    Great. Do you think she should now be ranked #1 at atomweight (with her 2nd win over Frey)?

    has she ever not been #1 on merit? she's never lost below 115. Ham's in RIZIN now, Miyuu is resurgent, there's a lot going on, lots of good matchups

    Not a bad fight but once Gooch should win no doubt.

    Atleast if he's not gonna be fighting the div's elite its good to see him fighting so often, he's basically on every Rizin show.

    I remember some debate leading up to Hamasaki vs. Frey 2. Maybe that was @leto1776 .

    I'd give her the #1 ranking now, based on strength of schedule. Ham's fallen behind due to breaking her arm on Frey's head and having to take extended time off between fights to recover.

    In other news, there used to be a highlight video from IQ Wrestler called "Shooto Savior", before Horiguchi came to the UFC. Looks like youtube took it down. Wtf!

    Good to see Jared Brooks has a new home.

    Seems like it should be easy wins for Scoggins/Henry/Brooks.
