Tweet Pin It Josh Koscheck Talks About His Upcoming UFC 157 Fight With Robbie Lawler David Tank Abbott Talks Up Coming Fight Against Ruben Warpath Villareal On April 13th 40 Comments AOPrinciple February 9, 2013 That sucks. I wish there was a way to compromise on the weight class distinction, at least the for the Ronda Rousey fight. That seems too important to let a couple pounds get in the way. Log in to Reply marvelous mad madam mim February 9, 2013 its official honda is a coward and cyborg is an idiot. wmma is retarded, stupid bitches are going to kill it before the fans do hahhaa Log in to Reply gogators February 9, 2013 Ronda competed in Judo at 145 LBS and she cuts weight to 135 LBS so it’s no big deal Tito. Oh weight I forgot her first fight back she will be tested much more so no PED’s and a weight cut Cyborg would not be in shape and most likely get defeated. And this BS about Cyborg wants a family and health reason is why she does not want to cut the weight what about the years of PED’s you have taken where was the concern for your health then get real Log in to Reply zmayo February 9, 2013 Im sure Dana is stewing about this. You know he thought he had the upper hand in the negotiations. I def believe Guyborg could get down to 135lb but she would have to stay there and this kinda beat, if she wanted to stay in the UFC of course Log in to Reply SEAN_VANCE February 9, 2013 Ronda is scared…. she can easily fight at 140 but knows that Cyborg just cant make 135…. I hope WMMA leaves the UFC and Ronda is to blame for being such a bitch. Log in to Reply Blue Zombie February 9, 2013 If these two women really want to fight then why can’t the UFC make it happen?. Setup an even weight that’s healthy and fair for both fighters and let them fight. The UFC and the fighters make money, the fans are happy, and a winner is crowned. Cut out all this bulls**t and make it happen. Log in to Reply greengiant February 9, 2013 Tito bullsh*ts a lot but i think he is right here.Women have a much harder time cutting weight because they have less muscle mass there for they can’t cut as much water weight.Its like asking brock lesner to cut to 185,almost impossible.5 lbs to cut for women is like 15 pounds to cut for guys. Log in to Reply greengiant February 9, 2013 I do think rhonda is a little scared and wants to deplete cyborg to a shell of herself. Log in to Reply Oldassgrappler February 9, 2013 Cyborgs problem is Beeto being her manager. Log in to Reply grizz February 9, 2013 @gogators Im not by any means a fan of cyborg, but if you have ever taken a human physiology or even basic human biology course in your lifetime you should know that women need a higher percentage of body fat (=/> 17%) to be able to produce hormones that make it possible for ovulation. Even long term anorexia (which practically all male and female fighters experience during weight cuts) can cause permanent premature menopause in some cases. There is a difference between wanting a family some day and being concerned for ones health. If cyborg was overly concerned for her health I doubt she would be in such a physically demanding sport that may result in pugilistic dementia, Parkinson’s, long-term musculo-skeletal issues, or even death. If any fighter was really concerned for their health, the first thing they would do is stop the drastic weight cuts (which cause a myriad of health problems). Im not claiming that Cyborg isn’t a “cheater” for her use of PEDs or that she has her priorites in line, but as a women– she has a point for not wanting to cut down to 3-4% body fat. Log in to Reply greengiant February 9, 2013 Also i do think tito and cyborg have some pull in their favor because after rhondas next fight who will she face?The ufc knows that is the biggest fight to make.As far as i see it who ever will not agree to meet in the middle is the scared one.. Log in to Reply dumbass February 9, 2013 Ronda is not scared, she is the champ and Guyborg took roids, what makes sense all you dumb mother fukkers Log in to Reply straightAhead February 9, 2013 I think Ronda should give in and fight Cyborg at 145 on the condition that they do olympic style blood tests and random intervals from the moment they sign the contract till right after the fight. That