You're right to point out that she said she has trained mostly in Gi. It's hard to tell what she meant by "mostly" exactly, but even if she had only spent about 20% of her training time throughout these three years on No Gi, that would still mean that she has over half a year of training in it. That is vastly more than his three days.

Similarly, I'm not sure what he meant by wrestling (lucha). If, as I understood him, he meant pins-only competitions, than that's a very different beast to competitions where you have to submit your opponent.

If he fights in MMA, he should have some training in grappling, but again, we do not know how much.
