CSAC should be ashamed of themselves... *Spoiler*

I can't believe that CSAC sanctioned the fight between Cyborg and Akana. What the hell? Cyborg came in thoroughly overweight to fight an opponent who was previously the 130lb champ. There was practically a 20lb weight difference. If CSAC wants to have any semblance of giving a sh*t about fighter safety, they really need to pay attention.

Cyborg completely outclassed her opponent simply because she had a ridiculous advantage in both size and strength. To her credit, Akana is tough as hell.

The need to stop allowing that beast of a woman cyborg to fight undersized opponents. Someone is going to get seriously hurt and being that they are female fighters, it is going to damage women's mma, and MMA as a whole.

I agree last night was bad for womens MMA. It was just one woman throwing another about the cage. Not due to a greater deal of skill though but more based on weight. CSAC should not have let the fight go on and in future should have more punishment for fighters coming in well over the designated weight limit.

You are absolutely right, the whole thing was kinda sick. Cyborg was literally just throwing her around and to be honest, I really wanted to see Hitomi pull out some cool ass submission, but Cristi was much too strong for her. This really made me want to see Gina kick her ass because she didn't seem like she was respecting her opponent at all.

Also, that growling while hitting? Yeah, you're not helping in the case of whether or not you have a vag.

Flying armbar attempt was sick though!

The size diffrence is about the same as BJ and GSP, while I agree it wasnt fair it this is no worse than some mens fights.

Cyborg is guilty but as i remember Gina Carano has been over the limit in her last few fights also. So when they fight each other and Cyborg destroys her face it will be ok for both of them to dis each other with not giving a crap about making weight

I still don't think a lot of people have figured out what to do with women's MMA. There aren't really enough high profile fighters to be able to create different weight classes for televised and PPV events so they are getting lumped into one weight class which isn't really natural for them. Cyborg and Carano should be fighting at a heavier weight and Akana should be fighting at a lighter weight than them. The bottom line is that they fight where the opportunites and money is right now, despite the risk to their health and career in terms of losing.

Remember the first season of The Ultimate Fighter? How many guys then and even since then have fought at unnatural weight classes just because they wanted an opportunity?

I'm not saying it's ideal, but it's a business and these guys have to make a living somehow.

pssst ---> A LOT is two words

WTF is an "amatuer" ? Ama-chooooo-ur? as seen under my nick.
