Cyborg all of a sudden seems fine with facing a 135lber...

    What happened to the impassioned speech about building a division, opponents having to fight ranked fighters in the 145lb division before facing her, not fighting against natural 135lbers etc?

    Now that she's not facing Nunes but instead the unknown Kunitskaya all these concerns have miraculously vanished. How does it make any logical sense to think it's ok to fight a unknown 135lber who recently lost to Tonya Evinger but be all up in arms about facing the 135lb UFC champion.

    If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and sounds like a duck - it's most probably a duck

    You expect honesty from someone who is the poster-girl for PED use in MMA?

    Cyborg would be a lot easier to like if she didn't always try to get the easy fights despite clearly being the baddest woman on the planet. She should be calling out the best fighters and big fighters in other discipilines. WMMA pays a hell of a lot better than most women's combat sports these days.

    It's a late notice, put together whatever the hell is possible type of situation. She saved the card.

    Ugh. I can't stand her.

    All Cyborg wants is mismatches, never a challenge.

    Save the card? For who? Nobody outside a couple of shady wme execs wants to see this fight. At the very least it shouldn't be headlining a ppv

    Cyborg is a pretty good draw, And has a lot of fans/haters And casuals that Are interested. I am sure the card will do better than several other UFC cards. I agree it is not the best ppv, but it will do.

    I am not following WMMA, but I do like a good Cyborg fight.

    Probably because she got offered a good chunk of change to Dana to save the card

    This will be completely disregarded only to further bash her actions.

    Short notice but shit matchmaking. Another WMMA fight where top ranked fighter gets UFC nobody - think Shevchenko. Since Joe Silva gone and WME taken over there have been some seriously questionable matchups. Don't blame Cyborg. Picture this, your sitting home, phone rings, some guy says you want $200k. Uh no thanks that sounds too easy, I'll just stay home. THIS is A JOB, get paid.

    What 145ers do the UFC have that are currently lining up to fight her?
