    Brendan Schaub yesterday on "Below the Belt"

    Claims Holly Holm has a top 3 game against the cage male or female and is "One of the Greatest if not the greatest female fighter of all time."

    She's good, and imo has a FANTASTIC BODY, but this might be a stretch.

    She's not even close. She's lost against every top fighter she's faced....except for Ronda Rousey (the most overrated fighter of all time).

    Schaub posting should warrant a 3 day ban

    At least Jones made that claim when the hype was alive after she beat Rousey. But damn, did Schaub watch her fight against Shevchenko?

    In all fairness, even though Schaub and Rogan like to call everyone and their mom "one of the greatest of all time", she's definitely in that conversation. I mean people lose their minds about how "amazing" and "dominant" Ronda was and look at what Holly did to her. Looked like easy work for Holly, so this isnt an unreasonable claim.

    She is in the top 5 IMO for sure.

    More of an indication of WMMA. Its not a sport that's been around long and it has had an absence of talent.

    Can't disagree, who else has the same credentials in boxing and MMA?

    No disrespect to RR, Cyborg, Rijker, Braekhus etc.

    She's won 2 of her last 6 fights. One against a woman making her UFC debut and the other a Bantamweight journeyman (Journeywoman)

    It's in the book
    According to her introduction last event, she's 18 time boxing champ, so she's the best boxer in history apparently.

    It's a shame we went through that blip of losing 2 or 3 fights to bums.

    One of the greatest female fighters? How many are above her? Cyborg, maybe JJ?

    Holly is certainly top tier. I'm ok with "one of"
