Looks like Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino doesn’t care about winning the UFC belt but is simply keen on caving Ronda Rousey’s face In, according to Tito Ortiz.
During her recent appearance on Howard Stern Show to promote her new book, “My Fight/Your Fight,” Ronda Rousey slammed Cristiane Justino stating that she is not skilled at all and that her “technique just sucks.”
Bellator’s light heavyweight contender, Tito Ortiz recently weighed in on Ronda Rousey vs. Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino, which without a doubt is one of the most controversial potential fights of the past years.
Ortiz, who says he is in constant contact with the Brazilian mixed martial artist noted that Justino could possibly not make the 135-pound weight class to chase “Rowdy” for a title match, which apparently is good since the former Strikeforce and current Invicta FC featherweight champion is not really keen on getting her hands on the UFC belt but rather is just interested in “caving Ronda Rousey’s face in.”
According to records on MMA Mania , Ortiz said, “I really don’t think Cris can make it down to 135.”
He added, “140 is probably about the closest she can get, but as I talk to Cris over and over again, she says that she don’t really care about the title, she just wants to cave Ronda’s face in. So, Ronda needs to stop running, but hey, that’s her choice. That’s how it is.”
A few weeks ago, Ortiz posted a video claiming it shows why Ronda Rousey is ducking” Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino.
“This is why Ronda Rousey won’t fight Cris Cyborg,” Ortiz captioned the video. “Anyone who thinks she is slow, come to the sparring sessions. It’s all fun and games until you get punched in the face. All you guys are welcome to the session also.”
“Cyborg” has long been rumored to be next in line for a shot at the UFC’s most dominant female fighter, however he inability to make weight has been the biggest barrier in the potential match, International Business Times noted.
Justino was slated to make her debut at 135 pounds last December; however a serious ankle injury held her back and curbed her hopes of a title shot with the UFC’s queen bee.
The UFC signed her last February prior to her first round win over Charmaine Tweet.
