    Wow, can Cyborg come back from this? Were these shots harder tan the shots she took Rousey out with?

    Amanda throws harder when she throws straight, so she has that to use and finish her again. Good on her, she had zero promotion during the Rousey fight...She was suppose to get wrecked in this fight as well.

    If UFC can't (or, to put it more pointedly, don't) build Amanda into a crossover megastar off the back of wrecking both Ronda and Cyborg in a combined total of less than 120 seconds, there has to be something terribly wrong.

    I think Nunes should jettison the 145 lbs. title. There's no one else for her at 135 is there? I would have her fight Holly, who is the last major female fighter that Nunes hasn't concussed or throttled. Cyborg can fight Megan Anderson, and the winner of that get's to fighter the winner of Nunes vs Holm (which would be Nunes).

    Ketlan Veira would probably win the vacant 135 lbs. title. If she got one or two wins she would be a candidate to move to 145. Aspen Ladd has almost killed her self a couple times trying to make 135. She might fancy the thought of moving up to take on Nunes.

    145 is so thin atm that bantamweight contenders can basically instantly get a title shot by saying they're willing to fight the champ there.

    Amanda was pivoting and putting power on those shots. Cyborg was arm punching, but we know she can hit hard regardless. I think Cyborg has a chance now that she knows she cannot take Amanda's punches like she can with most girls.

    You have to love it when Dana's plans blow up in his face (Hi, Cody Garbrandt). :lol:

    She`s much lighter, but a hell of a fighter, if she had been born bigger who knows?

    Oh does that mean it’s out of the question then as you’re Rose is an incredible fighter and without blowing my trumpet I was on her to win that belt in the first fight.
    If ever there was a case for a catch weight then this is it imo.......Thug Rose lol,we’ve not even seen her ground game of late either,you probably right about Nunez but there’s always that what if with Rose if her mind is ok that is.

    Try slowing things down,looked like an amateur in there responding to being hit albeit I can’t pretend to know what it feels like.
    She could let Nunes come forward,tie up when possible and learn some wresting moves from SOB.

    Yes, she lost it as soon as she was hit, just came in wild in a straight line.
