    Did anyone else notice the changing of the guard that took place in these divisions over the year. Both the champion and 2/3 contenders were replaced over the course of 2016.

    At WBW
    Nunes>Rousey
    Pennington>Tate
    Pena>Zingano
    Shevchenko>Holm

    At WW
    Woodley>Lawler
    Thompson>MacDonald/Hendricks
    Maia>Condit

    Shows the evolution of the game. Did this happen in any other divisions?

    Yea and Pena might be keeping the hot potato going.

    Valentina is champion level prospect though so that's no easy task.
