Former Strikeforce women’s featherweight champion, Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos spoke with fightersonlymag.com and changed her tune about dropping weight to face current bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, explaining she’s prepared to meet her half-way and fight at 140 pounds.
“The 145-pound division is my category, but I can drop until 140 pounds to fight her. It does not depend on me, it is up to the event. My business is to fight inside the cage and do not trash talk outside the fence. I’m available for the event [to talk to me] on those terms.
I continue being the champion of my division. The belt was mine and the last fight ended in a no-contest. What I have done for the sport is a landmark regardless of anything else and I will keep doing what I always did, which is giving my best inside the cage.”
Rousey is undefeated at 6-0 in her mixed martial arts career, capturing the title in March when she defeated Miesha Tate before beating former champion, Sarah Kaufman in August.
Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos, is not eligible to fight until January 2013, due to suspension, stemming from a failed drug test this past December.
