    What does one have to do with the other? What does diet/weight cutting issues on 8 weeks notice have to do with lifting weights?

    Cyborg has been cutting weight by adding muscle her entire career.

    Rogan talking as if he were a specialist about things he knows shit about. Nothing new under the sun. Business as usual.

    No he hasn't. Joe was calling for the UFC to make a women's 145 division and build it around Cyborg before all this happened. Just because he jokes around on his podcast doesn't mean he hates Cyborg

    She is supposedly not ready to fight yet because she is recovering from her last weight cut, yet she is deadlifting 300 pounds while recovering. Maybe that's his logic. Maybe it makes sense, maybe not. I wouldn't know.

    And I don't see him crying over anyone else.

    Nothing.

    Most people think powerlifting is the same as bodybuilding, so you'll get some ignorant responses. "Diet" would actually be the most important element in all of this.

    Weightlifting aside, I think raised eyebrows are in order because we're taking about 145, not 140 lbs any longer. 8 weeks should be enough time to clean up a diet and "pre"pare to cut. On the other hand, If there was a diagnosed medical issue like failed kidneys, she should just say it and save herself from most of the drama.

    RR and HH weren't asking UFC to open a new division for them and then turn down 2 title fight opportunities when the division was finally made. He doesn't hate Cyborg, he is just frustrated. Tito (Cyborg's manager/training partner) also expressed displeasure in her turning down the fights.

    They're desperate to put some type of major fight on 208 since it looks like Holloway won't be ready to fight Aldo that soon. Tito himself told Cyborg that she should have known the show was going to go on without her, it is a business and it sucks they didn't wait but unless you're making them a shit ton of money you can't expect the UFC to stop all their plans and wait for 1 person.

    I'm assuming he meant that of course she's having trouble making 145 if she's lifting heavy weights regularly, which she would have to be doing since she can deadlift 300. Lifting heavy weights adds muscle mass, therefore, weight. Why is she going in a weird direction like that considering that the UFC has started a 145 division for women? Extra bulk is counterproductive.

    Well I have a tweet from Joe calling for UFC to make 145 division cause he doesn't want to see her suffering to make 140 and you have "pretty sure he said"...so clearly you've already made up your mind about how you wanna feel about this and no real source or quotes will change that.

    Funny that a guy calling for "fighter bashing, flaming, PED accusations" is upset because Joe fucks around and makes joke about Cyborg looking like a man when she does. You can admit Cyborg looks like Wanderlei and not absolutely hate her

    Here is more of Joe calling for UFC to make a 145 division for Cyborg

    Yeah he also said Fedor was great and then turned on him w basbhing. SO he called for a 145lbs class and when she couldn't make it, it became OK to ridicule and bash her ???

    And calling for RIGHTS on SHERDOG is DIFFERENT from a professional commentator.

    Props to him for going for it in first place but NOT OK

    "THAT'S bizarre"

    OMG what horrible fighter bashing, so cruel and terrible that Joe said Cyborg lifting 300lbs when she has been saying her body is still recovering from her last weight cut is "bizarre".

    Oh he joked that she looks like Wanderlei on his podcast, so fucking horrible! Joe says a lot of shit on his podcast he would never say while commentating. He also said she fucks people up just like prime Wanderlei did. And yea pretty much everyone can agree that Cyborg now days looks a bit like Wanderlei
