Note from Melanie: Diva Dirt would like to welcome MarQ P, the founder of Wombat Sports, to Diva Dirt as our new lead MMA writer. MarQ will be reporting news, as well as delivering exclusive interviews and analysis of all things WMMA. Welcome, MarQ!
We at Wombat Sports are happy to be new partners with Diva Dirt to give you, pro wrestling fans, coverage of women’s mixed martial arts.
Firstly, a little about Wombat Sports. The site was created by myself in 2011 after working as the news editor for Fightergirls for three years. We cover all women’s combat sports, including boxing, kickboxing, submission grappling, and predominately MMA. I have had the pleasure of interviewing some of the best in the business, including Gina Carano, Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate and Rosi Sexton, just to name a few.
Female wrestlers and MMA fighters have a lot in common: both sports take feats of athletic skill, a true passion, and a determination to want to prove you can hang with the big boys.
There will be some things that will look very familiar to you, and some things you’ve never seen. Our hope is to educate and make you fall in love with MMA as much as we have. Several times a week, we will provide you with interviews, insights, and fight coverage to help you enjoy the fastest growing female sport in the US. You will learn about the biggest and fastest rising stars in the sport, as well as the different MMA promotions and cards.
To give you a taste of what MMA has to offer, here is our hit YouTube video highlighting some of the best knockouts in WMMA. And yes, there is a powerbomb in there!
