    Cyborg - I cant make 145 in 2 months
    White - She says she cant make weight in 2 months she needs to fight in another division goes onto say "its not the weight IT MUST BE SOMETHING ELSE"

    Think I figured out what the 'something else' is

    Cyborg is rumoured to be on the last fight of her Zuffa contract, he reportedly gets 100k a fight.

    Zuffa always attempts to renegotiate contracts before the last fight usually 1 or 2 before they contract is up.

    This would put Cyborg in a timeline where they are currently trying to renegotiate her contract to keep her from free agency and talking to Bellator whom she has a reltationship with Coker

    (Keep in mind Zuffa only signed her to stop Bellator from signing her and marketing her effectively as a star instead they kept her in Invicta on the downlow, took pot shots at her in the media and refused to make a division for her)

    Now she has one fight left so shes thought fuck it im going into free agency and just gonna take another fight so what do Zuffa do...

    Dangle the Title shot and 'cave' (perceived conceed and give her a title) - solves all her problems doesnt it??

    No! - This is actually the worst timing for Cyborg - Why?

    Because by giving Cyborg a title shot in her final fight that she would likely win it does 2 things

    1) It shows that not having the division is no reason for Cyborg to up and leave so if they choose to match an offer from elsewhere in the future NOT having the division cant be used against them in negotiation

    2) If Cyborg accepts the fight for a title on her last fight on the contract and WINS then her contract is automatically extended and she CANT test free agency (a beutiful trap by Zuffa)

    3) If she takes the fight and loses (not gonna happen in all likelyhood) but on the off chance it does then they can dismiss her, undermine her and cut her as they never had a good relationship with her anyway and market the new 145lb champ as the best in the world at that weight.


    The last fight title shot is just total contractual entrapment on Zuffa's behalf - both are not being honest. WHite and Cyborg both know this isnt about weight issue its about delaying resigning a contract and Cyborg signing herself into a title shot which would be checkmate on any negotiation or leverage she would have to leave the company or renegotiate her deal in the future

    This is whats going on with the Cyborg situation IMO and more likely than "cant make weight for 145 in 8 weeks" x 2

    I don't think the UFC gives a shit if Cyborg leaves and goes back to Invicta or anywhere else. Most people don't give a shit where she ends up, as long as she stops talking and tweeting.

    shes got 2 fights left on her contract ts.

    so sorry... no...






    its pretty simple, she only wants to fight in Brazil, cos the Brazilian commission let her come in a pound over weight.

    Yeah as I said they try to renegotiate a contract with 1 or 2 fights left on a contract and no she doesnt only fight in Brazil - she RARELY ever fights in Brazil in recent times through either Invicta or Strikeforce were all in America

    so sorry.... no....

    So why did with Zuffa knowing they didn't have a division for her to fight in and would be relegated to fight in a minor organization like Invicta?

    Nah. They just want Ronda to have both the 135 And 145 belt, so they must keep Cyborg away.

    and her previous fights in invicta and strikeforce were at 145 where cuttng was an issue for her.

    BOTH of her UFC fights at 140lb were in brazil where the commission are more generous with weight limits.



    So most recently, her fights have both been in Brazil and she has made it clear she wants her next fight in Brazil

    Ummmm...

    They have random testing 24/7/365.

    Your theory doesn't hold water.

    She was signing with invicta, not bellator when UFC signed her. They signed her to give her time to make 135 which she said she could.

    Let's say she has 2 fights left, the UFC is probably offering a shit contract paying her shit money 8 fights long!

    No matter what that bald fat fuck says, everyone knows this is about money. I don't blame Cyborg for wanting to fight out her contract in Invicta and become a free agent or get the most money she can get her Cyborg hands on plus PPV points. Whatever bitch holds that FW belt is going to be a paper champ until they get the real champ a contract she can live off of.
