It's interesting how the top three imo have vastly different personalities.

3.) Conviction (not the greatest nickname. I'd like to fire the person who gave her that moniker)
2.) Cyborg
1.) Rousy

There's no doubting the marketability of 3 and 1. Cyborg reminds me of Christy Martin a bit. Relentless attacks like a rabid pitbull. She must have lineage from the Amazonian tribes.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Would be nice to have a tournament with Rousey and Cyborg in different brackets so they meet in the finals, ideally. I know nothing of the division and whose in it, a tournament would have give the feeling of depth and progression. Now it feels like only fights in the division are Rousey/title fights.

What happened to Carano did she retire?

What is it Dolce is doing to cut this huge amount of weight?

Chael was cutting way too much weight for his last couple of fights it was obvious, so Dolce maybe able to get their weight down but whether its a healthy thing he's doing is another question. Draining so much water out of the body has got to cause problems for your brain and some of your organs

If Cyborg can make a decent healthy 135 weightcut, im sure she can smash Rousey, and then Dana closes the doors on it. Cyborg is in the Tarec Saffadine situation, doesent matter if she wins the belt, she will never have a chance to even defend it. Its a shame, but Women's MMA in the UFC lives and dies with Rousey as the Champion, after that, the belt is nothing.

Im really starting to dislike Rousey, she comes off as not only a dumb blonde but a complete douchebag on top of it. It gets even more unnerving when Dana White is willing to run into a wall for her.

As far as I remember it were also her doctors who strongly disadviced such a big weight cut.

Dolce seems very shady to me, he does a good job of getting his guys to make weight(Alves in particular) but Chael looked very bad against Bisping and Anderson under him.
Agree. People should accept biology and that the human body can only cut a finite amount of weight.

Apparently he's creating food and supplements that are so hard for the body to break down that you end up losing weight while they are in the digestive process. Most of the time, they don't even have to do any jogging or pre-weigh in exercises either.

Also, I don't really see the fault that other people are talking about when Chael fault Bisping. As a matter of fact, he out cardio'd him and was dominant in the third round.

I'd bet my house (if I owned one) that the Dolce diet would earn disapproval if the FDA took a look at it. That cut is too big for a woman of Cyborg's size. She's gonna look like Skeletor once she's down to 135.

People are mistaking cutting weight, I.e the type of weight you lose in the days before a fight (water weight) with losing weight, I.e the type of weight you lose permanently through altering your diet.

Cyborg needs to lose muscle mass. Her weight loss needs to be a permanent thing. I think the 'she will die' comments were in regards to if she tries to cut too much water weight.

Cyborg can make 135 if she does it the right way. To say she is too big is rubbish as she wouldn't be as big if she wasn't on the juice. No woman gets that big naturally.
