I wonder what will happen to the Carano hype after she badly loses this one.
The bigger question is what will happen to women's MMA after Carano badly loses this one.

Diaz is off the card. Replaced by Jesse Taylor of The Ultimate Fighter infamy. The fight is also no longer a title fight.
I really wanted to see Hieron upset Diaz, too.
Aw HELL YEAH. Like so many, I've been wanting to see Carano vs. Cyborg for a long time.
It's nice to see that two of the biggest names on the card are female fighters. Personally, I think a lot can come of women's MMA if Carano loses; the whole sport is so focused around just her in the US, and I think there will be more recognition of female MMA athletes at large if someone beats her.
You need a star before you can tag an "s" onto the end of the word.
Carano by leglock. A smooth, shaven, sexy and equal to males in all respects leglock.
Hopefully. If I were a betting man, Cyborg by decision or TKO in the second or third.
Mousassi by headkick.
Santos by being meaner, stronger and more Brazilian. KO.
Hieron by being the better fighter.
Mousasi by TKO.
Rest I don't care about, but am looking very much forward to the Carano/Santos fight.
