'Cyborg': Talk doesn't matter

by Dave Doyle |

Since the rise of Ronda Rousey to prominence in Women's MMA, people have been talking about a potential bout with Cris Cyborg. Although the two now fighter in different weight classes, the match up has been the most discussed in women's MMA and Cyborg has taken her fair share of criticism, but as she sees it, talk is just talk:

"I have nothing to prove to anyone," said Santos, who meets Australian Fiona Muxlow on Friday night at Invicta 5 in Kansas City. "People talk and talk, and what does that matter? It's all talk. When I step into the cage, that's when I do my talking."

UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has been among Santos' loudest critics, referring to her "Cryborg," among other names. Santos, who chose to fight in Invicta at featherweight rather than attempt to get down to the 135-pound mark and compete in the UFC's only women's division, says she still wants to fight Rousey.

"Ask Dana White if he wants to make the fight," Santos said. "Ask Ronda if she wants the fight. I will fight her. I'm not afraid of anyone. You have to ask them why they don't want to make the fight."

So you want them to cut 70+ percent of the roster?

Ronda dropped down because the 135 division is where the money and the bigger fights are. Ronda also planned to go back up to 145 before Cyborg got popped and then SF closed up so that idea went out the window. Now the ball is in Cyborg's court so it's up to her to make it happen.

I should add that I agree its silly to shit on Cyborg for this - she should no more have to lose weight to fight Rousey than Rousey should have to gain weight to fight Cyborg. The fact is, they're different sizes, and they're not sisters or friends, so neither owes the other anything, including changing weight to help the other.All Cyborg has to do is put the same effort into marketing herself as Rousey did, and the UFC will create a 145 or even a 155 pound division for her. The problem only exists if Cyborg can't be bothered to do the marketing, but still wants the big payday that comes from a much hyped fight. Rousey doesn't need Cyborg, Cyborg doesn't need Rousey - what Cyborg needs is to get her marketing in gear. I assume that's why Tito is on board.
