    He's right. Cyborg at 135 is not happening, but if it does, expect to see the ghost of Cyborg to turn up against Rousey.

    She would definitely need to stay at 135 for a while to let her body get used to the weight change, even then I don't think she'll be as good as in 145lbs.

    She's a pretty tall and built woman.

    He's right. They are two great fighters, and it would be awesome to see them fight, but they are in different weight classes and that's that.

    This isn't like Pac/Mayweather where there is no reason for them to be ducking each other.

    One of them has to compromise to fight the other, and why even bother if that has to happen.

    DJ, wtf? You can't just mention the drug scandal(s) and brush it off, this is people fighting each other. Cyborg puts people at risk, especially since it's only ever TKOs, and Iirc, NOT ONE single clean KO. Cyborg is definitely going to try to hurt Ronda, and if it's at 145, that might be unavoidable...I'd still count on Rousey winning, broken jaw &/or nose or not. Cyborg probably kept the gains too. I wouldn't know, not a gear head, unless you count the benefits reaped from working out while high on top notch fire.

    He's right. Ronda is a coward for trying to weaken Cyborg as much as possible before the fight. No warrior spirit. Anyone can act tough when their only opponents would get submitted by high school wrestlers.

    Is Ronda your sister or something? Assuming this is not the case, let the fighters fight, that is why they are there, to entertain us and to make they money by doing that. This is not an olympic sport or anything. No woman fight would entertain fans (except a few, like you) more than Ronda x Cyborg and this is enough of a reason for them to fight. We are not talking MM x Lesnar here, its a minimal difference between these 2 girls and they can easily arrange it, cw if anything.

    He is not right. Cyborg is a coward for trying to fight a much smaller opponent while roiding. No warrior spirit. Anyone can act tough when their only opponents got submitted by Ronda's opponents

    Would you allow Overeem to juice up for his fight with JDS? Because unless your answer is yes, you are a hypocrite

    Mighty Mouse better watch out, Ronda might demand a fight with him knowing full well it would never happen. She is really good at that.

    It's like demanding that Weidman, already a massive MW, drop to WW or something to fight the champ there. He'd obviously be near-dead and look like complete crap.

    I like MM and think he is a great fighter but he's jealous of the popularity of the women's divisions and that no one gives a shit about his. :icon_cry2

    test cyborg. shes on peds? no fight
    test overeem. hes on peds? no fight

    how hard is that? Overeem took his juice for a lonnnnnng time. now apparently is out of it, but he is still likely have a lot of strenght from those times. Am I worried about JDS? Nope, he is the better fighter regardless of that and will crush Overeem.
