    If the UFC is gonna put on RR/Tate again, sadly, there's nothing we can do. But the fact that they're thinking about letting this fight ride in on the coattails of Aldo/McGregor is a farce and a weasel move by Dana White and the UFC. I'm not saying that Rousey isnt a draw, she is, but that's because she's had different opponents her past 3-4 fights. But Dana and the brass know full well that a 3rd fight with Tate is laughable at this point. If this fight was worth anything, dont you think the UFC would've let it be the main event of its own card? Of course not because no one wants to see it. That's why the stuck it next to fight people actually wanna see. RR/Tate wouldnt bring in anymore PPV buys to the card if it had another co-main event. But Dana had to try to give Ronda a big payday for a fight that is basically a pointless filler fight.

    Now, the real truth about Ronda is this: she wants no part of Cyborg. You can argue the weight thing, steriods bust, or "coming to the champ" till you're blue in the face but let's look at it realistically instead of a bunch of blind followers.

    When Ronda was fighting @ 145, SHE called out Cyborg. So then, outta nowhere, she immediately announces after her fight with Julia Budd, that she's going down to fight Tate. This was 2 months before Cyborg was caught for PEDs. But yet this is the excuse she stills uses today. Cyborg has not tested positive for anything since so whats the issue now? Oh yeah, the weight and "coming to the champ" excuse. Why cant she fight her @ 145? ASilva fought a former champ 20 lbs above his weight class and that didnt stop him of the UFC from putting the fight on. Wasnt that fight supposed to be "punishment" for the Silva/Maia fiasco? Now back to Ronda. This fight shouldnt be about a title, it should be about who the best female fighter in the world is. She was willing to fight Carano, who herself has had trouble making 145, but not Cyborg. That sounds like ducking to me. Id she loses to to Cyborg at 145, she can always come back and dominate a weight class that's clearly 3 steps behind her all she wants. But lets not lie to ourselves, the UFC/Dana White and Ronda Rousey want no part of Cyborg.

    Oh look another "Ronday Rousey vs Cyborg" thread

    Couldn't have put this in one of the 8000 other threads that have popped up over the weekend?

    Here's the bottom line on this

    Cyborg signed a contract with the UFC that she would drop down to 135 for the fight with Ronda.

    She signed that contract.

    Thus she has to make weight if the fight is going to happen.

    End of story.

    Ok well Cyborg has to do a test weight fight. She's said it herself.

    You want Rousey to not fight and not make the UFC money and wait for Cyborg? What about the contenders that are employed in the UFC? They are supposed to wait for some girl who isn't even under contract?

    It doesn't matter if fighters fight each other 3 times or 4 times or 5 times. Sure it's better to get new matchups but if the same contender keeps winning and earns the shot over and over then that's the way it is. Fans need to accept that.

    Anyone who thinks a 3rd fight with Tate is "laughable" is an idiot.

    Tate gave us Ronda's closest fight by a WIDE MILE. And since then she has won 4 straight, including beating Cartouche, Eye and McMann

    It's pretty silly to suggest that a fight between by far the most popular women's fighter in the world vs by far the second most popular women's fighter in the world wouldn't sell - especially since they've had one great fight (in Strikeforce) and one long fight (relative to Rousey's other fights) and Tate is one a 4 fight winning streak in which she's displayed some new tricks. It would sell huge.

    As far putting the fight with Aldo/McGregor - I'll believe it when I see it. The business suits are probably already on the way to kick Dana's ass for suggesting putting Ronda and Conor McGregor on the same card.

    fuck manborg. She has probably abused roids her whole life so I am fine with her not getting a shot at Ronda so she does not get that check she is looking for.

    Nonsense, the UFC would love to get Cyborg in there against Rousey.

    As big as she is now, the excitement will eventually wear off. How many joke opponents does she have to beat in less than a minute? I don't know, but they are already stretched thin with a 3 match against an opponent she's destroyed twice.

    A fight with Cyborg would be a mega fight. Everyone loves Ronda and Cyborg is a very easy villain to sell. We are talking Rocky vs Drago type stuff here.

    Quite frankly I have no interest in Ronda fighting anyone else.

    You need to realize that Ronda is the champ at 135 and has no reason to do anything except keep doing what she's been doing. Unless Cyborg comes to 135 to fight her, she is completely irrelevant to Ronda.

    I agree Rousey vs Tate 3 is a joke of a fight, but whatever.

    R3 qualified her move down to fight Tate as a way to set up champ vs champ fight with Cyborg.

    Cyborg then got popped for steroids and R3 doesn't make consessions for cheaters. In particular females using male hormones.

    Of course you wld leave those details out of your poorly thought out post.

    If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.

    If Tate beats the other girls...what do you do? She has won 4 in a row.
