In WWE, October 28th, 2018 saw the first-ever All Women's Pay-Per-View. It turned out to be a success, but the truth is that WWE has been behind when it's come to elevating the status of women.

Even MMA, if you compare it to sports like Tennis, caught up quite late when it came to women headlining shows and becoming featured stars. It started off in Strikeforce, where Cris Cyborg vs Gina Carano became the first women's main event of a major MMA show.

That was in 2009, and since then, Women's MMA has come a long way. We've seen the rise and fall of Ronda Rousey, the undisputed box office champion of women's MMA. She broke barriers and shattered ceilings of all kinds.

From Dana White stating that "Women will never be in the UFC", we've now seen multiple PPVs and even Fight Nights headlined by women. The evolution of the sport has seen an impressive crop of women pop up, and as the years go, the talent in each division is only going to grow stronger.

While it's hard to imagine UFC booking an all-women's event, it's not out of the realm of possibility. If it's marketable, then it's doable in the eyes of the officials. In this article, we dream book 5 fights for an all-women's UFC card!

#5 Joanna Jędrzejczyk vs Tatiana Suarez

Joanna Jędrzejczyk had an attempt at the UFC Flyweight Championship but ultimately fell short to Valentina Shevchenko. Either way, the dream fight delivered, and despite the fact that Joanna has 3 losses since November 2017, don't let that fool you. She's as vicious as ever, and a great opponent for her would be the up-and-coming Tatiana Suarez.

Suarez is an absolute beast in the octagon, finishing five of her seven victories, with no defeats to her record yet. It would be a dream match and a big test for Suarez and Joanna as well, who needs to show where she's at after her recent run.
