This is them trying to strongarm the brass at Zuffa...making it abundantly clear that ahe will not fight at 135. These tactics have never succeeded with Zuffa and have almost always predated someone's fall from grace...in other words a very bad managerial decision. The situation is sticky, I know...the Rousey division and her first fight being a PPV spot over Hendo Machida is ridiculous, I agree...however WMMA has given me a fair amount of good times. I don't want to be an American hypocrite and be unsupportive of fun fighters because of some people's unwillingness to cooperate and others poor business decisions. I just enjoy seeing two talented fighters scrap. With the scarcity of the only WT Division that Zuffa is supporting for WMMA, and the complete lack of developement I am seeing in the UFC for WMMA, I just don't see it lasting very long at all...it's just a fucking shamefull trainwreck to watch.

UFC should gets some fights going at 145 too. If they really want to do something w/ Womans's MMA it wouldn't hurt to have rousey at 135 and cyborg at 145 and ultimately if they both remained dominant they could probably make the "super fight" happen down the line.

Invicta she may go
But another super fight Ufc didn't make
I think if Ufc was to be more encouraging her to make the cut this may have played out
But Dana throwing a lot of cyborg is ducking and doesn't wanna face rousey.

Let's be honest Dana likes talking shit
And causing problems with fighters

I don't think this is a bad move. especially if she gets picked up by invicta since they'll let her fight at her natural weight. the UFC only is trying to capitalize on Rousey and Rousey alone. and in a year or 2 we'll see where that gets them with WMMA. bad move by the UFC having the one weight.
