    Talking about technique, who has better kicks than Valentina Shevchenko?
    Some UFC commentators and fighters have said that she has the best spinning kicks in the game. And I believe it.

    Nobody.

    Shev., Nunes, Holm, Zhang will be WMMA top rank for a while.

    Any male fighters, including ones who have never thrown a kick.

    in terms of WMMA, then she is probably the best with Holm

    Both former champs..

    Knocking Lyoto is just silly Bro.

    Nobody is knocking Shev for KO'ing soccer moms (or they shouldn't be)

    Shev is amazing and top of the class in talent... Men or Women

    Wonderboy but its tough to say. Bullet seems to get off a wider range of attacks with less time spent finding range, she might be the best martial artist as a whole right now

    Israel, Barboza, Yair, Gaethje, Hooker, Masvidal (not as fancy but has good basic attacking roundhouses), Wonderboy, Lima, Venom Page.

    Lets be real though Val is super skilled but she is also fighting opponents that are way outmatched. However, the fact that she basically fought Nunes to a stand still twice says a lot - better technique and skill but just outsized by a larger opponent who is just skilled enough to not get schooled.

    Dude. Relax. Sure she is an woman but there’s no way Masvidal is as technical. Neither are Hooker and Gaythje. She has zero telegraph, very accurate, ridiculous timing and good power.
    She’s just leagues above her competition right now.

    There a lot of fighters that have their own signature (good) kick or two, but for me it's definitely Valentina as she has a large arsenal of kicks.
    And If I understood the TS question, so it's not who has the hardest kick or more kick with KOs, but best kicks.

    How often do you see a fighter quit from a inside leg kick?
