Claressa Shields MMA debut Thursday

The MMA debut of two-time Olympic gold medalist and three-division boxing world champion Claressa “GWOAT” Shields will begin tomorrow in Atlantic City. Shields will face jiu-jitsu specialist Brittany Elkin on ESPN2.

Also on the card is another boxer. Middleweight “Cassius” Clay Collard meets Joilton Lutterbach. Collard made some waves last year with three consecutive wins over unbeaten fighters, but he later faltered and lost two straight.

  • They could have picked someone with just a bit of experience, rather than someone 3-6, but this should be ok for now. I’m pretty sure since both Amanda Nunes and Cyborg weight about 145, Shields should come down at a catch weight and challenge one of these two.

  • Laila Ali was afraid to fight Ann Wolfe, and Claressa is afraid to fight Savannah Marshall.

    Claressa is too much of a coward to face Marshall. That is why she is running to the MMA, like a little bitch.

    Claressa, stop acting like a child. Put on your big girl pants, and face Marshall. Katie Taylor has courage. You clearly do not.
