The world has so many sports and games. It is hard to keep track of all these sporting events taking place worldwide. Each country has their own national sport and it highlights the history and the pride behind it. Some sports are so dangerous that they have been dominated by mostly men. But many things have changed, and one can see that women also have done a very good job when it comes to such sports.
The traditional masculinity and femininity don’t apply here. Both the genders have proved to be tough and when it comes to girls , it is no more giggling and gossipping as typical stereotypes call it. Instead its teeth grinding and and jaw dropping that bring shivers down your spines. One such sport is MMA or mixed martial arts. This sport involves the hands and legs to fight and not for play dates. It’s not surprising that these women maintain their physique and fashion at the same time.
