And so we are all on the same page, let's not delude ourselves into believing that cyborg can't drop 10 pounds. That opinion is total bull.
Outside of Bellator, Invicta and strikeforce, women's MMA is non existent.
Who the hell is she going to fight in the organization she signed with? I don't even recognize their brand.
Are they going to pay more than strikforce? No.
Is there some large stable of talent there at 145 No.
Why not just go where the talent is? Cris made herself irrelevant but that's right, its Ronda that's ducking lol.
Ronda has faught at FW before, and Cyborg's doctor advised her not to drop down for health reasons. Rousey has smashed her way through Strikeforce's BW division. Everyones always calling for fighters to move up once they dominate a division, and then add the fact that the superfight is at FW aswell, it just makes sense. Does Rousey think anyone will continue watching another 10 first round submissions over nobody BWs?
Cyborg doesnt need to fight good fighters, because we watch her to see a wrecking machine. Roids or not, people watch her to see her knock bitches the fuk out, and even if the compitition is low, all she needs is for them to import some nobody can and she will smash them. People want to see someone knock every opponent out easily.
Rousey needs to fight good fighters because she's the 'greatest woman's fighter of all time'. Unlike Cyborg, she's the face of the sport. Everything is resting on her shoulders, and if she continues to beat nobodies who, like GrappleRetarded said, we generally think of to have more grappling weaknesses than Rousey has strengths.
People want to see knockouts more than armbars. It doesn't matter if you're a BJJ blackbelt, you like to see a good KO and you will watch if someone is taking out every opponent in seconds. Cyborg's whole character is just that, a Cyborg.
I believe Rousey is the better fighter, the more respectable woman and the GOAT of WMMA, but she needs this fight MUCH more than Cyborg does.
