Cristiane Santos, aka Cris Cyborg, will take on Gina Carano on August 15 in what Strikeforce is promoting as the biggest fight in the history of women's mixed martial arts. One of the big reasons that Cyborg vs. Carano is such a big fight, of course, is that Carano has become a star and a sex symbol beyond just the world of MMA. But Cyborg has a message for Carano on that count.

I'm not sure if Randy will let you have your way with Gina just because she's unconscious...if that's what you're insinuating.

well i would hope not. although my way would not be what you think it is, rather my way would be trapping her in a box and hiding her Raiders of the Lost Arc style

This makes me wonder, are they allowed to allowed to attack each others boobage? and if so maybe this is why so many female mma fighters have none..

Cardio will win this fight.Big edge to Gina.She got the looks,the training.If she has the cardio she should win.If Cyborg is patient and shoots,i could see her gnp to a stoppage.Not sure why my heart says Cyborg,and my brain says Gina.Hurry tell my girl i'm thinking with the right head for a change!!!!

Gina has no shot. she is going to learn real fast just how dangerous a real fighter is. looks should have nothing to do with MMA at all and i will be dancing with glee as she gets KTFO. she embodies everything that is wrong with today's society and she will be feeling all of those extra pounds when she goes crashing to the mat

I'm curious to know how you draw that comparison. I think I see where you're going, but I'm not really sure.

I wouldn't give Gina any respect if she hadn't proven herself in Muay Thai matches that were far from glamorous all over the world. If she was just a glory hound, and only did it for the recognition of her looks then I'd be right there with you. I honestly don't think she does, though.

I do understand your frustration with her weight cutting, and the fact that she gets a pass every time. I totally understand it, actually, and I'm right there with you. If that's what you were getting at, then by all means- I'm with you.

However, as a fighter, I recognize her skill. It's not like she's totally lacking in the talent department.
