The first womens fight everyone wanted to see in the UFC was a bout between UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey and Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos. Cyborg had been coming off a title bout where she had tested positive for steroids and UFC President Dana White said that if Cyborg wanted to make it happen she needed to drop down to 135 pounds. Cyborg signed a management deal with Tito Ortiz and even held a press conference talking about how she couldn’t make that weight, and the window to fight Rousey was all but closed. White is now saying that the chances of making it happen are slim to none and the day Cyborg signed with Ortiz was the day she committed professional suicide.
“Slim to none. She’s got a dummy running her business, who can’t run his own business. And apparently, he’s filling her full of shit. The last thing I would do, ever, is do anything with that knucklehead. I’m not talking about Cyborg.”
“She literally committed professional suicide. I mean, the dumbest guy in the sport – literally, literally the dumbest guy in the sport – who has destroyed his own career, she has him guiding her career. It makes no sense.”
