Rousey: Cyborg not a woman, an 'it'


A potential matchup between UFC champion Ronda Rousey and Cris Cyborg is the only women's fight anyone could talk about this year. Well that or a fight with Gina Carano.

Rousey recently spoke to Kevin Iole of Yahoo sports and spoke about both potential matchups:

Rousey said, "I totally adore Gina," and it would "be a privilege and an honor for me to fight her."

Rousey said she and her coach, Edmond Tarverdyan, believe Carano would pose a more significant challenge to her than Justino would.

"I've said before, I don't care if she's injecting horse semen into her eyeballs, I'll fight her, but that's just my personal decision," Rousey said. "But I can't make a decision for the whole division. I can't say it's the right thing. This girl has been on steroids for so long and [has been] injecting herself for so long that she's not even a woman anymore. She's an 'it.' It's not good for the women's division. It's not good at all.

"If she comes in the UFC and I beat the [expletive] out of her and then I retire and become an action movie star, then the UFC is still going to be stuck with her. The division could die. She could ruin the whole sport. Even though it's a fight a lot of people want to see, even if I beat the living crap out of her, it won't be good for the sport because then she'd still be in the UFC."

"I'd be honored to fight a competitor like Gina, who is an example of what real respect and honor is in the cage," Rousey said. "I really think with Cyborg taking all of those steroids and hormones and then going into the cage, it's like going in with a weapon. It's certainly very negligent, but it's also criminal. I believe, it really is. Promoting her would be promoting that act and I think it would be wrong in every way.

One is insulting a community of people who ask for equality.One is insulting a person for cheating.I'll let you troubleshoot and put two and two together why Ronda doesn't need to be suspended for her comment.

Ronda haters are the most ignorant fans in mma. All the evidence points to Cyborg ducking Ronda, but somehow these people turn it around and make out like somehow Ronda is ducking Cyborg. It's like saying that Johnny Hendricks is ducking Ben Askren, or Pettis is ducking Alvares. It's just laughable.

This man is correct ! Stop making excuses for the biggest cheater in the sport. She has been abusing steroids for years and overpowering real women because of it. End of fucking story. Ronda is an athlete and would destroy Cyborg any time with NO problem. Gina mounted her. Ronda would snap that roid arm!!!

Cyborg is trying to redeemed herself by constantly changing her story about what weight she can make?- Before suspensionNovember 2011, not impossible to make 135: During suspensionAugust 2012, Impossible to make 135: After suspensionDecember 2012, she can fight at 135: 2013, can't fight at 135: 2014, can drop to 135: is so full of crap and people like yourself continue to eat it up. She has tried for as long as possible to maintain her ill-gotten strength and now it looks like she finally has to agree to drop the weight because she has finally realize she doesn't have the leverage to get what she wants.

She will never be punished either because how she looks and Dana only sees dollars signs.Cyborg on the other hand will never fight in the UFC so Ronda is safe, while they bad mouth her in the media regarding a Failed test years ago, and how she looks.I find his funny because didn't Ronda say she posed naked for all the girls who are ashamed of their bodies? This is all after trashing ring girls and kardasian for selling their bodies??Now after she posed naked to help girls feel better about themselves (bullshit) she then makes fun of cyborg and calls her an it. I bet that didn't make her feel good about how he looks.Ronda is no different than a kardasian or a ring girl, she's just a product at this point. Where's Gina at? I'm sure they could give her a massive pay day to lure her out of Hollywood for one fight.

I don't think it should be allowed to compete in women's athletics.

I agree with everything Rousey said.      I think she should be given a medal for speaking truth.
