Talk of medical advice and risks to health cuts no ice with Ronda Rousey.
The UFCâs female bantamweight champion has poured scorn on Cris Cyborg Santosâ claims that doctors wonât let her drop to 135lbs to enable a fight to happen.
âThis whole spiel about how âmy doctor says itâs going to hurt my heart and my ability to have babies,â well, you can find your own doctor to think whatever you want to,â Rousey said to the Las Vegas Sun.
âRegardless of that, where was all this concern about her heart and having babies in the future when she was shooting steroids up her (butt)? Anyone with half of a brain can see sheâs using this to her advantage just because it happens to work for her right now.â
âThis is the type of person who comes into fights pumped full of steroids, which is criminally negligent in putting these other girls in danger. Sheâs walking in with a weapon pretty much when they donât.
âI donât see where the sense of entitlement comes to where she thinks they should be creating new divisions for her and doing all this stuff for her. I feel like, youâve been exposed and defamed as a fraud. Youâre the one that should be making these changes to try to prove yourself.â
On Feb. 23, Rousey will make her first defence of the UFC title when she faces Liz Carmouche, 8-2 to Rouseyâs 6-0. Pundits are predicting another armbar victory for Rousey but Carmouche is very ground-savvy and the fight is unlikely to be the walkover that many are expecting.
