    I would have said No yesterday (because of all her incessant whining) but it looks like we got a fight at 135 now!

    WMMA is so embarrassingly weak there is no one I follow all that heavily.

    But yeah, I suppose so. At least she WANTS to fight her toughest challenge. Instead of blatantly ducking it, like Ronda.

    I don't dislike her, but her "style" of fighting lacks what I enjoy about the fighters I like most. Namely technical brilliance.

    my initial thought behind it is the same criticisms people have about ronda,shes fun to watch,but the people she fights arent good enough to do anything to her. The carano fight was somewhat exciting cos of the moments where carano had mount,but not counting the kickboxing with with baars,she just crushes other women with brute force...and while there is appeal to that,its less exciting than seeing ronda's grappling technique and evolving overall game. Thats just my take.

    I was a fan of watching that Baars woman beat the fuck out of her.

    I love statements like this.
    Where do you stand on Anderson Silva, champ? How bout Wanderlei?
    Are they mma legends?
    Or just steroid cheaters...

    Fan? No, not really, but I really didn't have a problem with her until she started yapping at Rousey with no intention of keeping her own word and dropping to 135.

    She got busted for roids once, but that's happened to a lot of fighters and I've generally let it go in the long run.

    I like Cyborg more when she is fighting than I do when she is talking.

    I do feel for her though. She is in a tough spot. She's at the top of her career right now, but still hasn't really cashed in. She doesn't want to get smaller, but smaller is where the money is. There is no one left for her at 145, but her instinct always seems to be to work to get bigger and stronger.

    I wish there was a talent-rich female 1555 division, because Cyborg would be a legend.

    No. Roids, plus 6lb wet bikini.

    I respect her. She seems like a decent person. but i'm indifferent to her career. She's not really a technical mastermind on the feet or ground.

    Not a fan, though I prefer her to Ronda.

    I believe Ronda needs to fight Cyborg in order to prove she's the best, but I think Ronda would win that fight.
