I could be wrong but I don't think I've ever seen a female fighter win by guillotine

For the guillotines Lemos got one this year over Waterson, I know Andrade got at least one also over Calderwood, They're most likely be a few more i'm forgetting
For the kimuras, I have no memorie of any happening, But I kinda doubt it the first kimuras, I fell like Kimuras are more of a rarer sub anyway
