Starting to realize I am going to need a new bikini sponsor when I make 135lbs

1,023 others like this.

Invicta Fighting Championship 145 lb champion Cristiane Justino will make her debut vs. TBA at 135 at Invicta FC 10 in December, live on UFC Fight Pass.

If Justino shows she can consistently make weight at 135, and perform successfully, a fight with UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is highly likely.

“Everything seems to be on schedule,” said Invicta founder and CEO Knapp to Tristen Critchfield for Sherdog.com. “She is pumped up and ready; she is making her way. She wants that fight with Ronda. She is putting in the hard work, the time and the effort to get that fight. I think she’s very focused on getting to where she needs to be and where she needs to go to have that matchup.”

“As she really starts into that hard cut of the weight, we want to document that; we want to take the fans on that journey with her and let them see. She’s a tremendous athlete. A lot of people have negative stuff to say; they kick her around [about] muscle mass and stuff like that.

“This is one of the hardest working athletes – I’m not saying hardest working female athlete – I’m telling you she’s one of the hardest working athletes I have ever had the opportunity to witness.”

“Provided that she does make that weight -- if we can get that matchup between her and Ronda, this is going to be a fight that people are not going to forget. If you ask me, this is the biggest female fight there is out there and will be out there for years to come.”

“These two don’t like each other. If you take a look at what happened with Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones, that skyrocketed the interest in that. The interest is already here with Cris and Ronda. Whether you like Cris and hate Ronda or vice versa...people want to see this fight. How the fight goes, who knows? But what I do know is the anticipation for this matchup, if it does get set, people are going to be incredibly excited for this fight.”

So what do you think UG? Does it look like Cris Justino can make 135? And if so, will the UFC sign her to fight Rousey?

I believe she will make 135, but I still want to know why she said she would die if she tried it. Was that just a weird tactic to use as a negotiating ploy to get the fight at 145? Sounds like a Toto idea. Phone Post 3.0

In for all the shit talk that cyborg gets, and im not sure why because she seems like a naturally good nice person.  Oh yeah she tested positive for peds like 1000s of mma fighters oh but she is a woman so its so much worse lol.  

 

She will Handle Ronda with Ease and the UG will explode for at least 2 days. 

They don't care, look at Wanderlei man. Perfect example, nicest guy, runs from a drug test and suddenly no one respects him anymore and no one is a fan of his, bullshit bullshit bullshit Phone Post 3.0

You are just having the giggles today. Also alot of naturally good people can still cheat at things.

I guess you are referring to morales, where everyone else is talking about them being just chill people. Phone Post 3.0

Why is she fighting "TBA" instead of Gomes at 135? If she fights some nobody, she does not earn a shot at Rousey, Phone Post 3.0

How can you be a naturally good person and a cheater? I have more respect for heroine addicts than I do pro athletes that use steroids. These "athletes" are taking money from honest athletes, signing sponsorship deals then hurting the sponsor, and ultimately jeopardizing the legitimacy of their entire sport. They are selfish individuals who don't care about anything other than themselves . That to me is the opposite of a naturally good person. Phone Post 3.0

What are you talking about? Cyborg is a dominant / long-reigning champion - that alone earns her a title shot. She's not taking a fight at 135 to prove herself; she's only trying to prove that she can make the weight.

Well since every pro athlete is using some type of PED i guess you hate them all and if you dont think they all use SOMETHING 

 

Well allow me to break the news to you

You're a jackass. Rationalizing that something is right because you say everyone is doing it is complete bullshit. Wrong is wrong. Good people don't cheat. You're full of shit and arguing just for the sake of arguing. Phone Post 3.0

Woah first of all calm down lol and im not arguing i thought we were having a discussion.  Maybe a timeout for you till you can put on your big boy pants and talk with the adults?

You're probably the last person on this forum outside of RVD that should tell anyone to chill out and calm down. That bring said you're being pretty optimistic that the cut down to 135 will have no effects on Cyborg. It'll be very interesting to see how she looks in Dec. Phone Post 3.0

By the time she makes 135 on a consistent basis & is even relevant, Ronda will be retired.

Broski doing steroids is an adults choice it def doesnt change the person, it just makes their ethics different when it comes to competition, kind of the win at all costs thing.  

 

I wouldnt look at someone who juices and think they are a bad person because they juice. 

 

 

 

I reserve that for the heroin addicts lol.  

Um... why would you reserve judgement for one group of people that depend on a substance delivered to their body via injection, and not the other?

I knew a girl in high school that went to an expensive private school, was valedictorian of her class, had the highest GPA, and got straight A's across the board- she was a heroin addict. She OD'ed and killed herself.

I also knew a guy that worked as a bouncer, beat his girlfriend regularly, sold cocaine and pills, and was constantly in serious trouble- he was roided to the gills. He's incarcerated... and not getting out anytime soon.

It goes both ways, unfortunately. I think it's best not to judge people. IV drug-users and PED-users come in all shapes and sizes, my friend...

Regarding the topic of Ronda vs. Cyborg, I really hope we do get to see that fight, preferably sooner rather than later... Phone Post 3.0
