most violent crime is already perpetrated against women already.
Well according to the U.S. Department of Justice, that's a lie.
In 2008, females age 12 or older were five times more likely than males age 12 or older to be victims of intimate partner violence.
In 2007 intimate partners committed 14% of all homicides in the U.S.
The total estimated number of intimate partner homicide victims in 2007 was 2,340, including 1,640 females and 700 males.
Females made up 70% of victims killed by an intimate partner in 2007, a proportion that has changed very little since 1993.
Females are generally murdered by people they know. In 64% of female homicide cases in 2007, females were killed by a family member or intimate partner.
The overall rate of female homicides fell 43% between 1993 and 2007.
Between 1993 and 2008 the rate of rape or sexual assault against females declined by 70% (from 4.7 to 1.4 per 1,000 females age 12 or older). The rate of rape or sexual assault against males declined by 36% between 1993 and 2008 (from 0.5 to 0.3 per 1,000 males age 12 or older).
One in five rape or sexual assaults against females (20%) was committed by an intimate partner.
During a 12-month period in 2005 and 2006, an estimated 3.4 million persons age 18 or older were victims of stalking.
Females were at higher risk of stalking victimization than males. During the study period, females experienced 20 stalking victimizations per 1,000 females age 18 or older. The rate of stalking victimization for males was approximately 7 per 1,000 males age 18 or older.

I think some of that needs be put in perspective that most violent crime is already perpetrated against women already.
Further, there's a distinction to be made between well trained athletes putting on an exhibition sports competition display and real life.
Some people can't tell the difference, or seem to have a difficult time in doing so.
It's nice to select a report that illustrates Homicides, and only Homicides.
A "man vs. woman" fight that was expected to take place at Shooto 45 is officially canceled, according to a report from MMAFighting.com. Emerson Falcao, who has just one fight in his career, was expected to face Juliana Velasquez in her first professional bout on Friday night (Dec. 20, 2013) in Brazil (details).
coincidentally, Falcao announced that he suffered an injury in training and was unable to fight, but according to Shooto Brazil President Andre Pederneiras (via MMA Fighting), the fight was still on despite the injury.
