The UFC women’s featherweight division recently made some news … without really making any news. When Aspen Ladd missed weight for a women’s bantamweight bout against Sara McMann in September, it led to the fight’s cancellation … which led to her release from the UFC … which led to her signing with the PFL to fight at featherweight next season … which led to her coach, Jim West, telling MMA Junkie Radio that the UFC’s women’s 145-pound division is devoid of opportunities for Ladd and wouldn’t exist if dual champion Amanda Nunes didn’t hold the belt. So we took a look at the history of women’s featherweight in the UFC – a division that through the first nine months of 2022 had just five fights. In fact, in the time since the division debuted in February 2017, the UFC has had 232 total fight cards – but just 25 total women’s featherweight fights.
