Cyborg ruining womens MMA?

After watching Cyborg defend her title, it got me thinking. Women's MMA reached it's highest ever point when herself and Carano faced off for the first women's title in a main stream promotion. In the end it was a pretty one sided affair with Cyborg battering Gina until the fight was stopped at the end of the first. Then a few nights ago we saw Santos pretty easily defeat Coenen to retain the title. But is this domination actually working against women's MMA? If it's just going to be a bunch of people losing to Cyborg then interest will wane pretty quickly and the interest in womens MMA might drop off.

Thoughts?

Oh don't get me wrong. I think she's an amazing fighter and athlete, and a great role model for other girls wishing to get into MMA, but as I noted, it might not be the best for the sport as a whole.

Kinda agree, not her fault though.

''You probably thought this was a bright idea, who hit the light switch? Hype shift, this is where it looks like the fight's fixed, tight fist, beat you with the hand that I write with, punchlines that remind Rodney King of the night sticks...''

Cyborg goes in there and does what she's supposed to do. She's not ruining it because she's the most dominant in that division. I don't recall Tyson ruining boxing when he was "untouchable." Also, she's only had one defense. It looks bleak for known competition, but she's setting a standard for women's MMA that I'm sure will be met.

Well, I think it's good for the evolution of women's MMA.
Contenders will train harder and wiser to beat Cyborg. We will end up with a decent contender in no-time.
More high level contenders = better fights in the division.

I think it's good.

nothing makes sports bigger then a larger then life all time great. She is bringing alot more attention and good press then anybody before her by a longshot. She will hopefully inspire a generation of girls that might not have the courage to go against the grain and fight to do so. She will make the sport better then ever and already has.

As far as womans fights goes, i dont know call me crazy but i find as entertaining as mens fight usually. They often stand and bang and just whail on each other. It usually isnt the most techniqal battles but its often very brtual and decisive

Don't be a dick man, I was making a point. And yeah of course it happens in the male divisions, but there are a hell of a lot more divisions and promotions so it's not quite the same is it?!

tbh, I don't see Womens MMA popular in the future, so I think it doesn't do much.
