    Greatest woman boxer of all time at her peak moving into MMA, was the real hook specifically. There have been low level boxers who have moved into MMA before.

    Likewise Conor as a top level MMA fighter getting into a pro boxing match was massive.

    If Shields is a stiff, as your saying , and her opponent is a stiff, which you agree, then why are they main event ?? That was a sick joke.

    A woman, and with a headkick...because she was also a kickboxer and had been fighting pro in MMA for 5 years at that point.

    With the amount of belts and cherry picking it could happen under the right circumstances tbh. You dont think Ngannou would have a shot against Stiverne or Charles Martin?

    You said holms fought 5 years and got into the ufc when in reality she trained as a kickboxer for a few years, trained with an mma coach for boxing, than trained mma full time than fought 5 years. All this was in a span of 10-13 years where she already mixed 2 fighting styles and was familiar with mma so saying 5 years isnt that under estimating?

    I agree. I thought the ref coulda stopped it even sooner so he gave Elkin plenty of chances to stay in the fight. In no sense was this a controversial stoppage. Just like in boxing it don't matter if you won the last 9 rounds you can still lose it all in the 10th. That's all that happened here, a fighter who was up 20-18 going into the last rd got stopped on that last rd.

    And Elkin's reaction wasn't one of anger at the fight being stopped which is often telling. She knew she was in a bad spot & wasn't mad in the moment at the ref.
    You are right and I absolutely agree. She could have been seriously hurt in there if that fight had not been stopped. She could have easily loss consciousness and gone into a comatose state.

    In situations like that; One have to err on the side of caution. This girl was a soccer mom and was too brave for own good. She displayed a tremendous amount of heart in there against Claressa Shields. Even though she never tapped out; Yet she still was throwing nothing back. Therefore the referee had to call a halt to the action due to the excessive amount of head trauma she was absorbing.

    Damn, I stand corrected. That’s actually all I need to know.

    I think he actually has good intentions “technically”. But he’s also a dude that said he can fight.. but has never had any sanctioned fight ever.

    So ultimately I think personally I give him a pass simply because the thinks what he means is sincere in subjects. But he needs to educate himself more and become more enlightened.
