  1. I’m with Riggs on Weili vs. anybody. While I definitely want to see Weili vs. Rose the most, JJ is a close second and Tatiana, a third. The problem with all of them is that I don’t see any of them contending in the near future, certainly not this year. Rose has beene averaging a fight/year the past 3 years. Given her nose injury and surgery, and her proposed opponent, I would be surprised if we would see such a fight much before summer 2020. Are you good on not seeing Weili compete until then? I’m not. JJ indicated earlier that she doesn’t anticipate competing until next year, ideally for the title, but did not provide any specifics for her time table. I doubt if she’s in a rush for the rematch for the title either. We have no clue as to when Tatiana will be returning, and if she does, she will probably need a tune-up fight.

    With Claudia Gadelha vs. Xiaonan Yan less than a month away, I would be good with the winner challenging Weili. Not sure why Carla pulled out of her fight with Amanda, but given that she has a longer win streak than anyone ranked above her, I would even be OK with seeing her challenge for the title as she has requested. I have little hopes of it being competitive, but not much less so than any of Valentina’s opponents challenging her. Besides, I would like to see her grappling vs. Weili’s if Weili could restrain from striking for a while. In short, I’m good with whoever can challenge Weili soonest.
