As for actual fighting, its partly because she can get some good KO's (mostly trough continuous strikes through ground and pound) which is unusual for women's Flyweights. Most women's Flyweight fights end in either a submission or a decision so she offers something a bit different. I know I'm in the minority here but my favourite types of fights (this applies to the men's fights as well) are the grappling chess matches where almost all of the action is on the ground with the fighters attempting submissions and breaking their opponents attempts at submissions. This is why I enjoy watching the lower weight classes and WMMA in particular because they provide those types of fights more often and Valentina is very good on the ground as well as getting KO's so you never quite know how she's going to finish it.
In short: she's probably the most interesting WMMA fighter to watch as she's got a good ground game and can also find KO's.
