    Ronda is probably the GOAT by resume but who do you think was the best in terms of abilities at their absolute peak out of the following candidates?

    Ronda Rousey

    Pros - longest defending and most dominant champion, destroyed many top fighters

    Cons - exposed as having a huge weakness in her (absence of) striking defense and destroyed twice

    Amanda Nunes

    Pros - arguably best resume despite fewer title defenses with wins over Ronda, Tate, Shevchenko X2 and others

    Cons - has a fair number of losses in the past and an infamous cardio weakness, some thought she lost to Shev

    Miesha Tate

    Pros - only 2 time champion and stayed near the top of the ranks for the longest time

    Cons - has many losses and lost badly to Ronda and Nunes

    Valentina Shevchenko

    Pros - viewed by many as the most skilled BW and excels despite being undersized, some think she beat Nunes

    Cons - was never champion, somewhat lacking in very big wins besides Holm

    Holly Holm

    Pros - first to beat the unstoppable Ronda in brutal fashion

    Cons - lacks great wins other than Ronda, lost decisively to Shevchenko and Tate

    Cat Zingano

    Pros - beat Nunes and Tate

    Cons - lost badly to Ronda and has the shortest resume of them all due to never fighting

    Who is the greatest MMA heroine I mean fighter?

    Definitely not Cat. Don't know why you bothered to put her on there, I hate her.

    Holly if she'd started MMA training a couple years earlier.

    She's one of the only 2 with wins over multiple others on the list (the other being Nunes). She just has no depth of resume due to fighting less than once a year lol.

    It's WMMA, who cares.

    Might need to wait awhile for the money to start making an impact in their training before we talk about the best.

    Objectively Nunes is the best so far, but its no large hill to climb. About 4 other women could overtake her in the coming year - just let the dust settle for a few years bro.

    Cat Zingano is the best WBW.

    Good. I hope she comes on here one day, and sees that I said that.

    Would she be a strawweight today?

    I disagree. Michelle is the superior striker and she has been working on her ground game.

    Probably, she's an Asian actress after all. They're mostly AW/SW sized.

    It seems to be all about style matchups

    Ronda>Tate>Holly>Ronda

    Nunes>Valentina>Holly>Ronda>Cat>Nunes

    Ronda can probably beat most everybody except Holly and Nunes because she can't keep them on the ground.

    Nunes matches up the best with everybody but a lot of people think Valentina beat her

    Holly's worst matchup is Valentina but besides her can probably beat most fighters.

    Holly vs Nunes would be an interesting stylistic matchup.

    Nunes. She hits hard, is super strong for her division, has a ground game, can take her opponents down, can evade punches, and has enough fight IQ to win. She's a far better representative of WMMA than Ronda and Miesha were, though those two deserve their place in history as pioneers.

    Unfortunately, it's Nunes.

    I prefer Valentina....
