Hendricks has all the right in the world to whine. Dude BEAT GSP and didn't get credit for it. He should be defending his title at 171, not fighting for one...


IF Cyborg is dropping to 135, Dana will make that fight sooner than later.

He's saying she has to cut to 135 a few times and she won't jump in front of other 135ers already in UFC. So probably at least 2 fights outside of UFC at 135 then a few in UFC before Rousey. 

post #1565 of 34106
I doubt she can make 135 and be close to feeling comfortable.
post #1566 of 34106
Add in the fact that she lost her intrepid manager in Tito Ortiz and she could be in trouble...

I understand that some gave that fight to hendricks but what I can't take is hendricks giving all those excuses. If herb dean will do it again I hope one of them, hendricks or lawler, will put that ref to sleep hahaha.

If cyborg can make it to 135, give a convincing/dominant win in the ufc or another org, dana can make rousey vs cyborg as main/co-main on the last event of the year. Ufc won't need extra efforts to sell that fight.
post #1569 of 34106

every time someone one asks a question for dana, dude cringes and then, exhales that he doesn't have to blow up on a reporter. 

post #1570 of 34106
rousey said she would have a chance against Cain Velasquez. In her delusional mind Barao would be an easy fight.

cyborg needs to lose some muscle but she'd probably prefer to suffer more for the weight cut. Don't understand why some bulky fighters who struggle with weight cuts don't lose some of that bulk. Might even help with their endurance.

I'm almost certain Cyborg would dominate RR. I've seen her in MMA and kickboxing, she legit scares me. I feel like she could compete with some men :rollin

 

We've all seen RR get in stand up battles and she leaves herself open. Give her credit, she has a decent to solid chin, but Cyborg has the size and power to reign as champ. She's making it seem like that weight cut is impossible though. I also have my doubts that Dana will try to get her, considering that RR is such a cash cow.

post #1572 of 34106

 I dont think Cyborg would last long with Ronda on the ground. She'd have to KO her before Ronda could clinch. If she clinches it's a wrap Cyborg will go flying and then submit.

post #1573 of 34106

She's not only his cash cow, but something more seems to be going on between them.

I thought I saw a story before that cyborg had a fight against a guy in a vale tudo org a few years ago in Brasil and actually beat him.

Cyborg has the size and strength to stay off the mat for periods of time though. Apparently Cyborg cut ties with Tito Ortiz so I wonder what her status is now

post #1575 of 34106

Gina had Cyborg mounted in their fight and was raining down punches. If that was Ronda it's another victory by armbar easily. The gap in grappling level between Ronda and the world women's MMA is so big it's not funny. Cyborg's only chance is to swing those wild chute boxe haymakers and hope one lands.

Ehh, Cyborg's BJJ is actually pretty exceptional and that fight was a long time ago. I would wager that Vegas would have Cyborg as the favorite.

 

I guess Cyborg is going to fight for the 135 title in Invicta and then wants a fight with RR in December. I'm down. Dana make it happen.

I hope this rousey vs cyborg talk is not just another 'superfight that really won't happen'. Dana always talks about it but not one has happened.
post #1578 of 34106

Dana has tried though. GSP just didn't want to move up to fight Silva. Silva lost to Weidman but it seemed like he was down to fight Jones if he had beaten Weidman.

 

Aldo and Pettis was set (if you even want to consider that a superfight)

 

I wouldn't really consider Cyborg and RR in the same category as what you're referring to, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Cyborg in the UFC by the end of the year if she proved she could fight at 135

post #1579 of 34106
Well, aldo vs pettis is the closest we can get to a 'superfight'. One with the highest possibility of happening this year. But I think pettis still isn't cleared to fight(?).

Rousey vs cyborg clearly isn't on the same level as gsp vs silva or silva vs jones. But given the depth of women's mma that, in my opinion, is one of the 'superfights' we can get in terms of battle of skills, ppv draws, and that is what the fans want.

Besides, have you heard some from the ufc, especially joe rogan, refer to rousey as best mma fighter at the present? Maybe not said exactly like that but something that sounds like that. They are really building up ronda. If you won't be surprised that cyborg will be in the ufc by the end of the year, I will not be surprised if the ufc will sell rousey vs cyborg like one of those superfights that we didn't see.

Aldo and Pettis were set to fight a while back at featherweight but Pettis injured his knee

 

UFC definitely hypes RR way too much but I don't blame them for trying to sell their product.

 

Also, Dana isn't really selling folks on RR v Cyborg. It's not like he's campaigning for it, so if it doesn't happen it's not like he's giving people false hopes. He was definitely campaigning for GSP v Silva and Silva v Jones. GSP just didn't want to ever move up and Silva got beat twice by Weidman.

post #1581 of 34106
Not yet hahaha. It's too early to sell that now because nobody knows if cyborg can really make it to 135. But I get what you're saying.

Meh. We won't see ronda fight for a while so I hope another legitimate contender will come. Mcmann should challenge her again in the future, no herb dean in that fight I hope.
post #1582 of 34106

Agree that UFC is hyping up Rousey way too much but interested to see if the hype dies down a little. Early numbers are saying it was pretty average in gate and attendance figures. If RR isn't the UFC's biggest draw like Dana was saying, I wonder how much longer he continues to pour money into marketing her if they're not getting the results they want.

post #1583 of 34106
They are building a name to attract an audience to something they otherwise wouldn't care for. Who cared about women's MMA before her? They do it in boxing all the time.

Either way... Either Dana's left arm is long as **** or this is a photoshop.  I'm going with the latter.
