Rousey: Cheating “Cryborg” is desperate for attention

MMALivesHereMMALivesHere Posts: 80Free
Inaugural UFC women's champion Ronda Rousey (6-0) has pulled no punches in her latest assessment of rival Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos (12-1). Rousey spoke to The Canadian Press ahead of her historic UFC 157 main event clash with Liz Carmouche (8-2).

“I think that she’s just desperate for attention and seeing herself becoming irrelevant because she hasn’t had a recorded win in around two years. They’re just whining — we’ve started calling her Cryborg now. The UFC offered to pay for her to have Mike Dolce, a really well-renowned and respected nutrionist, work with her. And he said he could get her down healthily to 135. And he even said she’d be in the best shape ever and he thinks that she would beat me at that weight. I disagree with him on that part but I think she’s entirely capable of making that weight healthily ... Where was this concern for your heart and your child-bearing when you were shooting yourself up with steroids? It’s very, very convenient to play that card when it works out convenient for you. I’m putting my foot down. You’re not coming in overweight, you’re not shooting yourself up with steroids and you’re going to fight for the only title that there is. And we’re not making any exceptions for you because you’re a cheater.”

    rousey is correct, cyborg is just trying to establish her name again and tito is trying to keep being famous.

    Cyborg needs to win some fights.

    I am an idiot for thinking GSP could finish the P4P GOAT Nick Diaz within 5 rounds

    yeah he gets them to make weight but they usually still lose I don't know if Cyborg can't make 135 or if she's ducking but if it is too much weight to cut it effects your performance Dolce or no Dolce.

    It's too bad, the fight that most people want to see won't happen.....I guess Cyborg probably going to Invicta crushing cans.

    But Cyborg will crush Ronda if they meet, she's strong enough to body slam a 230 lbs Tito, she's a Brazillian that practice BJJ, there's no 1st rd arm bar happening.
    Favorite fighters:

    Shane Carwin

    Anderson Silva

    Frankie Edgar

    Than explain how Gina, an actor who is good at kickboxing got full mount on her. This is a close fight and it all depends on how she fights clean. I feel like they are ducking each other.

    Ronda with the initial drop to 35, and Cris unwilling to cut 5 extra lbs.

    And she never slammed Tito. She lifted him a foot off the ground and he fell back to the mat.

    To me it's Rousey who has to beat Cyborg to prove she's the best not the other way around. I think Rousey is talented, but I believe she just happened to get her streak at the right time to become the face of WMMA but never had to fight the top dog that is Cyborg. I buy Cyborg's reasons for not cutting (doctor advised against it for health reasons and possible effects on ability to have children in future), and in her shoes I would listen to my doctor over a glorified nutrionist who says he can get her to drop the weight. I believe that Rousey thinks she can win, and she would have a decent shot at it; I do not think the UFC wants this fight however because while it would be a super fight as far as WMMA goes a lot of casuals don't know who Cyborg is. Thus if Cyborg won if could end or severly hurt the advancement of women in the UFC as Cyborg is not nearly as marketable.

    Of course she is

    She doesnt want to stop her cycle to make 135, its quite funny

    She keeps talking about "I'm the true champion" and blah, blah, blah

    Breaking news!!! You're not a champion now and you have never been a champion at 135

    So, to say a person that is the champion at 135 is ducking you is ludacris, the champion at 135 cant even jump up to your weightclass that doesnt exist

    Herp the derp all over a pile of dumb*** Cyborg
