    Over the past several years, mixed-martial arts has evolved into the world's fastest-growing sport.

    It's the real life excitement and entertainment that MMA provides to its fans that has caused it to become so popular.

    But, a majority of the credit goes to the world-class athletes that spend their lives devoted and dedicated to the sport.

    However, MMA isn't solely built on male athletes, but women as well.

    Not only are many mixed-martial artists women, but good-looking ones at that.

    Let's take a look.
