One of the biggest problems the UFC are facing at the moment is the fact that outside of Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey, there aren’t too many big stars on their roster. However, while they may be short of big names, the current UFC roster is probably as talent heavy as any UFC roster has ever been.

The effects of having such a talent stacked roster is having talent stacked divisions. While we are all excited about Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor in the Featherweight division and the Lawler – Condit fight in the Welterweight division, there are plenty of other divisions that are just as exciting as the above two. We rank all 10 UFC divisions (8 male divisions and 2 female) below: - 

#10 Women's Strawweights

Slide 10 / 10
Joanna is one fight away from clearing a very thin division

It’s a bit telling that the champion of the women’s Straw weight division, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, needs just one more win to effectively clear out her division. The only person on the current roster worth her time is Claudia Gadelha.

Jessica Aguilar is a legend but her only UFC fight was a loss earlier this month to Gadelha. Carla Esparza was so easily dominated by Joanna that watching them fight again is almost not worth it. The same goes for Jessica Penne who, despite proving she is as tough as nails, barley hurt Joanna.

Outside of these 5 women there isn’t much to say about the straw weights. Perhaps it’s a bit harsh for them to be included on this list given how new the division is. It will take time to build. Joanna is a star but beyond her there isn’t much.
