    Even though Amanda beaten her twice, I'd say Valentina.

    I would say Schev is more skilled but Nunes is more accomplished so I would pick Nunes as much as it pains me to say it because I really like Val and I think she is GOAT in terms of skills.

    Shevchenko : better all-round fighter IMHO, and more dedicated to martial-arts and constant training in general.

    Valentina Shevchenko is clearly a lot more skilled and has just as many defenses (only counting 1 division), in much more dominant fashion

    There's no argument for Nunes

    Pound-for-pound I put Bullet a shade ahead of the Lioness.

    Valentina is 22-3, Nunes is 21-4.

    Nunes beat her ass twice wtf kind of dumb question is this?

    Not to mention the Cyborg win alone is better than Shevchenko's entire career.

    Their resumes say it all. Sorry, but being the more “attractive” doesn’t count.

    When Shevchenko beats everybody on Amanda’s resume. And then beats her 3 straight in a best out of 5. That’s when I’ll call her the GOAT. Until then it’s a silly question, and non-starter.

    pound 4 pound shev is better

    i also think she won the second fight. but even it was a draw or split for nunes, that is in shev's favor because she is alot smaller.

    both of them are in terribly shallow divisions so title defenses aren't really a good marker. But nunes did beat cyborg. on the flip side her standup looked like garbage against GDR.

    The answer is Amanda.

    Y'all are too biased to be counted on to tell the truth.

    2 wins over Shev, dethroned Cyborg with a KO/TKO, and stopped both Ronda and Holly.

    Nunes easily. Just compare the best wins

    Nunes- Holms, GDR, Rousey, Tate, Shev*2, Cyborg
    Shev- Joanna, Holms, Andrade. Thats it.

    I consider Schev to be the slightly better fighter in terms of pound for pound well rounded skill set.


    But there is no argument who has the better resume, that is Amanda. She has WMMA mount rushmore on her kill list.

    Schev could eventually pass her, especially if she can win the bantamweight belt off Nunes, but she has a ways to go to build her resume first.

    That’s exactly what I’m assuming anybody voting for Shevchenko is doing. Because her resume simply doesn’t back up that claim.

    They actually fought eachother. That’s as far as you need to go to decide who is better. Then the rest of their resumes don’t even compare.

    You tell me what else it could be. I’ve been reading here for over 3 years. I think I have a pretty good handle on the pulse of the average Sherdogger’s views of wmma.

    You really cant make that argument when Shev has lost twice to Nunes.

    Nunes is like how much pounds bigger than Schevchenko is when they fought? Valentina also I believe won her second fight with Nunes, it's really 1-1 in my eyes.
