Top five female MMA Fighters to look out for in 2018:

1)Cris Cyborg

The Brazilian woman has caused fear into the heart of the women she fights. She is a terrifying presence in the octagon and has been undefeated in 13 years. MMA Record: 

2) Amanda Nunes

Another Brazilian woman makes the list for her dominating display and dismantling of former champions Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey. Both in the very first round. MMA Record:

3) Rose Namajunas

A fighter who defies the current ethos of the fighting game of being brash and talking trash. Her mellow and subdued display has earned her a lot of respect and she also stopped a dominant champion in Joanna Jędrzejczyk to win the UFC Strawweight Title.

4) Joanna Jędrzejczyk

Even though she lost her last fight, the Polish fighter makes the list for her absolute overwhelming style of fighting and relentless self-believe in herself. She rematches with Rose in UFC 223.

5) Valentina Shevchenko

The Krygystan fighter has earned plaudits from experts all around for her complete fighting ability, i.e on feet and on the ground. She is most likely to become the UFC Flyweight Champion in 2018.

Meanwhile, Brian Ortega remains unbeaten and becomes the first man to stop Frankie Edgar in UFC 222. Ortega was a late replacement for UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway and with this win will be getting the next crack at the title.

Also, Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov will be having a showdown at last as they face each other for the UFC Lightweight Title in UFC 223 in April.

Finally, Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold trade jabs online with the latter saying if he lost to the former again he will also retire with the English Fighter. Bisping's last fight will be last in his career.
