Sounds like she isn't in the mood for spawning...... OR; Is it possible that she is actually a he?
Females attacking males do happen. But they usually do a "hit/bite and run" technique - not head on fight. This is why I often stress flirt swimming instead of bars or nests as signs of readiness. Further I also stress the male MUST be very active. Both will reduce female attacks.
@Better betta: Yes they would have spawned if you left them together. But you did the right thing by separating them. Otherwise he could have ended up worst.
For future references; now that you know your female is very aggressive, next time (if you breed her again) make your male aggressive .... vicious. This is no guarantee that she won't tear his fins, but it won't be as bad as your current male.
If it's possible, don't breed her because I believe she will pass on her character to the fry (like tail biters or egg eaters). Hopefully you won't have the same problem when you breed your fry.
