    It's being discussed as rumor has it. Cyborg would gain the most, but she'd become a big draw for the UFC imo. USDA might be her enemy tho.

    Yes actually. That's a much better idea than if they were to just create a Fly division since they'd be bringing one in instead of making it. I think this will happen now that it's being brought up. Will be sweet, Invicta puts on good shows.

    No but would like them send all the women over to invicta. Some of the women's fights are great but it's few and far between. It's still got too small of talent pool I find.

    Exactly. Hopefully USDA can figure out their own system before Cyborg gets derailed before she has her own division.

    Since the women are here to stay in MMA, may as well bring the talent from Invicta over.

    Cyborg's been tested 5 times in 2016 and 3 times in 2015. Look it up yourself if you don't believe me:

    That makes me feel a bit better, but Lesnar got tested a ton three weeks before UFC 200 and look what happened....

    Well, 198 was a long time ago, relatively speaking...pretty sure USADA would have said something by now.

    Sure, the Ultimate Proving Ground can never have enough fighters with 2-1 records.

    Obviously they're talking about brining the WMMA divisions over, but nothing is being said about the male fighters. I think they'd be In the UFC before Invitca.

    They should be quicker to bring top fighters over to the UFC, but I'd hate to see Invicta go. They have a good thing going IMO, and a good brand. I'd rather just see more fighters leaving for the big show, and have Invicta stick around to continue developing new talent.

    Fuck no, they should get rid of wmma in the UFC completely.
    And just have invicta on fightpass, so people who enjoy it can go watch it.

    The men coming over wouldn't make sense because not one is worthy of a UFC roster spot in my honest opinion based on what I've seen.

    If Invitca gave their WMMA to UFC it would continue to grow imo. Invitca could be a good farm system for the UFC or a place to dump the rejects, for the guys of course.

    I'm a little confused. Invicta is an all-WMMA promotion, where are you seeing these male fighters that you don't think are worthy?

    Bringing Cyborg is obviously the key. Creating a 145 division is the only way that will happen.
