If you’re a fan of Megumi Fujii, you’ll want to watch her retirement fight yesterday in Japan

Megumi Fujii is one of only three females to ever be placed on the official MiddleEasy Frate Trane List. The other two are Cris Cyborg and Ronda Rousey and we will never see a day in which both of them step in a cage to fight against each other. Some say Ronda Rousey ducked Cris Cyborg when she moved down to 135 lbs from her previous fighting weight of 145 lbs (even 150 lbs when she fought Charmaine Tweet at a catchweight). Others say Cris Cyborg could easily cut to 135 lbs and compete in the bantamweight division, but instead makes dubious claims that it’s ‘medically impossible’ to cut 10 lbs. It’s the greatest fight that no one will be able to see — and it will go down in history as one of MMA’s most unfortunate tragedies — right alongside Brock vs. Fedor never being assembled by M-1 and the UFC.

Fujii was in talks of being the greatest pound-for-pound female fighter in history, but her 22-fight winning streak was unfortunately stopped by Zoila Frausto in a highly controversial split decision at Bellator 34. Since that day, Mega Megu never really has been the same. She grabbed three consecutive wins only to be stopped by Jessica Aguilar at Bellator 69 via another unanimous decision, but this time far less controversial. Fujii competed at Vale Tudo Japan 2012 at the end of last year and came out with a win over Mei Yamaguchi. In 2013, there was talks of a final retirement fight Mega Megu planned at some point — and last night that final bout happened in a rematch with Jessica Aguilar at Vale Tudo Japan 3rd. We’re not going to ruin it for you, but if you’re a fan of Megumi Fujii perhaps you want to take a look. Props to @WMMANews for the find.
