    You're a pitiful liar.

    Machida (one of your examples) started fighting in 2003. That same year, Randy Couture was paid 175,000 for beating Tito Ortiz. If that money is 'next to nothing', what is 5k? That was 14 years ago. I'm comparing it to a sport that's existed even longer than MMA. Baars needs about 170,000 more dollars to match what the UFC paid to one of its top stars back during its days of relative obscurity.

    Not sure I have to tell you anything...but since you asked. I was responding to the thread which was specifically about Mayweather vs McGregor and the parallels (or in my opinion, differences) with Cyborg vs Baars. If we are talking about any random fight involving above named fighters as you did, then well...I dunno...seems like Conor came in quite a bit heavier than his opponents when he fought at 145.

    THIS.

    I don't know wtf TS is chatting about haha. I bashed Cyborg regularly for it and he was obviously on steroids for it, as hes been caught red handed cheating on steroids many times. But still got his ass whopped

    Also, I've read, that it was her biggest payment ever, so imagine how lucrative is fighting muay thai as female (and even avarage male). I know about Baar's payment, I also I've read about Jedrzejczyk in her muay thai career, that she fought quite few times for impressive money like 100 euro.
    You can't really compare muay thai to boxing or even mma. Money is shit.

    No, Baars IS the Mayweather of Women's MT. They are equivalent for the purpose of this discussion.

    I'd say not getting finished IS slightly better if not a whole lot better.

    Except for the round or two on the judges scorecards for Cyborg but don't let facts get in the way of your lies.

    This proves once again you don't watch or understand fights, you Google fight results and watch gifs.

    Oh so you can't prove it? Thought so, how embarressing.
    Reread my comment, and understand the first bum to KO Baars was just cut from the UFC roster for losing her debut... against Davis lmao
    I mean.. if Baars was only submited or decisioned in MMA sure i'd give her a break, but all those stopage losses came came from strikes... against MMA bums!

    I wouldnt have replied to ur shit opinion if u didnt say someone got "exposed", she did better than she was supposed to in her third MT fight against a world champion!!! Her other fights she won pretty well.

    I guess the mods yellow carded u for a reason, troll.

    I read your comment. Don't need to reread. Baars destroyed Cyborg and the gifs, the fight, and the lopsided fight results prove it.

    Baars never fought Davis in the UFC, you simpleton. That was Cindy Dandois. And Alexis Davis is actually one of the more seasoned and accomplished fighters in WMMA

    I've no idea if Guyborg took time out as a champ/holding up a division to pursue a kickboxing match. The difference between Conor and Guyborg is that Conor is relevant and his division is important. Guyborg isn't important and no one gave a crap whether she held up a division or not.

    Conor does a boxing match and pisses off legit mma fans because they want to see him test himself against a legit contender and mma is just awesome in general to watch. Guyborg, her org back then and all of wmma is not important or legit or worth crying about
