Well, her coach, Edmond Tarverdyan, recently talked to Submission Radio and explained his stance on the subject, discussing why he doesn’t want Rousey to take a fight with Cyborg at featherweight, or a catchweight.
“I honestly don’t understand what she’s even talking about. She needs to make the weight to fight. I don’t understand catchweights, I don’t like catchweights. I don’t understand what she’s talking about catchweights, I don’t even like it in boxing. There is a weight division and everybody should follow the weight divisions and fight at that weight for the title to be one the line, and Ronda is a champion at 135 right now. She has done things in her past to put fighter’s life in danger. When we’re training and we’re in the gym, we try and make everything so intelligent and smart and safe so we could be right, we could be respectful to the sport.”
“Those girls did not done what Cyborg has done, those girls did not cheat. Cyborg has cheated. People have to understand that. And now, no fucking exceptions. I don’t want exceptions, I want it at 135.”
