Cyborg-Rousey-UFC-Fight-2014

Cris Cyborg is the most lethal striker in Women’s MMA and she is about to make a move to challenge the World’s #1 ranked fighter, Ronda Rousey.

Here is Cris’ manager George Prajin in an interview with MMAJunkie.com.

“I think she could make 135 for a few fights; I just don’t see her doing it for her career,” Prajin said. “[The UFC] just didn’t make it easy. They wanted six fights, and they also didn’t want to share the pay-per-view revenue with Cris, and those are just a few things that we felt weren’t fair.”

“If the UFC really wanted this fight to happen – if Ronda really wanted to show the world … that she’s the best in the world – then step up. Say, ‘Hey, I’ll gain that extra five pounds.’”

“She’s fought at 154 in the Olympics and 145 in Strikeforce. But obviously, she’s hiding behind the fact that she’s the 135-pound champ and she doesn’t have to do anything. Well, Cris is the 145-pound champ. If Invicta had a 155-pound title, she’d go up and win the belt, and also go down to 135, because I don’t think anyone has a chance with Cris.”

Those are bold words, but true in a sense. Rousey has fought the majority of her career at 145 lbs and up until her UFC debut that was her championship weight. A catch weight with no title implications at 140 lbs wouldn’t be foreign at all to Rousey and would allow her to remain the face of the promotion.

For now Cris is comfortable fighting at 145 and with the Invicta FC promotion for which she currently reigns as women’s champ.

“[Invicta] is a relationship we want to continue for a long time, and Shannon’s been so great to us,” he said. “But contractually, [Justino vs. Rousey] could happen in the fall. And to be honest, I think if the UFC offered the fight, I don’t think Shannon would stand in the way. I think she’d be very supportive, and even if she were contractually bound, I think she would allow Cris to fight Ronda in the UFC. I know that for a fact.” – Prajin

This is the fight everyone wants to see and if Dana White claims to care about the competition aspect of MMA as much as he says he’ll get this done in 2014.

    Fact: Ronda Rousey is the Anna Kournikova of the UFC!
    Fact: Ronda Rousey is scared of Cyborg!
    Fact: Cyborg would kick Ronda Rousey’s ass!
    Fact: Dana White is scared of Cyborg! Why? Because he remembers what Cyborg did to the UFC’s former media darling, Gina Carano.

    Dana White wants to market Rousey as the face of female MMA. As you know when it comes to women’s athletics, sex sells! Cyborg isn’t sexy, she is a fighter who will kick Rousy’s ass, and Rousey knows it!

      Clueless doesn’t even begin to do justice to your comment!

      # 1 – carcinoma was never in the ufc

      #2 – rousey was all set to best the hell out of the juicer and break her arm to boot when the lying, cheating juicer high-tailed it out of the ufc altogether! And you probably still think the reason was weight, right! CLUELESS!

      #3 – bleacher report ( aka – all things against ronda rousey) is the only outfit pushing thus crap. There are a dozen fights in rousey’s division she could have, cyroid has two cans and then nothing!

      #4 – if Dana white scheduled garbage like this, if I was rousey, the second the fight was over I’d tell white and the ufc to get lost! They would have proved all they care about is putting money in their pockets at the moment, and have no interest in the long term viability of women’s divisions of current ufc women fighters!

      #5 – IMO the only real future this lying cheating scumbag (cyroid) has would be on a movie set as either Baghdad bob, or, as a lead in a future possible movie entitled rise of the ugliest zombies!

      Cris lying ass cheating justino and your lying ass manager ortiz, for the sake of sanity in humanity, and for the well being of mma and combat sports anywhere, get lost!!!!!
