    Presumably at 135...

    Bethe Corriea (KO punch in the 1st)
    Cat Zingano (TKO punches and elbows in the 2nd)
    Alexis Davis (TKO punches in 1st)
    Sara Mcmann (TKO punches and knees in the 2nd)
    Meisha Tate (TKO punches in 3rd)


    I realize Ronda would run through all of Cyborg's opponents. The same I think can be said for Cyborg which makes the match so interesting. Would it be competitive? Probably not, but a glimmer of hope to really see a fighter bring the best out of Ronda is something to be hopeful for.

    She'd beat Bethe and probably Sara with the least difficulty. Cat, Alexis, and Meisha would give her a good fight and maybe win. Depends how well her cut is.

    She wrecks all of them at 145.

    No one knows how her body will respond at 135. Even at a weakened state only Cat and Miesha will give her any trouble.

    She would run through them just like Ronda did. RR vs CC is probably the hottest potential fight out there at the moment, in ALL of MMA. FFS, someone please make it happen while they are both at their prime, unlike the disappointment that was Chuck vs Wandy...if only that fight had occurred 2-3 years earlier.

    Cyborg has a rough fight vs Meisha and Cat at 135 and potentially loses.
    She beats them both at 145.

    Ronda beats her regardless of weight class the majority of the time. I'd say 6/10 at 145 and 8/10 at 135

    Zingano, Tate would beat her

    I think TS overestimates Cyborgs ability, recently she went 4 (nearly 5) rounds with Coenen
    Coenen got finished by Miesha in 3rd, who got finished by Zingano.. why would Cyborg all of a sudden finish either of them in under 3 rounds?

    cyborg would finish them all in the first and could fight them all on the same card.

    There is no way u can confirm 100% that Cyborg at 135 will perform like she did 145. Cyborgs level of competition is not really good at FW. All of a sudden if Cyborg cant bully her opponents at 135 without the weight advantage like she does at 145, the fights with Meisha, Cat, Holms and Nunes: theres a chance she struggles with the more technical strkers in Holms and Nunes. Cat and Meisha are the better grapplers and can get a decision. I do think she beats Bethe and McMann, unless McMann goes to ATT for a while.

    The thing about Cyborg shes very predictable and relys on swinging looping punches. Rory hand position defense used against Woodleys punches and the head movement and footwork Lalwer used against Rory would be the some of the best way to set up defensively to beat and gameplan against Cyborg and dont stand flat footed. I would take Holms to get a comfortable decision, especially if she improves in her next fight. Nunes at ATT is looking like a savage if her cardio improves i likeel her chances as well. Cyborg is very good and predictable, but at 135 i feel the top 5 BW has chance to beat and expose Cyborg.

    You mean TKO her? Cyborg has always been a volume striker, she is not some one punch KO artist. I think here vs either Cat or Meisha would be an interesting and competitive fight.

    Car and Miesha would be tough fights for Cyborg. Bethe would go roughly the same as Bethe vs Ronda did.

    My God, when Justino finally makes 135, you will see how overrated she is in the Heavies.

    In all likelyhood, she would be beaten by them all with the exception of Correia.

    I hope they would let Alpha welcome Justino to the UFC, so you all can see how that steroid-fueled hype train derails.

    A #1 Contender fight with Lioness would do nicely as well.

    I've often wondered what exactly it was that Cyborg had accomplished that gives her so much credit on these boards. Beating Carano? People for some reason bash on Rousey for her competition, but give credit to Cyborg for beating worse competition and doing it less impressively.
