    Seriously, the UFC should stop feeding easy opponents to Rousey. Anyone who has been watching MMA for at least a year or two knows very well that the recent opponents fed to Rousey, such as Bethe, had no chance in hell.

    What's worse is that the UFC has plans to rematch her with Miesha Tate, for the third time, someone she has already beaten convincingly...

    Meanwhile, fans have been asking for THE WMMA super fight: Cyborg vs. Rousey, but the UFC have been avoiding to make this fight at 140lb catch-weight like the plague by forcing Cyborg to cut to 135, knowing she won't be able to without seriously hurting her performance.

    Cyborg is the champ at 145lb.
    Rousey is the champ at 135lb.

    Let's do a 140lb catch-weight super fight.

    the UFC can help it if the quality isn't there....and you can make a case for Cyborg ducking Ronda just as much you can make it the other way around.

    fuck catchweight.

    Cyborg has had 4 years to lose the weight. She doesnt want to fight Ronda, just wants to talk shit about her.

    That's not really the UFC's fault if there is only one legit challenger left in the whole WMMA world and that person isn't even at Rousey's current weightclass.

    It's simple, coz there's no 145 women's division in the UFC. They can't even make a superfight on their male divisions atm. Well if Cyborg wants to fight Ronda, make the weight or else STFU.

    Bj was the 155 champ and he went up to 170 to fight Gsp, no problem, whereas Ronda refuses to fight cyborg at 140? It's not like she'd lose her title if she lost, she'd only lose her pride

    RR can only beat who's in front of here. IMO its way too much hype and crazy talk about GOAT due to the standard of opponent, but in fairness to RR she is just smashing them to bits.
    The only real viable opponent currently is Tate, she is a very good fighter, but she is going to have a third fight when in all honesty she got no where near in the previous two. I cant imagine the outcome being any different third time around.
    Cyborg talk is great, except she is in a different organisation, different weight class and show no REAL interest of fighting RR (if she did she would have dropped the weight by now)...so why even discuss it any more??

    Wow this is an original thread. How many more of these do we really need?

    Ronda is the champ at 135, Cyborg isn't even in the UFC. Lose the weight stop the roids make 135 and let's see what you look like.

    GSP was the 170 champ and he went up to 185 to fight Silva.... wait no he didn't.

    BJ Penn fought in the UFC and in a division hat UFC has Cyborg not so much.
    Its hard to fight some one that asked to be released from the contract and no longer fights in the same org as you.

    I don't think most people would consider BJ's pattern of match signing choices as being the best model to follow...

    GSP on the other hand...

    The division is so weak that there is nobody else. Instead of babying her they should bring in the 145 division and encourage her to step up and try to take that division over. They encouraged everyone else whether they stepped up or not. Anderson, GSP, JBJ, Aldo, Barao..etc

    You do realize that the 145 division is even weaker than 135?
    There are not even 5 legit fighters in that division.

    Ok then, let's use hughes/Gracie as example.

    Hughes was the champ and went up in weight to fight a catch weight against Royce.

    Why can't ronda?

    There's really no danger of that. Cyborg just turned 30.

    Do you ever get tired of trolling OP?

    Cyborg is not the 145lb champ. She is the champ at running from real fights.

    Cyborg was 15lbs lighter in the UFC than she is now. Explain how being 15lbs lighter is not enough to fight 10lbs lighter?

    If Cyborg wants to lose she can stop running any day.
