    What's more embarrassing is people who say she got better striking than most of the male fighters in the UFC.

    This is not true on a physical level for sure. But this is not true on a technical level either.

    Her punches are floppy fish punches. Highly inaccurate, and she gets countered a lot. Her only saving grace is her cardio. It's like saying Cain Velasquez is a better striker than JDS. That is simply not true. He simply outwrestles and outcardio JDS.

    Joanna simply out-wills her opponent. But her striking is very wanting. She doesn't know how to sit on her punches. Her accuracy is truly one of the worst. She is like a sloppy pitter patter version of the Diaz, except the Diaz actually have technique, she is simply throwing punches out there with no sense of timing, or range, and she even gets really lazy with the technique too. Any AVERAGE boxer would simply down block her limp-wristed punch and counter straight to to the chin. That's it.

    LoL Joanna got dropped within seconds against Claudia, a BJJ blackbelt.

    Truth is Joanna has average striking, she only looks good when her opponent completely gasses out and doesn't have enough energy to fight back.

    Not to mention Joanna is 0-3 against Shevchenko in Muay Thai. The Joanna nuthuggers will dismiss all of this doe.

    JDS isn't even a very good boxer and Joanna is way better than Cain technically speaking

  6. "Elite" is a relative value. Most female fighters aren't better strikers than Joanna. That makes her an elite striker in WMMA.

    Elite for women, not for men.

    Her speed is incredible for sure and she actually throws combinations. However, she over-commits to combinations and sticks to finishing them even if her opponent has already gotten out of range.

    Her speed, combinations, and cardio are definitely unprecedented in WMMA but her defense and use of angles are not great.

    Even in boxing there are different styles. There is no one way. This is MMA and styles make fights. Do you even lift, bro?

    Here's the thing. When we are comparing both males and females in the statement that proposes "Joanna has better striker than many males in the UFC", that is an absolute no. She is not an elite striker at all.

    When we are only comparing her against the rest of the female division, she again is not "elite" in terms of technique and skills. It is her cardio that is "elite". Her striking is still on a fundamental level, just very wanting. If she pulled that crap in a boxing gym, that would be 1000 "thank-you-coach" push-ups for her everytime she tries that crap on the heavybag.

  12. For you to make that argument, you need to come up with a decent list of WMMA fighters that have better striking.

    I do agree about not making comparisons between female and male sports.

    Multiple time world champion in striking, but she's not elite in MMA. Okay, Sherdog. You know best.

    But Joe Frogan said it so it's true.

    There is a difference between outstriking someone and having better fundamental striking than them. Chuck Liddell could outstrike many people in his prime, was he one of the more technically superior boxer? You should know the answer to that question.

    this simply supports my longstanding hypothesis - most MMA champions are just all around terrible at MMA

    Her punches leave a lot to be desired; she punches air a lot, especially early in the fight. It's her kicks and clinch work that makes her tops.

    I agree there is nothing super impressive about her striking, just looks like a bunch of arm punches. WMMA striking is mostly laughable anyway and shes just decent thats why ppl overhype her skills.

    I don't know why I kept thinking that swing-set in the background was going to explode.

    Mildly disappointed.
