On a potential Ronda Rousey vs. Cyborg Santos superfight:

"Working with Cyborg is challenging. The girl wants to fight, of course, but it's just a question with her getting down to 145 [pounds]. She really feels it's impossible. She walks around 160, 165, and to make 145 for all the years she's done it, she's like, ‘Tito, it really takes the last energy just for me to make 145. Now they want me to cut down to 135? It's going to be really, really, almost impossible.' I battle back and forth with her, telling her how the UFC is going to take care of her, this and that. We're still just ... we're at the end of the rope, I think. I'm not sure if she wants to do it. Me and my partner, George Prajin, we just sit there and we just try to talk to her over and over again.

"Will she make 135? As a person who has cut weight for 22 years: no, I don't think it's going to happen. It's hard for women to cut that much weight. For a woman to be three-percent body fat, it's not healthy. She talks about that she wants to have kids some day. Things like that can damage her [in that regard], and a lot of people don't understand that. This is not a man we're talking about. This is a woman we're talking about. For Ronda to cut down the weight, yeah, she had a lot of extra weight on her.

"[Cyborg] doesn't have much on her. She used to walk around at 170 and she lost some muscle mass just to try to see if she can get lower in this weight to do it. So far, so good. Like I said, she's 160, 165. She bounces back around there. She says she stopped lifting weights the way she does and really just [been] focusing on her jiu-jitsu. She's been training, putting in the time.

"I hope I can put this fight together, man. I'm trying my hardest. I hope Dana [White] understands. I hope Dana is listening to this and understands. I'm trying to get this thing together."

On Ronda Rousey and the UFC women's division:

"I think it should be more about the women's division in general, than about one person. Ronda's fought maybe, what, five times now? Or only five times now? To do that to somebody, it just shows disrespect towards all the other women fighters that are in that weight class.

"I think she's believing the hype a little bit too much. She hasn't proven anything yet."

What are you talking about? Cyborg is absolutely relevant in mma and Tito is her fuckin manager.

being 1-6 in the last 5 years is not really a free pass to talk shit about any fighter on a 6 fight win streak.

LOL at Ronda not proving anything.

 

Of her six opponents, five are currently ranked in the top ten in their respective weight classes and her last two opponents were ranked #1 and #2 at the time she fought them.  Not only did she beat them, she finished every last one of them in the first round. 

 

What more does she need to do before she proves something?

So once a fighter goes into decline they aren't allowed to voice opinions anymore? Tito used to be top3 in his prime.

Why aren't any of the quotes coming out about what Cyborg is saying. It's one thing once he's voice his opinion but he's not fighting and he's the one manufacturing all the shit talking. What is she Wrestler from parts unknown that needs the kooky manager to hype her up? All she needs is a brazillian to English translator to voice an opinion, in fact I want to know what SHE thinks about her opponents and HER career.

Who else but Soares talks this much for their fighter?

Once Honda beats Marloes that's gonna be the end of the "she hasn't proven anything yet" BS. I'm surprised nobody talks about her anymore... she looked great against a roided out of her mind Cyborg.

I'm pretty sure it's 100% true that Cyborg can't make 135 in a healthy manner... so I can see Ronda spending two years at the top virtually unchallenged, getting much better standup skills and finally wanting a super fight at 145 down the road. That fat, sexy paycheck will be too enticing. That's probably gonna be the narrative after she beats Tate, McMann and anyone else they put in front of her.

lol.

I dunno I just don't think Tito is doing her any favours he's already abrasive enough and her not talking about fighting and doing her own confirming and talk about confidence in whatever makes fighter look flaky.

Even Anderson gets shit for this when Soares talks too much for him. All we get is confusing nonsense eventually like Cung Le is the right fight or some such shit.

We don't need manager mind games this isn't WCW
