Rousey: Cyborg & I could be the biggest MMA fight of all-time

by Shaun Al-Shatti | source:

"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.

"I think if it was done right and it was done correctly, you could have people watching that fight that have never seen a single MMA fight before. Lots of them. I think it could be the biggest MMA fight of all-time," said Rousey.

"I'm serious. Think about it. Every MMA fan will watch, and a whole bunch of other people that aren't even the least bit interested in MMA would watch. That's the kind of demographic that fight could reach to that none of the men can right now."

Maybe the biggest fight of whatever month it happened in, and that's being generous.

 technically yeah Cyborg cheated but I have a feeling the vast, vast majority of MMA fighters at the top level are dipping into something, but cycling and timing things properly.

Unless it's jello wrestling, gymnastics or trampolining, I don't think the women's version of any sport is going to be the biggest at anything.

I see exactly where you're coming from and I respect your viewpoint, but the very things you mention as being of no interest to you (the 'cheater' and 'never shuts up' stuff) are the very things that would draw a lot of people into watching a fight between these two. While this is no way the 'biggest MMA fight of all time', I think if it's marketed cleverly, it could make a huge financial killling. All Rousey seems to be doing is helping that along by continuing to be mouthy, which is just a fighter hyping a fight after all, it's not like it's a new marketing strategy.
