    Seriously, with the opening of the flyweight (125 lbs) and featherweight (145) divisions UFC won't have enough girls to make a competitive top 15 BW, even a top 10.

    Some girls are going to this 125 so they can get a shot at the winner of this TUF (filled with bums to some extent) and Holly/Zingano appears to be interested in fighting Cyborg. Furthermore, Ronda is retired and Penna just got pregnant.

    Wtf man, at early 2016 BW had Nunes, Holm, Rousey, Tate, Shevchenko, Zingano and now Raquel Pennington will probably fight for the belt, with Ketlen Vieira being next (3-0 UFC).

    UFC Women Bantamweight Rankings right now:

    1) Valentina Shevchenko – going to 125
    2) Holly Holm – going to 145
    3) Julianna Pena – inactive
    4) Raquel Pennington
    5) Ronda Rousey – inactive
    6) Cat Zingano – inactive
    7) Sara McMann
    8) Germaine de Randamie
    9) Ketlen Vieira
    10) Alexis Davis – going to 125
    11) Liz Carmouche – going to 125
    12) Marion Reneau
    13) Katlyn Chookagian – going to 125
    14) Bethe Correia
    15) Leslie Smith

    This will be the future of WBW:

    1) Raquel Pennington
    2) Sara McMann
    3) Germaine de Randamie
    4) Ketlen Vieira (why the fuck she is behind Sara if they just fought and Vieira finished her?)
    5) Marion Reneau
    6) Bethe Correia
    7) Leslie Smith

    Isn't Penne currently on a USADA suspension anyway?

    <Fedor23>

    As far as Vieira being behind McMann?

    Probably strength of schedule...you don't just switch ranking spots because you beat someone.

    Women's BW has always been the worst division -- that is, until Women's FW came along.

    'why the fuck she is behind Sara if they just fought and Vieira finished her?'

    Because you don't automatically leapfrog somebody just because you beat them.

    So what you are saying is get rid of WMMA all together? I agree.

    Honestly I'm not usually interested in the WMMA fights on cards. Especially since Ronda lost

    Some of girls who go to 125 will go back to 135 due to weightcuting issue or lack of title-shot opportunity.
    Holly Holm likely will go back to 135 if she loses to Cyborg.
    Tonya Evinger will look for another pay day at 135
    Apsen Ladd is a promising prospect

    I'm talking about Juliana Penna, the BW fighter. Penne (suspended) is a WSW (115).

    She should. She is undefeated at MMA and 3-0 at UFC. I'm a fan of Sara but 5-4 and 3-0 at UFC you always should go with 3-0.

    I hope so. At least someone here has faith, i'm struggling to be that positive.

    Women's featherweight is still worse lol

    It's a one fighter division. There has never been a more unnecessary waste of time in UFC history

    They only made it so they could hand Cyborg a title to wear

    Yeah but that doesn't really count, 145 is a super new division, but of the old 10 weight classes (2 female and 8 male MMA) WBW will be by far the worst. Back then it was better than WSW, FLW and even HW..

    They still have Pennington, De Randamie, and Viera as contenders for Amanda Nunes. They have not reached rematch-hell like LHW has.

    And also, McMann is ranked above Viera......... Okay.

    '145 is a super new...' That doesn't make a difference. 125 doesn't even exist and you're already saying it's going to be better than 135. 145 might be new to the UFC, but it's not new to MMA. We can look at existing global 145 rankings and see that the talent pool is garbage/non-existent. That's not going to change just because the UFC made the mistake of adding it. At no point was WBW better than male Flyweight or Heavyweight.

    Why is GDR even mentioned? She pulled the biggest duck move ever. Lost her belt because she was afraid to lose. I don't want to hear about steroids. Cyborg has passed every test USADA has given her.

    Almost all of WMMA is terrible, theres only a few girls I can stand watching without changing the channel.

    Its honestly killing my enjoyment, I dont want to watch that shit and its a pain for me to flip back and forth when a WMMA fight comes on. Lately I've just been keeping my Switch nearby and playing Zelda when the girl fights come on.

    Except she hasn't. There would've been no reason to give Cyborg a retroactive TUE for a test that she passed.

    They said it was fine. She was prescribed by a doctor. Move on.
