    Nunes is gonna turn Valentina's face into hamburger meat, and it will be glorious. Can't wait.

    Shevchenko beat her..she got ROBBED...Notice Nunes wont even say her name. But Shevchenko has said hers plenty. She wants the rematch and said that Amanda knows she got beat.

    What did Valentina do in either fight that won it definitively? The first was a clear 29-28 Nunes win, the second was close but Amanda controlled it and shut Valentina down.

    "Notice Nunes wont even say her name."

    Maybe because Saltchenko is in a different weight class now where she can whoop on washouts and cans?

    She didn't, IMO. People here were just blinded by fanboyism and hate because of the Nunes pullout. We've seen with Jones/Santos that Sherdoggers have no trouble denying reality when they don't get their way

    so valentina is also right up there with female goat talks....she beat holly right? and she beat Joanna...i say have valentina fight the winner of nunes vs cyborg...and this is with valentina being a legit weight class lower than nunes. maybe even 2...if i'm not mistaken...and her last fight with nunes, was a split very close fight.

    but as long as nunes has the win in the record books, that's what most go by...they definitely need to fight again...if valentina can get the decision this time, she will be goat...

    meh it was close both fights and nunes go the nod..not gonna say ROBBERY.. just close fights. even if you gave her one of those wins, nunes still beat everyone else..


    the crazy part is, nunes is getting better by a long shot each fight. I think the bullet is the most skilled WMMA fighter ever but the explosiveness and size differnce of nunes puts her just a slight bit ahead of the bullet...

    Your av is hypnotic. I was just reading and scrolling, reading and scrolling and then BAM!!!! My eyes immediately focused on your av for at least 30 seconds as I wished there was volume for it so I could hear the water being slapped.

    i think Valentina could have got the nod in both fights and it would not be controversial outside huggers or haters. The fights were very close.

    That said Valentina fights very rigid against Nunes in a way that focuses on defense and neutralizing Nunes and as Machida learned in the early days, that style is not fan or judge friendly and you will likely lose the nod in close fights where it appears the opponent is the one pushing the fight.

    I think there should be a 3rd fight at 135.

    There really isn't anyone left for either of them. Still think nunes gets it though. Val doesn't have enough power in her fists to end it and Nunes is strong enough to take her down. Nunes will probably just keep her on her back for 5 rounds and grind out a decision

    I've never seen a more clear 2-1 fight in my life than Nunes/Shev 1. I thought Valentina won the rematch, and that's a true split decision.

    Nunes got the first fight. Don't have a problem with either getting the nod in the second.
