    The girl fights are usually crap, but i too have sparred with a few chicks. Most suck but i guarantee that Holly Holm would kick the crap out of most non fighter males. If youve never trained a fight sport you are useless in a fight. A low Level male fighter would destroy her of course.

    I get your point. I have a buddy who's brother is a beast body builder at 5'9 205. Even he believed Rousey hype few years back. Lol I remember stating I'm 20lbs overweight and I'd destroy her, didn't understand how he could think he didn't have a chance. The power of propaganda.

    Floyd Mayweather rants after UFC 257: ‘Con artist’ Conor McGregor shows you racism still exists

    https://www.mmafighting.com/2021/1/...-conor-mcgregor-shows-you-racism-still-exists

    Woe is me...

    They sure don't like it when white guys act cocky and arrogant, that's the real double standard eh.

    More interestingly in my opinion:

    Look at all the "great white hope" comments on the comments section, is Conor the only white fighter to have realized success? No there are countless. Is Dustin not a "great white hope"? His tan disqualifies him?
    Most white success causes a lot of salt because the world of color does not like whites and sees white men as inherently weak, (which they reconcile at the same time with historical oppression).
    Whites knocking out negroes and taking belts which happens routinely causes a deep-seated insecurity to be inflamed. If a fighter is particularly hated they may even root for other whites fighters against him E.G. Dustin Vs. Conor.

    Of course this doesn't mean all nonwhites always root against whites, just most. The comments section is an insight into the psychology of this.

    Mcgregor fans don’t give a crap about the supposed struggle of blacks. They are out in the world living their own lives. Blacks have got to get past this idea that whites think about them because we don’t. It’s not a good or bad thing necessarily....it’s just the truth. Blacks think they know white people and they are utterly clueless on what we are like. We don’t spend our days thinking about black people because we don’t care what they are doing. We are going to work and living our own lives like everyone else. This is one of the reasons why white people largely ignore the constant whining from the black community and the left.

    Mayweather got the two biggest purses in boxing history by wearing the Black hat and loving it. Now he wonders why he isn't loved by the fans after he has gone to jail for beating women, said homophobic things, racist things against Asians(probably Whites but I don't recall any off hand).

    It's a classic case of the kettle calling the pot black. If he was loved by the fans he would have probably been Pacman and his act would have worn out years earlier and his two 9 figure purses would have never happened.

    PS, his calling McGregor, McLoser is rich too. Gayfeather protected his "undefeated" record near the end of his career and was very selective who he fought when he was at welterweight. McGregor went up and fought the equivalent of a boxing supermiddleweight for no reason but he was bored and wanted to shut Diaz's mouth. Mayweather would have never done that to anybody chirping at him in boxing at 168 pounds.

    Holm would destroy most young males, only maybe a brown belt type with some fundamental boxing knowledge would beat her. I think the women that fought on this card were the flyweights which are much smaller than her.

    As you go down in weight strikes are less effective against a standard 180 pound man. I would say strikes from woman this small would be more to scare off muggers, sexual assaulters/rapists. A throat punch, eye poke, genital strike is quite effective against an untrained man of this size.

    She is 135 lbs, granted she’s pretty shredded and dehydrated at that weight. You can cherry pick weak men to make a case, but Im talking about the “average able bodied fighting aged male”. Like any normal dude, who hasn't been neutered as a 60 hour a week desk jockey. An Oil and gas guy, steel mill, construction, police, firemen, non Air Force military member (sorry fella’s).

    Now if they allowed an equally skilled Holms at like 185 lbs or higher my bravado goes out the window (but they dont) Weight classes are there for a very good reason. Holms or Rousey being portrayed as the toughest women on the planet is a joke. Its as stupid as saying Loma or Gayweather could take out Fury or the Klitschko’s. There is some big Siberian bull dyke out there right now who isnt getting a chance to fight, because Dana would rather sell you on the idea of tiny stick figure woman as the best.

    I only mentioned Holm or the Brazilian Mulatto because they are 150 plus when they hit the ring and can punch. To be honest I thought the female fighters were 115 pounders which would make it a joke beyond a joint strike or a throat punch to fend off an average male.

    PS I am old enough to remember the Bruce Lee debate versus Ali and this would be similar to the topic we are talking about as Lee would have spotted Ali close to 100 pounds.

    This video sums up this debate...

    I got in my share of fights with (mostly black) girls in high school (the joys of diversity bussing). Girls who outweighed me by 50 pounds weren't that tough, especially when that extra 50 was all fat, as it typically was.

    Wife no.2 couldn't hit hard but she could throw a beer as hard as Nolan Ryan threw a fastball and it hurt all the way to the bottom of my feet. I sure don't miss her.

    McGregor lost his mobility and his chin is long gone. Poirier is not Hercules. His skills are average but he's tough and can pull an upset.
