WMMAnalyze team just went around asking girls on facebook and twitter, if they had any plans on moving up for a shot at the UFC 115lbs weight class:
Michelle Waterson (@karatehottiemma) November 18, 2013
Key words. "At the moment" Michelle Waterson could have an impact the way Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson did at 135lbs. She is the current Invicta atomweight champ and consensus #1 atomweight. She has the is "hot" and can fight package that sells oh so well.Yeap yeap yeap
@ErikssonLau absolutely !!! Hope they do any ultimate fighter for 115— cassie (@cassierodish) November 18, 2013
I currently have her ranked as the #4 atomweight in the world
@ErikssonLau If given the opportunity, it would be a welcomed blessing!— Lacey Schuckman (@ladielacey) November 18, 2013
She is best known for losing a close split decision to Michelle Waterson, and is ranked #5 in the world
And some other fighters, who publicly stated their intentions
I got Haga at number 13, her game has improved substantially, so even though her record is absolute trash at straweweight, no count her out. Also, she's the girlfriend of Joachim Hansen
Tessa Simpson via her Facebook fanpage: "Just found a good reason to go back up to 115lbs!! Ha!" This was followed by her linking a story on UFC adding 115lbs.
Simpson made a very impressive return to MMA after a lengthy hiatus, taking out undefeated prospect Paulina Granados at Legacy Fighting Championship. Check out the fight
Amber Brown via speaking to her on Facebook was the only one with a different opinion: "No, I'm only focusing on getting into Invicta... I Love Invicta and what they have done and are doing for WMMA. Getting in there has been my goal since day 1."
The #10 atomweight is best known for going over to Japan and fighting to of there most seasoned fighters (losing to strawweight Emi Fujino and top 10 at the time atomweight, Ishikawa) Even though I think it's foolish to not move up to 115 even if it means giving up a weight disadvantage, Brown's decision to stay probably means others will do the same, not completely destroying Invicta's atomweight division.You can reach me via Twitter @ErikssonLau WMMAnalyze.Tumblr.com Facebook.com/WMMAnally
