Definitely the right move when you are coming off an extensive layoff/steroid suspension.

I'd have to think its because he....sorry, SHE knows she'll never be able to make 135 and the roid rumors will always follow her big if she's in the ufc. I'd say she'll probably try making it big in a smaller promotion. Phone Post

Tito's basically saying that it'd be physically impossible for Cyborg to drop down to 135 and they pushed hard for the fight to be at 140. Dana made Cyborg an offer, she didn't want it and asked to be released. They feel if there's no 145 weight class, then they don't need to be in the UFC and they're going to look else where.

Bas asked about Invicta, and Tito said "we'll see."

Thanks for the recap.

I think she could make 135 they just don't want her to give up any muscle mass. What do you guys think? Phone Post

zuffa essentially told her to drop to 135 or they will give her fights on Invicta.  she has like 4 fights left on her existing contract.

now she and tito are crying and want to be released.

Please tell me you're attempting to troll.

Tito said it himself: Let her test the waters at 135 before facing Ronda, to see how she handles the cut. 

In the end, this is a good move for Cyborg. She'll be back.

Why doesn't she test the 135 waters on Ronda first? Oh, yeah, because shes scared and would rather be cut from the orginization than have to fight the beast that is Rousey. Phone Post

Can she not test those waters in the UFC? Why does she have to go elsewhere to do that?

Yes, because cutting down to 135 for the first time in your career to challenge for the championship is such a smart move...

Nothing wrong with wanting to fight elsewhere, before eventually feeling comfortable in your new weight class.

Funny how quickly people forget that Ronda originally fought at 145 while Cyborg was champion.

Have never "trolled" ... Nor do I post shit to get a reaction from people... I post my opinion Always... I think she's Scared... Someone who takes Steroids is Scared, that's why they think they need the extra boost, cause there scared that there natural talents n assets aren't enough to get the job done , so they turn to the SHIT.

She probably wants to take a few catchweight bouts while she's cutting down to 135, which is something the UFC won't do.

Again, I don't see the problem with her asking for a release.

Frankie had never fought at 145 ... Did he say he needed a test fight to see if he should challenge Aldo? No ... He stepped up and took the fight. Phone Post

Oh, you mean the natural 145'er who just lost?

Like I said, it's smart for her to take some tune-up fights before facing a champion of Rousey's caliber. She wants to be in the best shape for that challenge, and once again, there's nothing wrong with that.

I seriously doubt she's "scared."
