    I can see the UFC giving JJ an immediate rematch should she lose to Gadehla. But if she wins, who's really next? PVZ would get brutalized, Moroz hype was derailed, and Esparza is on hiatus and she hasn't fought since she lost the belt. Only other person would be Markos. She gave Penne all she could handle and it was a close fight and she beat Daley easily. Now's the time to get her a fight with a name up the ladder. Esparza or Aguilar would be great options. Or even an official match with Namajunas should she win her next fight. But they really need to get her a fight soon.

    Give the next shot to Tecia should JJ win against Cadelha. Would like to see Randa fight once more before a title shot only because I don't want to see her get slaughtered by JJ.

    I would ultimately like to see Randa win a couple more times before JJ. I think she'll continue to improve with activity. She has some great work ethic and a winner's attitude.

    Torres was horrendous in her last fight against Hill. She needs to really redeem herself after that.

    She executed a good gameplan in my opinion. Mainly though, I want to see Tecia get the fight in order to buy Randa more time which is much needed.

    Problem being that the UFC isn't giving her anything. She could squeeze in 2 fights between now and Feb. UFC slacking with this more competitive women's division.

    If by title shot path, you mean a pathway straight to my bedroom, then yes I concur.

    All joking aside, Randa isn't far off at this point anyway. Like you said, one good win might even be enough right now if its the right one.

    Same. I'm a randa fan and it's obvious that she's growing between each fight. There is no need to rush her.

    He better have a spectacular entrance, otherwise all this build up will be wasted.

    NO she is not that good, Thug Rose put it on her so JJ and Claudia would kill her.

    If the gameplan was to put the audience to sleep and have an extremely unforgettable fight, then yeah, she did a hell of a job.

    Tecia did nothing in that fight that impressed me. She took a muay thai based fighter down over and over and was never able to land any signifcant GnP or come close to subs

    People can improve. Besides, fighting often on a show without the comfort of your own gym and teammates goes a long way.

    She won. She was already ranked ahead of Markos and with the depth of the women's divisions in general, a W will greatly outweigh a boring fight. But then again UFC rankings mean shit. I'm just saying I'd rather see Tecia get a shot before Markos.

    Now awaiting the arrival of HI.

    But they really should give Randa a fight. I'd love to see her fight again this year.

    i'm all for torres being sacraficed to jj if she beats claudia. since jj winning isn't a foregone conclusion and pvz with a fight coming up. the whole landscape could change quickly. i just want to see randa fight. if pvz wins, a fight between her and randa for number 1 isn't outrageous to me. just let torres get murked first, god she's annoying
