Finney is a 135'er.

Why are they feeding Cyborg smaller girls? Give someone her own size to fight.

Isn't Jan fight Shayna Baszler for the FCF final? Also didn't Erin beat Jan as well? I can't imagine Erin being too happy about this. Then again this just a rumor. Tonight we'll find out when SF tells us about up coming fights.

Jan Finney is probably the toughest woman fighter in the planet but skillwise Cyborg would overwhelm her

Story:

http://www.mmarising.com/news/2010/05/15/cris-cyborg-vs-jan-finney-planned-for-june-26th/

Key things:

- FCF allowed Jan to take the fight and agreed to release her from her FCF contract
- Jan has already moved up in weight before (vs Erin Toughill)
- Jan has wanted to fight Cyborg for a while
- Jan's obviously an underdog here, but wants the fight and has lots of experience
- Adrienna Jenkins will replace Jan in the FCF tournament final against Shayna Baszler

Also note that this fight has not been officially signed yet, but was first listed during the SHObox event last night and was later confirmed to me by multiple people. Strikeforce had planned to "officially announce" Cyborg's opponent on Monday, so they'll probably wait to do so unless they do at the post-fight press conference tonight.

ChokeEmOut - It's womens MMA and there are not enough decent fighters out there maybe 10 solid fighters scattered across different weight classes and the rest look beyond amateur.

No.

There are more than ten "solid fighters" at 135 alone, and that's not even including the fact that the 105/115-pound division has produced many of the sport's best female fighters. See: Megumi Fujii, Yuka Tsuji, Miku Matsumoto, Hisae Watanabe, Lisa Ward, etc.

Random thought:  How long do you think this site would be down for if Werdum somehow upset Fedor and Jan beat Cyborg? The MMA Internet would implode.

I say Werdum has a better chance of beating Fedor than Jan does against Cyborg.

Scott Coker confirmed plans for the fight when speaking with Ariel Helwani a few minutes ago. It was a go anyway, but good that they moved up the timetable in officially confirming the fight. It was supposed to happen on Monday.

 About the only thing good to come out of this news for me is that AJ gets to fight again!

This is an absolute squash match/gimmie fight for Cyborg. Finney is unranked and her record is 8-7. Ouch.

 Cyborg is like Mike Tyson, people will just tune in to watch to see her KO someone...

 Yah good for AJ, but how good can she feel if she does gets past Shayna, for the fact that she was already out of the tourney?
