    Diana got McGregor carrying his money for him.
    I think its so corny how they trying to build him as money mayweather. this is the ufe now.. sad.

    Also daina white says cyborg must come down to the champions weight class in ronda rousey.. last i checked cyborg is the lineal champion of the world and rousey was in her weight class but moved down. Bring in the true womens champion and have a one time fight at 145lbs instead of draining cyborg at 135. If ronda is so great then why doesnt she move up to her original weight at 145 and fight the champ? If anyone has a great answer for that please id love to hear it.

      Because she only fights at 145 because she uses steroids. She got caught before, and is still the same size. If she quit using she would be smaller. She isn’t. She’s a cheater. Not a real champion.

        It’s amazing that so little people understand how hard it is to put on 10lbs of muscle and then take it back off.

          Stupid people know everything.

            Are you saying you know everything?

          Unless you’re Heavyweight. Damn those blokes got it easy.

          Assuming you’re fighting at your smallest possible weight class (which not all fighters do). Which is to say, your diet year round is spot on and you’re as lean as you’re going to get. Then yeah, it’s hell.

          Problem when you walk around at 10% body fat, is what you’re really doing, is losing water (maybe 5 – 6 % during weigh ins). Long term, cutting weight like that too often is just not healthy. Why most fighters go at it 2, maybe 3 times a year max.

          Rousey can make 145 or even something like 142, she walks around at over 150 and at weigh ins they are dehydrated. Fightersput on 10 to 15 pounds of weight after weigh ins.

          • TheCerealKiller

            Ronda walks around at 150 and Cyborg 172. Why would it be fair for Ronda to fight at her walking weight and Cyborg at a ripped 145? Cyborg needs to quit the roids and lose the 10lbs of muscle.
