The Beaten Path: 10 Female BW and SW Prospects the UFC Should Sign
Felipe Dana

The finish line has been crossed. The "Prospects the UFC Should Sign" series is coming to a close. We left off with the flyweights, but now it's time for a whole new gender.

The women of MMA have attained more spotlight recently due to their inclusion in the UFC. Stars like Ronda Rousey have carved a path for the 135ers, and the 115ers are quick to follow into the company thanks to The Ultimate Fighter 20.

The women's roster of the UFC could use some extra faces at this point, as depth is the key to creating a more interesting division. There are plenty of women who can fit the bill, despite WMMA being in sort of a post-embryonic stage.

So, we picked out five bantamweights and five strawweights whom the UFC needs to snag to cushion its new divisions. Here are those 10 ladies, with the prospect label being a little more lax in this countdown.


Note: This is the first year that female fighters have been included in the series, so there is no history to cover in this installment.
