This event will be held July 28 through August 5 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The G3 Summit and Women's Fighter Conference, according to its web site,"brings the best coaches, instructors, and personalities from the women'sboxing, grappling, wrestling, and MMA all in one place." The event"will consist of seminars, fighter clinics, and competitions - includingkickboxing, grappling, and MMA."
We spoke with Tami Carswell by phone Friday afternoon about the G3 Summit andWomen's Fighter Conference. We also had a lengthy, informative, and pointeddiscussion about the position of women in combat sports, the continuedobstacles and double standards they face, and the role of sexism and stigmasagainst women fighters and athletes in limiting or denying them opportunitiesto compete.
In this epic interview, Tami Carswell destroyed many of the myths about womenin combat sports. While the talent pool may not now be as deep for womenfighters as it is for men, she countered, "Why wouldn't you want todevelop that? That's where the cop-out is." And she emphasized, "Theworld should be able to see the best of the male fighters and the best of thefemale fighters in the UFC or anything on that level."
