Ultimate Female MMA Fighter Presents News & Info on WMMA & Women's MMA

Career Bitch is taking off...and we don't just mean her clothes!

Ms. B - CareerBitchBelinda Dunne - CareerBitch

One way or another, female MMA is getting in the news and getting noticed. Female fighters have battled the stereotype of either not having skills, or of being butch, in order to prove they are capable of fighting in the ring.


In the past, Miesha Tate caused a stir when she posed for Fight! Magazine. When asked about the shoot, she said that if that's what she had to do to get interest going for female MMA fighters, then she didn't see a problem with it. Take a look:

Apparently not only did her concept work for her (witness her rise to WMMA fame and notoriety), but other women in the industry have taken a page from Tate's book and are starting to use their good looks and feminine skills to get female MMA noticed as well...enter Michele Gutierrez and Felice Herrig.


This racy photo shoot for Supremacy MMA features Felice Herrig and Michele Gutierrez. You'll note the ladies talking about the fact that new doors are now being opened for them, in Supremacy MMA and MMA overall:



 

And now comes Belinda Dunne, the hot promoter from New Zealand and head of Princesses of Pain. I asked Ms. B, as she's affectionately known in the industry, why she's started this new "online reality series" based on, well, herself!


"Well first off, it's no longer Ms. B - it's Career Bitch now, 'cause that's what I am! K -- this trashy crap (you can quote me) is the latest way for POP to gain attention which translates into making money. It's funny and this is working. When it builds it will help POP bring international fighters here. Thank you!"


There must be something to her idea, as she's had over 3,000 views in just one night on Episode 2 of Career Bitch. See the latest episode here, and then tell me what you think of "Ms. B's" adventures.

 


So what do you think? Some people are calling the show trash, some are calling it crap, and some are hailing it as a brilliant marketing campaign. Do you think this type of image is good for women in MMA or? I want to hear from you!

Mauro Ranallo Rappin' with some MMA Fighters!

I think Mauro Ranallo is great people and a true treasure in the MMA world. Here he is rappin' at the MGM with Tam, Stef, and Jess...he's hysterical!


But Mauro - I just have to say it: I can slam a beer down a lot faster than you. Don't know if that's something to be proud of or not, but I'm just saying... ;-)

Interview with WMMA fighter: Catherine Costigan

Catherine CostiganWritten by This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

I recently had the pleasure, no the honour - and not just because she is one of the fighting Irish ;) - to interview one of the many amazingly talented and successful athletes of mixed martial arts, Catherine Costigan…a fighter with a solid background of wins.

Costigan is not only dedicated to her sport, but she is also one who is dedicated to helping others reap the health benefits of mixed martial arts training, as she coaches and changes many lives of both men and women with her Body Power program. I wanted to know more about this spitfire and what she feels makes a champion a champion as well as wanting her to help bring to light some of the experiences she has had and the adversity she faces and feels others may face as a woman in the sport.

MT: How long have you been involved in the sport of mixed martial arts or other combat sports?

Costigan: I started when I was 14 in freestyle kickboxing and points style fighting with my coach Dermot McGrath. This background gives me a big edge in timing, speed and strategy. How to take the opponent apart bit by bit. 
When the first UFC came out on video we started training MMA as much as we could straight away.

MT: Have you ever been involved in traditional martial arts?

Costigan: I never thought that the martial arts I joined were super traditional, the style that I did was open to ways and ideas about fighting creating an all round martial artist. I wear my white Karate gi and black belt to the cage as I do believe there is something special about it. To me it akin to the samurai donning his armour and colours before battle. I am true to tradition there and in my attitudes as a martial artist, especially in respect.

MT: What has been the biggest challenge for you thus far in the sport?

Costigan: I’d have to say coming through injuries, getting opponents and sparring partners at Atomweight (105 lbs).
