Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey was a guest on this week's edition of "The MMA Report with John Pollock" on TSN Radio in Canada. Rousey responded to comments made earlier in the week by Cris 'Cyborg' Santos about a potential fight with Santos stating she couldn't make 135-pounds. Here is Rousey's response:

"If she wants to fight me than she is going to have to find a way to come down to 135. We'll see how she does in a fair fight for once in her life. She has a history of coming in over weight to fights and I wouldn't doubt that if we agreed to a catchweight of 140, she’d show up at 145 anyway and be like 'ah whatever, fight or not', she’s done this many times before. I don't owe her anything, she's completely defamed and anything she’s ever done is nothing because she is a big old cheater and has been doping her whole life and I think part of the reason why people like Dana think there is a lack of depth in all these divisions is because this girl is doping and making everyone look like they aren't in her league and I think the reason why people look at women's MMA like that was because of people like her. She is nothing but a detriment and the only positive she could play is an Ivan Drago bad guy that gets beat to hell by a Rocky. So no, she can fight me down at 135 because I have a whole line of people that want to fight me already and I don’t owe her anything, I don't need to come up and it’s just like why would I want to come up to her weight? She’s the one, stop doping, lose the weight or she can either do the drugs and fight me at 135 and have the drugs be just as much a detriment as a help to her during the weight cut or she can cut out the doping and make the weight easily. As long as she makes 135 I don't care if she's injecting horse semen into her eye balls but that’s the only way I think it would be a fair fight and she’s never had a fair fight in her life and I see how the prospect of that would scare the hell out of her and why she would insist at fighting heavier."
Rousey is amazing. If she can stay focused with all this celebrity status she can be the one to make chick MMA important

That being said: Chick MMA will never be important.

Cyborg says:

"I get many questions about Ronda Rousey, and I would like to set the record straight for the last time, as I do not consider her much personally, much less as a fighter. She claims she is the champion and openly challenges me to fight at 135 pounds, which I find laughable. She competed in the Beijing Olympics at 154 pounds and fought at 145 pounds in MMA until she learned she would have to fight me and then dropped to 135 pounds.

"There really is not a safe way for me to cut to 135 pounds – not without hurting myself physically. I am less than eight percent body fat at 145 pounds, and my cardiologist and physician have advised me that to make such a drastic reduction in weight could have permanent effects on my long-term health. I will not endanger my health to satisfy the rantings of a spoiled little girl who has yet to prove that she can truly compete at my level at a weight she has not only fought at before but has been awarded an Olympic medal."

Maybe they'll keep talking this up until they get on a UFC card.
