    Ofcourse NOT. She didn't even manage to put him on the ground for once. Beating is so out of question!

    Not harder than me ;)

    The power gap between men and women is absolutely enormous. It's far greater than even most people imagine. I know, as I've trained with and trained female competitors.

    This question was already definitively answered before in real-life. Lucia Rijker - universally considered the greatest female kickboxer ever - fought a male kickboxer who was a nobody and smaller than her and got destroyed. She literally couldn't do anything to him. He shrugged off her kicks as if he was getting punched by an ant, and the first time he connected solidly she basically died.

    Yes, this contest is well-known in the martial arts world. And contrary to the weight advertised, the male fighter was some 15 pounds lighter.

    A bit late to respond to this but she wouldn't stand a chance.

    Saenchai is up there with the greats of Muay Thai and although way past his peak now, he's still quality to watch.

    The thread said elite. the answer is no.

    I see people throwing out other scenario but that is handicapping the man and then seeing if the woman can beat them.

    Men are genetically superior to women in all aspects, no, women cannot beat men.
