UFC offers Mike Dolce to help Cyborg get down to 135.

Source: TATAME
Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos (10-1-1 NC) reported that doctors recommend she not cut weight from 145 pounds to 135 pounds. UFC president Dana White said that the promotion would help her make the weight cut in safe way of dieting.

"She can get to this weight," said White. "We have an expert who can help you lose weight in a healthy way. We have Mike Dolce, who has wrestlers lose weight and still feel good and it's all about your diet. He is 100 percent ready to work with her and will not cost anything to Cris."

UFC hall of famer Tito Ortiz (16-11-1), who represents Santos, has told her not to make the weight cut and suggest she fight somewhere else. White thinks that Santos needs to make the weight cut now, while there's still interest in a 135 pound fight with Ronda Rousey (6-0).

"Cyborg needs to get on the boat," said White. "If she wants to fight in the UFC, she'll have to fight this category of 135 pounds. The stupidest thing about it is that she has Tito Ortiz as his manager."

No word on if Cyborg has taken the UFC up on their offer about a diet expert.

I don't care to be honest the size and strength advantage is why the fight is interesting. I have no doubt rhonda is the better fighter but the interest is whether she could overcome cyborgs physical advantages which she will lose if she fights at 135.

She should sign to fight at 135 and then not bother to lose the weight and come in at 145. That fight will be the main event and for a title, so you know the UFC will pressure Ronda to accept the fight. If Cyborg loses, good for Rousey, if she wins, it wouldn't give her a title, but it would create a lot of buzz for a rematch.

Tito telling Cyborg not to accept is bullshit. He is taking away an opportunity for her to be one of the first women to fight in the UFC and potentially prove she is the best women's fighter on the planet. Good job at holding her career back.

Cyborg is huge, she will kill herself if she tries the cut.
Tito is on the right, this time alone. :P

^You do realize she could diet down and lose a bit of the Roid mass and make it. It's not like she HAS to cut 10 more lbs of water weight, which obviously wouldn't be possible at her 145 physique.
