She just answered "why don't male boxers come to MMA" - because they don't have to. They get paid. You have Fury, Wilder, Joshua, Spence, Garcia, Porter, Brook, Davis, Lomachenko, the other Garcia, Pac Man, Davis, Ruiz, Golovkin, Canelo, BJS, Inuoue, the Charlo twins, Badou Jack, Lopez, etc., who are going to make at least $3 mill per fight. Then there are the guys who are gonna make a quarter mill to a mil per fight just to be a body in there. They don't need MMA.

Top men in boxing have no reason to come over to MMA, they make 5-10x more then the top athletes in the UFC. Connor fought Floyd and made 4x as much money as he made in all of his UFC career in 1 fight. Claressa on the other hand has proven she can beat anyone in boxing and they still wont give her a $1 mill match. Womens MMA has more oppurtunity for money then Womens boxing. Its the complete opposite for men. which is why men never cross over.

I agree she has that potential for sure but her argument for wanting to do so chasing the money, and is it going to be better pay as an MMA fighter for her? I really think that she can be and MMA champion in the rankings high up challenging for about so on and so forth, but This belief that she has of being the greatest women's champion of all time, there was only one Muhammad Ali and a lot of fighters in combat sports forget that, and I say this because it seems that Fame and recognition comes first before hard work and actually winning for a lot of these new generational fighters, not all but certainly a hell of a lot of them and Clarissa Shields, who has actually proved herself in boxing, should pull on the reins a bit in her endeavor into MMA. There were many other women who were African-American that made significant strides once in a lifetime achievements in the 70s 80s, so I think it's very hard for anyone to call themselves the greatest of all time and a lot of people are trying to do that. The best thing I think Clarissa Shields can do right now and this would be to help her brand is to get a professional spokesperson to handle any interviews and coach her on how to handle those interviews because they are a little cringy... Just saying

@New World Grover I mean she wasn't a good fighter though lol, cool she came back but it took her 3 rounds to get rid of elkins who is 3-6. She has a LONG way to be in the UFC... Also she needs to drop to 145 if her goal is to make it to the UFC.

Man she doesn't have what it takes to be great in MMA. To early and not enough skill and training. She should've did like jake paul and call out dumb ass UFC fighters to box. Shields definitely will get f... up fighting someone in the UFC with real skills. Her first fight that she won was against a bum a real bum a person that has no ability to finish anyone, her opponent cant beat cake mix!

marklower007

marklower007 I dont see it ending well for her once she fights a decent fighter. I didnt like what I heard on Rogan's. She isnt in jitz class getting dominated by every1 and rolling with every1 and learning those lessons. She only does privates with wink. She isnt in there rolling with every1 like a normal student. She also doesnt believe in breaking some1 down to build them up. That might work in boxing where she has all that natural ability to lean on. I just dont think a totally green person when it comes to mma is going to grow as much having the camp and coaches treat her with all this special treatment as compared to some1 who walks in the gym and gets treated like any1 else and gets pushed and tested without worrying about scaring her off. She isnt surrendering control and letting the coaches train her like they would a normal fighter coming in to train. And that's not going to help her in my opinion.

Great interview! Tough challenge. To spend your whole life only doing boxing then switch to MMA in 7 months!!!!! That's crazy! For all the people talking about boxers being cowards, the problem is male boxers make way more money boxing than MMA fighters. There is no reason for them to help build the profile of MMA. Boxing isn't mainstream enough itself. Build boxing back to where it was. But back to the GWOAT! Clarressa is a wonderful person and a complete competitor. I'm riding with you!!!!! Let's goooooooo!

Seems like her biggest challenge is how will she handle a loss like she stated for other fighters. She's lost once in 15 years!! No one in their right mind is standing with her. Eventually she gets submitted or can't walk after a dozen leg kicks. To be able to take a few L's while she's evolving is going to be tough. Big girls like Kayla Harrison will test her. But great addition to the sport. I'm looking forward to her competing Goodluck!!
