Pound For Pound


1) “The Lioness” Amanda Nunes (18-4)

Birthday: May 30, 1988

Height: 5’8

Weight (lbs.): 135/145

Currently fighting with: UFC

Last 5 fights:

– vs. Holly Holm – Win via TKO (head kick and strikes) – UFC 239 – July 6, 2019

– vs. Cris Cyborg – Win via KO (punches) – UFC 232 – December 29, 2018

– vs. Raquel Pennington – Win via TKO (strikes) – UFC 224 – May 12, 2018

– vs. Valentina Shevchenko – Win via decision (split) – UFC 215 – September 9, 2017

– vs. Ronda Rousey – Win via TKO (strikes) – UFC 207 – December 30, 2016

Next scheduled appearance:

– Unknown

Comment: Nunes knocked out Holly Holm in four minutes last month, defending the bantamweight title for the fourth time. It’s unlikely we see her defend the featherweight title soon since without Cyborg around, there’s no true top contender in the picture (even the UFC’s own rankings skip the 145 division). This means it’s safe to expect another bantamweight championship fight before the end of the year with the challenger being named either Germaine De Randamie or Ketlet Vieira.



2) Cris “Cyborg” Justino (21-2, 1 NC)

Height: 5’8

Weight (lbs.): 145

Birthday: July 9, 1985

Currently Fighting With: Free Agent

Last 5 fights:

– vs. Felicia Spencer – Win via decision (unanimous) – UFC 230 – July 27, 2019

– vs. Amanda Nunes – Loss via KO (punches) – UFC 232 – December 29, 2018

– vs. Yana Kunitskaya – Win via TKO (strikes) – UFC 222 – March 3, 2018

– vs. Holly Holm – Win via decision (unanimous) – UFC 219 – December 30, 2017

– vs. Tonya Evinger – Win via TKO (strikes) – UFC 214 – July 29, 2017

Next scheduled appearance:

– Unknown

Comment: Cyborg is reportedly a free agent or soon will be after UFC president Dana White said they would forego three months of exclusive negotiating that would have taken place. Cyborg’s UFC deal reached its final fight when she beat Felicia Spencer last month. There’s too much unfortunate dismay between Cyborg and White, so she’ll become the top free agent in the sport. She has already said she’ll sign with a new promotion within 30 days and until then, the exact place will remain publicly unknown.



3) Valentina Shevchenko (18-3)

Height: 5’5

Weight (lbs.): 125

Birthday: March 7, 1988

Currently Fighting With: UFC

Last 5 fights:

– vs. Liz Carmouche – Win via decision (unanimous) – UFC on ESPN+ – August 10, 2019

– vs. Jessica Eye – Win via KO (head kick) – UFC 238 – June 8, 2019

– vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk – Win via decision (unanimous) – UFC 231 – December 8, 2018

– vs. Priscila Cachoeira – Win via submission (rear naked choke) – UFC Fight Night – February 3, 2018

– vs. Amanda Nunes – Loss via decision (split) – UFC 215 – September 9, 2017

Next scheduled appearance:

– Unknown

Comment: Shevchenko easily secured a win Saturday, defending the flyweight championship for the second time since June. While No one at flyweight looks to be a serious threat right now, Shevchenko is only looking for a third fight with reigning featherweight and bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes after she stops all 125 comers.



4) Jessica Andrade (20-6)

Height: 5’2

Weight (lbs.): 115

Comment: Andrade is set to make her first title defense later this month in China against (19-1) Weili Zhang.

Weight (lbs.): 115

Currently Fighting With: UFC

Last 5 fights:

– vs. Valentina Shevchenko – Loss via decision (unanimous) – UFC 231 – December 8, 2018

– vs. Jessica Andrade – Win via decision (unanimous) – UFC 211 – May 13, 2017

Next scheduled appearance:

– vs. Michelle Waterson – UFC on ESPN+ – October 12, 2019

Comment: Joanna will look to build on her strawweight win last summer over Tecia Torres when she fights Michelle Waterson later this year. A win could push her back into a title fight considering she is the last person to beat current champ Jessica Andrade in 2017.
