No, she can't beat him face to face, playing by the rules, not a chance. If she wants to have a chance of winning, she fights outside the box and maximizes whatever advantages she has.

The curious thing about that is that there are two groups in men when it comes to that. There are those who think of it as smart such as with

or when a SWAT team goes in with overwhelming firepower to win.

Then there are those who believe that fighting should be one on one and honorable.....and how many of them are left standing at the end of the day?

I believe that is what motivated Congress when right after WWII they passed the law banning women from combat positions (repealed in the 90s).

Whenever they show woman vs woman fight scenes it's total unlike how women fight in the real world.

There are no rules in the "epitome of bloodsport," and with the male going in with no expectation of rules, he will still win.

The TV series Fargo recently has a terrifying scene where we watch the witness of a woman being beaten. We listen to her screaming as they drop to moans and finally the near silence as we hear blows land. It was more powerful than watching blows hit a stuntman and professional wrestler
