    She's been inactive for longer than he has, but somehow they still have her ranked #1 and he's been erased from the LW rankings.

    Also they got Dominick Cruz still ranked, wtf??

    Because then the WMMA division will only have like 5 ranked fighters on the list?

    If UFC were to rank LWs up to #50 that #50 would be about equal in talent level as the #5 Womens BW.

    Because TJ Grant doesn't try to stay relevant with stupid non beefs and scripted shit talk.

    Zingano's actually cleared to fight (or at least close to it). TJ Grant might not even fight again.

    Because they're going to rush Cat to a titleshot if they don't sign Holly or Cyborg. She's the only interesting fight left.

    Also noticed they now got Machida ranked ahead of Belfort.... I mean I like Machida and I dont mind him getting a title shot with the circumstances, but in what parallel universe is Machida's short MW run more accomplished than Vitor's?

    And Travis Browne just got his ass handed to him and barely put up a fight, yet he didn't lose a single spot in the ranking and is still #3. Only difference is Werdum moved into 1 and JDS dropped to 2.

    I know we all love conspiracy theories but yeah, this. Zingano has been cleared to fight, TJ Grant is still trying to do light training.

    One of them is in a tidal pool and the other is in the deepest parts of the ocean surrounded by great whites, orcas and sperm whales.

    Because TG Grant is not a draw. He will never get his Title shot that he earned...so now hes unranked to put a stamp on it.

    it makes me wonder how wmma is going to hang on if cat doesn't beat ronda when they do actually fight. we've all seen it now and the majority of fight fans only want to see the premiere fighters for the most part. the only time its talked about here is when there is a gimmick fight potentially looming (ronda vs gina) and it makes me wonder if the belt doesn't change hands soon or if ronda decided to retire if the woman's division could weather it.
    prediction... if ronda retires with the belt the ufc cuts its losses and invicta absorbs all notable female fighters in the ufc and discards the stepping stones due to lack of divisional depth and poor fanbase.

    Because WMMA is a make believe sport.
