    As good as her judo credentials are, there can be no denying she lacks explosive wrestling takedowns, given that women are less explosive than men, I think it would complement her submission skills with takedowns like sonnen, or even claudia gadhela (comparison to women fighters). When trying to clinch, you have to wade through the punches and elbows, but with single or double legs, the threat mainly comes from knees, maybe all those punches she received stalled her capacity to adjust to the fight,

    If wrestling was absolutely useless it'd be called judo
