Full Contact Fighter’s “The Daily Takedown:” Cyborg Is The One Who Looks Unbeatable

Cris Cyborg delivered at Invicta FC 5.

Next stop, Marloes Coenen.  Again.

Cyborg destroyed a tough Fiona Muxlow, which erases all doubt that Cyborg’s long layoff would hurt her.  Coenen, who has already lost to Cyborg, is in big trouble.

Even though Coenen is a world class practitioner of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, she like most other female fighters, will have a tough time keeping up with Cyborg’s speed and power.

. . . Let’s hope Invicta’s TV deal comes soon.

Cyborg is too good to not be fighting on the national stage. Once the world gets to see her up close, she could become the sport’s biggest female star.

. . . Sarah Kaufman battled back from a scare to sneak a split decision victory over Leslie Smith at Friday’s show.

Kaufman is angling for a rematch against Ronda Rousey, but her fantastic striking won’t be much help if she doesn’t learn how to stop Rousey’s judo throw.

All these women who want to fight Rousey had better be working on one thing and one thing only – stopping the judo throw.

If they can’t do that, nothing else matters.
