    So Vitor and Wand continuing to fight in the UFC is cool with many of you...So why does Cyborg not get a pass? Is it because you all hate women that much? That's fucking pathetic. She deserves a shot at the title and all the 'she's on roids' talk is BS. She's been testing clean since the test she popped on, and Ronda can't hide forever.

    I didn't create the weight limit. And I hope she does fight in the UFC one day.

    This is a somewhat valid point... many fighters have been popped for PEDs and come back to fight in the UFC. But in the case of Cyborg, the UFC does not currently have her weight division. If she can drop 10lbs and stay in that weight division (not for one or two fights only), then I would say the UFC is in the wrong for not bringing her over.

    Why did you include a pic of Wanderlei in a wig with your post?

    It's about the fact that she doesn't fight for the UFC and her reputation is a threat to Ronda's primacy as the queen of WMMA. It's all about promotion, not a double standard for women. The double standard lies in whether you are part of their club. It's similar to Fedor or their little tiffs without other orgs like Bellator or what have you. The UFC will make every attempt to discredit their competitors whether it be legitimate, fair, or consistent with their treatment of their own fighters.

    Well...Im guessing its because both Wanderlei and Vitor have weights in the UFC they can compete at. UFC doesnt have womens FW division.

    But Ill guarantee you, if Cyborg is able to successfully drop to 135, look good and healthy, win her fight (especially if its against somebody like Lauren Murphy), and test clean, she will be in the UFC. There would be no reason for her not to be. The ball is in her court.

    I didn't make this thread because I was unaware of the lack of a 145 div for the ladies in the UFC. I am referring to all the Sherdoggers that say she doesn't deserve to fight in the UFC due to her past positive test.

    She'll make 135 and Zuffa won't have a choice but to let her fuck up Ronda. I wonder how many idiots will complain about 'roids' when that happens.

    Dude , they're complaining about roids way before the Yamanaka fight. What makes you think that if Cyborg wins , they won't start saying " OFC IT WAS STEROIDS " ? haha
