    She said back in the day it was Rousey and now it's Valentina Shevchenko.

    “She’s extraordinary. She’s beyond anyone else, and I think she’s better than any girl right there, and she’s the girl to beat right now. It used to be Ronda (Rousey), and now it’s Valentina. That’s the girl to beat in the UFC.”

    “Bate Estaca” says “every fighter that dreams of fighting with the best wants to fight Valentina”.

    I agree with her, Shevchenko's only been beat by split desicion against a bigger fighter that is supposed to be the "GWOAT" and most people think Shevchenko still beat her.

    While Nunes's been finished in the UFC already.

    True 0-2.

    But in reality if that first fight is 5 rounds..Nunes loses.

    And the 2nd fight I personally had Valentina winning. Very close though

    Sounds like too much speculation, for all we know Nunes would’ve KO’d Shev in round 4. The reality is Nunes scored a dominant 10-8 round and clearly beat Shev in the first fight.

    In a 3 round fight yes.

    That 3rd round, Nunes was gassing hard. I would not have been shocked to see Shev win the last 2 rounds.

    And yes you are correct, Nunes did have a 10-8, which would have made it a draw.

    The 2nd fight was a very close fight and could have gone either way. I have no issue with a 3rd fight occurring.

    I'd say she's the most well rounded of the WMMA fighters and in regards to her all round skill set she is on par with pretty much most male mma fighters.

    If "ifs" and "buts" were candy and nuts, wouldn't it be a Merry Christmas?

    Dern's ground game is far superior than Shev's

    No, Nunes is the woman to beat. A real two division champion. That happens to hold two wins over Shevchenko. That’s my opinion.

    I thought Nunes won both fights (the second barely), but that Valentina is arguably more skilled in a way that is somewhat washed out by physical differences on the part of Nunes (who is also very skilled).

    Toss up fights against someone two weight classes bigger.
