    Not to sound weird but does anyone else feel like she moves like a male fighter? The way she stays on the balls of her feet makes her latteral movement smooth as heck. She became a dangerous striker after the Zingano fight, is this an ATT thing or is this her genetics finally making a difference?

    Probably some of both. Definitely someone to watch out for. I'd like to see more of her ground game if it's improved.

    She's always been a killer. Her cardio is what holds her back, she either finishes you in the first or she gets finished later in the round.

    She has looked good after the Zingano fight and I hope she keeps getting better! She is a badass. She looked good in the first round against Cat (almost finished her) but got tired after wasting a lot of energy going for the finish.

    I feel like she needs to pick her shots a little bit better when going for the finish and she'll be good to go!

    It looked like she was trying hard to look like she was moving like she should. Seriously. It looked like a lot of wasted energy, posturing. I wasn't impressed.

    Her footwork looked really good. Especially staying away from McMann's biggest weapons, her TD's and big overhand right. Same thing Holly Holm was criticized for in her last fight.

    I disagree neo footwork is based on switching stances and catching the guy out of position which takes ridiculous stamina. Nunes doesnt seem to waste that much energy.

    Looked better than ever last night. Reminded me of a female TRTor. If she continues to grow like this it could get interesting at 135 again.
