    Looked her up, 11-0, won olympic gold twice, she calls herself the GWOAT..

    Leila Ali is 24-0, although she didn't do the olympics, thoughts on her? I never knew about her until this mma stuff, how great is she?

    MMA is a very young sport. WMMA, even more so. I guess she’s fighting someone tonight, though. Should be interesting.

    The talent disparity in womens combat sports. Is so vast. Really hard to suggest whos goat. You have 1 elite fighter generally. Fighting nothing but cans 95pct of the time.

    I don't know anything about Women's Boxing, but calling anyone a GWOAT with 11 fights is embarrassing, people did the same shit with Ronda lol

    She's dominant and highly ranked P4P (#1 or #2) but fights in a higher division where there's usually not much female talent. The Olympics are irrelevant when comparing her to older female boxers as it's only been a thing since 2012 so they wouldn't have had a chance to do it.

    id say holly has a argument to be the gwoat since she has won world titles in both. Shields is attempting to do something holly has already done

    I find in most women's sports there tends to be one or two elite women who dominate the rest of the female competition. Though, that could change now that men are entering women's sports.

    Exactly. Traditionally, a female fighter would win her first fight and then tell Cyborg that she is coming for her belt.
