Cyborg Wants ZUFFA Release On The Grounds That Her Division No Longer Exists | MMA NEWS

“Guys, I’m afraid that fight is not happening. My division no longer exists. I’m waiting to be released from the UFC.”

Taking to twitter, former Strikeforce champion Cris “Cyborg” Santos stated that she doesn’t believe the Rousey fight will happen and would instead like to seek her release from Strikeforce so that she can pursue fights in her natural weight class of 145 pounds. For months Strikeforce officials have hinted at having the Brazilian make the 135 pound class after her suspension is up in December, however it appears as if the female standout would rather pack her things and find another fighting home!

    Send Him To Bellator!

  2. DELA says:

    Send him to Bellator. Can’t wait to hear what Rousey has to say about this…. Not!

  3. Sr.stinson says:

    I’m not really sure why but she doesn’t seem that ugly in that pic.

  4. Soul Snatcha says:

    Ducking beyond all control, her division is still active, there was a womans featherweight fight on Saturdays card. Dont know what shes talkin bout.

    • Scotty says:

      They will be getting rid of the FW womens division which they have already announced awhile ago, reason they have been asking Cyborg to drop to 135.. All the other fighters will either drop to 135 as we have been seeing and the others will be dropped.. Also how is Cyborg ducking? Ronda Rousey is the won who said she was going to drop to 135 to win that title then come up to 145 and fight Cyborg to take her title! Now Rousey is saying Cyborg needs to drop to 135.. So who is going back on her word now?

      • Victor Zsasz says:

        actually, cyborg is LEAVING and not dropping weight like everyone else, clearly an attempt at sympathy! meaning, shes afraid and wants nothing to do with it! rousey has cyborb in any weight class, but the fact remains, rather than cut weight, shes leaving, thats ducking 😉

        • Null says:

          It has more to do with she can’t make 135 because she was to big.

          Ronda said she would come up to fight her, now she won’t even meet her at a catch weight of 140, so who’s ducking who? If Ronda signed a catch weight fight of 140, it wouldn’t be an issue, but she won’t cuz she is scared.

          The only reason Ronda has any fans is because she’s cute, it’s messed up.

        • lolziez says:

          she’d be even hot if it wasnt for her mouth always gettin in the way

        • Buka says:

          It’s not because she can’t make the weight it’s because if the roids, she is not that big of a woman, frame wise. Muscle weighs more than fat, if she was a normal in shape woman she should have no problem making 135 or even less. She is 5’8 and 27 years old, 135 should be easy if she is clean, shit, there are men that can make 135 and stand 5’9 plus.

        • LOL@Null says:

          Are you serious? She’s the first American Woman to win an Olympic Medal.. Her Mom was the first American, period, to win a World Judo Championship.. She’s had 6 pro fights and won them ALL in the first round by Arm Bar. She’s a beast. Not to mention she’s a CA native born and raised in Venice.

          How can you honestly say that the only reason she has fans is because she’s cute? Sure, she’s cute. She’s actually pretty damn hot. But you have to be almost retarded to say what you said. I can understand if you’re just not knowledgeable, but it’s messed up to think she only has fans because she’s cute lol. She’s a beast.

        • Scotty says:

          Her weight class is 145 and she barely makes that.. Her dropping to 135 either will drain herself completely to where it actually can harm her or she wont be able to make it which she miss weight, give up money and not be a title fight.. Lose, lose situation it think.. But i would like to see her try to get herself to a weight where she can make 135 and not bother her during fight time rather than leave strikeforce.. But if your body isnt going to respond then what are u going to do? Wait around hoping they can make a fight for 145? Or get dropped from the Organization when they get rid of division.. Have to make a career decision, remember they have to get paid to make a living. She is already taking a huge fall with this year suspension, does she really more of one?

          Also why did Ronda say she was going to go up to 145 to fight Cyborg right before Cyborgs suspension, now the time is nearing for Cyborg to return she is saying Cyborg to come to 135? Cant call someone out, then say “come down to my weight class” when that person isnt in that weight class.. Everyone talking shit on GSP for saying A.Silva to come down to 170, this is the samething.. Im just looking at in that perspective but just hope they fight!

        • ASDF says:

          Do you have a problem with timelines of events, what Brian said below. She said after the fight, now she’s the champion, that Cyborg needs to come/go to her.

      • Brian says:

        Yeah, that was when Cyroid was a “champion” and before the steroid debacle. She should be able to make 135 easily with the muscle weight she’ll drop, if she’s off the stano. I have no doubt that after seeing Rousey’s victory in person, that also explains why she left the arena so quickly.

    • stevo the great says:

      Yep the Yamanaka Vs. Germaine bout was at Womens Featherweight 145lbs. division.

      This is CLEARLY Cyborg trying to duck Rousey. She saw how fast she beat Sarah that night in San Diego, right next door to the gym Cyborg Trains/works at. She started realizing how much she likes her arms and is now looking for cheap ways out…..cause she is SCARED!

      But we all know the division exists and is active….nice try Cy-roid.

          Is this for real? I mean I hope it is because there’s a lot of morons on every forum no just this one.

        • bjpenndotcom says:

          yes. please help spread the word. this is no longer the wild wild west.

