Nicco Montano @ syndicate MMA.

I'll call her as one to make a move in woman's MMA 2021.

Her strength and athleticism are good what she's lacked is technique.

Rounding out her game she could end up looking like Khabib 2021.

Maybe but I seriously doubt she has what it takes to take out Valentina. Just because Jennifer Maia was able to give her a run for her money doesn't mean anyone can give her a run for her money. Though I would like to see that lineal unification match finally.

I think Montano could have more brute strength than Maia or Shevchenko.

Had Valentina by decision when she fought Maia. I knew the fight would be competitive.

I'm going to be honest I don't think of Montano as having brute strength.

She overpowered Julianna Pena in a way no one has seen before.

Lack of technique was the main thing preventing Montano from winning that fight.

We'll just have to wait and see. Either way it would be nice to finally see that champion versus champion fight cause after all, Nicco never actually lost her title. She was kind of screwed in that way.
