  • Didn’t think it was a great performance necessarily by Price, but I do think she’s going to be VERY difficult to beat and I do expect her, like she said, to get better. She will not challenge Shields, but I think she beats any welterweight right now, including Sandy Ryan, at her best.

  • Ugly fight. McCaskill had no idea and her corner seemed to start the excuse machine revving up by the midpoint of the fight. This fight made me happy rounds are only 2 minutes

    • Women’s rounds should be about 30 seconds and never shown on live TV. Women’s MMA fights are FAR more exciting than women’s “boxing”. It’s like watching paint dry.

  • Hopefully this is the END of Jessica McCaskill!!!! By far the worse of the worst in all of Women’s Boxing

  • RICK RAMOS riding this until the wheels fall off! At this age and with this performance, hopefully Jessica RETIRES!!
