You know, it doesn’t matter what the fans want, alright? Dana White is going to do what Dana White does, that much should be clear to everyone by now. The big fight for the UFC’s Women’s Bantamweight division is Ronda Rousey vs. Cris “Cyborg” Justino, especially with Cyborg dropping Tito Ortiz as her manager and claiming that she’ll cut to 135lbs to get a shot at Rousey. But, of course, Dana White is here to slow things down and pop a few balloons from our hot little hands.
According to White, especially after some of Tito Ortiz’s previous comments about Cyborg being unable to cut to 135lbs, he wants to see her fight at the weight a few times before considering it. [source]
“I think the genius [Ortiz] put her in a box, because saying that you’ll die if you make 135 pounds is a pretty bold statement,” White said. “She’ll probably have to make 135 pounds a couple times somewhere else and fight and show that she’s healthy, and then we’ll see what happens.”
