We started Wombat Sports back in 2011 with the hope of giving the world more information and exposure of women’s combat sports, be it MMA, boxing, BJJ, kickboxing, or wrestling. Three years later, all sports have gained some ground and created new stars.
These past three years we have seen the creation of Invicta, women in the UFC, and women’s boxing in the Olympics. Women’s Muay Thai gained ground with US promotions, and women’s wrestling has expanded on all levels from the high school level to collegiate to the Olympics.
The participation of girls at younger and younger ages has also become a good sign growth won’t be stifled anytime soon.
Among our accomplishments have been covering events all across the U.S., helping introduce new stars, and connecting fans to their favorite fighters. We are a portal for information, including fight results of all types and how you can check out your favorite fighter on many different platforms. We may not be the first ones to be dedicated to female fighting, but we are seeing more and more sites pop up every day and we are proud to help inspire people to promote the female fighting community.
We are hoping to continue to grow and expand over the coming years. Increasing coverage in boxing and kickboxing, continuing to introduce new up and coming talent, and gaining relationships with promoters interested in giving female fighters opportunities to fight.
We thank you, our readers, for the continued support of the website. We also thank the fighters who have been open with us and giving up some time so we may expand the fans’ minds to their world.
Thanks to our friends and family in the female fighting community who have been the backbone of the site. Your information and insight has been invaluable to keep us as one of the top sites for female fighting news.
No clue what the next year will bring in women’s combat sports, but we are excited to be a part of the journey.
