    Hey, all!

    Two questions for you:

    1) In your opinion, of course, and excluding Ronda Rousey, who is the best female fighter on the planet and why?

    2) Who is your personal favorite female fighter, regardless of how good they are or how much they've achieved in MMA, and why?

    I think a lot of people would take Joanna for both questions

    1. Miesha Tate because she's the number 2 in the most established female division while being undersized. She doesn't need to cut 25-30 lbs to pick on smaller girls like Cyborg or Gadelha and she's more battle tested and shown more well-roundedness than JJ.

    2. Ronda Rousey because she's awesome and has revolutionized not just WMMA, but MMA.

    Miesha Tate. Well she did kinda give Rousey a fight both times. Also I don't think anyone i any female division other than Rousey is better than her.
    Zingano is really good too, but think Tate would win a rematch.

    Pannie Kianzad. Maybe because I'm swedish, but I have also always liked this girl after I saw her fight for the first time.

    Cyborg, because she completely destroys her opponents

    Favorite female fighter outside of Ronda would be Alltime: Hisae Watanabe because she was fucking awesome



    Right now it's Joanna Champion because she is fucking awesome

    Ronda's revolutionised MMA? Okay.

    I'd go with Joanna because she's shown a level of technical striking ability that mainstream MMA hasn't seen from women previously.

    who is the best? Arguments could be made for a lot of fighters.

    my personal favorites? Waterson, Ham, Grasso, Torres. no particular order.

    She's gotten a revolutionary amount of mainstream attention for MMA, also being the first woman on P4P lists and being the most dominant champion and showing the most spectacular 'mastery of one technique' in a long time.

    Best - Cris Cyborg. I don't like her, her juicing, her management, her decision making, the competition she's choosing to face at 145lbs or anything about her really. She's still the best though until somebody beats her (in MMA).

    Favorite: Ashlee Evans-Smith: American Hero.

    I don't think there are a lot of legit choices besides Cyborg, Miesha, Cat, Joanna, and Claudia TBH. The 125 and 105 divisions aren't really established enough for their top girls to make a case and JAG just got clearly beaten by Gadelha.

    None of those are very revolutionary. In fact, the last one is counter revolutionary.

    1. Pena, Polish chick, or Tate

    2. Pena because she is smoking hot imo.
