Claressa Shields is set to make her MMA debut at 2021 PFL 4 on Thursday evening.

We have seen boxers make the switch from the ring to the cage before with varying results, but Shields (0-0) believes her skills will translate when she faces Brittney Elkin (3-6) in a lightweight bout at the Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, N.J.

Perhaps the highest-profile boxer to switch over to MMA, not to mention in the middle of her prime as well, decided to find out what will happen in a fight where she has to worry about kicks, takedowns, and much more.

Ultimately, what should the expectations be for Shields in her MMA debut? Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of George Garcia, Danny Segura, and Matthew Wells weighed in with host John Morgan.
