She has huge potential. She's super strong and is great at punching. If she can learn how to kick and wrestle she could be unstoppable.

She scrong as fu*k! Her physical strength helped her out big time. She’s new at this like barely trained a couple months not even a year. If she does hella bjj and takedown defense she could be a problem. No woman comes close to being able to stand up with her

Man I want to see this outta Shields



That punching power was vicious. The little inside punches Woodley was wiffing on would land with Shields and knock the f*ght outta any female in the UFC.

She need to keep working with Jon Jones on takedown defense


She said she's interested in getting the black belt in bjj, so she's only gonna get better on the ground

Great first match. Now, she just needs to work on that ground game.....and how to check those leg kicks.

If Clarissa used inside side kicks on the girls leading leg that would've be a great strategy.

Props to her and I hope she does good but she needs so much work and I'm not sure she has the time to do it. She's going to continue boxing and she's such a big name I'm sure the PFL is going to try and give her bigger f*ghts asap. But her td defense was really bad and her bottom game is really bad. She doesn't stand a chance against any of the top 20 around her weight class right now, which is completely understandable. If she could take 2 years to work on strictly MMA and not have to f*ght any really experienced f*ghters she could definitely be one of the best, if not the best.

Alright time to talk about what nobody else is
Britney elkins was on a three f*ght losing streak.
Clarissa, as impressive as she was would not do the same against someone on a winning streak. If anything, Saturday was a reminder she has a hell of a long way to go. From learning how to properly cage walk/reversals to making sure she does not get one of those olympic winning arms snapped in half. It happens and can happen. But as of now, I'm team shields.

yeah I think she can get there, but even experienced MMA f*ghters dont check those half the time. Adesanya was tearing dudes legs up last night. Can def make a difference in a f*ght. But I was very impressed overall though.

Armbars, kimoras, americanas, etc all designed to break arms

That's off the top of my head and I haven't been to the gym in 10 years

Edit:Omoplata

Praying for the best though
We need a female champion

Regardless of what Elkins' current form is like, she has more experience in that discipline and more technical know how. Shields beat an experienced pro w/a limited skill set and no previous experience. Those are building blocks, not the finished product. Being critical of what she hasn't learned in her first attempt at this is kinda pointless.

Celebrating her strengths and win while not acknowledging her weakness is how has beens get caught in the moment
While she's far from a has been, if and when she f*ghts out of her league against an opponent that hasn't lost, if properly prepared you won't have to say I did not see that coming.

A lot of athletes get caught up in the moment celebrating instead of highlighting their weaknesses and working on them.

The fans who don't acknowledge them are usually the ones to jump ship as soon as they lose

Winning streak or not, Elkins has been training the ground stuff for over a decade... shields picked it up last year...sh*t she should get the chance to build her confidence and ground game against cans in her first few f*ghts at least

No denying that just not overhyping her
Any of her trainers or coaches would feel the same
While I'm sure everyone in her gym is congratulating her, I wouldn't be surprised if her coaches ain't letting her get her head too swole from all her...fans

Mike tyson has said plenty of times his coach was no yesman

Sorry for having opinions that make sense


Verses the opinions of those who have never been to an actual mma gym


Can guarantee her coaches are ready to bring her back down to earth


Seeing izzy cage walk and the other guy get his arm broken was enough to bring me back down and confirm my feelings
