    Come on Uncle Dana. Let's do some cross-promotion with Valentina smeshing up people win ONE. Sure it's burned you in the past, but if you aren't going to do Valentina vs Nunes 3, lets get those 4 ounchers going in Muay Thai.

    I'd pay damn good money to watch Valentina and Anissa Meksen go at it in Muay Thai.

    She would lose to any female fighter in ONE.

    What makes you say that?

    The lack of drug testing there?

    Valentina would be in One FC, she can do MMA, Kickingboxing, MT. We've seen what happened to UFC fighters in One FC though.

    It's hard to picture it unfolding and not laugh.

    He can just wait another year or two and get everyone for even lower price when promotion folds

    We've seen some, but that doesn't mean they compare. You can't forget the ridiculous championship pedigree Valentina has in Muay Thai and Kickboxing before transitioning to MMA. There's a difference between an MMA fighter trying to do kickboxing/MT, and a former KB/MT champion turned MMA fighter returning to their roots.

    Valentina is more suited for MT than KB rules. She doesn't fight the way she does in MMA when she does MT. She is more a clincher/thrower and kick catcher.

    Schevchenko is the best WMMA FLW fighter in the world, there's no one for her at ONE FC either. Maybe Xiong Jing Nan could be an interesting fight, but Schev is stronger and more well-rounded. I just don't see her losing to anyone at 125lbs in an MMA fight. In a pure muay thai or kickboxing fight, who would she fight at ONE? Stamp Fairtex is like half her size.

    Yeah, DJ won a Grand Prix, Eddie continued to be over the hill, Sage got whipped by someone good, and Lineker is about to fight for the title. The good fighters did good things, a former champ has mixed results, and the overrated fighter got smashed. Not bad results at all.

    Eliminate weight cutting. Have Pride rules!
    UFC should start their own Muay Thai organization, adopt ONE weight cutting elimination and rules as well

    Copy ONE but do it better

    Nunes is the only fight that makes sense now. Valentina has beaten 4 of the 5 in the top 5 currently in her division and Cavillo (#5) just lost. She'll have to sit and wait for a contender of they'll have to randomly give someone like Calderwood or Grasso a title shot.

    You'd be paying to watch Valentina lose with ease in that case. She has nothing for girls like Meksen or Van Soest in pure striking. Van Soest in particular would work her easily.

    Maybe in kickboxing rules. Van Soest gets her shit wrecked in Muay Thai, Valentina will just clinch abuse her for the entire fight. Tiffany is good, but she's not on the same level as Meksen, the only reason she has a win over Anissa is because they kept gifting her rematches until they finally got 3 sufficiently bought off judges.

    Just because Val looks amazing against extremely low level strikers like Eye, Carmouche, and Murphy, doesn't mean she 'abuses' a striker of Van Soest's level, whether it's kickboxing or MT.

    Your last part about Van Soest is utter bullshit too. The 2nd fight was a good win for Anissa, but how can you possibly say Van Soest isn't on the same level when she took her to a split in a very close fight?

    And the third was competitive again, but anyone who watches kickboxing knows Van Soest rightfully won, and the scorecards reflected that. Paid judges had nothing to do with it.
