    smart move to make local fighters like Davis and McMann looks good …

    “Sexton (13-2) is on a three-fight win streak and is also considered one of the best female bantamweights in the world.”

    FALSE!! Sexton, as Gaff, is a natural flyweight and that’s the category where she was fighting before entering in the UFC …
    they have to pad Davis/McMann records making them fighting top non-american flyweights …

    Would prefer to see Rosi at her natural weight class. That said this will be all Rosi. This is an upset waiting to happen. WAR ROSI!!!!
