women’s bantamweight champion stays firm and insists that she will only fight Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos at 135-lbs.

However ‘Cyborg’ said in her recent interviews that she is will only fight Rousey at a 140-lbs catchweight bout. Rousey says that ‘Cyborg’ gotten away with her long history of cheating and someone has to put their foot down.

Rousey explains in an interview:

“If you can make 145 [pounds] while you’re super juiced out, you can make 135 if you’re clean,”

“Cyborg has never had a fair fight. If you really look at it, she’s had fights where she came in and outweighed the other girl by 12 pounds and then they still fought. This girl has a long history of cheating and using drugs, and coming in overweight, and no one’s ever put their foot down ever about it.

“If we did a catchweight of 140, I 100-percent think she’d just come in overweight and be like, ‘Whatever, come fight me.’ Want to know why? Because she’s done it several times before. She has a track record of doing these things. This girl does things that are blatantly disrespectful to her opponents, over and over and over her whole career. Someone needs to put their foot down about it. So, yeah, I’m going to be the one that has to do it because I can.”

Rousey comes fresh from a 54-second submission victory against in their recent bout in San Diego, held only a month ago. She is set to fight the winner of the upcoming bantamweight bout between and , which will take place this November.
