Remember watching that video among others showing her abnormal strength.

That's what I'm trying to say. Ronda is toned and has crisp technique. Cyborg has serrated muscles like a SHE-HULK and excels in all facets of the game. She should be strong enough to repel a takedown, push off from the clinch or scramble and power out of an attempted submission. She's gonna push the pace to the extreme and I'm not sure Ronda can withstand three to five rounds without getting that takedown.

Ronda really reminds me of Toquino and even Codie. She excels at one submission and probably a few others we havn't seen. She's great, but the fact that she always relies on that one single move (six in a row) may show some insecurities.

All in all it's good to have Ronda cuz Cyborg was blitzing everybody before.

There can only be one!

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Yeah I found it surprising that she didn't transition from armbar to triangle when Kaufmann defended correctly. The triangle was there for the taking and the armbar, not so much. She persevered and got it in the end but Cyborg is much better on the ground and far stronger than Kaufmann.

A. She wont be on PED's
B. She will need to cut a bit of weight and that's a lot harder for a women.

I think she should be able to fight off the TD and win but Ronda wont be working at half speed like Tito was.

Some may think she can defend the armbar once Ronda has it locked in, I think that's low percentage.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see Rousey beat Cyborg...but Cyborg would batter her Jan "Cuddles" Finney-style while we all uncomfortably wish we could look away.

Rousey is very tough lady. So is Tate. But Cyborg is a grown man, extremely skilled in all facets of MMA. Rousey eats an uppercut, knee, or something else devastating on the way in, then turtles up.

If the fight takes place at 135, Rousey all day long.

I hope Rousey beats the ever living sh out Cyborg. Never been that fond of her and the steroid stuff did not help.

I'd be surprised if Cyroid could make 135 without diuretics.

Everybody knows that she won her first six pro fights by arm bar, but did you guys know that she won her first three amateur fights the same way. I just found out right now.

I'm not sure what to think of this. It shows her mindstate is all about winning with the least amount of resistance. Problem is you all know what's going to happen eventually.

Pretty amazing stats though.
