    "I think that fight does 2.5 million [pay-per-view] buys." White

    If Dana actually believed that then he would stop trying to convince himself that Cyborg can make 135 or that Cyborg wants the Rousey's belt. She can't and she doesn't!

    If the UFC wants the fight make it at 140 or refuse to answer questions about Cyborg. Rousey and White are two successful people who seem to act as if they are petulant children. I don't believe for one second that Rousey is afraid of Cyborg but she knows that Cyborg is not going to weigh 135lbs for a one-time fight.

    Also did anyone else hear that Dana called Rousey a bigger draw than Oscar De la Hoya?

    The thing is, it's a huge risk Rousey/UFC taking the fight at a catch weight. Just say she loses at 140 catch weight with cyborg all that hype goes down the toilet and Cyborg goes back to fighting in invicta or wherever. It makes no sense for Dana/Ronda and will never happen unless Cyborg somehow gets down to 135.

    EDIT: or they turn the 135lbs division into the 140lbs division and see if Cyborg can get down there (but that ain't happening)

    The main point is all in the thread title "Cyborg/Rousey never happening and DW is full of s**t"

    But yeah, it's all business. Too much to lose if Ronda gets beat. But it's funny because UFC always pushes Ronda as this world beater, but when it comes to a real challenge in Cyborg, they shy away with a million excuses.

    It's laughable how Ronda always says she loves Fedor and tries to fight like Fedor. LMFAO. Fedor fought people who outweighted him by 25+ pounds. Yet Ronda can't go up 5lbs for a fight that would be bigger than the title? Which if she wins out of her weight class, that's the biggest thing that could possibly happen to her. Lol, what a joke Ronda is. But hey, it's just business.

    If the fight happens at 135 then what? Now cyborg has the belt but will she be ever able to make 135 again?

    I believe he was saying she was in the league of De La Hoya and similar guys who were huge superstars. Also, Cyborg CAN make the weight. Even with prolonged steroid usage and the long term benefit she has from it(tendon strength, muscle mass), she is still a woman and if she stops juicing, she'll still have less testosterone than an average guy and it will be hard for her to maintain muscle mass.

    I am in awe of the stupidity of people who actually think she can't make the weight. Even with all her bodybuilding and powerlifting exercises with heavy weights, any combat sport training includes a shitload of aerobic training(running, sparring, jumping rope, working the bags etc.) and without the juice she would not be able to maintain that muscle mass, being as how she is a woman. Even women with crazy freak genetics(which she is not, without roids she's probably slightly above average in terms of testosterone levels compared to an average woman athlete) have a harder time maintaining muscle mass than guys, she'd have no problem dropping a few pounds if she wanted to.

    Again, good testing is very expensive and the PED industry is always a few steps ahead of athletic commissions. That's why blood and urine of Olympic medalists are being frozen for 5-8 years, so they can detect it later if the PED was unknown at the time.

    Never ever going to happen that dude cyborg can't make weight and piggy Ronda is to scared to go up at all and knows damn well that's a bad match up for her. It's smart to avoid her over 5 pounds but not a good look for a champ. Also it's weird watching Ronda beat up girls who about to have a sex change who's ugliest cyborg or betch haha

    Bigger draw then Oscar hahaha no way Dana also said before the fight that ppv numbers were looking like they were going to be higher then ufc 189 one of the best if not most stacked cards of the year. Dana must be smoking something else besides bud.

    This. Cyborg is 3cm or 1 inch taller than Rousey, yet its supposedly impossible for her to lose the weight? Thats complete bull. Rousey is basically already considered the best in the world at this point. Cyborg should come to Rondas weight class, she has no business asking her to increase her weight so they can fight.

    It will happen. I fully believe Ronda will try and fight Cyborg for her last fight. Everyone knows this fight needs to happen, Just saw Kenny on the post fight mention it too. "How Cyborg will never make 135 but maybe at CW at some point this fight needs to happen". Ronda knows her career would be tainted if she never faces Cyborg. I think Ronda will just wait it out and try to get Cyborg down weight wise as much as possible and maybe some other demands met, in the end there Cyborg will be desperate. Until then twiddle your thumbs because it's gonna be a bunch of can crushing by both of them.

    If Thiago Alves can get down to 155 by properly decreasing muscle mass, that dude Cyborg can make 135.

    She's too scared to fight someone that she's not physically superior too, though. She does not have the skills to face Ronda. She'd be destroyed in under a minute.

    Why should Cyborg?

    They are calling each other out as well as the CEO of the UFC.

    Alves hasn't made it to 155 yet.
    Neither Cyborg or Rousey are afraid of each other.

    I didn't say she's afraid of Rousey...

    I said she's afraid of ANYONE that she's not physically superior to. She doesn't have the skillset to compete against someone who matches up with her physically. There's no way she will ever fight at 135 (even though she COULD make weight if she wanted). She's not even attempting to become a lighter fighter.

    Being the same height doesn't mean much.

    Anderson Silva is the same height as Carlos Condit but I don't see Silva making 170.
    George Roop and Nick Diaz are the same weight but Diaz is not making 145 or 135.
    Cerrone is also the same height as Roop and also not making 135.

    Ronda will become the Rickson Gracie of this generation, everybody will remember forever how he never wanted to fight Sakuraba.

    Cyborg has had 4 years to lose 10 lbs. She doesnt want the fight. She just wants to keep talking trash.
