    Would Ronda back out of the fight and the UFC has to pull the main event of the massive PPV?

    Would make for an interesting scenario.

    This is assuming that Cyborg made weight at 135 at least one fight prior to prove she could make the weight in the first place.

    If Cyborg was above 140 I would demand 100% of her purse to continue with the fight

    There's no way Cyborg makes a healthy 135... and as long as Ronda is undefeated in her small pond, I doubt the UFC ever lets that fight happen.

    I agree with that. Prevents Cyborg from pulling some bullshit like that, which given her less than stellar record, is quite likely

    This is likely why Dana want Cyborg to make 35 and fight before she gets Ronda.

    rousey would refuse to fight and dana would agree that she shouldn't.

    Hmmm and thats exactly what Cyborg wants.
    So I think it would end up being a no fight at all.

    I believe Ronda would accept the fight. I don't think this is a crazy senecio. I wouldn't put it past Cris to pull something like this either, as she has done this in the past. Even going as far as to attempt to manipulate the weigh in scale to appear to make weight. Considering Cyborgs history I would assume there would be heavy penalties in the contract if that were to happen though.

    Fuckin armchair Dolce over here. Maybe you should go help her make 135 if it's so easy. Btw Cyborg would throttle Miesha.

    Question. Cyborg trains at 172-175lbs and cuts to 145 from there.

    What weight should she diet down to and train at to cut to 135? What's reasonable?

    This is why she should have to fight someone else @ 135lbs first...

    She would get killed by Sara McMann IMHO

    Why do you think they want Justino to make 135 and have two fights before the title shot?

    Safety is one thing, but every MMA fan worth his salt remember the bullshit at the Akano weigh-in.

    Pure and simple, she'd have to lose some lean muscle to get to 135. But she could do it if she were willing. And it very well could affect her ability to fight the way she would like to.

    She already did it. She lost 15lbs when she was in the UFC.
