    Im european my gf is 56 kg's like probably most of her friends...I got father in US and basically M size in US = L size in Europe... same with shoes American are just bigger... doesn't matter.
    But america ain't whole world, not to mention lets not forget those girls cut good 10 pounds... or more who knows...

    ps:
    Just counted 145 lbs that's almost 66kg's... i would get crushed in bed with that extra 10 kg's... hmm or maybe I should...;). Hands down I can see your point, best of luck.

    KK outstruck Inoue, Jessica Penne beat RENA in stand up rules, Hill and Jojo have both looked inferior in striking despite their background. Not to mention all the strikers JJ beat in MT.

    Imo it looks bad on 135 that a natural 115er made the top 10, and a natural 125er is ranked 2nd and gave the champ a very close fight. Not trying to hate on 135, Ronda was pretty cool, its pretty clear though that female fighters cluster arround 112-118 and 135 is the equivalent of men's 205.

    Not if you research actual fighter numbers instead of relying on flawed (read: shit) "common sense."

    125 = men's LW since the most fighters fight there, 135 = WW and 115 = FW. 145 = MW, 105 = BW and WMMA is too shallow for an equivalent of LHW, HW, and FLW to really exist at the moment.

    Man I really hate these stupid assumptions so many make based on their "common sense" regarding what size fit women (who in this case train grappling and are likely to build muscle) should be which really consists of perceptions warped by media. Why are people such sheep...

    Its not common sense, its years of watching combat sports. Most fight at 125? Maybe in MMA, in more established and global sports like boxing and kickboxing it seems cluster as I said. I see more women fighting at 108 than 125 actually. Btw, passive aggressive is a bad look for you.
