Cris Cyborg removed from Strikeforce show by CSAC

by Marcelo Barone | source:

Cris Cyborg was asked to leave Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman, by the CSAC, because she is suspended for testing positive for PEDs until December.

“I watched all fights but on the last one, Ronda’s, a woman working on the event came to tell me I had to leave because the commission doesn’t accept suspended athletes on the shows. My manager talked to the guys at the commission and there’s really a law that says that. I was upset for the way they treated me. They could’ve pulled me on a corner and told me, not in front of the fans. I was taking pictures and they interrupted me, saying I had to go. It was very disrespectful. I believe a champion deserves to be treated with respect. Everyone knows an athlete’s life isn’t easy, so all fighters deserve respect. When I was in Brazil I watched UFC and there was no problem."

“I watched it from upstairs, standing up. I thought she did a great job fighting, had a good performance. She’s a great athlete on her division. This is my last interview on which I’m talking about her. I’m making clear to the fans who want to see this fight that if it’s up to me and her it will never happen because I’m not dropping to her weight class and she can’t gain few pounds to fight me. So I’m only talking about her again if I sign a contract because then it will be a fight that will actually happen. It doesn’t depend on me, it’s up to Strikeforce to decide. If they want this fight they will have to come to an agreement so that both of us are happy."

Carina Damm is one I can think of off the top of my head. No one gives a shit about her using steroids though since she is attractive. Pretty girls can get away with using steroids.  Ugly chicks will be drawn-and-quartered in the court of public opinion.

Dozens of women mma fighters? If you cant tell the differences between a woman and man, especially on steriods... then you have no right calling others fags.

Yeah unfortunately that's the reality of modern discourse. Everyone basically walks into a story like this, see's what aspects support their pre-existing opinions, and disregard the rest. The truth isn't very important.

I was there when this happened and Cyborg was treated very nicely by the Zuffa staff member. My friend gave Cyborg and Kim the floor tickets and she hung out with our group. She was asked very nicely to move by a Zuffa employee away from fans or anyone that would know what was going on. My friend was very nice during this whole process.
