    simple question, how good was miesha in regards to her grappling in mma or overall, i considered her to be one of the better grapplers...esp during her era, even into the more modern times of mma.

    am i wrong...break it down for me in regards to her game..

    Look at her record. She's got a ton of wins by submission, many of them against opponents thought of as being good grapplers themselves.

    Pretty good. More gritty than technical, but in comparison to her competition she was legit.

    I believe she would potentially struggle with elite purplebelt competition, get beat soundly by most brownbelts and get smashed by a lot of blackbelts.

    Athletically world glass for women in combat sports and very tough in the no gi environment. I dont think Ive ever seen Miesha in a gi?

    Honestly I always thought she was pretty good, if not very dynamic or versatile. She played a straightforward traditional BJJ game on the ground (top, that is), as far as positional work and techniques, and submissions, and her wrestling was solid. Nothing exceptional but better than average, and above all she was persistent and hard to deter, which goes a long way.
