      I thought Aguilar’s claim to fame was beating Fujii?

      Aguilar has likely gotten fortunate more than once on the cards… sadly the system can’t see that.

    • David Street says:

      Jessica Aguilar’s claim to fame was that she had beat Carla Esparza. Now that Joanna Jędrzejczyk is the champion. If you still have Jessica as #1 after this than we will all give up on you.

      Jessica Aguilar is welcome to try to beat Jędrzejczyk but I do not see it happening.

    • David Street says:

      To look forward too: Tiffany Van Soest wants to fight straw MMA she is a great Lion Fight Muay Thai fighter by the end of 2016 she will be on this list I am betting. Bet the long game… I have yet to see Jemyma Betrian “The Golden Girl” fight MMA she was 35-2-1 in Kick-Boxing, and now 2-0 in MMA, the kickboxers are doing well, except for Justine Kish who is in the UFC but is plagued with injuries and losing weight problems.

      Why are the Women kickboxers doing better than the women BJJ fighters or is it just me?

    • David Street says:

      Maryna Moroz vs. Joanne Calderwood in the UFC Poland fight. I wax looking forward to the Maryna Moroz vs. Dora Perjes in XFC-i,That fight seemed more equal, Joanne is the big favorite. But they also have on the same card Claudia Gadelha vs. Aisling Daly, this match may be more interesting Daly goes up and down she has won some major matches so I think this one will depend on her having her head in the game because Gadelha always has her head right.

    • David Street says:

      note: DeAnna Bennett (6-0) vs Lynn Alvarez (6-3)is no longer DeAnna’s straw weight move her new opponent is up-in-comer Norma Rueda Center (3-1.

    • mike ripple says:

      Get Randa Markos a fight, Sean Shelby. The fans love her and want to see her in the Octagon. She and Thug Rose were my favorites on TUF 20!!

    • mike ripple says:

      This shit with aguilar being number one has to be reevaluated soon. Hell, Angela Magana beat her clean once and was verbally signalling the ref on the second go round that was misconstrued as a verbal abdication by Magana. That happened a while ago and so did the Aguilar/Esparza decision. Carla has evolved by lightyears and Aguilar has not. She needs to come and fight Esparza or go to the back of the line. Don’t be afraid homie!! Aguilar is not by any stretch the best strawweight!!!

    • David Street says:

      now we have DeAnna Bennett (6-0) vs Lynn Alvarez (6-3)in a strawweight battle, What happened DeAnna Bennett was expected to move to Bantam not Straw? She was expected to be the next big thing in Bantam. All this movement to straw… will the strawweight division ever settle down so we can get a clear read? Lyn Alvarez is no longer even on your top 30, how are you gonna rate DeAnna if she wins?

    • David Street says:

      Jessica Rakoczy and Valérie Létourneau, both move to strawweight? Randa Markos often is not reconized as Canadain as often given the flag of Iran by her name, but now it will be an issue on who is the best Canadian at strawweight.
