5 Best Female Fighters In UFC History
- The baddest women on the planet!
#4 Joanna Jędrzejczyk (15-3)
The former Women’s Strawweight Champion was the best pound-for-pound female fight during her peak. Even though Joanna has lost 3 of her last four fights, it does not undermine her status as one of the greatest female mixed martial artists in the UFC’s history.
Her track record speaks for itself. She became the first Polish as well as the first European Women’s Champion in UFC when she won the Strawweight title against Carla Esparza in 2015. She successfully defended the title five times in dominant performances against the top contenders of her division.
Her title defences were absolute striking clinics. The Polish brawler has notched up various records, some of which include the most leg kicks in a fight and the highest significant striking differential in a UFC title fight to her name.
She eventually lost both the title and subsequent rematch to Rose Namajunas before going to the 115 lb division, where she lost to Shevchenko in a title fight.
There was a time when the fans believed Joanna could indeed back up her claims of retiring undefeated but it’s a rarely accomplished feat in MMA. It gets tougher when you get obsessed with the tag of being undefeated and the next entrant on this list is a prime example…
