Irene Aldana (NR) Irene Aldana makes her debut in the top 15 in place of the injured Miriam Nakamoto following her incredibly impressive Invicta debut this past weekend, dropping Peggy Morgan twice before finishing The Ultimate Fighter season 18 veteran with a rear naked choke. Women’s Strawweight 1. Jessica Aguilar 2. Claudia Gadelha 3. Carla Esparza 4. Ayaka Hamasaki 5. Joanne Calderwood 6. Tecia Torres 7. Joanna Jedrzejczyk 8. Mizuki Inoue 9. Katja Kankaanpaa 10. Stephanie Eggink (+4) 11. Felice Herrig (-1) 12. Bec Rawlings (Hyatt) (-1) 13. Rose Namajunas (-1) 14. Paige VanZant (-1) 15. Karolina Kowalkeiwicz While Stephanie Eggink lost her title fight to Katja Kankaanpaa this past weekend in the Invicta FC 8 co-main event, she put on such an impressive performance that we’re giving her a big boost in the rankings. She was up 39-36 on our scorecards heading into the fifth round (following a 10-8 fourth round in her favor) before she was submitted by Kankaanpaa. We would not be surprised if Eggink were favored in a rematch so we’re bumping her all the way up to 10th in our rankings.
