Famed MMA nutritionist and weight cutting guru Mike Dolce recently appeared in MMAWeekly Radio and expressed confidence that he can get Cris Cyborg down to 135, and that she will beat Ronda Rousey.

Dolce has a sterling record of helping fighters cut to a new division or overcome previous problems with making weight safely and effectively, without sweating out their weight, health, and conditioning in the sauna.

Dolce met with Cyborg in LA before she returned  home to Brazil for a vacation, and is utterly confident he can make Cyborg the greatest female fighter on the planet, and a legend.

“I have every intention of working with Cris Cyborg once her UFC contract is finalized," said Dolce. "Right now we’re circling the drain, we’re waiting for the go ahead, but Cris she’s been on vacation in Brazil. If she was here in the United States, she and I already would have been working together. So she’ll be back, her contract will be signed hopefully soon, and as soon as she has a date and an opponent, then it’s game on, I will be working with Cris Cyborg."

“I’m the only guy in the world that can get Cris Cyborg on weight and healthy. I only say that because I have the history. I’m only going to point to my resume when you look at Rampage Rampage was 260 pounds when he came into the fight with Lyoto Machida. He came out there and made 205 pounds easily and he beat Machida. Johny Hendricks is 215 pounds, started working with me, he’s beat Fitch, Koscheck and Kampmann. Johny probably is the biggest welterweight in the UFC, and he’s destined to be a world champion. Thiago Alves, Chael Sonnen was 233 pounds six weeks before the Michael Bisping fight in Chicago."

“Nobody can say that any of my athletes ever look unhealthy or ever underperform as a result of their weight cut.”

“She’ll be 135 pounds, it will be the healthiest she’s been her entire career, and it will be the best performance of her entire career or I would not have taken the job. I can’t risk having an athlete underperform as a result of a weight cut. I would never jeopardize an athlete’s health. A lot of athletes come to me and they want me to help them drop a weight class or two, and I’ve turned a lot of huge names down because it’s just not safe, it’s not healthy."

“At 135 pounds, Cris Cyborg will be the best of her career. She will be the greatest female fighter in the world. She will achieve legendary status at 135 pounds. At 145, she’s too heavy, she’s slower at 145. She’ll be faster at 135, she’ll be more reactive, more flexible, more mobile, and she’ll be stronger. She’ll produce more force per pound of her body weight than she can at 145; I guarantee it.”

“Cris Cyborg could be the world champion today. Whenever Cris fights for the title, she’ll win the title. So if they want one fight or five fights, whoever she fights, she’ll beat. Whether it’s Ronda Rousey for the title, or it’s Sara McMann or Miesha Tate, but there’s a lot of tough girls, but whoever she fights, she’ll beat.”

So Tito's worried she might die and now she's going to be a legend?

I don't think she can beat Rousey at 135 even if she comes in in fine shape. Phone Post

Can't. Can. Death sentence. Possible. Legend?

Nick Fury - Sonnen didnt look healthy after his cut when he fought Bisping. He looked drained and like shit. This guy is just another self-promoter trying to make a buck. He's the Greg Jackson of the diet world. if he can do it, good for him, but let's not pretend he is the only guy in the world that can do it, thats such a joke. And the whole "legend" thing is because its going to be his client.
He's not selling snake oil, a lot of fighters don't diet correctly. Phone Post

If Cris signs a contract with the UFC and makes 135, Ronda will tuck for years...

It will be just another fight that we talk about for ages but dosn't happen for a least 2 years.

And I bet by then, there will be no more womens division in the UFC.

Aside from Ronda , but yes lady's the women y'all were safe from at 135 is coming to get ya .
IMO Ronda has the only chance of beating Cris I don't think she will but she has the best shot at doing it girls like Liz C MT are going to get knocked out Phone Post

Self promoting is obvious.

As a side note - Cyborg is pretty much being forced to fight at 135, whereas all the other fighters he works with CHOOSE to make the cut to gain a competitive advantage.

Why are most of you hating on Dolce? The guy knows what he's doing. I wonder if any of you have a better nutritionist in mind to help Cyborg cut the weight? I want to see this fight happen. Don't count her out.

Since when does the UG Blog link to people's Amazon book page?

When they report on a gracie breakdown is there a link to the gracie academy website? their bullyproof book?

I think the ads and the journalism should remain separate.

If he had a background as a dietitian, he sure as hell wouldn't be calling himself a nutritionist. That would be like a real doctor calling himself a homeopath

Vitor Belfort was also on the Dolce Diet before Anderson Silva fed him his foot.
Anderson saw how hungry Vitor looked.

So he fed him. Phone Post

Is there someone who is better at this than Dolce? I'm not sure where all of the negative comments are coming from, but I am far from an expert.

If there is somebody who can do it better, then wouldn't it be nice to share that info here, so that fighters can get the best possible help with their diet and weight cutting?

I just want to see the fighters fight to their ultimate potential.

The greg jackson of the diet world sounds like a huge compliment to me. Have you heard any fighters complain about dolce?

Should be easy for him to do. All he has to do is say "eat this" and "Don't stick that needle in your ass"

Also liked the question in the presser yesterday where the girl asked if the UFC was going to have any trans-gender matches. Dana said no but then again they didn't sign Cyborg yet.

I believe Cyborg would win a fight with Rousey. I think her striking would overwhelm Rousey early.
