Cyborg: Rousey's a chicken, never been kneed in the mouth

by Marcelo Barone | source: tatame.com
 

Ronda Rousey and Cris Cyborg are currently engaged in a media fight. Cyborg is the former Strikeforce Womens Featherweight World Champion, and is currently suspended until December of this year after testing positive for PEDs. Rousey is of course the current Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight champion; she fights Sarah Kaufman Saturday night on Showtime.

Cyborg, who may not have a Strikeforce 145 women's divison to compete in when she returns, is advocating for a fight with Rousey, but wants the fight at a catchweight of 140, or Cyborg's regular 145. Rousey in turn says she doesn't care if Cyborg is injecting horse semen into her eyeballs, but the fight has to be at 135.

In an interview with Tatame, Cyborg continued the drum beat.

“I don’t need to prove to no one I’m the best," said Cyborg. "I defeated them all. If Ronda says I wasn’t clean in any of the fights I won, she’s disrespecting the commission. She’s challenging me and I gotta laught at that. I’ve never fought on the bantamweight, I’ve always been a featherweight and I can drop like a couple of pounds. If Ronda challenged me, she gotta face the consequences of her actions and I hope she does alright.

"I never knew she existed. She just can’t do it like Sonnen, who talked a lot and when the time came he fought like a chicken. I never talked about her because I had no intent to fight her. She’s running away from me, ran away to another division and started saying shit. She chickened out."

“I’ve never liked to say things about anyone because when you say things you carry a big bag of responsibility. It’s easy saying things behind cameras. Even a parrot can talk. She knows I can’t drop that weight but it’s easy for her to come up, since she started fighting at my weight division.

"I’ve never been more excited for a fight like I am right now. She has no idea what is a knee, a punch in the mouth. I was born at a gym where I used to be beat up every single day, but I wasn’t afraid to come up and fight again. When she gets hit on the mouth and loses her teeth she’s gonna crawl her way home. I’ve never ran away from a fight and I’ve never picked out opponents. I fight anyone."

“If they close this division up I might be dismissed. I can’t cut my arm off to fight. I’ll wait for a definition from Strikeforce. I want to fight, I’m motivated and training a lot. This year off hasn’t changed one bit. Talk good or bad things about me, I just want you to talk about me because that proves I still bother people."

“I wanna thank my fans. About the critics, you can go on because that only motivates me to get better and better. If you say ‘she’s like a man’ it’s because they can’t admit a woman can hit another woman like a man in the octagon. I wanna thank Chute Boxe and all the people who’re with me. I wanna fight and I’m prepared to fight anyone."

Very obvious everyone is still bitter about Cyborg retiring Carano, all that lingering hate seems to cloud their judgement. Just like a few guys have said before. If you are going to dismiss Cyborg forever and call her a cheater/roider you need to do the same for a couple dozen in the mens division as well.So she is not beautiful like Carano, there aren't any awesome ass shots like Tate, not as cute as Ronda in the naked magazines... Honestly these are the main reasons why most of you just want to dismiss her forever. Where is the equality? You don't give a shit about the guys roiding because masturbating to them is not part of the equation it seems. All this being said. I don't like Cyborg either. Puts a very bad image on WMMA. Roiding in the mens division is not so blatant to the naked eye, which makes it even worse in WMMA when it sticks out like a sore thumb.

The thing is everyone in MMA is juicing. Everyone. Some I suspected that were not like Randy Couture, and Anderson Silva have been juicing. So, I now say, they all juice. It's to recover from endless hours of training, as much as for muscular development. You have a lot of cardio work to recover from. That is the tough thing. Cardio. Your heart is a muscle, and it will recover from a day of training much better with juice. So anyway, I have been lifting for nearly 40 years have a 330 bench, 430 squat, and some decent lifts in other exercises , but, have never looked as jacked as Cyborg. Why does she want to deny it ? That is what is stoopid.

Not that I don't think the roids didn't matter, but she only lifted him a few inches off the ground. It really wasn't that impressive if you actually see the tape. I'd be willing to bet a lot that Kaufman, Tate, Gina and Rousey could all pick up Tito the same way in light rolling. If a guy did it, even a 100 pound super fly weight, no one would even have noticed.

Don't be obtuse.Cyborg has been doing juicing forever. No woman looks like that, sorry. Before she was caught you thought she was natural? LOL. God I hope not.

Roids help considerably. Especially in the women's division. Cyborg is a cheating piece of shit. I'd demand random testing leading all the way up to the fight with her.

Absolutely wrong, Overeem tested positive for an increased T/E ratio. This has NOTHING to do with measuring the actual testosterone levels.

When I see Kaufman, Tate, Gina or Rousey pick fucking Tito up and slam him like Guyborg did then I'll think the roids didnt matter.

 Double standart galore.....Sorry but the whole discussion is a bit childish. Its ok for men to take roids because the become more ''manly'' but females fighters should not take them because the end up looking like dudes? I taught the whole thing was about how the females actually fought. Its all good and well that both Rhonda,Miesha and Gina where reasonable to very (only Gina) hot but if it becomes such a dominant factor female MMA would always be a sideshow to the real thing (in this case men MMA). I am not a big fan of Cyborg looks. But you cannot deny that she crushed ever and any opponent in the cage. Does she look like a dude,yes. Is it unappealing esthetically,yes. But so is Serena William powering through all the slightly build russian for me,so female weightlifting at the Olympics or seeing the bodies most of team USA that won the team sprint. Nonethless i do respect that the dominate with there performances. Cyborg suffered enough for her 'indiscretions'' with PED ( most people in MMA take them...only now they call them TRT). There is a double standart amongs the public because us guys just want to see hot girls fight (primairly) and then look at the actually skill level. I like Rhonda,i think she is badass but i also think she would get murdered by Cyborg (her stand up is still way off\). There is no shame in that but she should proceed to cool it on the talk.Otherwise she should walk the walk and fight at catchweight (she can easily add the extra five pounds without it being a real detriment). Sonnen talked the talk,walked the walk (and failed miserably) but took it like a men. Maybe Rhonda is allowed to talk like a men but is excused from actually taking it like a men because that is not really what we want to see from female MMA (we just want to see a reasonably hot girl bullying another reasonably hot girl).
