With the news that the UFC had signed Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate, talk immediately turned to Cris "Cyborg" Santos, who can apply in January for a license to fight, following a year suspension for PED use.

However, Cyborg's camp has said that following a meeting with her doctors, Santos will not be able to make the 135 lb weight division.

Santos met with her doctors recently to see about a possible move down to 135lbs, so that she could eventually and hopefully meet Rousey inside the UFC Octagon.

She was told that a cut to 135lbs would just not be safe based on her personal physical health. Her cardiologist stated emphatically that he would not sign off on a move down a weight class based on her current health.

The dangers to her body could also prohibit Santos from carrying a child later in life, and according to her camp, that was a risk the former Strikeforce champion was unwilling to make for any fight.

Read entire article...

This leaves several options. Cyborg could move to an organization like Invicta FC with a women's 145 lb. division, which is a possibility. The UFC could start a women's 145 lb. division, which seems highly unlikely at this time. Or, a fight could be made with Rousey at a catchweight, which at this point is the most likely outcome.

Is she really that big? Can she not drop all the muscle she obtained from juicing?

Now I suppose Ronda's doctor will say a diet of marshmallows and gorilla hormones is unsafe.

She won't be able to bear children if she loses at most 10 lbs of muscle?  Muscle that naturally women do not have anyway,  If she wouldn't have been popped for juicing then this article would have been laughable.

I say Rhonda Meets her in the middle on the condition that she takes a piss test every 4 days 3 months out all the way up to the fight.

Imo this is just propaganda from the cyborg camp to start the discussion of RR going up in weight.

What fighters actually ask their doctor to sign off on going down in weight? Phone Post

A steady diet of anything but steroids should work. Even horse meat would allow her yo get the weight down

It should not be up to Ronda - The Champion - to move up a weight class to fight a challenger.

If Cyborg can't make the weight, she shouldn't get the shot. Simple as that. Phone Post

I know she is the 135 champ, but if Rhonda is so sure of herself why doesnt she just go up to 145 to fight?

Winstrol, the choice of pediatricians everywhere.

And really, 10 lbs is some huge impossibility? Yeah, okay. I'm sure she's had access to top medical staff. And trainers giving her random supplement pills. What did the "doctor" say about that? He think that's a good idea too?

I had no idea she's only 27, she looks at least 35.

She's so concerned about having children later in life, perhaps she thought stanozolol was a fertility drug?

The issue isn't about cutting the weight, with diet less weight lifting, less steroids etc she could lose enough weight to cut safely. If Kenny Florian can go from a fighting weight of about 180lbs when he was on TUF down to fighting at 145 lbs, I'm sure Cyborg can go from 145 to 135 with the right diet. This is pathetic.

I'm not buying it for even a second!!! She just doesn't want to fight Rhonda at 135, probably hoping to find a way to still juice lol. Male fighters drop much more weight its just excuses Phone Post

I like Cyborg but this is ridiculous.  Her Dr is saying there is no way for her to safely drop the weight?  She really HAS to have that much muscle mass?
