    Clarissa Shields is a pro boxer who wants to fight in cage fighting ...


    <31>

    Is boxing so poor they can't afford to pay her so she is forced to do a brutal sport like MMA?

    Then you got Tyson Fury. The uncrowned champ, after beating Wilder. Here's what he had to say ...

    "I've been training with Darren Till and I've got an offer from Conor McGregor to be trained by him, so [an MMA bout] will be something that I'm very interested in," Fury said.

    Shit like this makes me SICK. Canelo was the only one who knew what was up when he said:


    Canelo is wise. He knows he don't want none of this:

    MMA is fighting with swords.

    Boxing is fencing.

    Boxers are looking for a payday and they know Dana has a soft spot for em because that's what he wanted to do in his early life.

    Stop whoring yourselfs out and stay in yo lane.

    I'd like to see some boxers in MMA, so as long as they train the other aspects as well.
    I do think though that the fact MMA-fighters are calling out boxers (for boxing fights) is beyond stupid.

    I highly doubt Shields can get a bigger paycheck in female boxing than she would against Nunes, makes sense for her to try to get that fight. Also she probably feels confident because she's quite bigger than Amanda. It probably won't be enough to beat Nunes in MMA, but that will still help for TDD.

    What are you talking about? We need boxers to fight in the UFC. We need to settle this debate.

    Other than Conor, has any boxer or MMA fighter at the height of their career fought in the other sport? There's so much talk and no action from these topics.

    This.

    For those that are new, that's Ray Mercer, a former HW champ ending Tim Sylvia in 20 seconds with the first punch of the fight... Merciless.

    [​IMG]

    Boxers, especially powerful punches will always be a threat, and the higher level they are, the less chance of getting close to them you have, increasing KO likelihood, the same as BJJ guys with No striking are a threat once they get hold of you...

    Tyson Fury is coming, he's going to beat Big Frank, and it's going to be a great day.

    EDIT: I know grapplers have a huge advantage, but Tyson is actually putting the work in, and has exceptional footwork. He's no Mercer or Toney, that's a hard guy to get near... Don't knock the guy.

    Ngannou would look like Royce Gracie on the mat compared to Fury

    you do realise a pure grappler beats a pure striker pretty much 9/10 times right?

    This is already well known and hence why the early UFC days existed so this whole topic is quite silly since we already know the truth. Its just a ego or pride thread