way everyone wins. Log in to Reply mma made easy February 9, 2013 I disagree. The person who fights and wins in their weight class is the champ. The ones who jump around weight classes are perhaps more “macho” or better “fighters” – but they aren’t fighters, they are sportsmen and sportswomen. You wouldn’t ask a tennis player to play left handed if they were a “real man” because, on the streets, you don’t get to pick which hand you play with. Log in to Reply Ozinator February 9, 2013 weight cutting itself is bullshit. do same day weigh ins and eliminate the unhealthy cheating it is. it also robs the fans of two healthy athletes at their best. 145 in wmma used to be the draw with Gina and Cyborg and now all of a sudden it’s gone because dana is retarded and hasn’t heard of any other fighter other than Rhonda? All these Invicta women now striving to be 135 so they can have a chance at the UFC…Dana must be proud Log in to Reply JasonCorb February 9, 2013 Cyborg you just broke my heart!!! i so badly wanted to to stomp that IDIOT Honda Housy in to the ground!! blah blah blah Dana and Ronda…you both know what would happen to Honda if she got in to the cage with Cris!! Log in to Reply Young February 9, 2013 What a dumb broad, she wants to leave cause she ain’t gon he able juice it up. Fake ass competitor Log in to Reply T'Challa February 9, 2013 Ronda was pretty chunky in her Judo days, I heard she was up to 155 at one point. She’s definitely a “big boned” girl, but she was able to get down to 135. Just do the 140 catchweight and have Cyborg agree to VADA testing. UFC said 2013 will be the “year of the superfight” so why can’t they find a way to make the ONE women’s fight that everyone wants to see? Log in to Reply kuklaklay February 9, 2013 Just want to remind everyone that drug testing is the same in all US fight orgs so it is no easier for her to cheat anywhere else in the US. This is a fact and cannot be debated. So steroids really have NOTHING to do with this conversation. Log in to Reply kuklaklay February 9, 2013 Good for Cybrog though…I love women’s mma but the UFC women’s division is a farce right now. I hope Invicta blows up and the UFC becomes majority owner but stays out of the operations. Log in to Reply MangyMongoose February 9, 2013 Bottom line, 10 to 5 pounds is nothing. It’s easy to lose that with diet. If she can make 140 then she can make 135. Log in to Reply Freaklegion February 9, 2013 Liketime bans are more interesting to me for PEDs. No way Ronda should ever fight Cyborg. Log in to Reply Genghis Khan February 9, 2013 Family is what it’s all about boy and girls… Log in to Reply Jake February 9, 2013 I think the reason they don’t agree to a catch weight fight is because it won’t be a championship fight. Say Ronda fights and loses at 140, then returns to 135, she’ll still be champ and it would make no sense. If Ronda someday LOSES at fight at 135, then they should do a catch weight fight cause then theres no championship on the line, although I assume as soon as she looses she’ll lose much of her appeal Log in to Reply tankless February 9, 2013 Man , Fathead wrecked her career …..good job. Log in to Reply Nexstory February 9, 2013 We all want to see the fight between Borg and Rousey. Change the weight division for women to include the spread from 130 to 145 lbs. Easier for a woman to put on a few extra pounds than take it off. Log in to Reply ericsson February 9, 2013 that bitch is on so munch shit she can’t past any test Log in to Reply twana February 9, 2013 rousy or whatever her name is knows for a fact Cris Cyborg is a machine and a unique fighter at a level that cowards don’t ever dare get close to. Log in to Reply doriancrydr February 9, 2013 I agree with the champ , come down in weight to 135 and fight for the championship, what else would you want to fight for, cyborg can easiliy make weight, and as far as i remember, a guy cant have a baby, (guyborg) Log in to Reply Tear February 9, 2013 Ronda can easily fight at 145. Her fat @ss walks around 180. Log in to Reply Cheeks February 9, 2013 Tito want to pull her out of MMA so he can sign her up for porn.

People are jealous of Ronda for being successful Log in to Reply God February 10, 2013 Ronda Rousey means duck fat in my language.
