Did Lansberg actually through one punch in that fight?

Not sure what they will do with Cyborg. I don't believe she can get any lower than 141 without major health concerns (if there isn't any already).

They portrayed Lina as a Muy Thai champion. However, she displayed no such skills last night. She looked scared and lost, and hung on for her life.

Cyborg is unstoppable. They may have to let her fight in the men's 140 lb class to find her competition.

I think that cyborg was about 20-25 lbs heavier than Lansberg in this fight. Cyborg dwarfed her opponent, and Lansberg had no chance.

I missed the fight and didn't even care, figured it would make a shefights beatdown look like Ali-Frazier

I think they will have to create a new weight division if they want Cyborg to stay.

Exactly. Lina came up to 140, while Cyborg had to work to get down to that weight. As soon as she made weight (141), Cyborg went to drink and eat and was easily a pretty fresh 155 by the time of the fight.

I was very disappointed with this fight. Yes, Lina is tough as fuck and proved it. And yes, Cyborg is a force when it comes to winning ugly. But overall, it just wasn't entertaining to watch. I understand that Cyborg imposed her will on Lina, but I was hoping to see *something* out of Lansberg and all we got were a few token knees in the clench.

As for creating a new division, I think that'll come naturally as the sport grows. Most women in the world weigh more than 135, so it just makes sense.

Lina Lansberg seems like an interesting woman.

In the build up interviews, she said she wanted to cut Cyborg and make her bleed. She also said something like "in a fight, I like it when someone gets hurt and I have the power to do what I want with them."

Could be some interesting match ups at BW for her.

Unhappy Re: Cyborg

Cyborg just popped.

Fuck.

Edit: Cyborg says it's not a steroid, and the substance is part of medication that she was taking after the last rough cut: [Only Registered Users Can See LinksClick Here To Register]
