At the end of the day, Rousey is champion of the women's bantamweight division, which everyone knows full well is 135 pounds. If Cyborg wants Rousey, then she can make that weight. The champion of the division doesn't have to bend to the beck and call of a known steroid abuser. Cyborg can either cut the weight and make 135, or she can stfu.

They aren't going to let Rhonda fight at her at anything but 135, they're protecting her by not doing 140 and putting Featherweight and Bantamweight together and it's pretty clear why. Cyborg would beat her to death.

Ronda was a FW fighter, Cyborg IS a FW fighter.

Why can't the fight happen at FW? It makes NO sense other than to bubble wrap Ronda.

Is Cyborg can slam Tito, I think she can pick up Ronda from the armbar tbh.

Not that I don't like Ronda, but it seems to me as though Ronda is the one that really isn't desiring this fight. If she REALLY wanted to fight Cyborg, she wouldn't care what weight the fight takes place at. Ronda is content with fighting the limited amount of talent she has at 135 and while she is willing to fight Cyborg if she can make the weight, she could care less about the fight if she can't, which is saddening.

But I think the person that really does not want this fight to happen is Dana White. He's pretty much alienating Cyborg out of an opportunity by making only a 135 lbs division, because Rousy is the icon for womens MMA now, and also because he knows that Cyborg is probably the only fighter with a real chance of beating Rousy, so he doesn't want his golden girl to lose. And I think by doing that, he's making a mistake because this is the fight that fans really want. If Rousy continues to dominate a weak division, people will lose interest in Womens MMA.

In short, Dana White is a Ronda Rousy fan, not a Womans MMA fan.

Cyborg could easily make 135 if she skips the roids. Muscle is heavy.

what about dolce? didn't he say he could bring cyborg down to 135 safely?

make it happen

I also think DW is bubblewrapping rousey, I have tons of respect for WMMA, but I think, and I believe it's the first time ever that I say that, that DW is doing it wrong.
