Cris Cyborg: Ronda Rousey used me as a stepping stone to fame


"Ronda gained fame using me as a stepping stone and turned the good girl of the story. I could not accept this, I was wrong, and I paid a high price, but I have learned so much. I have God in my heart and 200 million supporters (Brazil population), that will help me to give a happy ending to this story."
Cristiane Santos via Instagram

Former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cristiane Santos is not too happy with the recent fame and mainstream acceptability achieved by current Strikeforce bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey -- who UFC president Dana White said would be the first female fighter he would bring into the UFC.

Santos believes that she has been used as a stepping stone, and made into a bad character to propel Rousey as the new face of women's mixed martial arts.

A much anticipated battle between Rousey and Santos has been rumored after Santos suspension for PEDs ends, but the two cannot seem to agree at which weight class they will fight.

Gina Carano was the best female striker in MMA behind Cyborg. She is probably still the most technically skilled but Cyborg is just tougher and hits harder. If you watch all of Gina's fights she has FAR superior boxing and striking compared to most female MMA fighters. Gina probably still beats anyone but Cyborg at this point. She quit because she didn't want to end up looking like Cyborg lol.

Cyborg had a hard time with Gina. She can cheat all she wants, and she still won't win. She's going to hide behind those 5 roid-pounds, even though she has had more than enough time to drop them easily.

Cyborg would beat the living fuck out f Rousey.Sorry but it's true. Granted, cyborg is a roiding cheater- it doesn't change the fact that she would beat Ronda within 3 quarters an inch of her life within the first round. Rousey ducked cyborg up until cyborg was kicked, and then, miraculously started talking shit with no regard. Pretty lame if you ask me. Duck someone, then when you know they can't fight, start relentlessly talking shit. Rousey better pray guyborg doesn't get sanctioned to fight again, because little Ronda will take the beating of her life

The deal with cyborg is the same as jay cutler and flex wheeler types. There are certain muscle gains you just don't see on anyone naturally, no matter their genetics. Yeah, some people doing roids don't look it but some superhuman looks are impossible without massive doses of peds. It's like reems Barry bonds head. Your face doesn't double in circumference in a few years. C'mon now..Btw, did I click on a clenis pic? Barf.
