White unsure of what will happen with "Cyborg"
The proposed fight between Ronda Rousey and Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos has long been the fight that the world has wanted to see in Women' MMA. However, according to Dana White, after the weight issue debacle, he doesn't even think the Brazilian wants the fight.
On Tuesday's UFC Tonight, White commented on the dealings of the possible fight:
"[Bantamweight] is the only division we have," White said. "It's been real interesting. You know, I've been in the fight game since I was 19 years old and I've been doing this for 15 years and what I get out of this deal with Cyborg is that she wants nothing to do with Ronda Rousey. She does not want to fight Ronda Rousey.
"We don't have a 145-pound women's division, so I don't know how this is going to end up. It's been weird."
In the past few weeks , Tito Ortiz, who serves as the manager for Santos, has stated that she will try to make the 135 lbs weight limit. However if the drop in weight proves to risky for her health, it will not happen.
The UFC has even offered the services of nutritionist Mike Dolce, who is world renowned for his ability to help fighters cut huge amounts of weight safely. Dolce, who has been in contact with Santos, stated that he could get her to shed to the weight in 48 hours and still be in great shape. He also stated that not only would "Cyborg" be better at 135 than 145, she would also defeat the UFC women's champion Rousey as well.
