There are so many good fights awaiting us on the UFC 214 card, but few are as important as Cris Cyborg versus Tonya Evinger.

Back before Ronda Rousey, the star of female MMA was Gina Carano, and her rival was the fierce Brazilian Cyborg. Could Carano defeat her rival and become the true queen of mixed martial arts.


Carano is now out of the picture, as is Rousey, but Cyborg is still around and kicking ass, and the UFC is looking to crown a 145-pound female champ on Saturday. Can Cyborg beat Invicta FC champ Evinger and earn that belt?

The fight is important – so important that it earned the “Countdown” treatment. Here’s their Countdown video.
