Cyborg Still Wants to Fight Ronda Rousey – Says The Title Doesn’t Matter
Posted by Larry Csonka on 09.19.2013
- Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino recently spoke about her desire to fight Ronda Rousey. Here are the highlights…
On Her Beef With Rousey Not Being Personal: "I don't have anything personal against her. She talks stuff about me, and I think all the time she's talking about me. I don't know if she loves me, but I don't have nothing personal. I think everything is professional."
On Her Difficulty Cutting Weight:"I'm very heavy and my bones are heavy and I try to make 135, but I think it's very difficult for me," Justino said. "I think 145 is very hard. Always when I make 145 I say, 'Why?' It's very difficult for me to make 145 and I said, 'If Ronda wants to fight me she can make 140 and go up and I'll go down five pounds."
On Not Wanting to Fight For The Belt: "I don't care about the belt in the UFC, I care about the fight," Justino said. "I think everybody wants to see the fight. I'm the champion of Invicta now. I don't care. But I think the fans want to watch this fight, and I think it would be very exciting."
On The UFC "Protecting" Rousey: "I think the UFC tries to protect Ronda because the boss wants everything inside their event, Justino said. "If we're going to make this fight, why not 140? Everyone says, 'Oh Jon Jones vs. Anderson Silva and (Georges) St-Pierre vs. somebody else [at a catchweight]. I think we should make this fight at 140. I just want to go over there and win the fight then go back to my home at Invicta."
