  1. quite a round of action in the featured ladie’s match. 5 minutes instead of 3 is probably not in the best interest of the fans. still Gina had her chances when Cyborg gave her top position on takedowns. i hate to say it but she looked a little scared out there; afraid to exploit her advantages. in the end, cyborg’s power was too much for her ( do they steroid test here)?
