The dance of contract negotiation continues between the UFC and Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos, said her manager, UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz. Their desire for a tuneup fight could be a sticking point.

I think Chuck did more damage ro Tito than we originally thought. The reason Santos gets no respect is because she tested positive. With that being said, I think she should get a tuneup fight before she fights Rousey. One reason is it will drum up interest after UFC fans see her smash whoever she might fight

If she can make BW give her a fight with Tate. I have no problem with Cyborg getting a tune up fight before a title shot. .

Hell no, Miesha's face is too pretty for that. Give her Sarah Kaufman, probably a better match up strength wise.

I agree. Would it be too inappropriate if the UFC were to separate the women's divisions into a pretty class and a, well, not so pretty class?

Sweet megadome, way to call that title fight coming up a tune up.

Makes sense on the fighter side and the business side. It tests her at a new weight class after a suspension, drums up interest for the title fight, and all the hardcore fans get to see a smashing!
