    By a few pounds, say she comes in at 138 or 139, do you guys think Ronda would agree to fight like 99.9% of fighters do while recieving 20% of Cyborgs purse?

    Or would Ronda take the cowards way out and use the extra 3 pounds as an excuse to keep on ducking?

    She should refuse the fight on principle.

    In her position I'd assume Cyborg never intended to make weight and just wanted more of a size advantage without enduring the cut.

    holy shit.

    If they signed to fight there is no ducking. What is wrong with you people?

    If cyborg purposely misses weight,its pretty disgusting move. That was the one sticking point on the fight being made.

    Ok so if Tate missed weight by 3 pounds she would definitely agree to continue. But if Cyborg does it its time to stop acting like a real fighter and run right? Shit Vitor agreed to fight Rumble and he missed weight by like 10 pounds.

    Ronda has already discussed the issue of Cyborg possibly showing up overweight in the past. She knows it's a real possibility Cyborg would do it on purpose.

    Well what did she say? That she would run?

    And it is a huge possibility. Way I see it only way for Cyborg to get this fight is for her to agree to 135 knowing she won't actually make it then hope Ronda doesn't back out over 3 pounds the night of weigh ins.

    Size has been the issue since the start.

    If Cyborg agreed to make weight and failed, her problem.

    But go ahead, call the most successful female fighter ever a coward if it makes you feel better.

    I think it would be unprofessional on Cyborg part to do something like that, considering she can make 135 lbs if she wanted to.

    Ronda should refuse, and it would be proof Cyborg is still ducking and cheating. Don't blow up to 172lbs of ripped muscle. Go back to 160lbs like you were. Make 135.

    You're just 1 of those guys that bandwagon to be cool with no knowledge of the sport. Are your 3 fav fighters Rousey, Conor, and Sage?

    Guess you just get all your knowledge from Dana twitter and UFC pppv commercials.

    Bet your fav bball player is Michael Jordan.

    Bet your fav hockey player is Wayne Gretsky.

    You're not a real sports fan.

    I get my information from Cyborg, who admits she added 12lbs after running from the UFC. So she can add 12lbs and make 145, but refused to fight at 135. Duck.

    Based on?
    Have you seen the vid of her cutting when she made 140? It was a brutal cut for her.

    EDIT: Just saw your last post. I see your point, yet at the same time her and her nutritionists have said before that there is no way she could make it. Hell, I dunno, maybe she could, but I see no reason to be sure she could without drastic long term weight cutting

    And throw away her show money ?

    Just tap on the ground the second the fight starts.

    It would be an even bigger " fuck you " to The Borg, and the UFC. It's not like she has an undefeated record to protect.
