It’s definitely putting the cart way before the horse, so to say, but UFC president Dana White on Saturday night responded to Cris Cyborg’s recent comments that she is ready to drop down to 135 pounds to come after Ronda Rousey… in the Octagon.

White said that he’s open to the idea, but has a couple stipulations before the Octagon door is open to the current Invicta FC featherweight champ.

    Have her cut to 135 in Invicta win there title, come to the UFC fight Alexis Davis, McMann, Cat or Sara Kaufmen & if she wins big then Rousey next!

    Cyborg will never fight in the UFC for one simple reason: She won’t submit to the drug testing requirements.
    When the UFC bought out Strikeforce they bought out her contract, but demanded (just like they do with everyone else) that she submit to regular steroid testing. Guyborg immediately asked to be released from her contract.
    Guyborg is a disgrace, but not as much as her stupid fans.

      her competitors are all using hgh , igf , peptides and the rest . To believe otherwise is foolish .

      • 700Level

        Yeah, and “her competitors” aren’t in the UFC. If she wants to fight in the UFC than pass the drug testing requirements and compete. If she’s not willing to do that than she should STFU and so should you.

      U are such indiot ! Wend my son broke his legs playing football , and his legs almost got imputation , she took the time too visit and send flowers , and she even doesn’t no us !! Whom does that !! Only a TRUE champion ,, and I’m he fan , my 12 years e her fan ,,

      • 700Level

        Nothing you said has anything to do with the FACT that Guyborg ran for the hills as soon as the UFC said she would have to do the same drug testing everyone else does.

  • Just a fan

    Delay delay delay. When a promoter ignores a huge pile of money in a fight that could dethrone his cash cow, something is wrong. Dana should want to see who the baddest woman is, not protect one of them by pushing Cyborg away. Make the f-ing fight already! This is gonna be like Pacquiao and Mayweather, and that is sickening. Have Cyborg make weight safely in front of the athletic commission, them book the fight for 3 months after that. All this December talk sucks! No other women really stand a chance at beating either of these two, so have them face off! It would be huge for women’s MMA.

    • Solidmemory

      Cyborg said she has a kickboxing match then she’s gonna go for the invicta 135 title. She’s the one that said December

  • UOENO

    If this fight actually does happen and Rousey defeats Cyborg, Dana White will be so happy he’ll probably do the dougie or crip walk in the octagon after the fight while Ronda throws up two middle fingers like 2pac or some shit. ahahaha That would be funny as hell.

    • brad king

      yea about as likely as the moon suddenly blasting off towards jupiter! Reality Rhonda throws up her two gloves and starts squealing”No Mas” No Mas Champion!”

      • 700Level

        Reality is Guyborg is a roided up cheater. She had her chance to be in the UFC and she ran back to Brazil as soon as they told her she had to do the same drug testing everyone else does.

  • horace

    This is America and Cyborg ain’t American and cannot speak English. Make CYborg fight at 135 lbs for a minimum of two years and 4-5 fights before Rousey.

    • Guest

      Is america full off rude Chinese and Korea and go on

  • horace

    Dana and the UFC should just tell CYborg to go to hell or back to brazil which ever is worse. close call.

  • horace

    The stench of Cyborg is not needed in the UFC air. No speak English. steroid past. Looks like a man. Talks like a man.

    • MuayThaiFood

      You’re back Horace’s ass, you little racist, dim witted, P.O.S.

      • horace

        go pull your rickshaw slope. I could blindfold you with a strand of dental floss.

        • MuayThaiFood

          I’m not Asian and you’re not very clever. That’s what I would expect from an ignorant, uneducated, racist loser.

  • Elle Murad

    Cyborg the badssssssss woman in the planet is coming 4 u pan face !!

    • 700Level

      Guyborg ain’t coming anywhere near any company that actually does legit drug testing and forces its athletes to compete on a level playing field.

  • Elle Murad

    They all scared , very scared !! Cyborg takes drugs test now u hates?? BRAZIL is the only place that have real champion , beside Jon’s and Velasquez everybody else is a joke !!

    • Wolf Ticket

      You sound like a very stupid guy from Brazil. If all the other champs are jokes, why does not someone (from Brazil) just come and get their title?

      PS. No offense to other Brazilians. Also, I have Barão as #2 P4P.

      • Elle Murad

        Dude-you got way too much time on your hands. Thanks for the laughs!

