Even Gina mounted Cyborg. When Rousey does that, it's all over for Cyborg.

But I agree, lots of out of competition testing, verification of hormone levels to normal female levels, etc. must be required before Strikeforce allows Cyborg to return. They need to build female MMA on healthy, feminine looking women not on roid freaks.

Why does Ronda need "pop" in her punches? How many women in MMA have "pop"? With her background, she just needs to have decent standup and an ability to take a punch without panicking.

Cyborg may be a completely different fighter next time we see her. She was like a guy, in many ways.

I don't think the change in her would be that extreme. She wasn't blatantly and excessively taking steroids like a bodybuilder - otherwise she would have been caught a long time ago. PEDs certainly make a difference but she is still going to dominate any woman she fights and you'll see that the next time she fights.

If Rousey can improve her stand-up 1000 percent then I would say she has a good chance of beating Cyborg ...


If Rousey can improve her stand-up she could be unstoppable ...

There are fights for Ronda at 135 that I want to see before Ronda/Cyborg happens.

Obviously the immediate title defense against Kaufmann in the summer some time, then I would love to see Ronda vs Sara McMann sometime in the end of 2012/early 2013.

At 135 and Cyborg off roids, I'd pick Rhonda every single time.
