    Since it's 2021 and there still aren't any official rankings for this division on the UFC website, I have no idea. Off the top of my head

    Nunes
    Spencer
    Anderson
    That afro-french chick

    Who else? Not including girls hopping up from 135 (with the exception of Nunes of course).

    Danielle Wolf made her debut in the contender series with a lackluster decision that most people thought she lost and they signed her. They are THAT desperate

    Fought in 135 her last fight against the chick that stole the masks during the pandemic. I don't think she will fight at 145 again

    Hopefully Isabella Mir someday. She's a big woman and I'm not sure she'd be able to make bantamweight and be healthy about it. She's 5'10.

    If I was a BW female I'd bulk up to 145 asap. I can eat Popeye's all day, no need to cut weight, and I automatically get ranked in the top 5. High fives all around.

    Under 10. Like Chael said, you only need to raise your hand for a title shot at womens featherweight

    Megan may be the best but she hasn't lost 43 times yet.

    I agree Wolf wasn't great on the contenders but it was her first MMA fight. She has good background and can't get fights in smaller orgs due to that experience. Personally I think she will get better quickly.

    Yeh, that's Norma Dumont, who is fighting Malecki next at BW. No reason for her to go back up to FW.

    The mask stealing chick is Evans-Smith.

    Man, female FW is such a crap division haha.

    You are reading it wrong.

    It reads 11-4 (overall record) and 3-2 (UFC record)

    Not 11-43-2

    To be fair Norma missed weight at 135. Turns out she is a true Featherweight that has extreme difficulty making 135.

    Amanda Nunes (2-0)
    Megan Anderson (3-2)
    Leah Letson (1-0)
    Felicia Spencer (2-2)
    Zarah Fairn Dos Santos (0-2)
    Danyelle Wolf (0-0)

    This is literally everybody and their UFC records in the weight class. It’s basically just a way to promote Nunes as a double champ, the division is pointless.

    Norma Dumont, she tried to move down to 135lbs, but missed weight because her ass is too big

    I know, but it reads as 11-43-2 with the unfortunate formatting doesn't it?

    It's only there cause Cyborg couldn't make 135 and she is/was one of the biggest PPV draws in MMA at a time only a handful of fighters could sell PPV's. So it's existence makes sense but making it a real division with a roster and fighters climbing up the division ladder doesn't. WMMA was at it's most popular when it was one division people with 3 people complain alot feel as if it's taking away from cards rather than helping them. A fourth serious WMMA division would make issue worse. Why do that when you could sign people specifically for title fights or have 135'ers who want to fight for title gain weight?

    Cyborg might be gone but it still doesn't make sense to officially delete any division(I believe Dana never was going to perma kill 125) cause you have a lot of events and another division means more championship fights to go around.

    Isn't it crazy how Nunes is the most serious champ champ despite winning the belt of a division that doesn't really exist?
