    christ alive. imagine that you were incredibly good looking LOL - that alone can get you a job as long as you walk in the right direction and smile at the right time. unreal.

    but to be fair, this is Australia we are talking about. the nation that tolerates the highest levels of sexist pub banter as a culture. something has to be done.

    I can understand people not liking the concept of ring girls. I disagree, but I can understand their position. What I cannot understand is the notion that things you dislike need to be banned.

    I do not understand why the women weren't simply asked to change outfits? Then as new positions opened for hiring they could have opened them up to men as well. Why was it such a big deal? Why did men have to replace them immediately and take their pay?

    Just a suggestion : Train some Kangaroos to hop around with the Round cards held up........and then fire all ring card girls from UFC. I for one would not miss em if I can watch a Roo bouncing about.
    MAKE IT HAPPEN DANA!!

    The UK started this shit by banning racing grid girls and even walk-out girls at the darts (who often wore full-length dresses).

    Formula 1 is back - without the grid girls

    So unfortunately this isn't just a retarded Australian thing, and it will hit US shores soon enough.

    The ring girls literally wear more clothes than the male fighters.

    As I said in a previous post, they banned darts walk-out girls in the UK, where usually they wore full-length dresses. So the clothes wouldn't appease them.

    Hillbillies, you have my permission to start ranting about a 'PC world gone mad', because in this case, you're right.

    While I've always found the practice tacky, I don't support banishment of most things. If you don't enjoy something, don't watch.

    However, if there are to be ring card girls, they should be taken from the pool of female fighters. No offense to existing ring card girls but I think the female fighters are hotter. But maybe that's just my taste.

    I'd like to see ring girls be taken from the hosting cities pool of attractive women. Every event we get a fresh line up and it may be the push one special lady needs to get a modeling contact.

    But what makes you think female fighters would be interested in doing that?

    Pointless imo

    And they’re not hot, don’t want to see a bruised up, scar faced woman doing it.......ever

    You’re pandering to a predominantly male crowd, keep the ring girls

    I think a ring girls top and bottom, if combined would cover less surface area than the shorts of a male fighter.

    That being said, I don’t see why ring girls had to be banned. in my opinion, The only purpose they serve is to look good for a male dominant crowd, but they were also fun/good to have around. They wave at the camera and smile, and it makes people feel good. It’s like a hot model is smiling right at you. You don’t get that often unless your dating/married to one, But then you have to deal with the crazy.

    we need more hot models smiling at people. The world would be a happier place.

    What if women were allowed to do whatever job they want without other women/men telling them they can't?
