UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey recently got fans and media yammering y referring to Cris Cyborg as 'it.'
“This girl has been on steroids for so long and injecting herself for so long that she’s not even a woman anymore," said Rousey. "She’s an ‘it.’ It’s not good for the women’s division. It’s not good at all."
At the UFC 172 pre fight press conference, UFC president Dana White addressed Rousey's remarks.
“I think that this is the fight business and people say mean things about each other,” said White. “Is it not true? She got busted for taking Winstrol. The same drug that Ben Johnson took and many other athletes took. To do what? To cheat. Well, Ronda called her a f---ing cheater.
“She called her an ‘it.’ She called Ronda a chicken. Is Ronda a chicken? Should Ronda be offended by being called a chicken? Grow the f--- up, everybody.”
“I said, when I saw her at the MMA Awards, she looked like Wanderlei Silva in a dress and heels. And she did. Did she not? Who wants to dispute that she didn’t look like Wanderlei? She got up, walked up the stairs jacked up on steroids beyond belief and looked like Wanderlei Silva.”
Justino responded, in an interview with Guilherme Cruz for MMAFighting.
"I thought the comparison was funny," said Cyborg. "I’m a big fan of Wanderlei Silva, he’s a big international idol."
