Kayla Harrison thinks Claressa Shields ’ performance in her MMA debut makes it clear that fighting her would make no sense. Shields, a two-time Olympic gold medalist in boxing and multiple time boxing champion, faced a bit of early adversity when she squared off against Brittney Elkin (3-7) in a non-regular season lightweight bout at 2021 PFL 4. She rallied to win by third-round TKO. Elkin was able to secure full mount multiple times on the ground, but Shields was eventually able to sprawl in Round 3, raining down punches until the referee stopped the fight. While Harrison lauds Shields for showing heart in her successful MMA debut, she thinks the way the fight played out indicates that she still has ways to go.
