http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/With-Ediane-Gomes-Injured-Cyborg-Santos-Meets-Fiona-Muxlow-at-Invicta-FC-5-51085

 

Muxlow will make her Invicta debut on April 5. The Aussie saw a three-fight winning streak snapped in her most recent outing on New Year’s Eve, when she was submitted by onetime Strikeforce titlist Marloes Coenen at Dream 18 in Japan. The 35-year-old has finished three of her six career victims by way of submission and has yet to be knocked out in eight pro appearances.

It is really a lose/lose situation. Cyborgs original opponent had been beat within 25 seconds in Rousey's very first pro fight. Cyborg would have had to win in a serious fashion to show how good she is, or it would backfire. Now Cyborg is simply fighting another lopsided fight so Tito can talk about how great she is.

Props to the woman for taking a fight against Cyborg on such short notice, but this fight will mean nothing in terms of quality wins by Cyborg. Who knows? Maybe she could pull a Petruzelli and derail the train... That would be interesting.

Muxlow's gonna die...

Budd would have been the superior replacement, even if she blocked me on Twitter. I'm actually really surprised she wasn't the one to take the fight. Muxlow was originally brought in to fight Budd.

 

Steve4192 - I'd also like to point out that Muxlow is ranked #8 at 145 in the 'Unified Women's MMA Rankings'

http://www.mmarising.com/rankings/unified-womens-mixed-martial-arts-rankings/

Seriously?

Is the talent really that AWFUL at women's 145 that a woman with Muxlow's record deserves a #8 ranking?

 

Mostly yes, it is that awful, and that's one reason the UFC won't really touch it right now. However, keep in mind that Cyborg, Cindy Dandois, and Yana Kunitskaya are all unranked due to inactivity, and there are several prospects who just don't have the experience level who are probably better than Muxlow, like #9 Tamikka Brents (2-0, 8-0-1 amat.), Veronica Rothenhausler (1-0, 3-0 amat.), and Taylor Stratford (0-0, 13-1 amat. only losing to Rousey).

Rousey has trainwrecked some of the best fighters on earth that way so whatever. Gomes had a much, much, much better chance of pulling off the upset than Muxlow. I'm sure Muxlow is one tough lady and nothing against her but she's not at Gomes' level. Gomes has improved tremendously since moving to ATT btw, so keep that in mind too.

And the comparison to Petruzelli is silly. Cyborg aint Kimbo Slice.

Muxlow has only one win against someone with a winning record (2-1) and half of her wins are against fighters who had zero MMA experience.

Glad to see that Cyborg is stepping up and challenging herself more than ever.

They should have had Guyborg fight that tranny fighter. I am sure it has been suggested already.

Julia Budd wants none of Cyborg. When Cyborg joined Invicta, she stepped out of the fight and opted to fight Fiona Muxlow.

Now, Julia Budd's original opponent, Ediene Gomes, is injuried, and, coincidentally, it's Fiona Muxlow who takes the fight...

Interesting...

Anyways, Fiona can't hang with Cyborg, but she gets props for taking the fight on a short notice. A real fighter at heart.

As to Ediene Gomes... she was evenly matched against Hiroko Yamanaka and edged her barely (29-28). Cyborg murdered Yamanaka in 16 seconds. Cyborg has superior stand-up, wrestling and even jiu jitsu.
