As former Strikeforce 145 lb. champ Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos comes near the tail end of her one-year suspension due to PED use, the questions continue to be brought up – will we see a women’s ‘superfight’ between 135 lb. champ Ronda Rousey and herself. Both ladies have led a case as to why the other should come to their weight class, as Rousey lays it out on ‘MMA Uncensored Live.’
“I just don’t understand where her sense of entitlement is coming from. She hasn’t fought in like two years — and won a fight that’s really counted. If this happened to a man — think about this — if this was the men’s division, and it was someone who hadn’t recorded a win in two years, then had their title stripped from them because they were caught cheating, would you expect them to come back from their suspension and be like, ‘ I want the biggest title fight out there, with all the considerations that I want. And, if not given to me, it’s because they’re running from me.’ You know? I just don’t see where she thinks she deserves to get every single thing that she wants, when she’s pretty much been exposed as a fraud.”
No surprise here as Rousey continues to slam the recently caught former champ. Rousey makes a good argument as to why Cyborg should not feel ‘entitled’ to fight at her desired weight, but it doesn’t change the fact that if neither women budges, the super fight can never happen. When pressed on the issue by the Uncensored cast, Rousey admitted that if it was last case scenario, she would in fact move to 145, but in the same token lays out why 135 is optimal to herself. Let us know if you think this fight will ever materialize and if it did take place, would women’s MMA be taken to the next level as Rousey suggests?
