  1. I certainly think WMMARankings flyweight rankings make a lot more sense than the UFC’s, even if they are a little UFC-centric for my tastes. Have no idea how they have Lauren and Sijara ranked above Katlyn when she defeated them both and the only fighter she’s lost to is Liz Carmouche who in turn technically defeated #1 ranked Shevchenko, admittedly a long time ago.

    1. The flyweight rankings are definitely complicated right now! Former bantamweights are really taking over and it is going to be an interesting dynamic over the next few months seeing how bouts play out and who gets matched up with who!

      Are there any matches in the division you think the UFC needs to make?
