    I meant literally turn into a man. Cyborg takes male hormones no doubt about it.
    Even with hormones she still only weighed in at 140 lbs. Gina weighs 160. I believe Gina hits harder. Who knows how heavy Cyborg can come in at but her jab is wicked and the way she strings punches together would be tough on Gina. Gina would need to counter those jabs or stay away from them altogether. I also believe Gina would not try for leg locks every time and leave her head widely exposed on the ground.
    It would be a great fight but I would not say Gina would get wrecked, beat maybe but not wrecked.

    Gina will not stand with Cyborg. This fight will go to the ground right off the bat. Gina's not an idiot.
    THANK you. Though Gina probably packs more one-punch KO power than Cyborg, she'll use strikes to set up the takedowns...her wrestling is good, and will likely neutralize Cris' purple belt BJJ skills, if she even thinks about using them.

    I don't know that Cyborg is actually bigger than Gina. I think they're pretty much the same height, with Gina carrying more natural weight, specifically in her legs.

    I don't really have any solid way to gauge their "strength" or "power" from my couch, but it's pretty plain to see that Cyborg is definitely faster.
    I don't have any guage for their strength or power either, but it took Cyborg several direct shots to stop a gassed grappler with her mouth open, and even then she didn't KO her.

    I'd say Gina has the edge in kicks and I'd guess she has the edge in power.

    I think the fight happens...not next, but with one more fight each for build up.

    I'm not sure I approve of women in MMA. I mean, it would
    be a tragedy if a hottie like Carano were to develop Cauliflower Breasts
    as a result of all that strenuous grappling .

    If they fight I'd put my money on Gina. I liked what I saw but I'm not sure that she can handle Gina's power. I admit I haven't seem much of Cris but I'm not sure.

    Cyborg would/will wreck Gina Carano, which leads me to believe this fight won't happen right away.
    Carano is a tough girl. Cyborg is tough by man standards.
    Cyborg looks like a goddamn man donned a sports bra and cornrows and entered a women's competition like Juwanna Man or...I dunno...fuckin' Ladybugs or something...
