"Ronda has been ducking Cyborg for years"

Yet her first fight was less than 3 years ago. Interesting.

Even if it's at catchweight, wtf do they do if Gina, you know, wins?

theshooter - This fight is not likely to happen. The UFC would have to offer Gina Carano some major cash for her to even consider it.

Obviously. On the other hand Ronda is now getting bigger and better roles offered to her than Carano, so Carano taking another fight would help her credibility, even if she didn't win. Meanwhile she'd probably do it for a lump sum of $500,000. I also think Gina would rather her career go out on a loss to someone that idolizes her (Ronda) than someone who's been gloating about beating her for years (Cyborg). Also, well, she could win, which would definitely help her Hollywood career.

Doem - Quick question, when was the last time meltzer broke a story in mma?

No one really breaks stories anymore, and if you read the first post, you'd see that Meltzer was merely speculating on what Rogan may have been referring to.

The thing Meltzer is best at is analysis of the business side of MMA, more so than any other reporter.

There's no way this would be happening. Throw Gina in when she hasn't fought in 4 years for the July main event? Fucking stupid. Let's hope jones and gustaffson get thru their fights quick and easy so we can have the rematch July 4th weekend. Phone Post 3.0

Fudge Cake - Gina isn't roided out 145. If you subtract the weight of her massive boobies, she's probably closer to 138.

it's really not fair to weigh her breasts as they are not an advantage in the fight

for the weigh in they should have a guy hold her breasts up with the hands so that they don't contribute to the weight

may be a volunteer from the crowd or something like that

I would volunteer to be the breast holder. My wife will understand, to help WMMA. Phone Post 3.0

you gonna have to do the same for roy nelson too though

I'd hold Roy Nelson's balls AND wipe his ass for him for a chance to touch Gina's tits. Phone Post 3.0

Meltzer was purely speculating, and wasn't pretending otherwise. It was the OP who tried to make it into "a story".

Gina would be a far better fighter than anyone rousey has faced. Her only loss is to someone who would demolish rousey as well Phone Post 3.0

Not a chance Gina comes back, I think she's happy out of the fight came and doesn't want to give Honda a chance to come up off her into cinema Phone Post 3.0

FOTN - I'd be very surprised if that's true. As much as I like Carano (who doesn't?), she'd get crushed by Rousey and it'd be unfair to sling her in there after a four year break from fighting.

I still think Holly Holm is who the UFC have in mind, but realistically it's just complete B.S that they are making 'Cyborg' crawl through broken glass in order to get her opportunity as she's the best option by a country mile.

She asked to be released from the UFC.She had the opportunity to fight Rousey in the UFC but decided that fighting Muay Thai on Fremont street was a better career move. Cyborg,Tito, her fans and Dr claimed she would die if she went to 135. Cyborg and Tito both said she would "literally die" if she tried dropping weight, she then stepped on a scale at their press conference to drive their point home. Now she claims that all of that talk was lost in translation and she can in fact make 135.
The same fans that cried out that she would die at 135 now believe she can make 135 with no problem. The only thing they have to say now is that the UFC and Rousey are ducking Cyborg despite the facts.

If Cyborg was the 135 champion I doubt that the fans would think Rousey deserved a immediate tittle fight If she did everything Cyborg has done including using steroids,missing weight and asking out of her UFC contract.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to see if she can make 135 before giving her a tittle fight?
She has missed weight before at 145.

Crawl thro broken glass? If she fought at 135 where the title is competed at I'm sure she would get a shot Phone Post 3.0
