    Last time Cat fought a really young mid 20s prospect...she got ragdolled, like her opponent was in another league. She was literally crying after the fight. I thought "Man, I guess her time is up...the 135 lb womens' division has a new guard"

    I thought the UFC would give her an easy journey woman opponent. But no...she is fighting another much younger fighter in her physical prime.

    Poor Cat. They are using her as a gatekeeper.

    It's like how Mirko Cro Cop kept getting booked against much younger rising stars and got brutal loss after loss.

    It's a good fight, Anderson got ragdolled by Holm and Zingano has some pretty slick TD's. If she gets Anderson down its a wrap imo she's gonna beat the hell outta her, she will also be game on the feet.

    It makes me sad that Cat hasn't performed more consistently. She seems like a nice girl, and she's been through some shit. Hoping she takes the W

    Cat is going to destroy Anderson though.

    Holly Holm looked like Khabib when she fought Anderson. Cat is on another planet in terms of grappling.

    Anderson's awkward, unathletic, and trains at a boxercise franchise. Her coaches are far from great and her training partners are part time exercisers (not fighters) just doing it to lose a few pounds.

    Unless Cat is having major mental issues at fight time, she should win this pretty easily.

    Cro Cop -

    Junior Dos Santos
    Brendan Schaub
    Gabriel Gonzaga
    Alistair Overeem (ok this was in Japan, not in the UFC)
    Frank Mir (when he was 30 years old)
    Cheick Kongo

    Cheick Kongo at the time was a guy people thought would become a killer in the UFC. Gabriel Gonzaga was like 3-0 in the UFC...fans slept on him because he had one really boring fight. Brendan Schaub was actually taken seriously in 2010/2011. At that time, he hadn't suffered so many knock outs (just Roy Nelson at the TUF Finale).

    I forgot about the Anthony Perosh and Mostapha Al Turk fights because Al Turk was UFC 99, I was just anticipating UFC 100...and the Anthony Perosh fight...wasn't that in Abu Dhabi Anderson Silva vs. Demian Maia and BJ Penn vs. Frankie Edgar? Such a stacked card.

    I have no sympathy for someone who thinks she's a 10 when she's a 5 and takes years off at a time.

    Okay I see what you are saying..just to clarify...I like watching her fight. I know she has been through a lot with her husband dying, but she has done well for herself. To me she is the anti-Ronda Rousey.

    Even though I like her as a fighter...I'm under no delusion that she is some GOAT of women mma. That's where my OP was coming from.

    Cat has the right mix of looks and crazy.

    Hope she can show some of her violent self again.
