  1. I wonder when the UFC will finally have a legit women’s featherweight division. This is the one division where Bellator has them beat by a mile.

    1. I think it’s too late ! They missed the opening ! Other than Felicia Spencer, Nunes (really a bantamweight), and Megan Anderson, and maybe 2 or 3 others, all the legit 145ers and legit up and comers that could fight at featherweight are already in Bellator or PFL, other than maybe Pamela Kay, the Invicta champ.

      1. Yeah; it’s amazing how many of the girls from the FW TUF season opted to drop to 135, most notably Macy and Pannie. They must have seen the writing on the way. What a wasted TUF season. I’m not sure if anyone from it is still in the UFC’s FW division. Of course, since the UFC doesn’t even post it’s top 15 fighters, or however many they now have, it’s hard to know.

        1. Julia Stoliarenko is still listed on the UFC roster at featherweight despite her last 3 fights since she lost on TUF to Leah Letson at the TUF Finale being outside the UFC. She’s gone 3-0 in those fights. Leah Letson, herself, is still listed on the roster at featherweight. She’s had to pull out of 1 or 2 fights in last several months due to injuries. I think one of the fights she dropped out of was at bantamweight.

    2. Bellator certainly has the depth. Megan should move their as well. It’d be interesting to see how she’d do against anyone not named Cyborg. I would think Julia could take her but I’m not sure about the rest. However, the UFC still has the #1 FW.
