    She has finally found some fighters she might be able to stop.

    Boxing rewards the fastest reflexes, coordination, stamina more than MMA. Elite boxers are better athletes than elite MMA fighters. Shields looks like a better athlete than anyone else in the women's MMA game right now. Just needs time, that was a very close call.

    You actually see that fairly often. The girl had a piss-poor attempt at an arm-bar which failed immediately.

    However, unlike Shields; Tony was old, washed up, out of shape and past his prime. He was 42 years old then.
    Toney was also in there with a former multi-division UFC champ, nowhere near a regional-level can like Shields fought. He obviously cashed out though, regardless ... tapped quick and cashed a check.

    I never would have guessed from the other 50 posts in a row you just made.
    Just continue to be grudgingly envious of her success. Hopefully, you will become a winner someday!

    It's just too bad that Logan Paul refused to do to Floyd Mayweather what Shield's did to her very first MMA opponent which was having the will to win.

    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.
