Women’s MMA Pound-for-Pound Rankings December 2020 Update: Amanda Nunes is clearly the greatest woman MMA champion we’ve ever seen. Valentina Shevchenko is a close second and as the naturally smaller woman, she’s taken the GOAT the distance twice and even pulled of a somewhat controversial split decision in their last encounter back in 2017. Until a trilogy comes into play, up next for the Champ-Champ Nunes is Megan Anderson (postponed due to “personal matters”) while “The Bullet” is looking forward to a showdown with the dangerous Jessica Andrade or a hopefully “Lucky” Lauren Murphy.

Weili Zhang hasn’t fought since her epic battle with the former champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk back in March. While some believe Joanna “Champion” won that bout, it was definitely close enough to warrant a rematch. Rose Namajunas will be looking to challenge Zhang soon enough, however rumblings of a potential Zhang-Shevchenko matchup have recently begun to surface.

Outside of the UFC, Cristiane Justino aka Cris Cyborg, has been busy with her first submission victory of her career. Her rear-naked choke on Arlene Blencowe came in the second round of her Bellator debut and won her yet another world title. In January of 2020, she finished Julia Budd with punches and in the previous July won a decision against Felicia Spencer, a woman who just survived her bout with Amanda Nunes. Expect more of the same from Cyborg in 2021, finishing everyone outside of the UFC, and Amanda Nunes, with aplomb.
