Gina Carano vs. Cris Cyborg VIDEO

See the video of history being made as Gina Carano and Cris "Cyborg" Santos fought in the most high profile female MMA fight ever seen so far. The crowd favorite Carano put in a game effort, but as expected by many, Cyborg was just too much for her. An action packed fight though, and even if the technical skill wasn't the highest, it was an exciting event that should open doors for female MMA. After all Griffin vs. Bonnar wasn't great technically either but it's still considered the greatest fight ever!

Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos easily toppled Gina Carano via a technical knockout from strikes 4:59 into the first round to take Strikeforce's 145-pound women's title on Saturday at the HP Pavilion. "Since the beginning, I knew this fight would be hard," Santos said through a translator. "That's why I trained so hard for this fight. The key for tonight was five years of training." In the debate of technicality versus power, Carano had little answer for Santos' relentless aggression.

Man, I didn't know woman fighting could be as exciting as men. But this fight was pretty fun to watch. That's one scary woman!

The fact is that neither women fought to their best. Gina looked scared after she got hit a few times and tried to protect her face, then gave up in the end and was just happy the ref stopped the fight. Cyborg looked too pumped and failed to control her adrenaline, i don't think she would have gone the distance. Watch Cyborg vs Akano, even though there was a bit of weight difference, Cyborg was in COMPLETE control the entire time and dished out a far more brutal punishment. Still, I hope this shuts up the blind Cyborg haters who only like Gina for her looks.
