Ronda Rousey says in a roundabout way that the Cris Cyborg fight aint happening

Ronda Rousey is still insisting on Cris Cyborg dropping down to bantamweight if their superfight is gonna happen:

“If you can make 145 [pounds] while you’re super juiced out, you can make 135 if you’re clean,” Rousey brashly declared.

“Cyborg has never had a fair fight. If you really look at it, she’s had fights where she came in and outweighed the other girl by 12 pounds and then they still fought. This girl has a long history of cheating and using drugs, and coming in overweight, and no one’s ever put their foot down ever about it.

“If we did a catchweight of 140, I 100 percent think she’d just come in overweight and be like, ‘Whatever, come fight me.’ Want to know why? Because she’s done it several times before. She has a track record of doing these things. This girl does things that are blatantly disrespectful to her opponents, over and over and over her whole career. Someone needs to put their foot down about it. So, yeah, I’m going to be the one that has to do it because I can.”

It’s an interesting choice of words at the end there – she’s gonna force the issue because she can. Olympic silver medalist and potential future Rousey opponent Sarah McMann had an interesting opinion that kinda mirrored that thought:

“If Ronda wants to fight someone, she’s gonna fight her,” said McMann. “She’ll make noise, she’ll appeal to the media. If she wants it, it can happen. She’s already shown that, she is the MMA princess right now. When she wants it, she gets it. I can only conclude if she doesn’t fight ‘Cyborg,” she doesn’t want to.”

The big hope here is that this is all posturing on Ronda’s part to make sure she has the upper hand when fight negotiations start out. “Well, if you want me to agree to a catchweight then you better pay me properly.” And by that she means put the fight on PPV and give her a % of the money. This is all Imaginary Rousey though, a complete figment of my imagination. Don’t ask me what other things Imaginary Rousey does there. That’s some Snowqueen’s Icedragon shit and this is a PG-13 site, dontchaknow?

Regardless, Cyborg is suspended until the end of December so it’s not what’s gonna be next up for Ronda anyways. That honor probably falls to the winner of the Liz Carmouche – Sarah McMann fight on November’s Strikeforce card.

    honda’s got a point, why go up to a weight that nobody else fights at to fight a juiced out shemale.

  • agentsmith

    She’s just not that into Cyborg.

    I’m surprised Ryan of all people would present these quotes out of context like this. Ronda’s was a reply to McMann’s. McMann trying to imply Ronda doesn’t want the fight, then Ronda explained her stance and that she wants to fight and to simplify the weight classes and stop Cyborg’s years of cheating poorer fighters who can’t turn down the fight after training when Cyborg comes in juiced over the weight limit.

    Cyborg had a year to get ready for the 135 weight class Dana told her she’d need to fight in from now on. She’s either still juicing, didn’t try or don’t want it.

    im sorry. i know the big female MMA fight is Cyborg vs Ronda. but not only has Cyborg been busted as a cheater. she isn’t the champ. if Cyborg wants to challenge the Champion of 135 she needs to get her ass down to 135 and do it cleanly.

    Don’t care.

  • randlemansvertical

    I wonder how many times Ronda has fucked and blown Dana White at this point.

  • redping

    ^^ hmm probably zero times. She’s a professional fighter at the top of WMMA, what does she need to blow him for? What a mysoginistic comment

  • kvelertak

    oh he’s totally hitting that.

  • randlemansvertical

    One look in Arianny’s dead eyes and you can see she’s eaten her share of Dana White and Fertitta asshole. I’m just saying, Dana has probably had her wear her olympic medal and painted her rear end while wearing some shitty hipster shirt that isn’t very flattering on his moobs.

  • Reverend Clint

    rhondas looking a bit roidy herself

  • glassjawsh

    more amped for a rousey mcmann fight anyhow

  • voice of reason

    not sure about arianny but dana definitely ‘tapped’ rachelle and olivia.

    anyhow i don’t think ronda is afraid of cyborg at all, with that kind of athlete it doesn’t happen. she even tried to strike (badly) with tate and was getting hit a few times. Plus what she said makes perfect sense, roidborg is the only one at 145 and let’s face it she’s been juiced all this time. stop the juice and come to 135.

    Cumjunky will fight honda, as long as he gets to bring his gun.

  • drunkenjunk

    if you’re gonna talk shit you could at least be funny