    • Johnny Lopes

      you are another ignorant brazilian who thinks brazil runs the sport, yo its a new generation mulekii… Brazil is done, Aldo is 175 pounds losin weight to fight guys 145 (not impressed) and Barao is fightin chumps, nobodies, washups and hasbeens you idiot…. and Demetrious Johnson (125) fights tougher guys then Aldo, GSP beat everyone and the top 5 welterweight not 1 brazilian, Anderson is another fought chumps and lost to a REAL CHAMP in weidman… then Jones and Cain i dont needa talk about Light and Heavyweight, they got it locked down for years…. Brazilians fight borin fights, suck, get lucky submissions, and then cry when they lose, and you call that a real champion? GSP (hendrix or Lawler), DJ, Pettis, Cain, Jones, Weidman all more real champs then anyone in brazil they fight tough guys, brazil fights chumps n then cries when they lose…. keep watchin Brazil Fight Nights and all them decisions and call Brazil real champs lol last week in brazil 13 decisions, brazil lost half includin my partner Joe Proctor beat marcellos ass, then last night there was 4 decisions in America lol not 1 KO by a brazilian…. you mei amigo are called ignorant and brazilians supremesist … that means you think Brazil is better then anyone at anything

      • MuayThaiFood

        You write that and call someone else ignorant? Did you go to school beyond the 3rd grade?

        • Johnny

          am i sittin here callin my nationality the best? thats not bein ignorant its puttin an ignorant person in his place, unless your brazilian too then this conversation is pointless…. and im guessin that 3rd grade comment was to your brazilian buddy, i no hates brazil have real champion lol

          • MuayThaiFood

            I’m not Brazilian, I was referring to your lack of skill in putting words together and forming sentences. Seriously, that’s kind of embarrassing having someone such as yourself saying how great this country is. Why don’t you just be quiet, you’re making the rest of us look bad too.

        • MuayThaiFood

          You can’t even form sentences….stfu.

      • Guest

        U are such stupido !! Email me 4 stupid UFC , go get a life

      • Elle Murad

        Dude – you got WAY too much time on your hands. Thanks for the laughs!

        • Pat Garret

          DUDE, YOU REALLY PUT A FIRE UNDER HIS FEET….

  • brad king

    Cyborg will stop Rousey cold! She is a wrecking machine

  • horace

    Cyborg is not wanted in the UFC ever. Why can’t he just understand he is not needed ever. Go fight the men at 145lbs.

    • OneDarkNight

      ^ Whore Ass is just jealous that Cyborg can ass whoop him

      • 700Level

        Says a Guyborg fanboy who doesn’t want to admit his gay crush is a cheater who ran from the UFC as soon as they forced him to do drug testing.

  • horace

    cyborg will never fight in the UFC ever. Dana will let the Tito ruined Cyborg wither for years delaying this opportunity and cyborg’signorance and comments close the door harder. How dumb is this guy?

  • gnodeb

    If Cyborg can make 135, that would be close fight. But let be honest… if Cyborg smash Ronda, that would be the end of WMMA in UFC.

    • horace

      yep it would be over

  • Ron Wheeler

    If Cyborg can make safely without losing all stamina and power, should be a good fight.

  • horace

    This is America and Cyborg and her drug induced stench is not welcome. Dana basically has said that clearly. can’t speak English then get the hellout of the USA

  • M Bones

    Actually the USA is the hotbed of doping in all sports. Face it, Marion Jones, A-Rod, Lance Armstrong, Gatlin, Barry Bonds, all the worst ever and boldest drug cheats are Americans. If only the education system were as undiluted as the Nandrolone…

  • M Bones

    Are you native American? Why all the America this and America that rhetoric? You’re likely descended from immigrants like 99% of Americans. You’re ancestors came to America to be free from persecution. By the way its a women’s 135 pound division, dont know how well you grasp the English language there Horace, or the fact that there soon will be other weight classes introduced. Quite possibly even a 145 pound division where Cyborg could fight all comers. A lot of fighters dope, its more about getting better rules in place to control it than worrying that any one particular athlete is doing it. Its quite likely that other female mma athletes will be currently, using or have used PEDs. Theres really no way to tell without more testing, blood testing, hair testing and regularly conducted testing at random intervals and times of the day.

  • Robby Clark

    That’s not accurate at all. There’s plenty of steroids going around in Brazil, Holland, Germany, Russia.. I could go on, but that’s a wildly inaccurate statement.

    Lance tested positive, but so did the other top 20 guys competing against him from all over the world. He still beat them. While you touch on Barry Bonds and A-Rod, how about Sammy Sosa? Or is he now American as well since he played in the States. America also has the largest amount of worldly known athletes and tests more than anywhere in the world as well, so there just might be some other factors involved.

    Oh, I’m Canadian.
