UFC Odds - Women’s Bantamweight Rankings, September 2017

Amanda Nunes barely escaped a rematch with Valentina Shevchenko to remain the bantamweight champ. Though the fight could have easily gone the other way, Nunes did just enough to take a split decision and retain the title. The Brazilian recently stated that she’d take the rest of the year off, which gives the division approximately six months to sort itself out and produce another challenger.

UFC Odds & Ends

Former bantamweight champion Holly Holm has been rumored to be discussing moving up to featherweight for another title challenge, this time against mauler Cris “Cyborg” Justino. If that fight ever gets booked, I’d estimate Holm to open as at least a +400 underdog. Which is actually pretty impressive, considering that Cyborg’s opponents are regularly around +1000.

Fighter to Watch

Ketlen Vieira pulled off a slick submission win against the well-regarded Sara McMann to bring her record to a perfect 7-0. Because the division is so thin up top, the win automatically puts her in the title mix - and vaults her four spots up the rankings.

The Future of Bantamweight

It remains to be seen how this division will fare without Rousey. Holm is still a star but will be fighting at featherweight. Miesha Tate, one of the class’s other stars, has recently retired. Nunes presents an evolution of women’s MMA, but she needs a run of devastating knockouts to capture attention. This is an interesting time, especially with flyweight and featherweight additions seemingly coming soon.
