Would rather have seen Penne fight for the title next and Carla fight Randa, but I'm not Joe Silva or Sean Shelby

I totally agree. Penne for the title. You know it will be the winner of VanZant/Herrig. Sex sells and neither are worthy. It is hard to establish a weight-class when the title it changing hands every fight. 135 Females are known because everyone is looking for that 135er that can beat Ronda the arm collector. So, we pay attention to the whole weight-class. If the 115 title keeps changing hands, we as the fans can't really focus on a stable weight-class, so it becomes unpopular. So, by feeding Joanna Jedrzejczyk fighters that are not near her level keeps her on top of the pile and establishes the 115 female weight-class. It's all marketing.

I think page vs felice will be for next title fight.

Penne needs a better opponent.

This card will probably be annouced as a whole fight card.

My guess is leites vs Kennedy will be co main

I think JoJo Calderwood will get the next shot if she wins, maybe even on the upcoming Scotland show if the timing works out.

Paige may get a title shot with a win over Herrig, but I can't see the same being said for Herrig.

I think you'd see a rematch between Joanna and Gadelha before they'd consider giving Herrig a title shot given her record.

But I agree that Calderwood will likely get a shot before any rematch between Joanna and Claudia.
