    From only TUF contestants to Paige van Zant, Jessica Eye, Felice Herring, potentially Mackensie Dern and Valentina. The divison is developing quickly

    Living in the future, so the present is my past.
    Ehh, its a jumble of good and mediocre fighters from 2 different divisions.

    Valentina being the clear standout with Herrig potentially a perennial contender, and McKenzie a perennial top 10 kind of fighter.

    I'm pretty sure Herrig hasn't gone up to 125.

    They need to do a TUF in Korea or Japan and bring in some Asian gals.

    I would love a TUF Korea, with KZ and Dooho as the coaches, all Korean women, at 125 lbs.

    Yeah but its only been a year and we got 4 or 5 good fighters in the top 15 rankings. In most divisions it took almost a decade to get that many

    The next TUF is probably the last one. Women's 145 and Men's 265.
    Why you bring PVZ as a good fighter and not the girl that beat her? Same for Eye..
    It seems these are the fighters you like or at least know, not the good ones.

    Jennifer Maia and others make good additions. Maia is easily one of the best in the class.

    Potentially one of the most shallow divisions on the roster.

    It's sandwiched between the only two divisions that have oversized and undersized girls in them respectively. Sure 125 may not be empty but it's taking the talent away from the other divisions that are already pretty shallow.

    It is the most heavily populated female division.

    Could be a decent WMMA division in the future... but right now the only fighter most remember is Valentina.

    No problem, it's Jessy Jess or Jessica Rose Clark
    Alexis Davis, who beat Jessica Eye, is also on that division now. She's 6-2 UFC and she has a great ground game.
