I think Mackenzie Dern could defeat some of those names in the top 10.

Bellator has some interesting fights they could make at 145 with Cat Zingano, Cyborg, Julia Budd and Leslie Smith.

I agree with you om Mackenzie Dern but remember that at this point she is untested in fighters of those caliber because she just hasn't fought any of those top women yet. Maybe next month I'll slide her into the honorable mentions of the pound for pound rankings. Also yes Cat, Cyborg, Julia and Leslie are all good fighters and Cyborg has already fought two of them.
