    They're both world class strikers. Valentina is quicker and has faster reflexes and Antonina hits harder and her Muay Thai clinch is deadly.

    I would say Valentina since is the first women to utilize the spinning back kick in the UFC. She is so creative.

    What a stupid thread. The answer is so painfully obvious.

    Roxanne's striking and movement is so awkward; it's difficult to look impressive against her. No one thought that she would beat Macy Barber either.

    Antonina seems more willing to go to war and is much easier on the eyes, so her. :)

    That is a fair point, but i guess Roxanne beating Valentina would be the ultimate upset ever, hope the UFC makes it happen, not many in line for it and she is getting close to that title shot, considering Chookagian got it and i didnt even knew who she was before getting crushed by Valentina, at least i know Roxanne back from TUF and her current UFC run.

    Pretty self-evident I think... and I'm a "white belt".

    How do we define "better"? Is it the one who knows more fancy techniques, the one who's had more success in combat sports, or do we look at who better understands & applies fundamental & advanced concepts in striking? We also need to take athleticism into consideration, a freak of nature like Yoel Romero can often run over more skilled opponents with his physical gifts. With the Shevchenko sisters, it's not an easy question to answer.

    Valentina is the best striker in wmma. I had her beating Nunes in the rematch as well.
