Could you take Cris Cyborg?

[poll id=”6″]

This poll will be the definitive answer to the age-old question, “Are men better than women?”

We’ll know if this belief still holds true if guys who have 1 year of training under their belt and weigh 150 lbs answer ‘yes’.

I know that light heavyweights and above will all probably unanimously agree that they can (it’s tough to overcome such a big weight difference), but when we get to the welterweight division and below, the question gets a lot murkier, so I want to see what you think.

A few notes about her skills:

  • Started training in 2004
  • Currently has a Purple Belt in BJJ (I believe)
  • Trains at the Chute Boxe Academy
  • About 5’8″ tall
  • Fights at 145, but probably walks around at 160 lbs, plus or minus 5 lbs
  • Married to and trains heavily with this guy:

And based on her performance against Jan Finney, it’s clear that she’s got some great power endurance to keep beating on someone for an extended period of time.

BTW – if you didn’t see the fight, here’s the vid from our good friends over at YouTube:

And if you’re at all keen, on top of your vote, leave a comment with some of your stats, including:

  1. Age
  2. Height
  3. Weight
  4. MMA experience
  5. How you’d win/or lose vs. Cyborg

I might win a standup match (most likely) I don’t think I’d have much of a chance on the ground with MMA rules, if it was on the street I would win.

I think I could win (would probably be on the ground) but there’s no to tell without actually stepping in the cage. I think Silva proved plenty one well placed punch from an underdog is all it takes…

Man I would pay to see that fight. I mean you outweigh her by like 70+lbs (I think she walks around at 160lbs). I dont think it would be as easy as you think. I think you would have be pretty damn athletic to beat her. That being said, I think you would probably have a 50/50 chance at your size.

If I actually signed up for this fight, I’m sure she would kick my derrière in about 20 seconds. But I would never sign up. She scares the Hades outta me.

Ok,its no good just saying yeah I could take her out on the net.
But I know for sure I would smash her to pieces in the most brutal fashion,that you guys have probably not even seen yet!.

But then as a guy,I will be in a no win situation,because she is a woman.If she wins,she has beaten a guy,hey she is so tough yayaya,But I beat her and hey of course I’m a bully because I’m a guy.
Also I would have to cut weight, I’m 224!.(but if she wanted to prove herself and take me on at that weight,lets go!:o)

But I’m 100% serious that I could smash her so badly that she may never be licensed to fight again.(wheelchair times for her)If someone could arrange the fight,I will pay all my own expenses and I will travel to the USA to prove my point.

lol you are aware she spars exclusively with some of the best male fighters in Brazil? and your weight will do you no good against a trained fighter? …martial arts is all about using someone’s body/force against them…dumbass

My 47 years of experience tell me not to fight girls. Jan Finney impressed me that she could take a beating like that from a machine. Cyborg does have some vulnerabilities. She got tagged a few times herself and we really didnt get to see her ground fighting skills. I will leave this one to the professionals. Cyborg is very polished but not unbeatable. Finney may fare better in a rematch.

I would ko her….just to strong….counter on her wild punching…but one is in a no win situation with a female…if you win, you should have your a guy and a bully for fighting a female…if you lose, your a pussy for losing to a female…now if I stood to make a few bucks and get publicity/free marketing for my business then it would make sense…and I mean no disrespect, shes a freakin animal!

This is a fun question:) Karate black belt, seven full contact fights, training since age 9. 2 Years og bjj(blue belt). 1 year of MMA, only sparring fights. I dont see myself loose. I would need first round to feel her out(not up, shes a man), then TKO her early second round. LOL.

I don’t fight girls :))

Off the main topic, Fedor is an MMA veteran and he has probably accumulated many injuries by now.He doesnt just fight in MMA but in all the Sambo/Judo contests in Russia and the world,therefore further wearing himself out. Also his age is slowly starting to creep in, therefore it is no suprise that he is starting to loose that extra edge which he always had over his opponents.I think that we are still lucky to see him fight these days.My other MMA idol Igor Vovchanchyn had to finish his career long ago because of all the damage he had incurred over the years fighting and if you compare/contrast his fights in the beggining of his career with the end of it, you will see two completely different people.

