    UFC 196 - beats Schevchenko by UD
    UFC 200 - Dethrones Meisha brutally to win the title
    UFC 207 - defending against Rousey in the main event of another huge card

    If she wins against Ronda, she'll have beaten three top 5 fighters, won the title, defended it, and beat the WMMA GOAT all in a calendar year. Pretty impressive if you ask me.

    I already said Nunes if FOTY with a win in an older thread.

    So if this is an original thought on your part TS then good shit.

    Was Schevchenko top 5 when she beat her? That seems weird.

    Ronda's body of work is too weak to be GOAT female MMA fighter.

    Ronda is the GOAT thus far but that doesn't mean much because WMMA is still so young in the UFC.

    I had to laugh when Rogan called her a "once ever" athlete. She won a bronze medal in the Olympics (which, as we know, is 3rd place) and she dominated a brand new division for 2 years. There are women who have won upwards of 7-8 gold medals in sports that have been around for hundreds and hundreds of years and have sky-high competition levels, and we were supposed to buy Ronda a "once ever" athlete? Shit man

    Can WMMA just go away already? It's pathetic.

    No, Ronda blowing through everyone in 15 seconds is far more impressive. Including multiple girls Nunes lost to

    I think Ronda had the Mike Tyson effect, had everyone super intimidated. No one is scared of her now. Her aura is crushed. I doubt she bounces back into domination. I think it's highly possible her last fight will be on the 30th. But I also thought Aldo was going to destroy Connie.

    UFC still would sweep her under the rug.

    Beating Ronda and Miesha would arguably be beating the best other 2 BWs ever (plus Shevchenko might be up there too, though not as proven yet), so yes.
