    Other than the head and arm throw? Seems like every single fight she tries to rush her opponents flailing her arms around with her chin in the air, luckily nobody she has fought got great power to make her pay for it. If not the lucky kick she could have very well lost to Bec, lost the first round when she couldn't do what she does to weaker opponents who can't avoid the rush & throw.
    Time to change camps and learn striking as well as other skills? So far every single fight she does the same thing and when it doesn't work it looks brutal like her fight against Rose.

    She should get a neck tattoo.

    She's a wall and stall fighter who's biggest asset is being a good athlete.

    I heard she can dance pretty well and Rogan said that she has KO power that others need to be aware of.
    Sounds like the perfect fighter.

    Her only attribute appears to be toughness. She's like a little bulldog - she's feisty and keeps coming, doesn't give up easy.

    And that's admirable but it's not enough on it's own. She doesn't appear to have an actual skillset.

    I don't understand how women that small can even do damage with their strikes

    I am so not getting this hate. Is it because she's kinda hot?

    Yeah I believe so but she's also over related as a fighter bc of her looks so that gets her a lot of hate.

    PVZ is tough and scrappy. She needs to take her opponent to the later rounds to take advantage of her cardio. PVZ's mistake against Waterson is trying to grapple her when we all know that majority of Waterson's wins are via submission.

    Athleticism and toughness are her best attributes. I'm still kind of surprised she beat Herrig.

    It's WMMA did you actually expect her to know how to fight? It's all about hype and selling a watered down product for the sake of giving women a chance to do everything men can do. See WNBA for further details.

    And her looks are vastly overrated. UFC refuses to accept that the vast majority of women who fight are very average looking.

    it's really shocking how unskilled she still looks. I wonder if maybe she doesn't train that often. some people just aren't fighters, you can put them in a camp with real fighters and they just won't ever develope. you see the same thing with sage.

    Yet you talk about it and go into threads about Women's MMA. Shut your uneducated ass up.

    Her biggest asset is her drive and tenacity. She's young and lost a couple. Big deal.
