    The UFC offered Cyborg a fight against Honda in the first ever female fight in the UFC but she turned it down because reasons. Instead Honda went on an absolute tear and became the biggest star of the company when WMMA was still new and fresh in the mainstream. Cyborg was stuck in Invicta with the UFC trying to get her to drop to 135 while Honda was the face of WMMA.

    Looking at how everything turned out in the end it's pretty obvious that Cyborg made a huge mistake not fighting Ronda. She could have been a double champ by now.

    No Cyborg could not make the weight end of story. Also who cares about Ronda nowadays. Everybody know she was all hype and got humiliated in the first real fight she got into.

    She'd have to be a 135 lb fighter to duck a 135 lb fighter.
    She's never fought below 140.

    More like Cyborg wanted to fight Ronda, but on her terms

    Gina Carano ceeded alot to fight Cyborg, but she really didnt have a choice because she missed weight several times herself

    She could have cut some muscle, it wouldn't have been that hard

    Ronda wanted nothing to do with Cyborg and the UFC wanted nothing to do with Cyborg murdering their cash cow.

    TS is full of shit but it doesn't matter. Cyborg vs Nunes is the best WMMA fight of all time.... Ronda is irrelevant. Deal with it.

    Yup, and your assessment is incorrect ... some might say downright retarded.

    No, she would have starved to death if she tried to make 135, remember?

    Well they did try to make Honda vs Cyborg at UFC 157 but Cyborg turned it down so that makes your post incorrect ... some might say downright retarded.

    FYI, it is impossible by definition for fighters who fight at different weight divisions to "Duck" each other. It has more to do with with her looking like Wanderlei Silva in drag and the pool @ her weight class being so thin than anything else.

    Neither one of them ducked the other, it just worked out that they never fought, first because cyROID pissed hot in SF, then other reasons in UFC (mainly Ronda getting KTFO by Holly)

    I think the UFC knew damn well Cyborg couldn't make 135.

    Saying : " Cyborg ducked Ronda " disqualifies you from being taken serious.

    Nonsense. The person who dethroned Holly was a nobody?
