    Default Cris Cyborg vs Amanda Nunes

    Just bumped into the promo while surfing channels. Seems like a huge enough fight. Not too familiar with either, but after seeing Cyborg and hearing her voice on TV......... I don't know.

    Googled her and it turns out I'm not the only one with certain doubts. Can't blame me, really. Not nowadays.

    So did Cris use to be Christopher? Honest enough question. If so, I feel sorry for Nunes.

    It's not like there's not a precedent on this already. Didn't some woman get severely injured and beaten up by a trans MMA opponent who used to be in the military?

    In any case, I'm rooting for Nunes, while at the same time afraid of her getting badly hurt.

    She can be knocked for juice in her drink and White not lavishing her the tall blond and tan tag but she can legitimately stack cans and contenders at the top ufc. But it's jumping a shark to compare to the Fox stuff Tito come on. I heard her speak . White actually shat all over her with the 'looks and steroids' stuff early on, really sabotaged own promotion..but here she is in top ufc event. Nunes has earned her spot too and battle for Brazil. If you want hot look at her girlfriend. Nunes tore a hole in Rousey and both are tough chicks

    Exactly, you heard her speak. Didn't the voice come out a few octaves lower than you expected when you first heard her? I mean.... I'm not trying to join the pitchforks and torches crowd but..... she's got the rough, chiseled facial features, the gruff masculine voice... and I'm not even mentioning how muscled and cut she looks. Ten years ago, I probably wouldn't be giving this a second thought. But c'mon.... the precedence is there. I'm probably completely wrong, and Cyborg is 100% woman. But you can't blame one for having the slightest of doubt. I still fear for Nunes, TBH.

    Honestly bud it's a fantastic match up and one for the history books but you seem to be stuck on something else . I think you're conflating the two on some supposed 'precedence' set by some nobody that actually wasn't and can't even get licensed now. Lets be real..Cyborg may be a brown bagger and make most men shrivel up but she's the real deal and probably the best female in mma history. Voice, body and being shredded etc..all that you're describing have been repeated in many female body builders, power lifters, even boxers and other mma fighters. I've heard far worse tones and interviews by the same. In the worse and repeated scenarios roids show effects and well..she's been popped once or twice but that was then. Honestly the Cyborg innuendo is dated if anything bud . Shit I'm not even some mma fan but the match up should be applauded. Ya'll need it


    Edit...don't fear for Nunes she just destroyed her

    YESSSSS!!!!!!!!

    Not a UFC fan, but I will watch the whole 51 seconds at some point.

    Hey I get your point Spicoli, but I'm not gonna apologize for a thought I'm sure thousands of people have already had. You set a precedence, you live with it. It's why we now have to arrive at airports two hours early when in the past we could just stroll into airplanes. Not even comparing the two, so don't go there. Just sayin'........ that one incident with the military guy woman guy whatever should've left a sour taste in everyone's mouth. But ok..... Cyborg has always been a woman. I'm still glad Nunes knocked her out.

    I was hoping for a win by Amanda Nunes (and yes at first I had those same doubts about Cyborg too...) but I was more concerned about the weight difference. What with Cyborg coming from a higher weightclass.

    Nunes has a stronger boxing background than Cyborg and it showed. I mean wow!

    On a side note, the recent bout between Valentina Schevckenko vs Joanna [Polish name] was good too. Excellent Muay Thai by Schevchenko.

    So go there but you're not comparing the two. Brilliant. "Precedence" . Honestly brother you're either stuck on the Trans issue or just fugly chicks.
