    It's wild that JJ defended the title like 5 times in 966 days
    Yet Rose only did once in 554 days.

    True, just looked at her defences and..
    Excuse my casual fucking ass, but who is Letourneau and how on earth did she get a title shot ? lol

    Someone I definitely loved to watch fight but couldn't stand her pre-fight and staredown bullshit.

    P4P most violent division by title fights. And, this weekend, the tradition will continue. Zhang has two speeds: fast and kill.

    Letourneau had managed to string together 3 wins back when the division was fairly new. She actually came down from 135 and fought twice at 115 prior to fighting JJ. She put on a great fight vs Moroz and if I'm not mistaken she dropped Moroz in the first. Can't find the fight online so not sure if my memory is good or not.

    Anyway she put on a banger fight, had wind in her sails and wasn't a wrestler. Joanna wanted a standup fight and not just constantly face wrestlers and she got Letourneau while everyone else was busy with other fights, injured or just unavailable.

    People forget Moroz was considered dangerous back then. I'm pretty sure Letourneau beat the confidence completely out of her and Moroz wasn't the same after that. Not sure if she ever recovered.

    She and JJ put on a war. She was so tall and long that it gave Joanna a lot of trouble. JJ broke her hand a final time in this fight and was forced to change styles or retire.

    In the end all 3 of them ended up together at ATT.

    Fair, but even so! That must be one of the weirdest title fights ever? Completely slipped under my radar.

    Thanks for this, very intrigued.. Adding to the list of fights to go back and watch, just for curiosities sake.

    Jessica Andrade was offered a title fight after only her 2nd fight at 115 but turned it down to spend more time dialing in her weight cut and prep for JJ.

    If you really dig down to every opponent of every champ you can find all kinds of problems.

    Context is generally not something people care about.

    Good shit, didn't know that either., Wonder how that rematch would go now.

    Context certainly is less cared about over time I feel, unless pedantic GOAT conversations come up.

    Cheers Sherbro!

    Here's weird. The inaugural women's Flyweight championship was Nicco Montaño vs Roxanne Modafferi

    I wish so much Roxy won that! If anyone deserves some great success it's that legend with her 43 fights!
    And look what Nicco did with her opportunity :(

    It was the co-main to Ronda vs Holly. The big fight with 55K in attendance in Australia. I remember watching it on fightpass a little after I got into the sport.

    Shit was it then! I must have seen it then cos I absolutely watched that main card.. I was way less invested than I am now though, especially with people I hadn't heard of.

    Would like but ran out :(

    Zhang is next on this list. Rose, who looked much bigger and stronger is gonna stomp a mudhole in her chest in the first.
