    Both agree to fight in 2017.., Braekhus suggests two fights, one in Europe and one in the States. As a fan of combat sports, I would like to see this fight. Pure boxing skill goes to Cecilia, but Cyborg has good hands and power.

    If the UFC ends up getting her exclusively under contract, she's not boxing anybody.

    the ufc fucked up re: cyborg for YEARS now. fuck 'em. if they're pussyfooting around with cyborg, she should feel free to take on other endeavors.

    and props to her, she fought a great (arguably the best) kickboxer knowing she'd likely lose, and now wants to fight the best boxer. she's not scared to challenge herself, unlike many other fighters.

    Cyborg doesn't have good hands at all, she's going to get absolutely clowned. Isn't Braekhus fighting that old woman that Holm beat like 10 years ago? Cyborg isn't going anywhere while she's under contract with the UFC.

    She's much bigger than many other fighters. She also doesn't have much of a division.

    She got clowned in kickboxing now she's going to get clowned in boxing, she has no credentials and she hasn't beaten anybody impressive in MMA.

    Rousey made weight. Cyborg wants those same fighters to move up in weight.

    Is that the reason why everyone in the 135lb division find excuses not to fight her when they clearly said they would at a catchweight?

    Just about every women currently fighting in the UFC 135lb division has fought in the 145lb division during there fight career. So whats the big deal of fighting at a catchweight? They clearly fear the Cyborg beat down why else would they run down to a division they know she can't possibly make.

    Cyborg has said no to anymore 140lbs fights.

    135lbs is a division with fights, a belt and exposure. 145 is complicated.

    They might feel like they're giving up too much size by competing against Cyborg. Maybe they want to chase the title. Maybe the money isn't right. I don't know, I'm not a fighter.

    Either way a fighter calling out fighters the weight class below and calling them scared, when that same fighter has both had trouble making 145 and been popped for PEDs, isn't a good look.
