IV Ban Might Destroy Potential Cyborg Vs. Rousey Fight

July 8, 2015 8:24 am by BJPENN.COM News


Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino just wants to be healthy. If that gets in the way of her making 135 lbs. in order to potentially fight UFC champion Ronda Rousey, then so be it.

The Invicta FC featherweight champion spoke to the media on Tuesday and said that the new USADA IV ban could be a ‘problem’ for her and that the rule in general is bad for the sport.

Here’s what she had to say about making bantamweight:

“I want to be healthy. I know fighting and [being] famous, [the] belt, it’s for now. At the end of the day, you’re getting older, I don’t want to be sick. I want to have kids.”

“I think it would be perfect at 140. I’ll try my best [to make 135]. I’ll try 100 percent, I’ll try for all my fans to make this fight happen and I know I can sleep [at night] and say I did my 100 percent to make this fight happen.”
