    This was right when the fight just started. Literally Cyborg's second strike and dropped her. Then you see Cyborg just backs away and lets her get back up with plenty of space. Why? Normal Cyborg would have been all over that.

    Cyborg was clearly taking it easy in this fight to not scare away the fishies (ie. Holm, GDR).

    It is was quite obvious. No female wants to fight Cyborg. Cyborg is fighter. Most of these other women are just cross-fitters taking advantage of a new market sport.

    Evinger ate more bombs in that fight than most have to endure tbeir entire career in WMMA. I'm sure cyborg didn't want to risk getting clipped. She wanted that title. Evinger had tons of heart and balls to match.

    She's still the most exciting thing in WMMA though. We complain about her crushing cans, but it's still very exciting to watch. Like when Mike Tyson was in a downward spiral, he was setup with a bunch of tune-up fights vs. a bunch of nobodies. That was still fun to watch.

    Like that feeling that someone may die in the ring.

    I think they're friends or at least friendly. They've both been in Invicta for a very long time. And Invicta holds their events in warehouses + folding plastic chairs and shit. Should be very closed knit there, esp. w/it being all female.

    Cyborg probably really appreciated how Evinger stepped up after that other chick ran away scared. It sucks to train hard, cut weight, etc. and then finding out your fight is cancelled + no pay (or just a little pay). Even fighting for FREE at the lowest amateur level for a cheapass trophy, the feeling is horrible.
