    Imo it's Valentina, Amanda nunes and weili Zhang.... That's it.

    All the rest should be on Pre lims and fights cards/lower cards


    Then I wouldn't mind wmma so much.

    JJ gave Zhang the fight of her life, she's still up there. And Rose hasn't done anything to not warrant ppv. But not much else other than that. There's that one that beat the ever loving shit out of Carla Esparza and some other fighters, but she's getting injured over and over again.

    I think Dern has earned her spot. Joanna, rose, Weili, Torres, Andrade..just off the top of my head. Weili should be the main event in any cars she’s on, she’s clearly entertaining as fuck. Obviously nunes and Valentina. Pretty crazy to not include jj, considering she’s likely apart of FOTY

    Andrade. True finishing power and brings it every fight. Lost to Zhang, and Rose, but is a tough fight for anyone.

    And then you wake up in the morning with Funyun and Taco Bell breath, the alcohol has worn off, you have a throbbing headache... look over to the mass of flesh breathing out of its mouth next to you and see...

    ...and think to yourself, “heck.. I’ve had worse” and you roll back to bed.

    Well, aside from the champions and former contenders and champs, fighters who always bring excitement to the ring should be on ppv cards too, most of the time. Maybe she lacks skill compared to the higher ranked fighters, but if she has an entertaining style that keeps the eyes on screen, wouldn't that be good enough for ppl to watch her?

    Most of the exciting wmma fights I seem to remember all involve Joanna whether she won or lost. Valentina is impressive in many ways. Nunes is in there by credentials. Sprinkle in Thug Rose, Dern, and Suarez and thats all I could imagine.

    The only stipulation with these 6 being the only main card worthy is somebody has to fight Claudia every card or two.

    Why is it more upsetting for you to have women on a PPV card than seeing someone on there like Greg Hardy, or Gian Villante? Those guys suck.

    Fucking Juan Adams was on a main ppv card this year.

    There's probably 100 WMMA fighters I'd pay to see before Juan Adams.
