    GOAT is purely subjective, pointless drivel.

    I think you have to say Joanna and Cyborg specifically for MMA. There have been girls who have better striking accomplishments who have fought in MMA like GDR, Holly, Valentina and even Denise Kielholtz and Jorina Baars, but for what they've done with it in MMA, it's Joanna and Cyborg easily imo.

    Joanna
    Cyborg
    Shevchenko
    Kolwalkawicz
    Holm
    Nunes


    The rest of wmma for the most part literally cannot strike effectively at all.

    Tough question, there are so many phenomenal strikers in WMMA to choose from...it's amazing how sharp and technically sound they've all become









    LOL

    cyborg cause i don't see anyone stopping her in striking. but if joanna was somehow big enough without losing speed and skill she would be, but you can't be better than someone if you can't beat them.

    If someone does not have technically sound striking (bad fundamentals) but is significantly stronger and faster, and wins through aggression and athleticism, does that actually make them a better striker or a better athlete?

    I lean towards the "better athlete" side of the equation. I see a better striker as someone more skilled.

    Cyborg, JJ, Valentina and Holly (extremely skilled, less exciting) are excellent strikers but I am of the belief it is too early to anoint a GOAT striker of WMMA just yet.

    GOAT = greatest of all time - which is dumb since time is not exactly stopping anytime soon and until it does, giving this title to anyone is something only a moron would do.

    And then there's the fact that wmma is still in its infantry.
