Does Nunes have the same punching style as Holloway?

    Yes, in that they both use their fists to punch

    Lol, it is funny to think that Amanda Nunes might possibly be a harder hitter than Holloway.

    She has little more momentum behind her punches and a wide manly frame, so it could be.

    Switch opponents and Max has a 100% KO rate and Amanda would have a 100% getting KOd rate

    Don't be a dumbass. Guys and girls are built differently. Max hits way harder than Amanda

    I see the similarities, for sure. I'd argue (strongly) that she has more power.

    Amanda hits women for a living.

    Contrary to popular current belief, hitting a woman and hitting a guy are not the same thing

    Also the level of competition.

    Nunes isn't knocking out legit fighters like Shevchenko or even GDR

    Lmao

    Yeah, because the level of WMMA is mostly poor compared to MMA, and doesn't require as much skill to win and finish fights in WMMA. Look at Nunes' awful striking technique against literally all of her opponents. She can get away with swinging wildly because her opponents are even worse than her and don't know how to deal with it lmao - it is comical.

    Also, let's see Nunes fight anyone near the level of Aldo

    It's not about being insecure. Amanda would beat the shit out of me. But to say she hits harder than Max is insane. Can you imagine how hard it would look like Max hit if he fought females?

    max is not a power puncher. wouldn’t matter if he was fighting high schoolers. he’s not a puncher. amanda is. it’s a mechanical thing. she puts her body weight behind her punches and max doesn’t. amanda would knock a lot of 145 pound dudes out if she doesn’t get overpowered in the grappling and lands punches clean.

    Did anyone said she can be a 135 men champion? Or denied that wmma sucks?
    <{vega}>

    But if you don't see that they both:
    1. staying on the outside
    2. having wide stance that allows them to defend and counter
    3. leaning forward while being heavy on the front left leg during the attack
    4. throwing combinations
    Then you are blind.
