Rousey: Not sure why Cyborg feels 'entitled'

source: MMA Uncensored Live

"I just don't understand where her sense of entitlement is coming from. She hasn't fought in like two years -- and won a fight that's really counted. If this happened to a man -- think about this -- if this was the men's division, and it was someone who hadn't recorded a win in two years, then had their title stripped from them because they were caught cheating, would you expect them to come back from their suspension and be like, ' I want the biggest title fight out there, with all the considerations that I want. And, if not given to me, it's because they're running from me.' You know?

I just don't see where she thinks she deserves to get every single thing that she wants, when she's pretty much been exposed as a fraud."

Because everyone wants to protect the cute (ish) girls from the scary monster. Female MMA isn't about talent or who is a better fighter, it's about getting a pretty (ish) face and plastering it all over the place to promote MMA in general. First Gina, now Honda.No one in the business wants Cyborg to fight her because it has a huge chance of being ultimately bad for business when Cyborg smashes her and we're back to having the unmarketable Cyborg as the dominant female.It's sad, but true.

Seriously, why does Cyborg gets so much shit for steroids. Male fighters have been caught doing steroids and most of them don't get as much bashing as she does. Cyborg is champ at 145 and Ronda was planning to fight her until she dropped to 135. Ronda is calling her out not Cyborg, not the other way around. Ronda should just stop beating a dead horse and start getting ready to face someone that can actually challenge her like Sara Macmann. I have all the respect for Rousey and all her accomplishments in Judo, but her mouth is getting annoying.

Ali came back after 3-4 years in exile, and wasn't tyson in prison for 3 years as well?

If he asks the question like Yoda, you must answer the question like Yoda. "135, she has fought not"

 Anyways the solution to this whole problem is for Cyborg to just fight at her natural weight (will be slim pickings) and Roussey to fight on hers. The consequence will always be that her proclamation of GOAT status as a female fighter will always be suspect. That is just something miss Roussey would have to live with. If she would do so in a humble fashion this would not be a big deal but because this goes against the media persona she has developed for herself there always is going to be a conflict there.

 This is the truth...........DONT BE SCARED HOMIE.. If you are going to talk like your the best you fight whoever whenever. Sonnen talks like he is the best (he isnt he is the most entertaining though) but backs it up by fighting anybody he can get . JJ is the best but does not talk about it that much. He might get a lot of slack for a lot of things but he is fairly humble when asked about his abilities as a fighter and hardly gets into verbal confrontations with his opponents ( if you look back at the whole Rashad controversy its kind of silly how decent the are actually are about eachothers fighting ability). Rhonda Roussey talks a lot of smack. She not only questions the character of the fighters she is fighting or is going to fight but also questions their abilities as fighters. Granted she run through ever one of them. BUT if you are going to talk smack about someone you cannot hide behind weight classes or behind extra doping tests. If you do not want to fight Cyborg with extra doping test fine...But then you have to fezz up to the fact that you are not able to win against a Cyborg on steroids. And this automatically means she does have some skill because just using doping does not make you a great fighter. Steroids ENHANCE natural capabilities. So the striking talent is there. Roussey is,compared to Carona, just a person with a lot less class. She might be a better more talented fighter and can be hilarious and charming as well BUT she is definitely ducking Cyborg and proclaiming herself to be something she is obviously NOT.

  Dude, Wtf are you bitching about. Just because other fighters dont get caught using steroids does not mean they do not do it. What do you think TRT is....its a form of steroids that is restricted  but it is still steroid use. Do all the male fighters who use steroid have compromised wins. Then a big part of the sport of MMA is compromised my friends. Look i do think the male fighter on steroids vs female fighter comparison holds true...woman using steroids fighting clean woman have an even bigger advantage then female fighters on steroids fighter fight clean female fighters BUT that does not mean that Cyborg does not have nasty skills. And  strenght wise she is probably above average already. Would a Cyborg off steroids be beatable by Roussey. Perhaps. But i think it is highly debatable that she would run through he because Cyborg is by far the best striker i have seen in woman MMA. So the whole BS about her not being entitled because she never fought anybody is total crap. Cyborg fought Gina Carano on the top of her game. And Gina is still better of at least equal to anybody that Roussey fought.

I think all fighters who test positive should be tested year round and be required to undergo VADA.

 Honestly, I doubt Cyborg will ever stop juicing even after getting caught.  It's where 90% of her wins come from.  I think she will be a hell of a lot more careful now but it's just a matter of time before she gets busted again.
