January 13, 2012 6:54 am by Pedro Carrasco

[box_light] “I don’t like to talk too much, I like to act instead. But now my hands are tied, I am suspended. This will be the first and last time I will talk. First of all, (Ronda Rousey) has been running away from me for a long time. We were going to fight, she talked a lot but left our division. And now she’s starting to talk because she knows that our fight will be difficult to happen. It’s easy to talk. She’s saying things that she shouldn’t be saying which hurts the sport. She’s directly affirming that I have used things before and disrespecting the Athletic Commission. In all of the fights I’ve had I passed the drug tests. What happened now was a mistake. I always respect my opponents, but with Ronda it will be different. She will have a year to train, that is, if she has the courage to throw hands with me. I will continue to train, I will compete in other sports such as jiu-jitsu and wrestling. It was a mistake, but it was good because I’ll continue to train and improve. She’ll have a year to get ready.”[/box_light]

In an interview with Brazilian media outlet,, former female featherweight champion, Cris “Cyborg” Santos reacts to the brash Ronda Rousey who has been publicly calling her a cheat.

Rousey, with only four-professional fights has put her name on the top of the list in women’s MMA. She has finished all of her opponents in under a minute and through her cleverly worded statements and interviews has already made herself one of the most famous women in the sport.

Is she bad for the sport? Can’t really say that she is.
