    At a high level, you have already had a champion stripped because of ducking (GDR avoiding Cyborg) and soon Nico Montano will likely be stripped of holding the belt hostage and avoiding Valentina. Ronda avoided Cyborg her whole career, Joanna makes a massive weight cut to avoid Valentina (Joanna is 0-3 against her in Muay Thai). Much respect to the ladies that don't avoid anyone such as Holly Holm, Cat, Nunes, and to be fair Joanna who never avoided any contenders that I can think of.

    Ronda avoided Cyborg? More like Cyborg avoided shedding excess weight and muscle to fight in an actual competitive weight division.

    As for Montaño, stop taking everything Big Nose says as gospel. That was all him and Saltchenko, feeding the frenzy of Saltchenko’s salt miners.

    Well women by their very nature are hardwired to be more cowardly, nothing wrong with that, fighting isn't natural for them.

    This is a very important fact that people are overlooking. Tiger Muay Thai has fed Helwani bogus stories before. Watch Nicco weigh in like nothing ever happened

    Wait, isn't Montano facing Valentina or did I miss something?

    Its what happens when you book regional talent vs world class talent, the lower level girls get murked or too shook to fight.

    Also because its 125lb women who dont hit that hard, theres very little "punchers chance" to be had, where as at least in mismatched male fights (Zabit vs short notice guy, for example) the underdog has a very real chance still to win by KO. Where as when someone is outclassed in WMMA they almost always lose.

    How can anyone seriously believe that Cyborg dodged Ronda? That's just ridiculous. Ronda dodged her all day. Cyborg is massive, she wasn't making 135. However, Ronda fought her entire career at 145 until the Tate fight in Strikeforce. Ronda is the one who wouldn't even move up 5 pounds for a catchweight fight lol.

    Cyborg was contracted to get her weight down so she could fight at 135 in the UFC. She then proceeded to bulk up even further.

    It's physically impossible for Cyborg to make 135. She almost died making 140.

    I blame the UFC for putting an amateur (Nicco record 4-2) against a top 5 P4P woman in the world.

    Of course this was going to happen.
