    Title says everything. I give her credit for standing in there and not quitting and I know Nunes is a beast, but wow. She literally looked like she had not trained a day in her life in those 48 seconds.

    Who's put on a worse display of striking defense?

    Her face defended 100% of Nunes' strikes

    I wonder if they ever let anyone hit her in training, coz the way she reacts it looks like she's never been hit before.

    Ask his opponents

    I was going to say the worst since UFC 1...but even most of the guys at UFC kept their distance and tried dodge. So yeah.

    I suspect she is so coddled at Edmund's gym that she has rarely been hit there.

    Honestly, if Edmond wasn't able to catch on, after so many years with her, that's she's not ready for a meaningful striking exchange or that's she'd abandon a gameplan, he needs to invest in a kebab truck and stop training combat sports

    Believing in the hype job and an awful coach can do that to anyone.

    Gotta wonder how her career would have turned out if she trained at a real camp with real coaches instead of yes men.

    She's too weak mentally, can't handle not being the best and not being constantly praised. It's a shame because under Greg Jackson she could have been a far better fighter.

    Her stand up is dreadful and never got even a little better. Her footwork, defence and striking are all amateur and the only thing she had going for her on the feet is other girls were terrified of getting taken down and she seemed to have KO power. If she trained with a real coach and rounded out her game she would have been truly scary
