Weekly Women’s MMA Review – 2/5

Posted: February 2, 2012 in Uncategorized

“Women’s MMA Today” gets you caught up on the week that was and the week that will be in women’s MMA.


The Unified Women’s MMA Rankings for February have been released and with her biggest victory to date over Hitomi Akano, Sara McMann (pictured) climbs up the rankings to number 5 in the Bantamweight division.  Also, due to her suspension from the CSAC for a positive steroid test, Cris Cyborg has been removed from the #1 ranking position at Featherweight, and with the fight result being changed to a no contest, former 2nd ranked Hiroko Yamanaka now takes over the top spot.  To see these and the rest of the Unified Rankings, click here.
