    with the new UFC testing USADA there is no hiding for anyone. There is no reason why this fight shouldnt happen at any weight class.

    No. She fights at 135, if anyone wants to fight her all they have to do is make the weight and earn a title shot. EZ.

    Cyborg and her fans are annoying. Just make the weight, that's not unreasonable.

    Does Robbie have to move up to fight the Chris? No, they are in different weight classes and don't ever need to fight. Cyborg is clamoring to fight Ronda, not the other way around. You want it, go get it. But no she wants Ronda to come to her? Meet her half way? Thats stupid.

    Jose Aldo is considered one of the greatest by a good amount of people, too, but I guess that's complete BS unless he moves up to LW, right?

    GSP is considered the GOAT of MMA by some people (mostly since Anderson's failed test or whatever), but it only counts if he moves up. That's basically the kind of BS you're posting here.

    There is no women's 145 division in the UFC because women's 145 is so weak. 135 is pretty weak, too, but 145 is even weaker.

    Stop with this nonsense. You're embarrassing yourself.

    Yeah my last sentence needed clarification, hence the edit before your quote/reply. Hit that refresh next time.

    In any event, my point stands. Rousey doesn't need to chase a fighter to a different weight class to prove herself. I'm actually surprised Rousey would be willing to fight Cyborg at all, given her stance on steroids, but hey the door is open. All Justino needs to do is walk through it.

    Aldo is clearly the 145 GOAT.
    GSP is 170 GOAT and MMA GOAT.

    Why does Cyborg not have to go up and fight the 155 champ? Why would beating someone 20+lbs smaller after being caught abusing steroids make her GOAT? Not that she has much chance to do it, but why would that make her better?

    Again, she's pretty hard lined against steroid users past or present. Why would she make exceptions for one AND give cyborg the biggest payday of her career. It doesn't make sense.

    Cyborg has been crying about this for years and the door has been open, FOR YEARS.

    Would it be awesome? Not really, no. It would be handing a huge check to someone who she doesn't like to prove what exactly? Ronda is favored in that fight too.

    More importantly, Cyborg isn't dumb, this is just part of promoting the eventual bout at 135.

    it wouldn't be awesome to fight and possibly beat your biggest rival, who's also is heavier and been found guilty of steroids, who a lot of people think is the only one that can beat you?

    damn, you have no flares for the dramatics.

    Ronda ovary huggers and Cyborg fans are equally hilarious. This is pretty much the only intriguing WMMA fight left to make but it won't happen in all likelihood. In Rousey we have an attractive, English speaking dominant champion of a division the UFC actually has. Cyborg on the other hand, is an unattractive, former steroid abuser with limited English skills, she is however a dynamic, wrecking ball of a fighter with a legitimate chance of dethroning Rousey in pretty brutal fashion. From a fans perspective (White Knights aside) this is a must see, however, from a business perspective the risk versus reward is just too high. If they fight at a catch weight and Rousey loses, the interest in WMMA will die almost overnight. The UFC will be left with a champion who they can no longer make hyperbolic claims about and a fighter in Cyborg who they will have real difficulty marketing or doing anything with. The only way the UFC would come out on top in this situation is if they stack the deck to favor Rousey hence the need for the fight to be at 135 and for rigorous drug screening. Cyborg fans (aka Rousey haters) saying she's scared is nonsense, it's all politics at this point.
