Tito Ortiz: Ronda Rousey Will Always Be No. 2 To Cyborg

“They pushed this fight of her and Ronda at 135 so much. The last time I saw Ronda call out Cris Cyborg, Ronda was actually at 145. So she cut down to 135 to stay avoid Cris. Now the ball is in their court – if they want the fight to happen, they will let the fight happen. If not I guess Ronda is the number two pound-for-pound woman always and Cris will be number one. Nobody is going to beat {Cyborg} ever. She is going to do an Anderson Silva and go undefeated for a long, long time. I think her head is getting to her. I watched a couple episodes and she seems like a little brat, likes she’s too good for everybody else. That’s the attitude you don’t want, especially as a coach. People see me on The Ultimate Fighter season three, season eleven, I never thought I was better than anybody else.”

“Is the popularity getting to Ronda’s head a little too much? She hasn’t had any huge fights, she hasn’t fought any huge names yet. I guess its one of those things that, in time, she needs to be tested. She’s being protected by the UFC and if she keeps being protected she will always be known as second-best. I haven’t seen any great stand-up skills. I have seen her closing the gap and taking a girl down and arm-barring her. I don’t think she even knows any moves other than an armbar.”

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Tito Ortiz, tells Fighters Only that Ronda Rousey will never be as great as Cris Cyborg.
