    So you actually would rather see Cyborg fight Julia Budd and Blencowe than Holm, Cat or Nunes who are top BW?

    LOL.

    Yes, unless Cyborg is moving down who wants to see her face 135ers? Especially when they're just names, but other than Nunes aren't in particularly good form at their own weight anyway.

    Hope so, as UFC is sure dropping the ball with her. The only fights for her are Nunes (who wont fight her), GDR (who wont fight her), Holm (who cant get a deal) and Shev (who is likely going to 125). So, that is all to say that there are essentially no fights for Cyborg.

    I think at some point, a UFC rep is gonna hand Coker Cyborg's contract and a $50 bill and go "she's your problem now."

    This would be ideal on all counts.

    Agree. At least 1/3 of her "resume" would eventually be made up of women who were actual 145lbs. fighters (even if three of the current six have zero wins).

    Yeah that UFC belt really means a lot.

    Beating up a flabby soccer mom can for it really shows its worth.

    All the 145es in the world are just lazy 125ers and 135ers.

    Is that confirmed? I would assume so given her fight with Holly despite the October 2017 expiration clause in her contract. But was that maybe merely an option that she could waive?

    In addition to signing UFC 219 bout agreement, Cris 'Cyborg' Justino also signed a new deal, per Dana White. Justino was at the end of her last contract and strongly considered fighting it out, but ultimately came to terms to stay in UFC.

    PRobably got a nice pay raise and a piece of the PPV not to mention teh biggest fight she can be in and also possible fights down the road with Anderson, Cat and Nunes.

    Why would they do that when they just signed her to a new deal?

    They've only had one fight for her at her weight class so far. Granted it was in july, but there was a long stretch before that. Im not convinced Dana is over his grudge against her either.

    She was offered two fights in Jan/Feb and turned them down and also had the USADA stuff so that delayed things for a while.

    She could have fought three times this year.

    She has a name and it's only gonna take watching her a few times like my group of mma friends who didn't like her than gave her a chance fell in love because of her style

    There's a reason she fought Gina she has a Tyson unstoppable effect
