Miesha: GSP is ignorant about WMMA

At the UFC 154 open workouts the now undisputed UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre offered some narrow remarks about women's MMA.
"For the woman fight, I say it's good for her, and I mean for the girls that fight," said St-Pierre. "But me personally I have a hard time watching the girls fight."
"In my heart I have, you know, it's the way I grew up maybe, the mentality is different, I'm old school. have a hard time watching girls fighting; it's hard for me. I never really watched a woman fight, but I know they are pretty good."
Former Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion took issue with the remarks.
I think the problem with GSP's view about WMMA is that he doesn't have one. If he hasn't ever watched us women fight then he can't say how he really feels about it because he's ignorant.

Being old fashioned is fine, but us "modern day" girls aren't asking for your protection, we are asking for your acceptance and we are fighting for equality.
If everyone felt about MMA as GSP thinks he feels about WMMA, then he wouldn't have a job.

I'm hoping George St. Pierre can open his mind a little bit and actually watch some women's fights. We're coming to the UFC for a reason and it would be nice to have one of my all-time favorite fighter's full support.
It won't take long for him to realize we aren't these fragile little creatures when we enter the cage, we are warriors and every bit as deserving of respect as the men.
