    First...had to edit this because the Shertards like pretending they know shit....

    She was "flagged" for "Spironolactone" ...a water pill that prevents your body from absorbing too much salt and keeps your potassium levels from getting too low. Just clearing that up for those who hear the phrase "FLAGGED BY USADA" right away jumps to steroids and cheating. When it really comes down to MEDICAL use. (or dick pills)

    That aside.....Now that they know she is not interested in making that 140 weight anymore, and NEVER 135. They now decide to create a 145 pound title and keep possibly the best WMMA fighter out of the picture?

    I will say that I respect this woman. I feel shes the best woman martial artist on the planet. Discuss if you wish, I would like to know if anyone agrees that the UFC doesnt want her to be the face of WMMA possibly due to her ...realistically unattractive looks?

    I'm sorry, you lost me half way through the post. In short, what are you trying to say?

    Absolutely, no one wants a masculine-looking woman to be the face of their organization

    She can't be the face fighting in the female equivalent of SHW, roids or not. Back in the Gina days when nobody knew shit about WMMA sure, but now other divisions are established while FW is still a wasteland with no competition.

    Sounds like Luke Rockhold and José Aldo could use some of these.




    Seriously now though, you cannot really be serious when you think that people who are jumping straightaway to steroids are being exactly unfair. Besides, the UFC not only let her fight more than once in a weight class that didn't even exist in the first place, they also CREATED the division.

    You can't really say they don't want her to be the face of WMMA.

    She's the face of steroid abuse, not WMMA.

    I'd prefer that she doesn't become the face of anything. Thanks.

    Like she said herself.. in Brazilian voice “Yesterday, they said they had no girls to make this division. Today, they rush to make a belt. They are saying something to me.” Im wondering if anyone thinks the same ? If she thinks so, why cant I think so?

    No, they don't want her messing up cards by pissing hot for roids or missing weight like she continually does.

    How can you respect someone who does that and messes with a scale claiming they had a "six pound bikini" on because they miss weight?

    Not afraid but it doesn't make sense from a business standpoint. Not the message you put out there

    "Right away I probably should clear up for those who hear the phrase "FLAGGED BY USADA" right away jumps to steroids and cheating. When it really comes down to MEDICAL use."

    Stopped reading after this - I believe this chain of thought is naive so everything thereafter is nonsense.

    No. Otherwise they would not have made a 145 lb division. Besides, the UFC can promote her as the destroyer and push some extremely attractive woman for the cosmetic part that they so clearly do sell.

    Creat a 145 division and keep her out of the picture. Wtf are you talking about, she was lobbying and pleading for 145, so they created 145 to give her exactly what she wanted you moron.

    Cyborg is the face of cowardice in WMMA. Calls smaller fighters cowards, can't pass a test,can't make weight, and looks like a dude.

    You lost me at best woman's martial artist.

    Obviously Cyborg herself never thought she was a good martial Artist or she would never roid in the first place?

    Wouldnt she put her skillz ahead, instead of just putting on as much muscle as she can? hell she is even bulking up even more forcing her out of 145lb fights.
