Joe Rogan Asks UFC to Open Women’s 145-Pound Division for Cris Cyborg

September 25, 2016

As Cris Cyborg steamrolled through another opponent at UFC Brasilia in her run as the most dominant female fighter on the planet, some may have forgotten that in order for her to fight in the UFC she has to make a miserable weight-cut to a 140-pound catchweight.

UFC commentator Joe Rogan, however, did NOT forget it all.

Openly opposed to difficult weight-cutting, Rogan took to Twitter following Cyborg’s defeat of Lina Lansberg on Saturday and directly tweeted at the UFC to open up a women’s featherweight division so that the natural 145-pound fighter doesn’t have to make a cut to a catchweight.

Cyborg has documented each of her weight-cuts leading up to her two UFC bouts. Each one has shown an incredible amount of struggle by the fighter attempting to shed weight, complete with tears that leave a reasonable fan uncomfortable in watching.

Whether or not the UFC will listen to people with the influence of Rogan, however, is very much up in the air.
