Cris “Cyborg” Santos Advised by Doctors Not to Cut to 135


Fans, fighters and even Dana White may be disappointed with the news that is coming out of Cris “Cyborg” Santos camp this morning.

In a report on MMAWeekly it seems that doctors have advised the former Strikeforce Women’s Featherweight Champion not to attempt to cut down to 135lbs so she can face Ronda Rousey for what will be the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship.

Her cardiologist said it is not a safe move and she was also warned it could hinder future attempts at having children. Santos has been serving a suspension since December of last year because of a failed drug test given after defeating Hiroko Yamanaka on the Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal card in San Diego. Santos tested positive for Stanozol which is an anabolic steroid.

Rousey has not only become the biggest star of WMMA, but is fast becoming one of the more popular and sought after MMA fighters in the world. She has been nominated for numerous  awards by Fighters Only and also appeared on the cover of ESPN’s The Body Issue for 2012.

Rousey and Santos have exchanged a war of words and Rousey called out Cyborg after defeating Sarah Kaufman this past August. The win ran her professional record to 6-0 with all six wins coming via first round armbar. Cyborg has criticized Rousey for her unwillingness to fight her at 145lbs because Rousey in Judo at that weight.

Cyborg won the Strikeforce title by defeating former WMMA icon Gina Carano in the first round of their fight back in August of 2009. That bout marked the first time a major mixed martial arts show was headlined by a womens fight.

Last week rumors were running rampant that Rousey had signed a contract with the UFC and that Strikeforce would shut its doors after their January 12 event in Oklahoma, but Rousey has quickly squashed those rumors. Regardless it’s just a matter of time before we see her inside the Octagon, whether its against Cyborg or not remains to be seen.

      No doubt in my mind thats the same DIRTY doctor from Brazil that has been giving Cyborg all her (its) ROIDS for last 6-7 years and of course any doctor that knows someone that use to be a woman who has been on ROIDS this long cannot have a baby. I’m sure Cyborg has learned by now that the athletic commissions don’t test for HGH, EPO’s, Synthetic testosterone so as long as she stays away from the Stanzanol, DECA, and run of the mill easy detectable (CHEAP) steroids she will have no problem passing the weak ass state testing. Everyone that uses steroids always gets caught in Califronia liek she did because they use UCLA same place IOC or Oylmpic uses. Sherk, barnett and many otehrs had got away with JUICING for a lomg time until they fought in Calaifornia. I think if Cyborgs last fight was anywhere else she would have continued to get away with JUICING.

    BAH HA HA….I call bullshit.

  3. Cootsy says:

    I didn’t know men could have children! If he was so worried about having children, the doctor should of advised not to cycle steroids!

  4. Gracie Diet says:

    Two words DOLCE DIET

    • dogfart says:

      LOL dont buy into that shit.
      all the Dolce Diet is is a food guidline that most people with an ounce of sense would use.
      most fighters do not know much about correct diet but natural bodybuilders (non professional non steroid)do and hes basically copied that and put his name to it.

      its nothing special at all

  5. Xaninho says:

    She’s probably infertile already after all those steroids. And she made 145 on roids, so she can make 135 clean. This doc is crooked.

    • pobody's nerfect says:

      Haha, I was thinking of the same thing. Why the hell would fertility be part of the argument if she’s taken all those steroids? If anything, those steroids transformed her ovaries into testicles.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      What a joke you don’t have to be a doctor to know someone like Cyborg who has been JUICING for at least 7 years will never be able to have kids. ROIDS completely shrivel up a womans reproductive organs just like they shrivel up mens NUTS. Also no joking any woman that has ben doing STEROIDS as long as Cyborg has now has a gash the size of the friggen grand canyon so the baby would just fall out. She must have to wear a toddler diaper on that gash to keep from leaking all over people while she (IT) is grappling. All you have to do is look up and se what Cyborg looked like in 2006 and there will be no doubt in anyones mind how long that thing has been full on ROIDING.

      which is which? I think I’m going to go PUKE

  6. B-rad says:

    Yeah theres no way she man can make 135.. Her shlong weighs her down at least 25lbs

  7. joe MAC says:

    That dude aint getting pregnant

  8. M says:

    So,why can’t there be two women’s weight classes in the UFC, and don’t anyone dare say because there isn’t enough talent. Just the fact that this story exists is proof against it.

  9. Joe says:

    Wow! Without the steroids, she actually looks like an ugly woman instead of ugly man!

  10. Sosa says:

    there.. Isn’t .. Enough.. Talent..

  11. Jordan Tiger says:

    Someone needs to tell that Wanderlei looking ma fucker to cut off that Adams apple and that nut sac and maybe she will make the weight

  12. Clint says:

    140lb catch weight what’s the big deal

  13. Derpedy Derp says:

    Yeah don’t go to 135, it’s dangerous. S(he) might lose a limb. Ole andre the giant lookin ass bitch

  14. Could you Please Pass the TRT? says:

    the reason her cardiologist would say that is because of the steroid damage to her heart. She screw her self over by taking the roids.

  15. Chit Rodriguez says:

    Either cut the 10lbs or shut up!

  16. Tincat says:

    The ongoing horrible journalism and repeat articles continues on here at

    BJ is one of my inspirations, but this site has little if nothing to do with him anymore.

    Been nice chatting with fellow MMA fans here from time to time and sharing opinions, but I’m taking this site off my favorites so I won’t be back.

  17. Antonio Montana says:

    Goodbye! Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!

  18. mark says:

    What’s the doc got to say about roids then

  19. John says:

    Fertility.. Haha

  20. GRT 3000 says:

    take these shitty captchas OFF, or get them to work properly. I get an error code with almost every post!

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      I agree this site is messed up again. I signed on today and fiest thing I saw was my e-mail address posted for everyone to see under someone elses name. They need to delete the part where it says your e-mail won’t be published. Also i so friggen tired of that stupid a’ss CAPSTA’s B.S. At least half my posts don’t go thru and gets real annoying

  21. Fuck Dana says:

    She should surgically remove that 10lb clit.

  22. Bleppe says:

    Didn’t know there was a league for shemales. We learn something everyday I guess.

  23. aw8one says:

    Why cant he have kids if he cute weight im so confused!

  24. MMAniak says:

    I’m sure her doctors, trainers, friends n manager advised her not to use steroids either… Did she follow that advice? All of a sudden she’s taking advice? LOL
