Legitimate question, Why do people don't ***** about her fight be boring, And she has some crazy fanboy. Her fights with Nunes, Carmouch and this fight with Maia was really Dull, And the rest was meh beside the Jessica Eye fight because that head kick was dope adamantly . Don't know anyone who get more leeway for being a dull, boring fighter. It confuse me, Can anyone plese explain why u like her fights or why you think others like her fights

Valentina finishes some fights and when you're the best in the world at a weight class you don't usually get as much flak for being boring.

OK, lets get the obvious reason out the way. She's hot. That's why she has so many simps following her.

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.

Just appreciate the violence that the Lioness brings. Valentina is beating up soccer moms.
