Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino may have a featherweight championship defense against Faith Van Duin coming up at Invicta FC 13, but she still has her sights set on UFC’s Ronda Rousey.
“Cyborg” recently wrote a blog on her Facebook breaking down her current view on the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion. After hearing what “Rousey” had to say about her while on the “Howard Stern Show”, “Cyborg” fired back at Rousey. Here are the following excerpts from her rant:
When Ronda first started using my name in interviews to build hers during our Strikeforce days it use to make me mad, however it has gotten to the point that I now feel sorry for her.
You can tell she isn’t happy with life. She is world champion in the UFC and has the same grumpy face no matter what picture you see of her.
In almost every interview she gives she’s talking bad about people wether it is me, Meisha Tate, the Ring Card Girls or an Ex Boyfriend and the only time she ever says anything good about someone is when she is talking about herself…lol…I’m sure even she doesn’t really believe she’s got the best ass in MMA.
She has struggled to find an identity away from Judo and fighting and has used her money and popularity to build an entourage. How many of those horsewoman were around before her career took off? would they still be helping her if she wasn’t paying for their housing and helping their careers? Only she knows that answer, but there has to be a reason why a World Class Athlete would allow themselves to become victim of substance abuse, wether that is pain pills or other mind altering drugs. I think a lot of her attitude is from insecurities that she has outside of the Octagon away from fighting.
If she needs to continue bringing up my name in Interviews and constantly try to put me down for my looks, or my past mistakes, it only shows me that she still isn’t confident in herself.
There is a reason why she is saying she will only fight me at 135lbs, despite telling anyone who will listen that she would beat Cain Velasquez, fight Laila Ali, or whatever other nonsense she will come up with in her next interview, and that’s because when she loses to me she will lose her whole identity, when the cameras aren’t around and everyone has gone home, I think she’s just a really lonely-unhappy soul, and that’s a sad way to live your life.
If the fight finally does happen, I’m not coming for the belt, it is her spirit I’m going to break, for all the mean things she has said about me. She made it personal and that isn’t something an opponent wants to do against me.
