There was a time in the not-so-distant past when women’s MMA was something new and intriguing. Before Ronda Rousey, before entire seasons of TUF coached by top female fighters, there was just Gina Carano, a star in Strikeforce, and her nemesis Cris Cyborg.

Cyborg will make her long-awaited debut in the Octagon at UFC 198  – a card staged in Brazil and jam-packed with local talent. And though Cyborg has done well for herself in Invicta FC, destroying all who’ve stood before her, there was a single point in time when she went from borderline sideshow attraction to the absolute best in the world.

The point is in the video below. Yes, it involves her utterly smashing Carano.

Watch and enjoy.
