Cyborg to Rousey “This Fight Has To Happen”

After a very quick finish in her UFC Bantamweight Title Defense in UFC 190 against Bethe Correia, Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey is set to face Miesha Tate for a third time, giving Miesha Tate another chance for UFC gold.

Cris “Cyborg” Justino, Invicta FC’s Featherweight Champion has been talking a lot how she and Rousey should do the fight. The only reason this fight has not happened yet is because “Cyborg” has not made weight yet as she fights in the 145 pound category while Rousey is fights at 135 pounds. “Cyborg” has been egging both the UFC and Rousey to meet halfway for a catchweight bout, but Dana White, the UFC’s president has other things in mind by saying that Ronda Rousey is a champion and fights at 135, and if Cyborg wants to fight, she has to come down (as Cyborg would be the challenger gunning for her shot at the UFC gold).

The UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion has said that Cyborg could easily have the fight happen if she would just lose the steroids and cut weight for 135 pounds. Cyborg is very much annoyed at this statement by Rousey saying that her doping incident happened in 2011 and she has passed all the exams that take place. She stated that she has already passed six examinations and that Rousey should stop accusing her of something that she cannot prove.

It is indeed in the interest of the fans to see Cyborg fight Rousey, but whose side is willing to give way, that is something we all have to watch out for.
