'Cyborg' To Rousey: 'Step Up B*tch!'

'Cyborg'Santos to Ronda Rousey: 'Step up b*tch, I'll kick your ass with one hand tied behind my back'

By Adam Guillen Jr. on Jan 30, 11:00p

Cristiane 'Cyborg' Santos is raving mad at critics who say she is afraid to step up against UFC women's bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey. In fact, she is willing to fight 'Rowdy' with one hand tied behind her back to prove she can 'kick her ass.'

Oh no she didn't!
Former Strikeforce women's Featherweight champion Cristiane Santos is fed up with all the naysayers, including Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White, who feel she is ducking current Bantamweight champ, Ronda Rousey.

"Cyborg" wants to make it clear she is "not afraid" of "Rowdy" and her slick submission skills; she simply can't make the drop down to 135 pounds. However, Santos is more than willing meet Rousey at a catch weight of 140 pounds. If that's not enough, she will gladly step into the Octagon against the former Judoka with one hand tied behind her back.

Furthermore, "Cyborg" believes White is looking for every advantage that will favor his new golden girl, which is the reason he wants the fight to take place at bantamweight.

The Brazilian took to her Instagram and Twitter accounts to vent out her frustrations and lay down the gauntlet:

Quote:
"I am not afraid of Ronda! I will fight her anywhere and anytime for free. Everyone knows I barely make 145, but I am willing to sacrifice and meet her half way at 140. I can't believe Dana says I want nothing to do with Ronda. What he wants me to do is fight Ronda with both my hands tied behind my back or comatosed-so that she can have a chance-which is what making me fight at 135 is -- to finally shut everyone up -- I will fight Ronda with one hand tied behind my Back at 140lb and still kick her ass and prove that I'm the real champ not her- and let the winner take ALL come on rhonda step up bitch!"
So what's a measly five pounds among frenemies?

Well, according to "Cyborg's" doctors, should she drop the extra baggage, it will put her health at risk and will likely affect her chances of ever having children.
Santos' manager, former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz, recently revealed he has been trying his hardest to make the fight happen between the two female mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters, but the task has proven tougher than he imagined.

Nevertheless, Santos has just about had enough of everyone doubting her willingness to step up against the face of women's MMA and will likely be a very interested observer at UFC 157 when Rousey takes on Liz Carmouche on Feb. 23, 2013, in Anaheim, California. And if she wins, rest assured "Cyborg" will ratchet up the name calling since everything else she has done to date has fallen on deaf ears.

If you insult, denigrate and defame them, they will come.

I am actually very interested in this fight regardless of what weight class it takes place in. I really do not even care who wins; just like the Curanno fight I just wanted to see them battle it out.

Ronda fought at 145 before. She could meet the challenge at 140. I'm salivating for this title fight. Both are apex female predators. I see two drastically different results. This should be the first female main event...but then how would they top it.

I really think the UFC making the womens division at 135 was a mistake. I think they should have done 140 and had the best of both worlds because I don't think either division has the talent on its own to justify a title in the UFC.

Either way 145 is were I want to see the fight, Cyborgs size and strength advantage is exactly why the fight is interesting take it away and its just meh. Kinda like Anderson Silva's fights at LHW, nobody would have had interest in James Irvin/Silva at MW.

It is what it is. UFC has a 135lb division. If Cyborg and her man muscles can't get to 135 then so be it.

Guy fighters don't even make catch weights out of rivalry. UFC couldn't get Anderson and GSP in there after 2 or 3 years of talk. Don't see why Ronda would fight her at 140.
Ronda can fight Liz Carmouches of the world and the division can die out rather soon.

Truer words were never spoken. I think all of us here are in agreement that the UFC cannot support two women's weight classes, and while Rousey is Dana's baby, he should have realized that the future of the UFC womens' division rests not with Rousey but with the ready availability of competition.

Ronda is in the biggest MMA organization in the world. She doesn't need to "step up." But Cyborg certainly does. Shes the one who needs to make that cut. If not, the UFC doesn't need her. There is no 145 lb division. Then again, they could just give Ronda another free belt and call her champion of the 145 division as well.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

As much as the UFC can sell Ronda, we all know Cyborg is the baddest female fighter on this planet regardless of where she fights. We can support and praise Ronda all we want, but at the end of the day everybody knows Cyborg is on a different level. This is what happens when you fight cyborg:

I think Rousey is in trouble if they manage to agree on a catch weight fight.
