True. And title fights are 5 rounds. Will she have the gas tank to dominate a large opponent like Calderwood? Will Claudia even make weight in the future (when there is no allowances for title fights)? 142 to 115 is a huge cut, and I'm not sure she can do it consistently for very long.

I didn`t see her fight this time, but I think Gadelha is the woman to beat if you want the SW strap. She`ll be waiting for whoever comes out of TUF 20 with it. The only person who I think matches up well with her - Jag - doesn`t fight in the UFC (yet). Jojo, Kish, and even Tecia might be able to hurt Claudia standing, and all three have bigger gas tanks, but they won`t be able to stop her takedowns...especially if she`s coming in at like 140 lbs. Still, if you asked the question: "Who will be the straw weight champ 10 months from now?", you`d get 7-8 different, plausible answers from people. I think Gadelha is the front runner, but it will be interesting to see how things play out.

P.S. One reason I was such an advocate of Ansaroff coming in as a straw weight was I thought she could give Gadelha a tough match up. But alas, she didn`t make it into the house.
