    I feel Nunes punches as hard as some men, could she beat a trained MMA male figter in the cage?

    She hits hard but how would she react to getting hit by an opponent with denser muscles, bone structure and higher testosterone levels ?? I suspect not well, our only point of reference in regards to male vs female in combat sports was Lucia Rijker vs a journeyman in Muay Thai and it didn't end well for the female unsurprisingly.

    Amanda was wobbled by Germaine a couple of times in their last fight and she had to turn it into a wrestling match.
    A male MMA fighter would KO her cold and quick.

    And you could see Rijker was technically better than the man, too. Didn't help her.
