?"Right now we are waiting for UFC to release Cyborg, & we'll see where she will fight after that. Right now she's going to be released" - Tito Ortiz on Inside MMA moments ago. Stay tuned for video shortly after the show.

She didn't want to fight Rousey at 135 for the title, so there's really not much more for her in the UFC.

Buh-bye!

Does this mean Tito didn't manage her very well, or the UFC doesn't want a threat to Rousey? Phone Post

It means tito is a fucking idiot, or Cyborg is just really scared to fight Rousey without testosterone pumping through her veins to her muscles.

But they have a mens 115lb class and a womens 135 all of a sudden.

The UFC doesn't actually care about that weight class though. Just promoting Rousey. If they can do Pettis/Aldo, Silva/Bonnar, Jones/Chael, and Jones/Belfort why can't they do Cyborg vs Rousey? I'm pretty sure Rousey has fought more at 145 than 135.

If the actual developed weight classes can do it, I don't see why the division that only cares about promoting one fighter can't. Phone Post

I know people are going to bring up the failed test up, but cyborg is a bigger chic. 135 might just not be possible. I don't know. I do know that Rhonda v. Cyborg not happening absolutely sucks! Phone Post

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't UFC get Mike Dolce to help Cyborg make weight? I believe Dolce said that he could definitely get Cyborg to make 135.

And why on earth would anyone have Tito Ortiz as their manager?

Difference with those fights is they are all fighting at a specific weight class, not a catch weight. There is no 145 lb division and cyborg can't make the cut and rousey won't step up so this fight won't happen. Phone Post

145, 205, 205, 205.

All real weight classes.

The women have 135. And that is it. There is no other place to jump.

Its makes no sense doing Ronda/Cyborg at anything other than 135.

The point you are leaving out is those fights you mentioned they have those divs, the winners of those fights can still compete in the UFC in that div.

It Pettis beats Aldo guess what? he is the FW champ, he can fight at FW or move back to LW.

They only have 1 div for females in the UFC, doing a Ronda/Cyborg fight at 140 means no title on the line and if Cyborg wins then what? She cant fight in the one div the UFC has so is the UFC just gonna give Cyborg one off fights vs whoever they can find?

SUre if Ronda won that fight she moves back to 135, you get rid of Cyborg and no harm but to make that fight and possibly have Cyborg win with no real home for her in the UFC that makes 0 business sense.

You make that fight at 135 because if Cyborg won she is the champ of the one div the UFC has and you move forward with her as the champ.

It would be like Cain fighting some beast Super HW who weighs 310 pounds and the UFC says fuck it we'll do Cain vs SHW at SHW, the guy beats Cain he cant make 265 HW limit and the UFC doesnt have a SHW div, you think they would do that? Of course not so why would they do that same thing with Ronda/Cyborg?

Warrenpeace - Cyborg would massacre ROUSEy in any weight class.

Dana doesn't want to risk his cash cow.

Thats why the UFC signed her and tried to get Dolce to get her to make weight, but keep telling yourself the UFC would never risk Ronda by putting her in the cage with Cyborg.

Or maybe they arent gonna make a fight outside the brand new one wmma div they have, smh.

Let Cyborg agree to the fight, make the weight and then Dana says sorry we arent doing that fight, then you can say he is trying to protect Ronda.

It honestly just seems to me that Tito is campaigning for a 145 female division that way he Cyborg can still be a champ and never have to lose to Rousey.

there arent a lot of quality women's mma fighters. the ufc has one women's weight class. cyborg refuses to cut weight even though they offered her coaches and a dietician to help. she doesn't want to cut 10 pounds of roid muscle because she knows her advantage over other fighters is her physical strength. sayonara.

How many fighters at 145 are out there anyway? Dana's point has always been not enough women fighters to have a division. Tito is crazy to think that he's going to have two with a 145lb solid muscle cyborg destroying the same 2-3 girls who can't cut to 135 again and again.

Good for Dana and his golden girl, she can keep fighting lower tier women and Dana can keep telling us how she's a star and so great.

How is it Dana or Rhonda's fault that Cyborg refuses to take the fight?

That kind of sounds like what Cyborg is opting to do instead of fighting Ronda, the champ in the one div the UFC has.

Ronda has a Tate rematch, McMann and possibly Coenen if the sign her, whta does Cyborg have outside the UFC at 145?

Terrible point. All of those fights happen in real weight classes. Also, comparing the men to the women is ridiculous at this juncture. Finally, they are already promoting more than one fighter and they would love for there to be 10 Ronda Rouseys to promote.
