    People called me sexist when I suggested that there are women who could and should compete with men.

    She's a BJJ purple, so she can't be that lacking in the ground.

    The grappling I've seen from her doesn't seem that great.
    I also think purple belts in general suck.

    Diaz is a **** boxer. This is coming from a huge Diaz fan BTW, but he's a **** boxer because he doesn't bring his hands back in front of his face AND DEFEND WITH SOMETHING OTHER THAN YOUR FACE MOVE YOUR HEAD GAHHHH!!!!!!!!. I don't have a problem with his punches.

    As for Cyborg being a brawler... hmmm... What was that little camp she trained at called, you might not have heard of it?

    That's not sexist, just unlikely.

    I think he's referring to the thread about the judo lady who won a men's tournament. There's definitely some women that can compete on the same level, which means an open event would make some sort of sense. But, like you said, it's unlikely to ever happen.

    Diaz eats too many punches for me to call him a good boxer. He's a good puncher, and he gets away with it because he can throw hands from across the cage, but that's still only half of the game.
