    The similarities are uncanny.

    - Everybody wants to see Ronda and Cyborg go at it.
    - They say Cyborg will be the one to end Ronda's undefeated streak.
    - Ronda is ducking Cyborg.
    - They can't fight due to promotional differences.
    - Cyborg has issues with random testing.

    One difference is that both Mayweather and Pacquiao had a lot of fans.

    -Pacman is a household name. Nobody knows who Cyborg is.
    -Nobody said anything about Cyborg ending anything besides the 2% hardcores. Casuals have no clue who Cyborg is
    -Both are ducking each other
    -Both are under the Zuffa umbrella

    Complete nonsense.

    If you're talking about Ronda vs Cyborg being May/Pac in terms of interest and revenue I think there's another fight that'd make more, Gina vs Ronda.

    Casual fans don't know Cyborg or Gina. They would get sold on who ever UFC sold them.

    I think real fans would want to see Cyborg in there. Gina's irrelevant as far as MMA nowadays. Rousey would appreciate beating her, but I don't think real fans would count that as anything special. At all. Beating Cyborg would be special.

    Mayweather and Pac are household names.

    Cyborg doesn't know where the house is.
