Cris Cyborg: I can make 135, but UFC 157 rumors are false

by Steven Marrocco | source: mmajunkie
 

The rumors started when the Brazilian language version of UFC.com appeared to show that Ronda Rousey would be defending her UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion against former Strikeforce Women's Featherweight Champion Cris 'Cyborg' Santos at UFC 157 on Feb. 23 in Anaheim, Calif.

However, a UFC official told MMAJunkie that the information was in error, and that Rousey vs. Cyborg is not planned for UFC 157, and any card. Further, in an interview with 'Junkie', Santos said the rumor is "wrong information."

However, Santos reversed her position on being unable to make the 135 pound weight limit, and said her camp is in negotiation with the UFC for the fight.

"In one month, I can't do it," said Santos. "But if I have time, I could do it."

Cyborg obviously knows that she can't weigh 135 and still have the steroid advantage. Ronda knows that also. This is why this fight won't happen. Ronda is in control and she is saying "No Roidy Roids" That simple ...

Selective reading. They'll read the title then start yelling loudly and scrolling down so their dumbasses don't absorb what Cyborg said herself.

I bet a lot of Cyborg defenders feel stupid, if not they should.

Honestly Rousey would wreck Santos and it wouldnt even be close.I compare this to the Cain Valeasquez vs Brock fight. One guy with Tecchnique going against a guy with str8 power.Ronda is an olympic caliber judo athlete and most ppl dont get what that entails. Cyborg is just a roided up muscular person who made a name going after smaller girl who were not on roidsTechnique and skill will beat power everytime.
