“I wasn’t surprised because I knew how tough is for Gina to go down to 135, so (this fight) would need to be a catchweight. Gina Carano is a great athlete and I’d happy if she returns to MMA, doesn’t matter if it’s against Ronda. But she hasn’t fought since 2009. Her last fight was against me at Strikeforce, so I believe that Ronda thinks it’s such an easy fight that she would even move up. She knows that it would be different against me, especially because I already defeated Gina. They both are great athletes and have chances to win, but Gina Carano hasn’t fought for four years so she’s not in a good rhythm.”
In a recent interview with MMAFighting.com, Cris Cyborg, discussed the revelation that Ronda Rousey would move up in weight to fight Gina Carano, but not her.
Is Cyborg right or does Carano warrant a certain level of respect from Rousey?
