MMA NEWS: Ronda Rousey Hints That Female Champ Cyborg Is On Performance Enhancers

December 9, 2011 9:59 am by George Matthews

“Yeah, well I think it would be easy for her to make 135lbs if she stopped doing certain things, and that’s her decision.”

In an interview with Dave Meltzer, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey talks about Cris Cyborg’s move to 135lbs, and why she believes the current women’s featherweight champion could easily make the cut.

With one of the most intimidating frames a woman can carry, Cyborg not only looks like a force of nature but she has also proven such. Having beaten every opponent put in front of her since entering the world stage for the EliteXC banner, the Brazilian champion has proven she is large and in charge. However, sources close to the situation are making claims that the best female fighter on the planet is receiving pressure from her employer to drop down a weight class due to the depth of her division.

This is where Rousey comes in. Making claim, in a round about way that Cyborg must first stop doing whatever it is she is doing if she hopes to make the additional 10 pound drop. For her part, Cyborg admits to walking around on a normal day-to-day basis in the 160 pound ballpark.

Would she lose her edge at 135 pounds and is Rousey picking a fight with the wrong female by dropping hints that she thinks she is on performance enhancers?
