In the live discussion during last night's event I was saying how Andrea Lee would score fairly well on a Talent vs Hotness scale. I used the examples of PVZ scoring high on hotness, but lower on talent, whereas Cyborg would be low on hotness, but high on talent. I thought it might be interesting to see where the community would rate well-known female fighters and plot the results in a coordinate plane. Quadrant 1 (upper left) would be high talent, low hotness, Quadrant 2 (upper right) is high talent, high hotness, Quadrant 3 (lower left) is low talent, low hotness, and Quadrant 4 (lower right) is low talent, high hotness.

If you want to participate simply post a comment with the WMMA fighter's name and where you would put them on a scale of -10 to +10 for talent and -10 t0 +10 for hotness. For example, if on average Gina Carano was rate +8 talent / +10 hotness, she would end up high and to the right within Quadrant 2. If Amanda Nunes came in at +10 talent / - 5 hotness she would be very high up and mid-way to the left within Quadrant 1. Current and former fighters can be included.

I'll see what the responses look like and come back with the results plotted on a graph like the one below after a week or so (or when it seems like the responses have stopped trickling in).

(In no way am I looking for this to be chauvinistic or offensive with this. The grid is merely an interesting visual way to see where the community ranks female fighter on this scale. That said, let's keep the comments respectful)

Remember, these are scales ranging from -10 to +10 so 0 is considered average.

Also, the hotness is within WMMA, not the real world.

Finally, these are all subjective opinions so, there is no "right" answer
