As much as I like Ronda I kind of want to see cyborg take this fight, show up 50lbs over and wreck shit.

If the fight goes down I think it will look like Mirr v Brock 2.

Technique will only get you so far fighting an ape.

Ronda will be adding another arm to her collection on the wall at home and I'll AV bet on it when this fight does finally happen

WAR ROUSEY

Yeah technique wont beat brute strength...It will beat strength but not when strength has a little practice in BJJ...Lets be honest who has Rousey fought with actual real strength like a man? Her opponents arent exactly weight lifters they are just regular girls who are trying to portray fighters...

Cyborg lives this stuff since when?...Thats my problem with womans MMA....Besides really 2 woman Cyborg and Rousey the rest just look like drunk girls at a bar...I could really care less about any womans MMA and quite frankly I think it hurts the sport..This is my opinion...

I doubt cyborg even makes weight cut
I still think this should headline fox card in April
Help get women's MMA going mainstream in Ufc
Machida vs hendo main event sounds just as good
Add a Diaz vs kos co main too

Womens MMA will take years upon years to actually become mainstream if ever...

As hard as it is for people to accept MMA....The common man just doesnt like watching women fight....

I think to sway people to MMA there needs to be maybe an intro show before events on Fox that goes over techniques and fighters backgrounds...The fighters with degrees mostly. The technique can help avearge people know its like a chess match than a barbaric fight...

but the real truth is most dictionaries refer to irregardless as not standard and incorrect...and regardless is actually the proper use...

So you really dont know anything...

So why the obsession with me?

As interesting as this fight is the rest of the card needs to be stacked or I see this event bombing with the casual fan.

Bingo.

And I think UFC brass know this. I expect every card with a female bout to be stacked.

Which is good for us all

I hope Cyborg destroys her Anderson Silva style, can't stand her personality anymore.

Exactly..

I think it takes a lot away from the other great fight with Henderson and Machida....

I would like to know is there anyone here that wants to see a 1 round armbar over 5 rounds of Machida and Hendo?

I can handle the Rousey Show here and there but I think theres only two fights worth watching...Rousey Cyborg and Rousey McCann...

IMO I would rather watch Beltran or Maldonado fight anyone than a womens championship fight...

nothin against our female fighters but hope this doesnt make it as the main even. i just cant get as excited about woman's MMA quite enough to have it as the main even. im still on the fence about who to pick still
