      You’d hold a majority decision loss over Davis’s head, 3+ years later? You don’t work for FICO, do you? She hasn’t lost decisively in nearly 5 years aside from Rousey and stays active against top competition. Suppose you could say the same for Kaufman, but in reality, they are only 7 points apart.

      Davis is due a small hit very soon. Should drop her below Tate, but not sure about Kaufman. UFC rankings agree with Davis over Kaufman and I don’t necessarily agree that Tate/Zingano have to be above Davis from a subjective standpoint.

    • Frank Sanders says:

      Is it possible to view the criteria for your ranking/points system?
      It obviously has some bugs.
      Alexis Davis at #2 ??
      Holly Holm at #8 ??
      I realize these things can be subjective, but you claim to use an objective model.
      Holly Holm has 1 quality win in MMA
      Alexis Davis is good, but has more losses and lost head to head vs. Sarah Kaufman.

    • David Street says:

      Legacy FC is saying the next big thing in Women’s Bantam weight is this Kyrgyz Republic kickboxer star, Valentina Shevchenko. They got her signed back to back fights with Jan Finney and Carina Damm. They keep saying she is 9-1 in MMA but I think most of that is AMMY or unsanctioned fights. most I see her rated as is 2-1.

    • David Street says:

      Conor McGregor hinted that famous Irish boxer Katie Taylor wants to fight MMA. Kyra Gracie Guimarães says she is gonna but has yet
      to do it, so I will not hold my breath. But wouldn’t it be wonderful to get these ladies!!

      Look at the FAQ

    • fj carriere says:

      What are the Big 20 that you use.
      What are the currently active organization that you use.

    • David Street says:

      Ashlee Evans-Smith was winning that fight and got careless..
      UFC need to double both their women MMA people (and their Men’s Heavyweights)

      Here is hoping the UFC signs in 2015 ..
      Pannie Kianzad, Agnieszka Niedźwiedź, DeAnna Bennett, Jessy Rose-Clark, Tonya Evinger, Gina Carano, Barb Honchak, Miriam Nakamoto, Cindy Dandois.

      I do not want neither: Cristiane Justino Cyborg, nor.. Carina “Barbie” Damm both I think will go back to banned substances II hear Damm’s brother been pushing for her.

      Also hear many are talking about UFC should sign WWE superstar Eve Torres Gracie she is lovely and can fight, Gracie trained pro wrestling star. I hope she does join CM Punk and come over to the real fight world.

    • jcs says:

      She was, before she lost.

    • Now that Ashlee Evans-Smith is in the UFC, I’d like to see her show up on the Bantamweight listing.

    • mike r says:

      Just because Pena beat down a straweight boxer with absolutely no ground game doesn’t qualify her for #6 no matter how much hype she got for winning the weakest Ultimate Fighter to date.
