    Someone who is superior in one aspect of the sport to Valentina. Suarez is a superior wrestler but is way behind in other aspects, so no. Dern is way ahead in bjj but seems headed for atomweight.

    I would have loved to have seen pre-enhanced Joanna make a real move up to 125, rather than the short-notice title fight hastily arranged to help the UFC recover from the Nicco debacle.

    What kind of atom, enriched uranium? She fights at 115, where she literally missed weight three times in six fights. Having her move to Valentina's division would actually make a lot of sense. Val would be the favorite, but that would be one of the few intriguing fight in that whole division.

    It's a joke, the weight not the matchup.

    The bigger question is, who cares?

    Really? Bold. While I like McFarlane, her level of competition has not prepared her sufficiently, IMO, and I do not really see that changing.

    Who is Dern?

    I think Joanna never stood a chance against Valentina.
    Valentina has beat her like 4 times in Muay Thai which is the biggest Joanna strength, in the transition Valentina got way better grappling techniques while Joanna never developed that department. That's why Valentina completely dominated her everywhere in their UFC fight.

    Wow, you really do only care about Valentina... Mackenzie Dern, 7-0, BJJ world champion, fights this weekend, made lots of headlines because of her accent, missing weight at 115 and misleading Instagram thirst traps.

    I think this girl could be the best challenger at 125lbs, she's been knocking bitches out! (Shevchenko still would outclass her though)

    This year she KO'd a girl at UFC 237, then destroyed Alexis Davis at UFC 239 and now is going to fight Jessica Eye at UFC 245 (she probably would destroy or KO Eye too.)

    I'll see how Weili does against Joanna, she could be the one.

    It seems like the 3 champs are a level above everyone else at the moment

    I think Valentina outpoints Amanda if they fight again. I thought she won the second fight but it was garbage and nobody did anything
