    stuff is crazy in the UFC women’s 135-pound division. The UFC title has had more owners than a 1993 Ford Escort. The rankings change practically by the hour. It’s hard to even have a conversation about who the best female bantamweight in the world might be. All you can say is who’s the best this weekend.

    ...

    It was a clear and convincing victory for Shevchenko. What’s far less clear is what it means for the state of the division, which is still missing its most marketable draw as it flails around in search of stability and identity.

    ...

    And now Shevchenko is the Sherdog favorite to beat Nunes...

    Valentina Shevchenko is the new Sherdog favorite? I didn't get the memo, I guess. I think I'd still favor Amanda Nunes.

    Then again, I'm on a hot streak for picking fights wrong in that division (picked Rousey over Holm, picked Holm over Tate, picked Tate over Nunes... ).

    I for one, am loving the insanity that is the women's bantamweight division. Surprises are fun.

    Meh, doesn't really matter. Nunes will probably retain for a couple of fights, but it's basically gonna be a hot potato division for the foreseeable future.

    Ronda destroyed cans like no one before her.Her dominance invited talent and pushed the competition to rise up to the challenge.We can hate her all we want,but she did geat things for women's MMA.

    Ronda, Cat, Miesha and Holly have all fought 145. They should change the division to 145 and let Cyborg come in and become a dominant champion.

    The division is better than ever right now. It's going through that LHW phase which was one of the most fun times for MMA fans.

    She would have beat her in their first fight if it was five rounds. No doubt about it.

    They all need more trt muscle mass speed power and talent.

    They need to be men, in other words.

    Judging by the holes that every one of the 135ers have in their game, we won't see a dominant champ for some time in this division.

    I find it annoying. Every time I become a fan of someone, they lose.

    But I'm starting to accept it. At least it leads to a larger number of possible interesting match ups, and we're pushed to get to know more fighters' styles than previously.

    What i said was,that ronda dominated in an era of cans,forcing the division to evolve and improve,so that today we have a legitimate top5-6.That doesn't mean there are no more cans in WBW.There are cans in LW and WW and in every other division.

    Some people should be forced to pass an IQ test,before they are allowed internet priviledges.
    Fucking idiot...

    aw ur so mad? "Evolve and improve", nah. The top 5-6 are still relatively as good as the former top 5-6. Amanda nunes has lost to multiple opponents that Ronda has wrecked. Tate was beat by Ronda twice. Valentina lost to opponents Ronda beat. Holm lost to Tate and Valentina. Sorry, if anyone needs to pass the idiot test it's you.


    idiot.

    Amanda fought at 145 as well
    She and Rousey both finished Julia Budd in under a minute back in Strikeforce and she's the current #2 145lb woman

    These girls are all making 135 just to avoid Cyborg

    It's crazy, their fighting and winning, losing, fighting and winning and fighting and my head is spinning and I'm freaking out.

    I mean there was a champ now there is another one and they fight and one loses and the other wins and it's crazy and I can't figure it out.

    It's crazy, one wins, one loses and it's unpredictable and exciting but crazy and I'm going crazy right now thinking about it because it's crazy.

    Who is going to win next? I'm so excited I pissed myself it's crazy.

    It's crazy dang it.
