Pearl Gonzalez is good both on the ground and in the stand-up. She is a quality fighter with good hooks and excellent right low kick. Her takedowns are very good, especially single leg. When in the clinch, she wraps her arms around the opponent and doesn’t let go until she takes her down.
However, her specialty is submissions. In her professional career, Pearl has 5 submission victories. Her most favorite submission is armbar (3 victories). On the ground, she prefers submission more than anything, but she also knows to use punches and elbows effectively.
Her weakest spot is blocking – Pearl Gonzalez is extremely vulnerable to hooks, jabs, and crosses, while her submission defense and takedown defense is good. She holds guard a little lower, slightly under the level of her chin. Before professional fighting, Pearl had a score of 7-1 in amateur MMA fights.
