    For clarity and to recognize how much of a stud DJ is..

    DJ was being challenged by a larger fighter (TJ) who is a legit contender & 2 time UFC champion.

    Cyborg is being challenged by opponents who are the same size (MA) or smaller (AN) and lack the credentials of TJ.

    And wasnt part of the issue for DJ a money thing? Didnt DJ say if the UFC wants him to challenge a larger champion, he wants to be paid as a super fight should?

    It’s a completely different argument because 125 has really good fighters while 145 has bantamweights who are mostly trash and don’t want to cut weight.

    DJ would literally kill any 125er who fights like Pam Sorenson, and that’s Cyborg contingency plan to Anderson to “help grow the division.”

    This is on the UFC. Bellator filled out a women's FW division faster and while the UFC had Cyborg under contract. Ridiculous.

    So its similar in the fact they would both rather fight someone in their own division.

    These mutherfuckers could be twinzies.

    Normal people: “Wow. Good story on Stipe and his mother.”
    Cyborg: “How can I make this about me in the most awkwardly passive aggressive way possible?”

    It’s like we’re watching Tito’s career all over again.

    Nope. Conor is ducking Khabib and Tony. Cyborg is ducking Nunes. Nothing to see here.

    I think the term "ducking" gets thrown around a lot, needlessly

    Anytime someone has a preference, the other option is the thing they "ducked." Which makes the whole term and implication weird.

    So I have a crazy idea: Why not say champs can't choose fights? Where's Mark Wayne Mullen when you need him?!

    Yes I agree with you on both counts. Just because cyborg said she would prefer to fight someone else doesn't mean she is ducking. Now, if she's outright refusing to sign a bout agreement, that's different.

    Connor, now that's a whole 'nother issue

    If I'm inviting anyone to my storm shelter, it's Amanda Ribas and her dick pills.

    Love Cyborgs attitude. Willing to fight anybody, wants to promote WMMA, wants to promote her division. What's not to like. :biggrin:
