    So it'll be at least a year till her mma debut, but apparently she's been training boxing for several years now along with her world class BJJ game.

    I would love to see her fight Ronda Rousey, granted it would be a few years before Kyra would be able to even get to the UFC let alone challenge Ronda, but that would be an amazing ground battle.

    The best Judo practitioner vs probably the best BJJ practitioner in mma. That would be an amazing ground fight and it's been a proven seller in the past (BJJ vs Judo).

    For the grappling alone I would love to see that fight, plus that gives them both time to shore up their stand up games and by then that may be entertaining as well.

    What about the rest of Sherdog?

    EDIT: Plus Kyra revs my engine, she's a babe! SCHWING!!

    If she is better looking than Ronda I will root for her.

    At the moment Ronda would probably beat her in an MMA match. A grappling match would be more interesting at this point.

    I would definately agree with that. 100%

    Give her a few years to develop a semi-decent resume/record and develop the rest of her mma game and I think it would be super entertaining.

    Kyra's been saying she'll jump to MMA for years now. There are pics of her working on her boxing with Claudio Coelho. At this point though, I'll believe it when I see it.

    Depending on her her cut to 135 later this month goes, BJJ champion Talita Nogueira (6-0) will probably be in the UFC before too long.

    Honestly haven't heard of her, hows she related to the Nogs? Wife? Daughter? Niece? Or is she at all?

    Doesn't Kyra compete in a lighter division (around the 120s in memory) and is currently pregnant?

    She's about 125 I think, so she'd have to go up a bit. Plus she's been teasing about MMA for god knows how long.

    That being said.

    With womens MMA in the state it's in, Kyra could be brought directly into the UFC and maybe win 1-2 fights and get a shot at Ronda.

    Ronda would brutalize her tho.

    Kyra would be a fairly average sized 115 pounder. There's no chance of making this fight - sadly

    Kyra has no MMA experience. To be honest, I just want to watch Kyra take a shower or something rather than watch someone punch her in the face.

    that would do alotta buys i think. So much marketing potential with Kyra + the queen of MMA and hollywood, Ronda... UFC would bank.

    Id love to see a fight like that. Id be rooting for Kyra.