        • stevo the great says:

          Nothing I said violated the rules…..”fighter bashing” can be considered someone just saying they suck. Let’s be real….the internet is to voice your opinion. An MMA news forum should have postings of peoples opinions or facts and should not be subject to censorship unless it is offending racially or sexually. I agree with the rules except the fighter bashing….you guys have done your fair share of bashing Nick Diaz every chance you get. But that is my opinion. Just like it would be your opinion to interpret if someone is “bashing”. But EVERYONE bashes Brock Lesnar…….people are gonna diss roiders….like Sherk….and Cyborg. You can’t make rules to an MMA community and tell them not to bash! If a fighter is a douche….expect people to call them on it. Don’t turn this into a censored site….we are all adults here, let’s not act like we need to be treated like children.

        • bjpenndotcom says:

          never said you were in violation… over time you will see how loosely we enforce the rule “fighter bashing”..

          think of it this way.. there’s profanity and there’s EXTREME porfanity. there’s fighter bashing and there’s EXTREME fighter bashing. and then there’s Vulgar Sexual racial comments that have no place on any forum…

          in no way are we tryin to censor your comments.. all we are trying to do is tone down on the EXTREME hatred EXTREME profanity and EXTREME fighter bashing.

        • Leo says:

          Rules are made as the guidelines for the intelligent and the blind obedience of the idiot.

          The rules seem logical as some people can’t differentiate between what is acceptable “banter” or humour and what is “extreme” or anti-social communication.

          I guess if you’re intelligent enough to know the difference carry on commenting without worry as you already possess the common sense to know what is or isn’t offensive.

          If you’re not… well either blindly follow the rules or find a new outlet for the comments you have that nobody wants to hear.

          Quite simple really!

        • 757 says:

          Thank you and I apologize for my part and for any offenses that I may have caused. I should have conducted myself with more class and chose to let things ride when I did not. For this I apologize. I will be enjoying a more positive and constructive site indeed. The sport deserves that.

          Thank you

        • JiuJitsuRules/BJJWhiz says:

          AWWWW C’mon those are the only reasons i come to this site.

        • bjpenndotcom says:

          Extreme profanity

        • ballsackface says:

          Fighter Bashing will not be tolerated

          this is an mma forum where people have their favourites.

          most people come here to have a good bit of banter and a war of words.

          what you are about to enable is a feature that will kill traffic to your site and believe me it will.
          the only thing this site has going for it is the banter, war of words and trolling.
          if you prevent this then everyone will migrate to a website that has better news as you are too slow, ill advised, report WWE and basically have writers that dont know what they are talking about or manipulate a heading just to get something read.

          good luck

        • bjpenndotcom says:

          notice the word EXTREME before every rule.
          notice how bashing and profanity will continue and still be allowed..
          but a line has to be drawn somewhere to weed out the phsycos don’t you think?

          but what we really need you to understand is the meaning of the word EXTREME!

          we all know what EXTREME is don’t we? I’m sure we’ve all ran into some pretty interesting characters in these forums you speak of. this one included.

          just trying to get rid of some of the phsycos

        • Jake from State Farm says:

          Pretty much what the moderator is saying is Extreme is: every other word you type can’t be profanity, and every other sentence you are bashing a fighter.

        • bjpenndotcom says:

          thx Jake. we do realize that profanity and bashing on a MMA forum go hand in hand. that’s why the word EXTREME was added before every rule…

        • ASDF says:

          You didn’t add extreme on the last rule. I think you forgot, just letting you know.

  5. stevo the great says:

    Must be the English barrier Cyborg has but….this is fact, that this bout

    Women’s Featherweight bout: Japan Hiroko Yamanaka vs. Netherlands Germaine de Randamie
    de Randamie defeated Yamanaka via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).


  6. jbeamazing says:

    shes acting like a girl but nobody cares

  7. Victor Zsasz says:

    Cyborg is SCAAAAAAAAAAAAAREd of rousey! nuff said!

  8. B.Wincott says:

    I think “he” should pack his bags and go. No one in their right mind ever though of “it” as a clean fighter. If “he” wants to cry about not having a weight class, so be it. Cy-Bitch had “his” chance at stardom when “he” beat Gina. “He” wanted to cheat and dope, and after paying the price for it, now wants to cry-foul and gain sympathy as a victim. Guess what “dude”, no one cares! We as fans don’t want cheaters in the sport we love so much. Be gone Cy-Bitch, and good riddings!

  9. I see her point, can’t take PED’s and cut to 135

  10. Kwazzi Motoe says:

    sounds like someone doesnt want to get arm barred

  11. matt j says:

    i think shes trying to avoid another drug screening!

  12. Me says:

    If they can’t make this fight work I reckon Miesha should try and jump back in action as soon as possible, the quicker she gets another victory the chances of the rematch will happen will be larger!

  13. She is sooooooo ducking Ronda!

  14. Xaninho says:

    Apparently she wants to fight Rousey under the unified parking lot brawlers rules…

  15. Jake says:

    So basically she wants to go to Invicta

  16. Alfadog1 says:

    No one wants to fuck with rousey the woman’s a killer I wouldn’t even wanna have sex with her because she’d probably make me pregnant

  17. Coots says:

    Hahaha @ xanahanu

  18. BLabla BLa says:

    Roids shmoids. Cyborg would still kick her butt. Roids don’t give you unlimited magical powers. Rousey is ducking her for not moving up in weight. If she wants Cyborg, go up. She started it.

  19. A.James says:

    Cyborg is the most dominant female in the sport and has sent many females packing. Then she pissed hot and sent herself packing. If she wants to leave I say good riddance. The women’s division is hurting and she could’ve ended it all.

  20. Cameron says:

    There needs to be 2 divisions for women fighters. Women, and men with vaginas.
