    Comparing with another female mma fighters? I was reviewing Holm's recent fights and she was taking her opponents down pretty easily. I don't see many women in the division imposing their wrestling so effectly like her, I wonder if her wrestling is really above the average female in UFC

    Shed be more dominant if she stopped with the twinkle toes kickboxing and did more grappling.

    Considering she was originally a boxer and kickboxer its pretty good. But Aldanas TDD was exposed

    It's trash, but WMMA is trash so she can get takedowns by simply being less trash. Schoolyard head and arm throws are the most effective TD in WMMA, that's pretty sad.

    Holm learns all her wrestling in the bed.

    But all jokes aside, shes a beast and deserves the credit.

    It's as good as most others in that division. Her TDD is good.

    B grade, its good enough to help her survive not really good enough to dominate her opponent en route to a wine

    Holly is strong as hell. She was controlling Cyborg in the clinch when they fought- if she chose wrestling instead of boxing she would be even more of a beast.

    I'd rate her at about a D1 level of wrestling, meaning she can occasionally stuff some takedowns, but otherwise she is a complete turtle when taken down and goes to sleep instead of tapping.

    There's going to be a lot of ish and tiny shorts jokes in here but she actually used to hurt people before ronda. She looked pretty ok on the ground. Considering she's a kick boxer she has looked ok with TDS. Idk what happened after that because she has looked terrible. Her kiai has definitely evolved though

    I forget who it was not I read an interview if a replacement fighter against Holm or something. She was saying how fucking crazy huge and scary she looked across the cage. She seems to have chose screaming and shadow boxing now which sucks because she's pretty ok at everything.
