Ariel Helwani and Daniel Cormier sat down to talk about the best wrestlers in the women’s category. They reached a mutual agreement on the position of Valentina Shevchenko in the general ranking.
On the show, the two discussed the rankings of the wrestlers in the promotion. Daniel Cormier was surprised when he saw Zhang Weili in second place, above Valentina Shevchenko, and just below GOAT Amanda Nunes.
Speaking to Ariel Helwani regarding his opinion on the ranking, Cormier said:
“One thing I saw on Saturday that I disagreed with, I saw the top 5 women ranking and I love Zhang Weili. But there is no way that she is above Valentina Shevchenko. She (Chinese) is number 2! She should never be number 2 on Valentina. They are Amanda, Valentina and then Zhang Weili and then all the others ”
Helwani has the same Opinion as Cormier. And to add to the authenticity of their statement, ‘DC’ also made a list that includes all the women who are in the pound-for-pound ranking.
“If we are doing all the pound for pound, Amanda, Valentina, Cyborg and Zhang Weili. That is fair! But Zhang Weili shouldn’t be on top of Valentina Shevchenko ”
There you have it, Daniel Cormier does not agree with the official UFC ranking.
