After parting ways with Tito Ortiz as her business manager, Cris Cyborg has a few words for her detractors.

Dana just wants barbies and could care less about cyborg because shes not like ronda.

He's already made more demands. He knew there was little chance of Cyborg dropping weight so he did the usual 'if you want to fight Ronda drop down' but now that she's willing he's just putting up more walls for Ronda to hide behind.

I really want to see this dream fight but Cyborg isn't doing herself any favors by attacking Dana. She's not exactly the ideal ambassador for the sport as well ( so is Rousey ) which begs the question, "Who would I like to see - win?" I think I would like to see a double KO.

The UFC doesn't NOT bring in fighters to protect their current roster. Its just doesn't work that way.

Cyborg has a bad history. Failed to make weight at 145. Failed drug test. Tito. Smack talking the UFC. She's a risk for several legit reasons.

Requiring a fighter who's never made 135 and said that the attempt would kill her to do so before being signed with the UFC is not even remotely unreasonable.

If the UFC really wanted to protect Ronda, she wouldn't have just fought for the second time in 2 months against (arguably) her toughest opponent to date. She'd have had 6 months off and been fed Davis, Eye, and Nunes before McMann got a shot.

although you're right, making comments like that will make you even more right

Finally, somebody with half a brain around here.

Amen.

After Rousey's performance Saturday, does anyone REALLY think Cyborg will just drop to 135 and smash her? I'm not going to go crazy and say Rousey will out box her, but Cyborg is NOT invincible. Anyone remember Carano-Cyborg? Granted that was years and years ago now, but that was no cake walk for Santos. Rousey is a superior athlete to most human females. She just destroyed a fellow Olympic medalist in little more than a minute. Cyborg does not have those credentials, and she doesn't really have the momentum.
