    Shevchenko is p4p better and would beat Nunes if they were the same size.

    Nunes is awesome as f*ck though and i'm splitting hairs here.

    Size didn't really play any factor in their second fight. It was a point fight for 5 rounds and Valentina lost that. It's not like Nunes wrestlefucked her with her size and strength for 5 rounds.

    It still helps of you're bigger though, but i agree that it's more of a factor if they wrestled or had exchanged in the pocket.

    She beat Cyborg, which means she could beat an average american male.

    How do you come to Shev being P4P better? Official rankings don't have her ahead in P4P.

    I'm not saying she's not btw, just wondering what the claim is based off.

    Are you talking about the 2nd fight? Because size and strength played absolutely no part in that, unless we're talking about whatever reach advantage Nunes had (I'm assuming she had the reach over Valentina here).

    Size doesn't mean shit to Val anyway. Holly is an absolute monster of a BW. Her shoulders and strength are ridiculous. Val styled on her and ragdolled her whenever she wished.

    Schevchenko is the only one who could maybe challenge her, but Nunes is definetly the GOAT of women's MMA............ No wait Jessica Eye is

    Definitely the WMMA GOAT. To me, ranking GOATs is different than ranking P4P. I rank GOATs based on resume and accomplishments. Things like ranked wins, victories in title fights, title defenses, former champs beaten. For me, it’s:
    1. Amanda
    2. Ronda
    3. Valentina
    4. Joanna
    5. Cyborg

    Although due to PED failures, I’d be fine bouncing Cyborg from the list altogether.

    If Shevchenko was the same size, she'd obviously have more power in her shots, speed (carrying less fat), longer reach, and there'd be a lot more of this:

    According to Wiki
    Shev 66.5' reach and is 5 ft 5.
    Nunes 69' reach and is 5 ft 8.

    Yes, she is. Valentina will always be chasing her, but she'll never catch her.

    Depends on what you value more? Peak or longevity.

    Cat Zingano threw Nunes around like a ragdoll, then beat her into a bloody mess at UFC 178.

    Zingano was undefeated at that time. Her victory over Meisha Tate was the best display of MMA in women's history. Joanna vs Weili was essentially just a striking match. Zingano vs Tate was complete MMA.



    Zingano is a GOAT in the same sense as Aldo. She was absolutely dominant early in her career, then made a huge tactical error that resulted in a 14-second defeat and was never the same afterwards. But if you look at her fights before that, she was dominant, including against elite competition like Nunes.

    Nunes has been able to sustain dominance over a longer period of time, but Zingano reached a higher peak, although it was pretty short.

    She fell off so hard and watching her in Bellator was rather sad...
