    Cyborg can make 139lb (UFC 198) so why wouldn't she fight at bantamweight?

    Scared. So she bulked up even more to make it impossible. Of course, all she has to do is drop the bulk she somehow manages to maintain in a cardio intensive sport, and the cut would be achievable. We all know that will never happen, though.

    She never got down to that low. Even 10 years ago, she was doing these catchweight fights at 150. It took her a while to make 145 to fight carano.

    There was a point in her career when she could have, but that's loooong since passed.

    Frankie’s got heart though and she wouldn’t finish him. I see Frankie reversing her 30 minutes in and getting the finish.

    She has a very low bodyfat%, And is probably not the best weightcutter. Not everyone is like DC or Khabib. Holly was bigger than Cyborg when they fought.

    I am just happy we get to see her fight the 135 lb girls.
