Cyborg: Rousey is a 'paper champion'


Earlier today UFC President made derogatory remarks about Cris 'Cyborg' Justino, calling her Wanderlei Silva in a dress and heels. Guilherme Cruz reached out to Justino for a response who kept it pretty composed:

"I thought the comparison was funny," Cyborg told "I’m a big fan of Wanderlei Silva, he’s a big international idol."

"I’m not surprised (she wasn’t punished) because she’s UFC’s paper champion," she said. "They obviously would never punish her, even because her opponents are handpicked.

"I always admired Dana White as a great businessman that always believed in MMA and helped our sport to grow around the world. And I’m sure that, with the power he has, he would never go against his paper champion."

I'm so sick of hearing cyborg's comments. The ball has been in her court for a while now.Just lose the weight and fight, already. She seems to think that they need to accommodate her wishes. WMMA is above needing this fight at this point.

Nothing is wrong with that but don't call me a shill because I can't stand anything about Bellator. It is the only MMA promotion I have ever willingly chose not to support. I used to! They are just a bunch of scum and I don't want to take part in it.  And you got it. No more shit talk.

Tell you what, you come to the realization that I'm not an anti-UFC guy and I will stop calling you a shill/troll. You don't like Bellator then fine, but saying I am an idiot because I have a different opinion than the UFC is bs. I want the UFC to succeed because it is good for MMA as a whole but I think sometimes they go about things the wrong way. What is wrong with that?
