She does not have to. This woman has nothing to prove, and there is a distinct issue with fighting men because of the chivalry that we want to keep up in society. She is not going to fight a man because it is not fair to either parties. If she beats a guy in a match, he will be crushed forever for losing to her. If she loses, everyone will say that she was a fake even though she is the most dominant female fighter of all time.

Gerald McClellan was one of the most vicious fighters in the history of boxing. McClellan had one of the best knockout records in boxing history as well. In his prime McClellan had a record of 31-wins with 29- knockouts. His future looked bright, and Gerald McClellan was on his way to becoming a superstar.
On February 25th, 1995, Gerald McClellan’s life would change forever Brit remembers. McClellan was defending his WBC super welterweight championship against Nigel Benn. McClellan vs. Benn was a highly anticipated fight. Both fighters possessed devastating punching power. The fight lived up to everyone’s expectations.
The first round started with McClellan knocking Nigel Benn out of the ring. Miraculously, Nigel Benn made it to his feet, and he continued fighting. Gerald McClellan continued his assault, and he knocked Nigel Benn down again in the eighth round. Somehow, Nigel Benn got up once more, and he continued fighting.
The tenth round of the fight proved to be the final round of Gerald McClellan’s career. Nigel Benn knocked McClellan out with devastating punches, but there appeared to be more to the story.
After the fight, a blood clot was found in his brain. McClellan had emergency surgery to remove the blood clot, but he could not reverse the severe brain damage that he sustained.

Gennady Golovkin took on Martin Murray over the weekend. The fight proved to be exciting, and Martin Murray put on a tremendous display of heart. Murray lasted until the tenth round against the dangerous Russian. Golovkin has knocked out 19-opponents in a row, including Martin Murray.
The last person to have 19-consecutive knockouts in a row was Mike Tyson. Golovkin vs. Murray was an important victory for the talented Russian. Martin Murray fought toe to toe with Golovkin, and at moments he stunned Golovkin. However, Gennady Golovkin did not stop coming forward. Murray was overwhelmed in the fight, and he went down several times before it was finally over.
After the fight, Gennady Golovkin had the advantage and called out Miguel Cotto. Golovkin vs. Cotto would be an excellent fight, but I doubt that it will take place. Cotto is an aging fighter, and he is a bit overmatched against the younger and stronger Russian. Gennady Golovkin has not been able to get a marketable opponent.
Golovkin will be around for a long time to come, and he is blazing a path of destruction along the way. For more information on Gennady Golovkin, visit Yahoo! Sports.
Looks like more athletes are getting creative with their back health, so that they can keep playing longer than longer. From what I’ve been reading, North American Spine has been really helping out.
North America Spine is a Dallas, Texas based center, renowned for its minimally invasive AccuraScope treatment procedure. The most popular North American Spine treatment procedures are used in treating symptoms and conditions affecting the thoracic, cervical and sacral regions of the spine. The symptoms include numbness in the limbs, neck pain and back pain from the hips and buttock down to the legs. The conditions that North America Spine treats include herniated discs, facet disease, radiculopathy, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, pinched nerve, sciatica, scar tissue, failed back surgery and foraminal stenosis, among other conditions.
The AccuraScope procedure, which is exclusive to North America Spine produces high precision diagnosis and treatment, that allows patients to recover quickly compared to other minimally invasive spine surgeries. The primary difference between the more traditional Laserscopic procedure and AccuraScope is that, the later procedure operates laterally using a natural spinal column opening. This allows the practitioner to perform both diagnosis and treatment of the lumbar path in one process. The benefits of AccuraScope Discectomy and Neural Decompression (D.N.D) treatment are numerous; they include use of a tiny incision, minimal scarring, reduced chances of pain reoccurrence and quick recovery.
Patients who have undergone this treatment also experience less pain after treatment. One such patient is James Phillips, an Arkansas patient. Phillips story was featured in a live MyFoxHouston telecast on January 29, 2015. He confessed that the AccuraScope procedure he underwent recently helped him realize his lifelong dream of bull riding. Before any patient is subjected to a spine surgery, the doctors at North America Spine must know what needs to be treated. An accurate determination is made by performing an MRI before seeking the patient’s second opinion. Patients can request a free MRI review by filling an online form found on the North American Spine website.
Statistically speaking, the success rates for patients who have undergone North America Spine procedures are very high. The center boasts an impressive 82% success rate, with 95% of the patients agreeing that they would gladly recommend this treatment to a friend. There are more than 8,000 patients who have successfully undergone AccuraScope treatment. This treatment is also popular because it is affordable to most people; a 5-Year out-of-pocket savings for patients who have undergone this procedure is estimated at $23,000. This highly successful treatment procedure is now in its 6th year, since it was first introduced.
Robbie Lawler will be defending his UFC welterweight title against Rory MacDonald at UFC 189. Lawler and MacDonald have met once before, and their first fight proved to be a close one. However, Robbie Lawler edged out Macdonald with a split decision victory. After their first meeting, Lawler went on to win the title from Johnny Hendricks.
MacDonald would need to use his length, and he would need to stay on the outside. Rory could pick apart Lawler, and make it a long night for the champion. Lawler vs. MacDonald 2 will be a good fight no matter which way it goes. For more information on UFC 189, visit Yahoo! Sports.
Frank Mir will be taking on Bigfoot Silva on February 22, in the main event of UFC Fight Night Bigfoot vs. Mir. This is a big fight for both competitors. Mir and Bigfoot have been looking lackluster as of late. Both fighters have suffered several crushing defeats, and a loss for either fighter could prove to be the end.
Mir vs. Bigfoot should be an exciting fight, and the big fans like Ray Lane can’t wait, but it could also end up being a one sided fight. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva is a giant man that possesses well rounded skills in all facets of mixed martial arts.
Frank Mir will have his hands full against the giant wonder. Mir is a former UFC heavyweight champion, but that is before he suffered a life threatening motorcycle accident. Since the accident, Frank Mir has never been the same. Bigfoot Silva may prove to be too much for the aging former champion. Frank Mir’s strength is his Jiu Jitsu, but Bigfoot is no slouch in that department either.
I predict that Bigfoot Silva will knock Frank Mir out before the third round. For more information on UFC Fight Night Bigfoot Vs. Mir, visit Yahoo! Sports.
