    I know I'm going to get a lot of shit for this but Valentina is BORING. You can insult me as a poster cause your butthurt but the fact remains that she is BORING. So far in the UFC all of her fights have been BORING and she hasn't come close to finishing any of them. Her fight with Pena (who is also BORING) will without a doubt suck. Am I the only one that feels this way?

    I will say she was more entertaining before she got to the UFC, around the time she got stopped by Liz Carmouche.

    She is a technical counter-striker, who doesn't brawl. I LOVE how she fights and how she throws low kicks with that anger in the eyes and shouting out loud.
    Being a black belt in Judo as well, she is also not afraid of the clinch and being on the ground.
    Valentina will eventually be the 135 and 125 lbs champion.

    There's no finish in sight when she fights, but she's one of the few legitimately skilled women's fighters. But then again you get better technique with more speed in men's fights, and speed makes it tougher to pull those moves off, so the ones who like to study tech prolly look elsewhere first.

    She is a boring point fighter.

    Personally I enjoy seeing a wmma fighter fight with some technique for a change.

    Boredom is a symptom of an underactive brain.

    Watching a woman with skills like Shevchenko is like watching an artist paint. But because you want the picture to finish on your timeframe, then you think it is boring.

    You know what is BORING mother fucker? Your post is BORING.
    Your mother's basement left you BORED so you decided to troll some shit about a fighter with a more entertaining style than you care for.

    Undersized for the division so needs to take a more careful approach. she will be 125 lb champ if/when they make it.

    Didn't find the technical clinic she put on against Holm boring at all though.

    Female MMA is on average pretty boring, but I like Valentina, she's technically sound at least.

    She was beating Nunes pretty soundly in round 3 but never took any risks or went all out for a finish. She could actually be champ now if she had. Her vs Pena has the potential to be a major dud unless she starts fighting more aggressive.

    Pena won 2 of her 4 UFC fights by TKO. And she won all of her fights in the TUF house by finish. She hurts dudes in street fights. What is it you find boring?

    You make that sound much more badass than it actually was, she randomly kicked unsuspecting guys in the balls, that's not cool, she's a cunt.

    This is why I would have much rather seen the FLW division added than the FW division.

    There could really be some good scraps at 125. I hope they add FLW soon. I'm still not sure how it would all shake out, though.

    I never said Pena was cool. I questioned her being called "boring".
