Ronda Rousey: Cyborg questions weight cut, but not steroids

Monday, February 11, 2013

Rousey also takes offense to Cyborg making demands after coming off a yearlong suspension for testing positive for anabolic steroids.

“This whole spiel about how ‘my doctor says it’s going to hurt my heart and my ability to have babies,’ well, you can find your own doctor to think whatever you want to,” Rousey said. “Regardless of that, where was all this concern about her heart and having babies in the future when she was shooting steroids up her (butt)? Anyone with half of a brain can see she’s using this to her advantage just because it happens to work for her right now.”

Rousey hopes Cyborg sticks in the UFC and takes what the champion once called “the only fight that really makes sense.” In Rousey’s perfect world, all of the best female fighters would be centralized in the UFC.

That hasn’t happened to this point, but the UFC did announce its second-ever women’s fight Monday. Rousey approved of the matchup between Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano, which will take place on “The Ultimate Fighter: Jones vs. Sonnen” finale April 13 in Las Vegas.

“Zingano’s undefeated and has been talking about how she wants to fight me but apparently wants to fight Miesha first,” Rousey said. “And Miesha has just been running her mouth in general and I like fighting her because I think she deserves a beating. I’ll be very interested to see who wants that fight. It’s very likely I’ll be fighting the winner of that match.”
