Ortiz to blame for Cyborg turning down fight with Rousey?

by Steven Marrocco | source: mmajunkie.com
 

UFC President Dana White's eyes widened, and a smile appeared to block the release of a stream of expletives.

A fight between newly crowned UFC women's bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and ex-Strikeforce champ Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos (10-1) would have headlined UFC 157, he said the moment before, but UFC Hall of Famer turned manager Tito Ortiz told Santos not to take the fight.

"That's the fight that should be happening," White said. "Tito Ortiz is her manager, and he advised against it."

It is very hard to be a tito fan these days haha but in this case, i think regardless of his comments (as contradictory as they may be) this fight wouldnt have happened. That was then only point i was trying to make. And dont get me wrong ur comment was funny and i had a laugh, i think we'll agree to disagree, before i dig this hole any deeper.

My comment was in response to the postS you have made on this thread trying to justify his very contradicting statements as Gunnar/Haole pointed out, not just the one I quoted:) What he said was retarded, that's all. But you already know that. You were probably like "WTF" when you read it yourself:)   Cindy

Oh, good Lord. I'm glad Tito retired because he'd never make weight with you swinging from 'em.   Cindy

I see your point but im not suggesting any of that, i said, rousey SHOULD refuse to go up (and hence to any other organisation) and cyborg seems to think she CANT cut the weight without needing to "kill herself" trying (regardless of anyone allowing her to or not). So no matter what tito advises, this fight would not have happened. So he cannot be held responsible. Im not saying rousey should do anything or go anywhere.

Rousey refuses to go up and so she should being the champ of the 135 div, so this fight is a no go no matter what tito says. With or without tito, cyborg was never gunna cut, and rousey will never go up. Go up to where? There is no UFC 145lb womans division, unless you are suggesting Rousey abandon her UFC belt to go fight Cyborg in Invicta at 145 I dont even know what you are talking about. You are saying Rousey wont move up to a division that doesnt exist. Tito says he wont 'allow' his fighter to fight at 135, thats the only WMMA division in the UFC, so basically he has advised his first management client to not fight in the UFC. Its like is Lesnar came back at 300lbs and Tito was his manager who advised him to not cut to HW so he can fight in the UFC.

All im trying to get across to you is that tito is not to blame, as dana has stated. Obviously cyborg cant cut the weight, rousey refuses to go up and so she should being the champ of the 135 div, so this fight is a no go no matter what tito says. With or without tito, cyborg was never gunna cut, and rousey will never go up. Its not titos fault. Would u agree with that?
