I've studied History; female Gladiators were quite uncommon, historically the male was much, much superior to a female.

Domitian is purported to have had female gladiators fight dwarfs in the arena. As noted in the writings of Dio Cassius, "Often he would conduct the games also at night, and sometimes he would pit dwarfs and women against each other" (67.8.2).

I recall reading years ago that the scene in Gladiator with the woman (women?) shooting arrows at the men was historically inaccurate, they weren't allowed to compete with men like that.

we should change the title of this thread to "Can a dwarf defeat a female gladiator?"

No matter who a woman trains with, she will NEVER be as good as any man. Not trying to insult my gender but it is the truth.

Of course at world class level, women won’t be competitive with men, in much the same way that a decent heavyweight will beat a good lightweight. If, however, you’re saying that a world class woman won’t beat even a novice man at the same weight – then you’re just plain wrong :-)

Going back to the original post, I think it depends on what sport the male pro athlete plays. Against a 215 pound NFL player, I would probably bet that he beats Ronda. Against let's say, a 170 pound professional tennis player or a 140 pound professional marathon runner, I would bet Rousey (or Holm now) wins pretty easily.

I wouldn't bet on the 215 pound NFL player. I recall a post of Veve Lane, where she states to have wrestled a big professional footballplayer and beat him. And Veve is "just" a brown belt as far as I know.
In fighting size and weight are important variables , but only when there is a base of skill. Stating that a NFL player would by default beat a woman is ignoring the skill factor, and years of training. It's like saying that someone is the best at playing the piano because he has beautiful hands.

I don't recall ever seeing that. @[Only Registered Users Can See LinksClick Here To Register] is this true?? You beat a NFL player in a competitive match?

But either way, a mma match is different from a wrestling match. A 135 pound female mma fighter, no matter how much more skilled she is, will be knocked out cold with one clean punch from a 215 pound man who is an elite athlete. In a wrestling match, the guy can't end the match by catching the woman with one move.

I found the post [Only Registered Users Can See LinksClick Here To Register] .
I stand corrected about him being a NFL player, (although it doest say he wasn't NFL). You still get what I meant
