“Cyborg” Refuses To Meet Rousey at 135 lb.; Asks To Leave Strikeforce

You’d think MMA fans would be used to disappointment when it comes to “dream fights” at this point, but that initial sting never really goes away. With a very public feud with former Strikeforce Women’s Featherweight Champion Cris “Cyborg” leading up to her first defense of the bantamweight title last night, it didn’t take long for Ronda Rousey to get on the stick and call out the Brazilian.

“Cyborg” immediately took to twitter to dispel the notion that she was willing to make the move to bantamweight, saying “I didn’t change my weight class, I’m where I started.” As if that weren’t enough, the Chute Boxe fighter immediately followed up by stating that was waiting to be released because Strikeforce dissolved her division, even saying she’ll likely fight for Invicta FC soon.

This came as a shock to Scott Coker first and foremost, who, befuddled, told MMA Weekly “I don’t understand why she’d be saying that since we just had a 145-pound fight on the card tonight.” No one can be sure what’s going on inside Cyborg’s head, but for now, it looks like a match-up between her and the Olympic judoka has become just another pipe dream.
