Female UFC champion Ronda Rousey has her first title defense on the horizon, but the fight on everyone’s mind is a bout with Cristiane Santos. The big problem with this match-up, however, is that “Cyborg” is still saying she can’t make the weight. Santos, who held Strikeforce gold at 145 pounds, has to drop to 135 to fight Rousey but has expressed concern with the move for medical reasons.

The situation prompted UFC President Dana White to go as far as to say they would hire a dietician to help her make the cut.  Unfortunately, even with the help Santos’ manager, UFC Hall Of Famer Tito Ortiz, isn’t too optimistic about the  fight happening.

Ortiz told MMAfighting:
“Will she make 135? As a person who has cut weight for 22 years: no, I don’t think it’s going to happen. It’s hard for women to cut that much weight. For a woman to be three-percent body fat, it’s not healthy. She talks about that she wants to have kids someday. Things like that can damage her [in that regard], and a lot of people don’t understand that. This is not a man we’re talking about. This is a woman we’re talking about. For Ronda to cut down the weight, yeah, she had a lot of extra weight on her.

“Cyborg doesn’t have much on her. She used to walk around at 170 and she lost some muscle mass just to try to see if she can get lower in this weight to do it. So far, so good. Like I said, she’s 160, 165. She bounces back around there. She says she stopped lifting weights the way she does and really just [been] focusing on her jiu-jitsu. She’s been training, putting in the time.”
