Personally I think strawweight is deeper than bantamweight at the moment.
Hmm... I think we're talking past each other here.

My point is that when Megumi was undefeated it didn't help WMMA in the states at all because she's Japanese. Even if Megumi was 28-0 right now it wouldn't make her a star in Northern America.

And I agree, strawweight is definitely where it's at for WMMA. Especially since Cyborg got outed as a cheater.
