UFC President Dana White is leaving Cristiane Santos no excuses about fighting in the UFC at 135 pounds. “Cyborg” has claimed she can not make bantamweight limit to fight Ronda Rousey, but White has now said the UFC would be willing to help the hard-hitting Brazilian slim down in a healthy way.
According to the outspoken executive, the UFC is willing to hire trainer/author Mike Dolce to come in and manage her diet/cut. White has also reiterated the ultimatum that if she wants to fight in the UFC it will have to be in the bantamweight division.
White told Tatame:
“She can get to this weight. We have an expert who can help you lose weight in a healthy way. We have Mike Dolce, who has wrestlers lose weight and still feel good and it’s all about your diet. He is 100 percent ready to work with her and will not cost anything to Cris… Cyborg needs to get on the boat. If she wants to fight in the UFC, she’ll have to fight this category of 135 pounds. The stupidest thing about it is that she has Tito Ortiz as his manager.”
