    I don't give a shit what mcasshole does, I just want to see him stripped so the division can move on. there are two straight up killers in that division that have earned a shot at the real belt, not the flashy 'costume jewelry' version.

    Let's give everyone what they want, strip him and let them get their prize. he can always come back and challenge. Although since he's never defended anything he should be forced to fight a contender if he's stripped, but he will get a title shot.

    Whatever the case, just MOVE ON. Conor thinks his whiskey is going to make him 'puff daddy' rich, lol. let him get hungry

    A) Why do we need this superfight? Both champions are still relatively new in their reigns. Nunes has two defenses, to Cyborg's 1. Should you really be so quick to try and destroy these "separate" divisions?

    B) I'm not so sure that Nunes wouldn't win this fight. I think Cris is still the best, but Nunes is a different kind of animal is sh'e not having to cut down to 135.

    The reason is because there is no one (practically speaking) at 145 lbs. Cyborg will draw and Nunes will draw. The only other fighter at 145 is someone most fans don't even know of (though that is the more appropriate fight).

    145lbs is beyond a joke.

    ATT head coach: Amanda Nunes vs. Cris Cyborg '1,000 percent' going to happen

    --- Post Added -- Jan 9, 2018, ---


    So is Cyborg fighting for a call with Megan or?

    A fighter with a win at 145 within the last year.

    Jan 14, 2017 was Megan's last win at 145... It will be over a year old before Cyborg and her meet up, even if it happens next as Cyborg is asking for.

    It's a similar argument to the one Mighty Mouse had when he was originally offered the TJ fight.

    Shhhh, don't use logic. Its all about trashing Cyborg and holding her to standards that most others aren't. Silly Kevo.

    It's not the EXACT same argument, but it's a similar one.

    it's only different when the person arguing against it wants it viewed differently because one fighter they like.

    it's not only the same argument, it's much stronger in this case because megan is a can beater at this point and other than beating one 'ok' fighter certainly hasn't done anything qualifying her to be the next lamb the slaughter. whereas Nunes is the real challenger. there is a whopping 2 other fighters in the UFC in that division and it's laughable to try bringing up things like forcing divisions etc when everyone knows the way to handle that. You can't manage weight classes when you leave 90% of the figthers in invicta

    but whatever the case, the UFC will make the fight they want. Cyborg doesn't make those decisions.

    the argument only fits here because it's convenient. Not when you actually see the facts.
    --- Post Added -- Jan 9, 2018, ---
    Just for clarity in my point. If the UFC wants Cyborg vs Nunes that will be the fight. if they want Cyborg vs Megan that will be the fight. it's what they want.

    the reality is they need to fill out the divisions or get rid of them. Shit or get off the pot. but that's not what they're there for. they want belts. having ones in divisions with 3 fighters is cheaper, they' ve already cleraly stated belts dont make a difference to them. they just look nice on PPV cards
