'Not it' - Cris Cyborg camp responds to Ronda Rousey


UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey recently put Cris "Cyborg" Justino on blast to an unprecedented degree.

"This girl has been on steroids for so long and injecting herself for so long that she's not even a woman anymore," Rousey told Kevin Iole. "She's an 'it.'"

Justino's advisor/attorney George Prajin responded in a message to MMAJunkie.

First of all Cris Cyborg is a beautiful woman with a huge heart. She has a mother and father and a beautiful niece that she has raised since she was born. Ronda is not only trying to hurt Cris but is hurting them as well. This is fight sport, no reason for hateful attacks. You want to hurt Cris, get in the cage. Dare you.

Cris Cyborg does not need to resort to personal insults. She wants to hurt Ronda physically not verbally. Ronda’s hateful statements show that she fears Cris because she knows she has to verbally attack her to hurt her because she can’t physically. She knows she has no chance against Cris in a fight.

First she ran to 135 to escape her, hoping that she would never have to face her. Then when fans started to demand the fight, she hid behind her weight division. Now that Cris is coming after her she now is setting up the excuse of all excuses – fighting Cris wouldn’t be fair. In fact it would be “criminal.”

She is right about one thing: It would not be fair. And it has nothing to do with performance enhancing drugs. It’s because Cris is just that much better. And to agree with Ronda, it would be criminal. In fact, if it wasn’t a consensual fight, it would end in a crime upon her.

Ronda is making serious allegations that Cris is abusing steroids. Unless she has proof, she is having a reckless disregard for the truth!

Ronda knows Cris has passed four drug tests in a row including a random drug test performed this past March. All Ronda is doing is trying to build an excuse once Cris mops the cage with her. That is by lying and saying that Cris is a cheater.

Affirmatively, Cris is not using any performance enhancing drugs!

No one to fight at 135lbs? Uhhhh that's where the biggest division lies. Take a look at 145lb division. Who besides Marloes Coenen is threat at 145lbs? Because Miesha Tate beat Marloes Coenen and she competes at 135lbs. Ronda Rousey has faced more challenging opponents than Cyborg.

agree with lawyer... its one excuse after another with RR.. now always pointing to the fact cyborg is a cheat blah blah blah... looked, there is absolutely nobody to fight at 35, not a deep division.. looking for a 5 year out of the sport movie lady to fight... cyborg is the fight, the only fight, and if RR was who uncle dana is making her out to be she would fight cyborg at 140, or even 45.. why the hell not.. I see why she could want her to go to 35, but just saying if she was chuck the ice man liddell she wouldn't be making a deal outta 5 or 10 lbs..

Cyborg shouldn't be allowed to fight women. Her Steroid use thru the years turned her into half a man. The transformation is done, who cares if she is clean now, she will always have an advantage.

If Cyborg wasn't afraid she would have signed with the UFC long ago, whats stopping her?

Maybe it's because Cyborg did so much juice that her clam is now a geoduck.

It's 2 chicks who are both too afraid to fight each other. Why is anyone still listening? Hell, why do I even come in to these threads.The division is irrelevant right now.

It's easy to make comments about Cyborg as she has been caught using PEDs, but has anyone ever accused or suggested Ronda has doped?I know, blasphemy! But hey, she's freakishly strong, muscular, very aggressive in personality and a former Olympic athlete - and we know how rampant drug use is for Olympians.Now before everyone jumps all over me with hate, I am not in any way suggesting she has used PEDs but it's funny how the accusations get thrown at some (ahem, GSP) who have always pissed clean but not others, like Ronda.
