Did Cyborg test positive for roids after the Carano fight? Yes or no?

Can't test positive if you aren't tested. You think she just juiced for 1 fight only? She was on it for the Carano fight. No doubt about it.

Well there is no doubt about it the fact that she tested positive taints her entire career for me. It's far more likely she has juiced multiple times and didn't get caught then it is she was caught the only time she ever cheated. I'm also not alone. That information crushed Gina.

"I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't hurt by the whole thing. That fight with her was definitely the biggest moment of my mixed martial arts (MMA) career and at that time I had people around me telling me she was on steroids and everything. But, if there was a chance that she wasn't, I never wanted to take anything away from her [win]. She is a wonderful athlete, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't sting a little. In fact, I could have gone the rest of my life without hearing that. But, at the same time, she's a human being and a phenomenal athlete, so maybe someone around her was telling her she needed to do that when she really didn't. Maybe it was someone around her telling her the wrong things, I don't know. I kind of feel bad for her. Like I said, I could have definitely gone without hearing that because it makes me think well, you know, she just got caught with it this time, but what about all the other times? It's a bummer. I do feel bad to even have to say that, but I have to be honest: It really stung. It was the biggest moment in my life at the time. Then again, everything happens for a reason. After that I got to go through this beautiful experience making 'Haywire,' but even still, it stings."
I understand you are a fan but I think it's BS and IMO she has been cheating her entire career.

I guess I just have no interest in watching that juice monkey MAN-handle all thees women.

Ronda might have a chance at beating her.... but I guess I just don't see the point of the fight. It would be like Scotty Jorgensen vs Gray Maynard.... but actually worse.

Just a stupid size disadvantage....

IF Cyborg cut down to 135 I don't think the strength advantage would be that big. Now if Ronda was forced back up to 145 then I think Cyborg would have a significant advantage. Cyborg would likely have to trim down her natural weight a bit and lose a bit of muscle to make 135lbs.

No interest in seeing a steroid abuser win the belt from Rousey, I'm glad this didn't happen. Rousey is a legit talent that deserves what she has.

While this might be some what true... my feelings are more in line the poster below... Ronda doesn't deserve to lose her belt to someone who is a ridiculous drug abuser.

I really am skeptical about this because Dolce previously said that Cyborg trying to cut down to 135 would be dangerous, even with his help. If she cant make 135, then stop forcing her to fight on near death.
