    Her sister has the same problem, they just don't move their head and seem to stand to upright/stiff, is weird.......Sadly WMMA can't exploit this obvious weakness.


    They need edmond to train them.

    The yellow card is totally justified with threads like this.

    How was she a multiple time kickboxing champ? Her striking looks really mediocre.

    Every WMMA fighter is the same way but so are most kickboxers in general.

    Because pure striking arts don't translate 1 to 1 into mma

    Head movement is more of a thing in boxing than in Muay Thai.

    WMMA fighters usually have bad defense. The lack of women with serious power probably contributes towards this.

    Precisely. Shevchenko's predominant and default art is MT modified for mma so she does not rely as much on head movement. That being said she can slip punches very competently she has shown in the past.

    Rose has had to face killers like Joanna, Zhang, and Andrade
