via 1.bp.blogspot.com

News channel CNN will be airing a story looking inside the world of Women's MMA this Sunday  night. The story will be hosted by Amber Lyon, an Emmy-award winning journalist who promises to look at why women step into the cage for little financial reward and recognition. Here's the writeup on it, and you can catch the video preview for it after the jump. Bloody Elbow will be providing a live discussion post for the show Sunday as well.

Mixed Martial Arts, or M.M.A., is a full contact combat sport that was once banned in much of the United States.  Today, it’s one of the fastest growing sports among men… and now women.  But why would any woman climb into a cage for all-out combat for what amounts to almost nothing?  CNN’s Amber Lyon steps into the Octagon to find out.

"Fighter Girls" is one of four riveting stories airing on CNN Presents hosted by CNN’s Soledad O’Brien and Dr. Sanjay Gupta this Sunday, October 23 at 8:00 pm ET, re-airing at 11:00 pm ET and 2:00 am ET.
