    The 2 names that come to mind are:

    Karolina Kowalkiewicz (who defeated Mizuki Inoue in Invicta)
    Joanna Jędrzejczyk (UFC Women's Strawweight Champion)

    Just look at Joanna's fight with Jessica Penne and Karolina's fight with Mizuki Inoue.

    Both are incredible fighters. They display remarkable striking and fighting ability beyond most the UFC's WMMA roster.
    If the UFC just imported the top WMMA fighters from Poland, would the current UFC roster stand a chance?

    Would Ronda be in trouble?
    Should we be watching Polish WMMA instead of UFC WMMA?
    Or should UFC WMMA fighters be flocking to Polish training camps?

    Seeing how eastern sexy women got more balls then most westerm men these days, so yes it could happen.

    Ksw has been big for a while, lots of potential boxing KB/MT judoka wrastlin womens are seeing mma and the wealth it can bring.

    JJ champ will bring lots of gilrs into mma.

    Uh, let's not get ahead of ourselves. JJ and Karolina Kowalkiewicz were the two best Women's fighters in Poland and they were both straw weights.

    Just taking a look at Tapology, there just aren't that many fighting at any weight division. The #3 is 4-0-0 and the #4 is 2-0-0.

    http://www.tapology.com/rankings/regional/1716-poland-womens-pound-for-pound

    Unless you have some source that shows a ton of secretly stashed woman fighters, then no, I doubt the next Rousey killer is in Poland at the moment. In a few years? Who knows.

    It has nothing to do with being polish.

    R3 has simply put in more time and she is likely peaking right now.

    Could Brazilian WMMA fighters clean up the UFC WMMA divisions?

    The 2 names that come to mind are:

    Amanda Nunes (who defeated Sara McMann in UFC)
    Cristiane Justino (Invicta Featherweight Champion)

    Just look at Cristiane's fight with Marloes Coenen and Amanda's fight with Sara McMann.

    Both are incredible fighters. They display remarkable striking and fighting ability beyond most the UFC's WMMA roster.

    If the UFC just imported the top WMMA fighters from Brazil, would the current UFC roster stand a chance?

    Would Ronda be in trouble?

    Or should UFC WMMA fighters be flocking to Brazilian training camps?

    No. I'm not Polish and have no interest in Poland.

    I'm just wondering about the vast difference in fighting ability in these 2 fighters and most of the UFC WMMA division.

    Nunes has 4 loses, let not pretend shes anything great just cause honda has no opponents.

    Cyborg is irrelevant till she makes weigh.

    Er... we haven't seen Karolina fight the likes of Esparza, Moroz, Penne, Namajunas, Torres, Markos etc. to see how she stacks up against them.

    And comparing them to BWs who walk around 20-30 lbs heavier is apples and oranges, like comparing male WWs with FWs.

    It was a sarcastic parody of the OP.

    Could have done the same with American fighters to be more obvious lol.

    Can't speak for Karolina.

    JJ is a lifetime striker, 6x Muay Thai champion, european champion, and has trained with Ernesto Hoost (dutch kick boxing legend). She competed in Muay Thai for 10 years starting as a teenager. In other words, her striking better be freaking Elite.

    JJ is basically the striking version of Rousey. A life time elite athlete who trained among the best in the world in her discipline and rose to the highest levels of the sport.

    It's also why you not only see women fighters say she has elite striking, but you have some of the male MMA fighters say that Joanna has the best striking in the UFC.

    Perfect gif for that moment. I laughed even though the joke itself was obnoxious.

    Well Brazilian WMMA has produced more known top fighters (Cyborg, Nunes, Porto, Gadelha, Souza and at a stretch Andrade, Lima, Faria etc) than Polish WMMA, so the parody version probably has more merit than the original :p

    Kowalkiewicz's skill is mediocre at best. Im not sure she would even break into Top 10.
