    I think Cyborg finishes Holly with solid ground and pound.

    Its not like Cyborg will panic if she gets countered and fold. Cyborg is a very good striker and as evidenced in her MT fights, she can eat some punches and be ok.

    I think Cyborg may imploy leg kicks and she imo will have no problem eating a punch to land her own. I think Cyborg will beat the shit out of Holly

    Holly might be the best fighter Cyborg has ever faced,

    And still not in her weight class.

    I'm sure you do.

    Come on, who is taking Holly?

    She fought and captured titles as high as 154. Lets not paint a narrative about the size of Holly Holm.

    Funny,

    Holly makes 135lbs easy.

    135lbs would "kill" Cyborg.

    It doesn't matter what weight she can make. Holly is a large woman and will be just as big as Cyborg in that fight. Holly is a massive 135'er.

    Sounds like Holly is deficient in spironolactone. She should start supplementing it in her diet asap.

    I don't know man, I read one thing recently saying Cyborg was walking in at 170 somewhere (not fighting) and that holly walks around about 155?

    EDIT:
    Cyborg:
    When not preparing for competition Justino (17-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) walks around upwards of 170 pounds

    -----

    Holly:
    She's also an example of an athlete pushing her body to extremes as she trains her sights on dethroning UFC champ Ronda Rousey. Holm is 5-foot-8, with a "walk-around" weight of about 155 pounds. But she will be fighting at bantamweight (135 pounds) when she steps foot into the Octagon for the first time, on Dec. 6.

    -----

    But that was 3 years ago for holly. what does she walk around at now?

    Good question, especially after bouncing back and forth between 135 and 45. At the time of the Rousey fight she was ONLY doing 135. But I'm with @Sakara=Excitement, I think the size difference is fairly negligible at this point and won't be a factor in the fight.

    Likewise. I think it'll be a fight that's won or lost by footwork: Holly's ability to be evasive and counter versus Cyborg's ability to close the distance and connect. I'll be very curious to see how well Cyborg cuts of angles.

    My thoughts exactly.

    it's funny, for someone that types out such succinct, grammatically correct messages it sure seems hard to read and comprehend her posts like this.

    She must have just be in a hurry when she said that! right?

    Did Miesha Tate just say she was faster than Cyborg?
