Rousey was overweight at 145. Cyborg is a 170 - 180 pounder cutting to 145.
Not arguing that.. point still stands..Ronda left the weight class to avoid Cyborg and avoided her the rest of her career..
Stanozolol is typically used as a cutter, but the main principle behind it is using it to retain muscle mass while dropping weight. They typically use it to look more cut in bodybuilding competitions in Cyborgs case it was likely a matter of her making weight and just using it a little to close to the fight that it got flagged . It still does the same things as steroids it's just not as good in for using it muscle as other options out there but there are performance enhancing aspects to it. It's considered a safer steroid though and one that is used more commonly by women because it has less detrimental side implications compared to others. I don't think we can claim this as Cyborg trying to be smaller by any stretch.
Probably the most famous person caught using it was Ben Johnson and at the time he got popped he was smashing world records in the 100m races so you can't write it off as not performance enhancing.
Just like when you look at Harvey Weinstein, you say, "yeah, that guy rapes," so it goes with Cyroid and steirborgs.
I think the one good outcome (if he wins), will be that Frankie will be an undeniable #1 contender with some fan enthusiasm behind him. And, in this era of the UFC, it's important to have a clear case that you're the most believable contender who can draw the most eyeballs.
The only thing that really bugs me is that we lose seeing these two after proper camps. Same problem that I had with Mendes/McGregor.
Frankie could retire and still be a #1 contender
Curses Troddon, every time this thread pops up I think it's going to be sexy Cyborg photos
why would I do that?
Im a heterosexual male
besides, all the magic in Middle Earth couldnt make pictures of cyborg sexy
so the UFC is giving everyone a great main card before one of the most lopsided MMA main events in recent history
was randy couture/james toney II not available?
Is this the first title fight in recent UFC where they didnt have a stock photo available for promotion?
I wouldnt be surprised if some of Rondas fights were like that
some of her promos wouldnt even mention who she was fighting
sorry, I mean 'fighting'
Mackenzie Dem is on the card? This is a sweet card in my book. You have a giant, a p4p great, and a blood sacrifice. Sign me up. Can’t wait.
Yea, for everybody shitting on the main event it's still a pretty solid card.
the main card and prelims are both stacked
I think it's the kind of card that does well with hardcore fans but fails terribly with a broader base of PPV sales, which is shame. And the crazy thing is it might be one of the better WMMA representations in a while: a prospect, the return of an awesome veteran, and (to quote Miz) a blood sacrifice. Pretty awesome.
That said, how in the holy fuck does the UFC not have pictures of Dern up?! It's like they're trying to fuck this thing up.
I think it'll clear 250-350,000. Which ain't bad nowadays
She fought the majority of her judo career as well as winning an Olympic medal at 154 pounds.
Instead of attempting to fight Cyborg who had a title defense in December, aftet her fight in November called out Miesha Tate and dropped to 135.
I think she saw a clear path to be a dominate champion, and that included not ever fighting Cyborg.
I like this breakdown (below). There's some other good stuff in that thread.
