I'm not going to sugarcoat my words here.  The consensus rankings for female fighters on this website is a complete joke.  In support of Women's MMA, can we at least get some proper rankings?

Some things I noticed:
-Gina Carano is still ranked.  >_>  These are CURRENT rankings, and Gina Carano's in the top ten and hasn't fought in three years... c'mon guys.
-Tara LaRosa?  Easily a top five women's fighter.  Remove her robbery loss to Roxy, and she has the most impressive win streak out of any female in the sport.
-"Attractive fighters" are being overrated.  Felice Herrig and Marianna Kheyfets most notably.  Ferrig is top 20 on here, but the four people she lost to are not.  An exaggeration of course, but c'mon.
-Someone with no professional fights (Jessica Branco) is ranked #52?
-Kim Couture is #51 with seven pro losses to her three wins?  And half of them aren't ranked above her?
-Jessica Aguilar is ranked freakishly high for some reason.  Top ten is really pushing it.
-Ayaka Hamasaki, Seo Hee Ham, Katja Kankaanpaa?  All easy top 20 fighters that haven't even broken top 60 yet for some reason.

But yeah, that was just a few things I've noticed.  I've been following women's MMA for a while now, so feel free to make inquiries or look through my own ranking list for ideas.

wow 101 entries, thats dedication.

i dont like ranking people till i see them fight, thus far (and hopefully its changing) womens mma just dosnt get the exposure for most of us to be as informed as you clearly are.

I think the atractive ones are getting over ranked because theyre the ones getting put on tv/posters etc, i imagine theres a lot of members with only 5 in this ranking.

@wilflet I agree, the only female mma fighters you see are the ones who will get the target demo watching them, young males therefore atractive women,  having said that i'm not a huge fan of female mma, reason for that is most of the fights i have seen in female mma seem to be so one sided that they hold no interest for me, now if someone can challenge RR in strikeforce, & by that i mean keep their arm attached, that might interest me. yes i know i have a PED suspended fighter on my list.

one sided high profile bouts with champions well above the rest of the division arnt a female only thing.
anderson silva (untill sonnen at least)
jones (and increasingly so as he runs out of challengers)
same for aldo.

all look as untouchable as rousey, maybe more so. weve seen holes in her stand up.

rin nakai actualy has a fight we are picking. not sure if we will see it though. can't put cyborg on the list b/c her biggest win i really can't say was legit over carano imho. sara McMann is headlining Invicta FC 2 vs the queen of spades (SB) plus i will put coenen where gurgel is when i rerank and put gurgel 10th. not sure when zoila is going to fight again.
