Can Ronda Beat Cyborg...

Ronda overwhelms her opponents and powers through her takedown and submission. She's strong and she's got crisp technique.

But Cyborg is even stronger. I've seen her deadlift 225+ pounds at least. Incredibly feckin strong.

I see Ronda coming out charging with Cyborg engaging right away by circling away and landing a barrage of shots eventually disorienting Ronda. Eventually Ronda might get wobbled. Now that's the turning point. Will Cyborg finish or get caught in an armbar. The fact that she's so strong she might be able to power out of it.

Cyborg fights like Wanderlei with that Chute Box mentality (killer instinct) as does Ronda, but she hits hard.

I'm going to have to say that Cyborg should take it.

This fight needs to happen either at 135, 145 or at 140.

These two are too far ahead of the pack skill wise and strength wise. It's pretty evident with the last two match ups. In the UFC you rarely see a blitz like that in a championship fight these days with the exception of JDS vs Cain.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Cocky or not, she's clean and fights fair. I'd pay to see her whoop up on a roided up cheat of a shemale any day of the week.

Personal opinions aside, it's an interesting fight. I think that if anyone can beat Cyborg, it's Rousey. I'd give her the best chance of all current female competitors.

That fight is coming our way with the smacktalk hype and the hugeness of the fight they can't get with any other woman fighter not named Gina. But no way do I see the Cyborg at 135 after what she looked like 10 lbs over that, but that is all on her with that one. Halfway in between would be just as good as 145 for the fight since neither would be title related. Am I wrong?

Not looking to argue here as Im actually curious about something.

I know you are a Chael fan, so what is the difference between Chael and this guy?
Is it because Chael asked to use a substance before and this guy didnt?

Are they different substances? Cyborg's is worst that the TRT stuff?

I dont follow the TRT trend that is happening so I want to hear your take since you like one guy but not the other.

thanks

Judo is about trumping size and strength with skill and leverage.

I don't think Cyborg should want anything to do with Rousey in the clinch or on the ground. Even taking into account her bjj, its probably not worth the risk.

All she really needs to do is kickbox her way to a KO or Decision Iceman style.

I think Ronda has a good chance at taking Cyborg down and beating her. I still think the odds are Cyborg can defend the TD a enough times and get some big shots off and win.

I'm rooting for Rousey.

Cyborg has really good BJJ so I don't think Ronda would lock up the armbar quite as easily as she does against everyone else. Cyborg is also a really, really strong guy.



skip to 2:25 if you are impatient

I've seen it. If Ronda gets top position, I have no doubt she'll snap Cyborgs arm. The best defense for a armbar is not to get put in one and if Cyborg gets put in one by Ronda that's a wrap IMO.

Watch the video I just posted, Tito Ortiz has her in a triangle and she picks him up and slams him.

She's very, very strong and she's a black belt in BJJ. I think this one goes to decision. FOTY candidate for sure.
