HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – An article posted on mmafighting.com says that on Friday, Brazil could watch the first professional MMA fight between a man and a woman in its history.

The website says the three-round bantamweight fight would be between Emerson Falcao and Juliana Valasquez. An official in charge of regulating these kinds of events is not sure if they will allow the male vs. female fight to happen, but says there isn't anything specific in the rules prohibiting a man and woman to fight.
