    You wouldn't dare to do what she did so STFU.

    Guessing no one actually watched or looked at her opponent..

    She's 3-7 and like 0-4 in her last 4 ffs.. and she clearly won the first two rounds vs Shields

    WMMA just like womens boxing is trash

    Shields struggled to beat a soccer mom and you guys are saying **** like "you go girl/great job"
    Why wouldn't people be praising her? Even MMA fans are. What makes this woman any different than Shields. The hell you calling her a soccer mom for. Some of yall are not making any damn sense.

    Different kinds of athletes. Boxing does require more speed and reflexes but MMA requires more strength because of the grappling. And grappling, kicks etc drains the tank much quicker than punching. Coordination is arguable because kicks are a much more complex movement than punches.
    True. MMA fighters look like they could bench press, squat more than boxers. There's not that many stocky boxers, a lot of stocky MMA fighters.

    I agree; Who was also old and well past his prime too. Regardless, you are right though. It was a cash out fight for James Toney who didn't even bother to train or win.

    That was more her opponent being ****ing awful than anything she consciously did to escape it. Giving up mount to go for an armbar in the first place is pretty dumb, and Elkin applied it terribly, both her legs are above Claressas shoulders ffs, meaning far less leverage and control. Then having slowed it down and watched it multiple times it just looks like Elkin lets go of the arm lol. Like theres no real technical reason why Shields should have gotten out of that by her own volition, she puts her forearm behind Elkins knee to create space but that alone shouldnt get you out of an armbar normally.

    I dont think it was fixed or anything, but Elkin was just really really ****ing bad. How that chick is supposed to be a brown belt I dont know.
