The UFC should stop feeding easy opponents to Rousey. It's getting ridiculous

    If you were the UFC why would you make the match on Cyborg's terms though?

    Sure, they could pay big money to both Ronda and Cyborg to fight at 140 or 145. But what for?

    Cyborg wins, even at 145, and now Ronda is no longer invincible. The aura is broken, weight class explanations or not. You can't unring that bell. So now they have a tarnished champion and some 145 pound superbeast that stole her thunder, and the UFC doesn't even have that weight class.

    It would just be stupid business.

    Let's not gild the lily here. Cyborg is the ONLY other relevant women's mma fighter. The ONLY one. If ufc doesn't make this fight happen then I lose all interest in women's mma. I was rooting hard for Jessica eye to win against tate because let's be honest with ourselves. Who really wants to see rousey vs tate again? It's not a rubber match it's tito/shamrock 3. I tire of all the finger pointing and talk. Make the fight happen.

    A convincing win by JoJed against Gadelha and the catchweigh 'superfight' at 125 is more UFC friendly.....Rousey may struggle getting down to that though.

    Cyborg would be bigger and stronger than Ronda at 135. Are you saying she is so unskilled she needs a huge weight advantage to compensate?

    They signed Cyborg. Cyborg agreed to make 135, she has thus far refused.

    Cyborg dropped 15lbs. she then put it back on in Invicta while claiming she was trying to lose weight.

    From a business perspective they should keep doing what they are doing

    The only way the fight is going to happen is if Cyborg makes weight

    At this point ufc should consider bringing some women in from the wwe to bolster women's mma ranks. Sure they won't beat rousey, probably, but at least it would make for some more interesting matches

    These have to be the most redundant and tiresome threads on any forum ever.

    I see no problem with a 140 lb catch weight fight. Eat a hamburger ronda. Viola. You're 140 lbs

    Rhonda brags about being able to beat Cain.

    If she can beat a 240 pound man then what is hold up with a 140 pounder (a mere 5 pound difference?)

    Both sides need to quit playing games and make this happen

    It does make ronda seem petty to stickle over a few pounds when she's been known to talk shit about how she would have beaten up ray rice in the elevator blah blah blah yackety yack. If she were so insanely confident youd think she'd jump at the chance to fight cyborg. I mean steroids don't help your technique at all.

    Woman MMA is marginal and young sport. This is the roster. No other opponents, no better opponents. You know: You're a one-eyed man in the kingdom of the blind.

    UFC are the main obstacle to a catch weight fight, not Ronda. And rightfully so as it's a completely unnecessary risk to take to please a handful of idiots on here.

    EVERY single dominant champ is accused of fighting scrubs. The truth is that they aren't fighting scrubs it's just that they are dominant and so much better than everyone else.

    I think these types of threads miss the point. WMMA is inherently flawed and marked by a complete lack of talent/athleticism/anything. Even if the Cyborg fight happened and Rousey won, I'd say it's the ONLY decent win in her entire career.
