    Dana White likes new champ 'Cyborg' Justino vs. Holly Holm – who 'seems like she's interested'
    'Cyborg' Justino looks forward to beautiful relationship with UFC now that she's champion

    Why merge a thread about a new champion into an old discussion?

    You dont think Cyborg as champion and who her next victim might be is going to be a discussion that sticks around longer than a 214 discussion thread?

    I don't know man. I don't think Cyborg will be able to handle Holly. What does everyone think?

    I'd love to see holly thump cyroid

    I think Cyborg takes Holly down and subs her. If it stays standing it could be interesting. I thought Nunes would have beaten the version of Cyborg that fought last night.

    Eh I'm not so sure. Tonya didn't want to start the engagements looking to counter with the clinch. I think Cyborg just used a much more calculated approach. It was nice to see versus the usual bull in a China shop approach. Also most of the shots Cyborg landed would've dropped most other girls and put them in trouble.

    And lets not discredit Tonyas skills. Shes a grinder and can sub off her back and on top.

    I definitely thought Tonya could hang for a few rounds before the size and power just became too much to handle. Holly seems to have a good chin -- she took that late shot from GDR clean and didn't go down -- and she's definitely got the skills to score points on the feet. She's also probably the only fighter at bantamweight other than Nunes who looks like she could hang at 145 without being manhandled physically.

    Tonya was beat before the fight started. she was scared. she's never fought timid like that before, and once she got slugged she wanted none of it.

    But like others were saying, she didn't belong there anyway. it's not even her weight class. but she had the balls to do it anyway

    Tonya is dumpy, ugly and wears some retarded clothes, but she's all heart and a pretty good fighter.

    What are you talking about?

    I just mentioned how ugly, dumpy and poorly dressed Luke Rockhold was last week.

    Cyborg in the WWE.. fitting.

    Maybe Gabie Garcia can be her tag team partner.
