Cris Cyborg: What Rousey is saying about me is bad for the sport


Ronda Rousey recently appeared on Mauro's Ranallo's The MMA Show, and said that she was at once glad that Cris Cyborg was caught using PEDs, but was sad that she never had a chance to give her the lesson in the cage that PEDs are not necessary.

Now Cris Cyborg has responded ro Rousey in an interview with Brazilian Media giant OGlobo that also covered her again denying that she knowingly took any PEDs.

"I don’t like to talk too much, I like to act instead. But now my hands are tied, I am suspended. This will be the first and last time I will talk.

"First of all, (Ronda Rousey) has been running away from me for a long time. We were going to fight, she talked a lot but left our division. And now she’s starting to talk because she knows that our fight will be difficult to happen. It’s easy to talk.

"She’s saying things that she shouldn’t be saying which hurts the sport. She’s directly affirming that I have used things before and disrespecting the Athletic Commission.

"In all of the fights I’ve had I passed the drug tests. What happened now was a mistake.

"I always respect my opponents, but with Ronda it will be different. She will have a year to train, that is, if she has the courage to throw hands with me. I will continue to train, I will compete in other sports such as jiu-jitsu and wrestling. It was a mistake, but it was good because I’ll continue to train and improve. She’ll have a year to get ready."

"I was having troubles losing weight and I didn’t know it had a banned substance. I made a mistake of not getting it cleared by a doctor. I was told it was just to lose weight. My biggest problem (getting ready for a fight) is to lose the weight. I was absent from fighting for two years, and it’s harder to lose the weight, but I never had to do this.

"It was not to get stronger, only to lose weight ... I don’t need anything to win a fight. I have a clear conscious. I don’t think it would have been any different (had I not got caught), because I didn’t have an opponent anyway."

"We learn from our mistakes. I was not the first to take it and won’t be the last. I hope that this will serve as an experience to other fighters. People need to inform themselves before taking anything. What I have built inside MMA will not end because of this."

cyborg should stfu at this point in time, either that or "man" up and admit like a real "man" that she roided and not come up with bullshit excuses that only make me laugh.I have more respect for Leben who admitted it than those other clowns and their tainted "supplements".

Agreed. they are a joke there is a reason they are not admissible in court. And those MRI things have been proven to be a fraud! Law enforcment tries to use them to bully people and because they are too lazy to do any real police work and find some real evidence.

Why are people saying Rhonda is a shit talker? Have they not heard Chael Sonnen so they know what shit talking is? Rhonda hasn't really said much at all.No one is buying the accident story because its bullshit. And I am even for allowing steroids if someone wants to use them but the one stipulation would be they have to be prescribed by a doctor... Still Chris is just digging the hole deeper. First thing you should do when you find yourself in a hole is stop digging.

"Please stop posting on topics about which you're completely ignorant. Or, go read up on polygraphs, come back to this forum and retract, and everybody can be friends and respect each other again" Mr. Anti, why the need to be so caustic?. You have ignored this user.    "
