Something must have really, really been lost in translation here -- cause after a question about her upcoming fight, female Brazilian MMA fighter Cris "Cyborg" Santos suddenly threw this reporter into one of the most devastating headlocks you've ever seen.

Dude eventually woke up ... but he didn't remember a damn thing.

Three things:

1) Guys, don't take it so personal that a girl knocked out a man. Don't get your manhood in an uproar. I know women who have earned the Combat Action Badge. They are the exception that proves the rule - yes men usually are tougher in a fight than woman, but there are exceptions (and if it makes you feel better, she isn't fighting Frank Mir or Brock Lesnar here).

2) Yes, this was setup. She really did choke him out but the entire setup was faked and staged. You can tell because she is a horrible actress (doesn't even pretend to get angry - learn to emote!).

3) Finally, while the scenario is staged this sport isn't. Sorry to all you people who want to compare it to the WWE, but MMA is the real thing. Our government spends millions to train our soldiers MAC (Modern Army Combatives) and MCMAPS (Marine Corps Martial Arts Program) which is based on MMA. The Army also holds the All-Army Combatives Tournament every year as well, which is a MMA competition. So if you think this is fake, you might want to go talk to Tim Kennedy, a former Green Beret and three times All-Army Combatives champ tuned pro-MMA fighter and tell him it is fake.

Hey Scott, you should tell my neighbor who was once married to a man that she can't be a lesbian. For that stupid comment you deserve to be rear naked choked by a lesbian married to a man.
