Does anyone disagree that Holm is a bigger draw than every man who complains about pay?

    Holm is a way bigger draw than these jobber club grapplers & club boxers.

    Every man? Yes. I don't think she's a draw at all. Maybe if she had capitalized on the rousey win, but she didn't.

    What's with wankers on this site derisively referring to UFC fighters as 'club fighters'? It's rude. In MMA the fighters in the fighters aren't always going to be specialists in any discipline.

    Are the fucksticks who use such terminology world class at anything in their lives? If no, they should shut the fuck up and stop being obnoxious.

    It's the most annoying thing on this site.

    "Oh, Eddie Alvarez is a club fighter"

    What does that even mean?

    The guy was a multiple time world champion.

    Fuck out of here.

    Does the UFC pay you to talk shit about fighters who want a decent pay? Or are you just an idiot all by yourself?

    Regardless, all those "club fighters" are more successful at something than your dumb ass ever will be.

    Isn't she basically a boring fighter who doesn't win very often?

    What does that even mean? It means dickheads on Sherdog want to talk down about a guy who would whip their arse in a fight, and who stopped RDA when he was looking like an absolute juggernaut. It's pathetic and should count as fighter bashing.

    I think this is the first thing that has driven me to swear in about five years on here. It's ridiculous how disrespectful some arseholes are around here.

    (INB4 Y'all really have no clue who Eddie Alvarez is do you?)

    They should all compalin about money. Are you kidding me?

    The UFC signs 300 million deal and the fighters get ZERO! (This does not include ad buys).
    The UFC arbitrarily takes their sponsors and replaces it with whatever they want.

    I've never understood the "club fighter" label.
    If these guys have even made it up to a promotion that's internationally known, then they're not club fighters. They've destroyed club fighters and beaten solid pros before they even reach the UFC or other big show.

    She's only a so-called draw because she beat Rousey, Rousey was the real draw. It's like Nate Diaz, yeah he's a draw but only because he beat McGregor, if not for that fight no one would know who he is either. If some of these male fighters fought Conor or one of the bigger named male fighters they'd have a wider fan base as well.

    To add to that I don't think we can definitively say Holly is a draw.

    no disrespect to holm and her hilarious win but wmma should never headline an event... ever. i would gladly take a diaz, gsp or a solid middleweight that complains his ass of about being underpaid.

    She lost the next fight. That ruined her chance at being promoted as a dominant champ. That, and Ronda had a more marketable gimmick; she was the first "greatest of all-time" wmma fighter, and she talked a lot of trash.

    Had Cyborg - Ronda materialized a couple of years ago, it should definitely have headlined.

    Saying "ever" is stupid. Never say ever again.

    This.

    Had Holm dominated all of her opponents and/or KO'd them like she did Ronda, then I'm sure they would've capitalized on this, I'm sure she would've become a draw as it would've given the organization someone to invest in.

    Unfortunately she got choked out by Miesha in her following fight and then went on a losing streak that she just snapped.
