Dana White refrained from going on a long tirade about Cris Cyborg, obviously tiring on the subject, saying “either you wanna come (into the UFC) and try to be the champ or you don’t.”

    Does anyone honestly think she will come in after watching Sonnen get caught and having his career ended in a flash? She should be banned from all competitive combat sports. Period.

    • uncle

      So should Overeem, Barnet,Belfort the list
      goes on

      • James Mckaskle

        we should have a league for cheaters, because cheating is good!

    • TRT-rex

      She passed like 2 ransoms test in the past year, relax bro. Everyone holds her to a double standard cause she is a woman that use roids. Now she is a man according to everyone, which is stupid. And for Danna saying she doesn’t want to be champ? She still is the champ IMO. He just needs to sign her or just stop talking about her all together cause it’s pretty sad to hear everyone defame her over stuff men fighter do all the time.

      • Ian Price

        I agree. Too much smack talk. There’s not even TRT anymore, and that combined with random testing… I don’t see it as a problem. The only special treatment cyborg should get is if she’s caught again, the penalties should be more severe due to her history. Other than that, she should be good to go.

      • Lawdog1521

        I don’t know if it’s a double standard or too many boys having crushes on Rousey. Cyborg, as stated, has passed her random test and is no different than the literally dozens of fighters currently fighting in the UFC with a past history.

        I have once to hear Rousey legitimately call out Cyborg yet she’ll run off at the mouth about fighters like Carino who hasn’t fought in two years.

        • TheCerealKiller

          If you meant Carano, she hasn’t fought in five years.

        • TRT-rex

          I think you mean Carano hasn’t released movie in 2 years. Lol

      • James Mckaskle

        Your opinion doesn’t mean much since Wanderlei doesn’t fight in the UFC and RR has the belt.

  • uncle

    Bring Cyborg in all of Ronda’s opponents are walking corpse.

    I want to see her pushed with a challenge to know if she could
    do more then judo

    • Ian Price

      If she plows through Zingano, yeah I agree. There’s no one else really.

      • uncle

        Zingano needs to be tenacious right
        when the bell rings. a lot of Ronda’s
        opponents are slow starters and they
        pay for it .because Ronda is gung ho
        from the start.

        • TRT-rex

          Slow starters? I’m not sure if you saw her last fight. Davis came swinging. And that is what judo fighters want. The more aggressive her opponents are makes getting her clinch easier. Which equals a toss to the head. Learn your martial arts. Judo means “the gentle way” for a reason.

          • uncle

            She needs a new dance partner
            like Cyborg. she more then likely
            be a KO if she try to clinch with Cyborg. that is 1 thing I noticed
            Ronda gets blasted a lot in some
            of her fights, so what does she do? when that judo throw is not there and forced to strike with Cyborg

          • TRT-rex

            Man… It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out. She takes those shots to get the clinch genius. Have you ever seen her hurt or rocked from those “blastings” you say she has taken? Cyborg does have a chance, I think a good chance. But in the clinch she will get thrown 100% of the time. Ronda stats speak for them self. The real question is what does cyborg do if she can’t ko Ronda? Will she lose her arm? Get tossed on her head? Or just ko’d cause Ronda can do that to.

          • uncle

            She take shots from a good
            striker she may not recover to get the clinch case and point, and you can stop assuming your the only 1 who knows MMA. I know what she is trying to do Only
            kids think they know everything, so after summer I wish you good luck in 6th grade.

          • TRT-rex

            Of course. If anyone takes a good shot from a good striker they may not recover. That’s sticks and stones. And if you noticed I agree that cyborg has a chance. A good one. But the clinch isn’t the answer. She needs to keep distance and pick her apart. Just watch all Ronda’s fights and see what happens when her opponent gets close to her. It honestly has nothing to do with knowledge, just actually watching and paying attention. By the way, I’m going to 7th grade. Your assessment on the clinch is the only thing I disagree with

          • uncle

            It’s all good my dude

          • TRT- rex

            Same to you. That was a good, nice clean debate.

          • James Mckaskle

            Davis had a stupid smile on her face, no intensity. Stupid IMO.

  • Nick

    at this rate.. they should start pumping all of rondas opponents full of juice to give them a fighting chance. if she walks through everyone every fight.. it will kill he womens division in the ufc.. and it will go bye bye.

    • the_blazerman

      Cyborg is already full of juice.

      • Ian Price

        Come on, it’s just apple juice these days!! ;-)

    • bam bam bignotslow

      Agreed. The average fighter has 2 to 3 fights a year at best. Rhonda seems to be fighting every few months. Dana’s forever telling her to get on a main event every time someone pulls out.
      In my opinion this is unfair as there are too many fighters on the roster ready to go that could do with the money

  • TheCerealKiller

    And new, UFC womens bantam weight champion……

    • taylor2008

      With steriods….yes. Without….no.

      • TheCerealKiller

        We’ll see.

  • MikeMcK83

    There is a difference between some men doing PED.s and some women. In general, there’s more for a women to gain by using PED’s which in turn can give them a greater advantage “pound for pound.”
    On another note, who cares. Its girl fighting. The fact that it takes up room on the fight cards is bad enough, but now it takes up space on Fighting news sites too. Its like an extra slap in the face. ;)

  • Ranch Guy

    Let Cyborg fight Holly Holm. Cyborg needs a fight an Holm need to face a real fighter.

  • dandogood

    Cyborg off steroids and injections is just another guy.

  • dandogood

    Cyborg should just man up and should beat the hell out of Meisha big nose tate first.

    • taylor2008

      Man up? Pun or no pun intended for Cyborg?

  • brad king

    Hey everyone knows she Cyborg is the legitimate woman’s champion’
    D White now just gotta get Rhonda a shot at the title.
    No matter how many girls RR beats she will never get the respect until she faces some quality opposition.

    • dandogood

      cyborg got dropped 5 times in a recent fight. without drugs he is just another transvestite.

  • dandogood

    Chris Cyborg puts his jockstrap on one leg at a time just like any other guy does..

  • dandogood

    Cyborg got jewels on him.
