Popular UFC strawweight Felice Herrig already took issue with Mackenzie Dern’s UFC 224 missed weight. Now, she’s taking issue with Dern’s sudden appearance in the UFC top 15 too.
Taking to her Instagram, Felice went on an over 200 word rant on the topic.
Check it out:
I’m going to weigh in on the @ufc #strawweight rankings with at least 7.5lbs of factual perspective:
1- For the most part 1-5 are pretty accurate across all weight divisions, but after that the rankings are a crap shoot.
2- These days hype trains seem to be gifted rankings over actually having to fight to the top.
3- #McenzieDern misses weight by 7.5 pounds, which makes her closer to a #Flyweight than strawweight. She beats an unranked fighter and takes @angieoverkill well earned #15 spot when her only actual win in the ufc as a #straweight was to #Ashleyyoder. McEnzie won by a very close split decision, while Angela won unanimously. So why does Angela get bumped?? 4- Justine Kish isn’t even in the top 15, although she beat #14 #NinaAnsaroff unanimously and #11 #RandaMarkos. Justine did move up to Flyweight but so did #calderwood. So why is Calderwood even in the rankings anymore?
5- If #waterson is #7 & I’m #8 then 9,10 & 11 are all out of order…
6- I beat #Grasso unanimous decision , I beat #casey split. Waterson beats casey split decision. Casey finishes Markos, while Grasso takes her to split. So the rankings should actually be:
Even if Dern made weigh there is no factual reasoning as to why or how she could take Angela’s spot other than a massive glitch in the matrix.
