    Why do they have to build a weight class? Why can't they just bring Cyborg in to fight at 145 anyway? I don't see her ever making 135, though it's clear the UFC has interest in her, so why not just bring her in to fight the same girls she's fighting now? Cyborg would probably turn out to be a huge star in the UFC, and she could headline some free cards. I think it would be a great idea, plus I'm sick of always seeing her name tied with the UFC and she's not a UFC fighter.

    Either way, can't wait to watch her fight again, amazingly awesome fighter to watch. It really bugs me that everyone now knows who Ronda is and everyone is always talking about her, yet they have no clue who the actual baddest woman on the planet Is

    Bring her in and do what with her? If she's at 145, who in the UFC will fight her, especially if they don't have any other 145 fighters?

    Well she's essentially tied in with Zuffa through Invicta. So they're keeping her around in some since of the word. In case she is able to make 135 and a bout between her and Rousey should come to fruition

    Who would fight her? Everyone who used to fight at 145 ran away to 135 including Honda.

    fucking just let it die. please. borg isnt making 135, she isnt a "star", and there's zero comp at 145. if ronda wasn't riding so high, none of this wouldn't even matter. she's just trying to stay relevant at this point.

    There is nobody at 145. Marloes, Budd and Talita Noguera are in Bellator. Even Marloes said on the 3 amigos podcast Invicta has no other FW's.

    So the actual bad ass woman needs roids and a Barry Bonds forehead and have 15-20 pounds advantage over her opponents?

    Why would they bring her in if she has no division to fight in?

    Womans 145 is pretty terrible, it's actually worse than 135 which is the worst division in the UFC. There is no point in bringing in another division, they have 125 because there are a handful of good fighters there and they have 135 to have Ronda and Tate which are both sorta draws.

    Cyborg herself isn't even relevant, well, she is sorta but only because she has managed to link herself to Ronda. Meaning the only thing she can offer to the UFC is to fight Ronda at 135lbs, and even then the UFC only wins if she losses.

    She also has a history of steroid use.

    For some reason, they are hesitant to bring in new weight classes. I would just like to see them absorb invicta in to UFC and then have all female cards under a UFC / Invicta banner for free on television. I wouldn't pay a dime for fightpass.

    Fight the same girls she's fighting now? Or any other 145er out there? It's not about them anyway, it's the Cyborg show. So why not just sign Cyborg to annihilate these girls. It just bugs me, Cyborg is so high level and she's not in the UFC, I get the circumstances but why not bend around them. Cyborg belongs in the octagon regardless of anything

    So the best MMA fighter for women is at 135? Cyborg is the real champion of all women, doesn't matter if she's not in the UFC...it's not her fault after all, there's no 145 division there.

    Keep telling people Cybro is wolf tickets. And opens her mouth to remain relevant and sell fight pass. She too scurred to fight using only her skills at 135, also ducking that random year round drug testing that includes blood now.