MMA Experience – Lots of sparring over a time period of around 6 months. Also had previous successful amateur boxing matches and amateur muay thai bouts.

Have trained extensively in boxing, muay thai and although not having a belt in BJJ, i know and have learned many submissions from the internet, dvds etc and have praticed them in spariing so they work in a real life situation. I believe that i would be able to stick and move and use my heaight and hand speed to keep cyborg off me for the first round. I believe that i would be taken down in the second round but would be able to lock in a guillotine whilst in the middle of cyborg’s takedown attempt (my best submission) and so possibly gain the submission win. Cyborg is a beast though.

Billy
Billy

No offense intended by this, but if you still think guillotines are a viable solution while in the middle of a takedown you’re fucked against a high level grappler. She’s not gonna take you down and lay in your guard…

I have no training experience but I have self taught my moves from using internet. I have played rugby being the top tackler and have a very good knowledge on judo, BJJ, wrestling moves and their counters, professional as well. I think my weight fits my height so I am fit to fight. I do strength training with bench press starting at 40 kg and cardio with at least 45 minutes of walking a day without rest. If I trained and got into a martial art school, I think my skill and strategy could help me win, for now, I’m not so sure but I think my determination is definitely strong enough for me to win.

I did Judo, Ju Justu and I’m still doing JKD since 2007, but I got no contest experience, so this would be hard for me to win. I think she’ll win by decision.

I would beat Cyborg by repeating head butting her fist with my face.
Alternatively I would kick her in the nuts… c’mon is she really a women? Unnatural.

My age is 45
My height is 6′2″.
My weight is 195lbs.
MMA experince is nil. Fighting experience is a few years working security in night clubs, about 8 years on the rugby field, and currently training BJJ for last 2 years – handy white belt for an old guy.

She would win by any number of means. Maybe I could avoid a KO if I could keep it standing and use my reach to keep her fists from my now suspect chin but I think she’d take it down eventually (like after about 30 seconds) and win via either ground and pound or submission. and I’d love every minute of it.

Fedor is still the king. Humble in defeat and still young enough to comeback and take on the best and win.

Eric

I agree – Fedor said himself that he is just a human and it’s everyone else who has been hyping him up…

He did look a little extra soft around the middle this fight too… Although the fact that the fight only lasted a minute or so his fitness wasn’t a factor in his loss…

I think that there are 2 ways I could win. First she could trip on a pipe or something as she walked out to the ring ala Kevin Randleman. Second. because of my regrettably rotund body, I could fall on her and crush her.

Realistically, I would be the first person to ever tap out due to staredown.. she frightens me.

Eric

LOL!!

No ring experience but plenty of sparring in both muay thai and bjj.

I think given my age and that she would by far have alot more experience than me she would probably win in the stand up – but i think after watching that vid that my strategy would be to avoid boxing with her and focus mainly on my kicks. I think i could beat her in the clinch just because i’d be stronger and taller, but the only way i’d win is to keep my distance and use my reach.

She would crush me first round, second round I would come out and she would GNP me for a little bit then i would catch her in a triangle. So I would win 🙂

I would lose by ferocious beating that would go on far far too long before the ref stepped in. I would act tough in the ring for a while after the fight, I would cry after(back stage interviews, dressing room ex.)

Eric

I never mentioned what I think my chances would be – I think Cyborg would crush me – she’s a purple belt in BJJ and has been dedicating her life to training for the past 6 years at a good academy (Chute Boxe)…

My white belt in BJJ and raw boxing skills I think would get quickly exposed if matched up against her.

I’d like to think I can keep her on the outside and use my power to win tko/ko, I’d expect her to be fast and strong and would def. want to avoid the ground game with her, that said, I think she is an awesome fighter and a huge role model for me and my wife!

No doubt bro… nothing to be ashamed of at all – she’s the real deal!
