She got caught in a rear naked choke, but I thought her wrestling and scrambles were very impressive.

Do you dislike her??
I thought her takedowns were far from awful. Her and Julianna's boxing was awful. The grappling was not.
She only started landing on her back when she started getting limp from exhaustion.
Her top control wasn't ridiculous either. It's just harder for lighter fighters to maintain top control and her opponent defended herself well.
Her transitions were good, again, while she had energy.
The submissions attempted arguement is moot too. It's not as if there was blatantly obvious opportunities to finish the fight by submission and she didn't realise it.
