women will be in the UFC, Deal with it!

New York City- a place where eight million people of different races, creed and orientations share a city only 300 sq. miles large.  I grew up there and because of that, I’m proud to say that I’m a bit of a social liberalist.

The UFC in 2013: Who can challenge Anderson Silva and will it be Michael Bisping or Chris Weidman?
