    Amanda Nunes at #2? She may be a better fighter, but I don't think she's fitter than Shevchenko

    Definitely has greater strength and doesn't seem to lack for cardio. I'd say that can be a metric for fitness when trying to deciding between two

    Really though, women's mma compared to something like gymnastics, I don't think any mma athletes are more fit than the 10 fittest gymnastic girls out there

    I dont think Amanda is a better fighter. Amanda was a better fighter the first fight. I and many others thought Valentina won the second fight. Amanda wanted no part of Valentina on the feet in the second fight. Remember, Valentina is moving up in weight to fight Amanda. Does Amanda have the better resume? Yes, no question. I think right now Valentina has passed her as a mixed Martial Artist. That's no slight to Amanda, she's great also.

    Who made this list?
    What was the criteria?
    Did they just look at these women and assign them a number?
    If she’s so fit, why wasn’t she on this list all the other years of her fighting career?
    Why aren’t other WMMA fighters on this list as well besides Nunes?

    Seems incredibly biased and outright objective.

    If Amanda didn't look so fat in her beer commercial

    they might have considered her

    at least they dim the lights

    Those lists are bs. You see random girls in local gyms look as good or even better.
